The National Pensions Regulatory Authority has organised an outreach programme at Talensi District Assembly in the Upper East Region to educate and sensitize both formal and informal sector workers on the Three Tier Pension Scheme. The outreach programme was specifically, to encourage the informal sector workers in the area to join and actively participate in pension schemes to alleviate old age poverty.
Officials of NPRA in their speech expressed their delight for the huge turn up of various informal sector groups and individual traders present. They thanked the various group leaders and everyone present for making time to attend the forum. They also assured them that pension funds are very secured and should they decide to join and contribute to the scheme, their monies will be well guarded and non will go missing.
