“The beneficiary who is currently earning such an amount was a private worker who made several contributions to the scheme”, he said.

He also indicated that Beneficiaries who receive their monthly pension stipends from their institution also stand a chance of having a 10% increment annually of whatever they receive every month.

Mr Tenkorang expressed that anyone who is an SSNIT contributor attracts 60% of the salaries he used to have during the time of his working days before going on pension.
