The Enugu State Government is announcing the verification exercise for the Next of Kin (NOK) of deceased pensioners.

3.⁠ ⁠Separate Account Requirement for Living Pensioners with Joint Accounts.

Living pensioners who hold joint accounts with another person (where both names are listed together) must open a separate individual account for their pension payments. If both pensioners are using one of the other’s account, the second person must also open a separate account. This requirement is essential to ensure smooth processing and accurate disbursement of pension benefits.
