PTAD Makes Payment of 33% Pension Arrears

The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) wishes to inform all pensioners under the Defined Benefit Scheme (DBS) that the Directorate has paid another installment of the 33% Pension Arrears owed to its pensioners.

The categories of pensioners affected are as follows:

No. of Months Paid this
No. of Months Paid To Date
Maximum No. of Months Outstanding
Police Pensioners ​12 ​24 ​18
Civil Service Pensioners ​6 ​30 ​12
Parastatal Pensioners

All pensioners under the Customs, Immigration and Prisons Pensions Department had already been paid the 33% arrears in full since August 2016.

The latest payment was made from the Service Wide Vote released last week by the Federal Ministry of Finance (FMF). PTAD will settle the outstanding arrears of the 33% increment as soon as additional releases are made. Until then, the Directorate implores all its pensioners to be patient and continue to exercise vigilance against the activities of fraudsters and rabble-rousers.

Always remember that the payment of pension and other retirement benefits is free.

Please report any incident of extortion to the Directorate or the security agencies.
