|PSPF trains members how to secure loan|
|Published On: 3rd Dec 2012|
VARIOUS public primary school head teachers in Dar es Salaam’s district of Ilala, have undergone pension education, one of the responsibilities of Public Service Pension Fund (PSPF).
The one-day seminar has enabled the teachers to understand the advantages of pension, aims, various benefits offered by the fund, contributions to the fund, canons, procedures of payments and how to get a house loan.
Speaking during the seminar on Friday in the city, Senior Operations Officer of PSPF and Facilitator, Mr Francis Mselemu, said that the education will quench teachers’ thirst for knowing the PSPF activities. He said that many members had doubt about their money, thinking it would be misused on various investments the organization made.
“The head teachers will have opportunity to understand how we do our things, and later to teach others in their working areas,” he said. Mr Mselemu said that the seminar would enable the members to know the procedures taken before claiming their pension later and what the easy way to do so was.
Meanwhile, the organization has been facing several challenges including early verification and the completion of the documents by the employer and employee in the period of retirement. The Public Relation Officer of PSPF, Ms Fatma Elhady said that many members delayed to complete their pension payment documents for immediate transactions.
“If they come early we also solve their problems early and start payment immediately. The problem comes when they retire without even completing their documents which also delay their payments procedures,” she explained.
When opening the seminar on behalf of the Ilala Director, the Ilala Development and Social Welfare Officer, Mr Ellioth Mwasabwite said that the municipal was ready to help public workers if they needed assistance from the office. However, the Headmistress of Misewe, Segerea Ward, Ms Wikiwa Kileo said that the seminar had made her know her rights of getting her pension when she would retire.
