Chief Executive Officer of NBC Ghana Trust, William Asiedu Yeboah, has urged workers, especially those in the informal sector to retire right by investing in pension schemes to enable them to enjoy their retirement life.
Speaking on a wide array of issues about pensions and retirement, Mr. Yeboah said “our traditional norms such as funerals, engagements, and outdooring, among others increase the retirement resources needed by each of us, hence the need to invest now for a better future.”
Mr. Yeboah added that there is the need to save for retirement, because every working individual will retire one day, this should not come as a surprise.
It is therefore important for workers to plan their retirement well and enjoy their old age and minimise the burden on their children and other family members, he stressed.
“Retirement is something we all need to consider and start planning as soon as we start our working life. The little we invest today towards our retirement can change our lifestyle, therefore everyone must take pension seriously,” he pointed out.
The NBC CEO further urged industry players to venture into the informal sector, educate our fellow citizens on pension benefits, the various products or services and enroll them for a secured future.
The informal sector workers constitute about 80% of the working population and pension administrators have not been able to enroll most of them onto any retirement package. This, according to Mr. Yeboah provides an opportunity for the private sector pension administrators.
Touching on the operations of pension administrators, he stated that NBC Ghana Trust has the most robust operating system in the industry.
He explained that “we have invested so much into building a very robust system that can be used to manage huge data in the country. With the growing number of clients, it is important we invest in building this kind of system so we can serve our customers better.”
Mr. Yeboah added that all pension administrators have similar products and services, however, “what distinguishes us from the rest is our operating system and the technical support we receive from our partners.”
According to him, the company will keep investing in its systems with trending technology to ensure that clients are satisfied.
