PTAD unveils “I Am Alive” confirmation solution for pensioners

The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) has unveiled the “I Am Alive’’, an online confirmation (IAAC) solution, to ease pensioners’ stress.

The Executive Secretary (ES) of PTAD, Dr Chioma Ejikeme, unveiled the solution in Abuja on Friday.

Ejikeme said PTAD has kept to its promise of ending the era of bringing out aged pensioners for physical verification.

She said that the application was designed to enable pensioners under the Defined Benefits Scheme (DBS) easily confirm their aliveness from the comfort of their homes using either a smartphone or a computer system.

She explained that the pilot phase was largely successful, having identified and resolve all teething challenges.

ES added that PTAD will fully roll out the IAAC solution to the pensioners.

“We believe this is a way forward as far as validation of the aliveness of our pensioners is concerned.

“We wish to assure our pensioners that we designed the “I Am Alive” confirmation solution with your welfare in mind.

“It ensures accuracy, reliability, user-friendliness and convenience,” Ejikeme said.

According to her, the application is available to all PTAD-verified pensioners across the four Departments.

She listed the departments as Police Pensioners, Customs, Immigration and Prisons Pensioners, Civil Service Pensioners as well as Parastatals Pensioners.

“The platform is simple and easy to use and the directorate has provided a short video for instructions.

“Pensioners can access IAAC solution, using a smart mobile phone, a desktop or any computer device with Internet access.

“The journey to test and provide this solution took PTAD over 18 months.

“These have been challenging months that stretched us as an organisation.

“We worked to ensure that we deliver our service ethos of “Empathy” for our pensioners’ welfare.

“We are proud of our efforts and are hopeful that the solution will have a positive impact on our DBS pensioners, PTAD and the government in general,” Ejikeme said.

In her remarks, the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, encouraged all the pensioners to enrol on the solution.

Ahmed, who was represented by the Director of Human Resources in the ministry, Mrs Omobola Olushola-Dada, commended the directorate for unveiling the online platform.
