DG Transforms NASSIT

The Director General of the National Social Security and Insurance Trust (NASSIT), Mohamed Fuad Bador has said on Friday May 17, 2019, that between January to March 2019, they were able to collect a total of Le 111.83 billion as contributions from both public and private sector establishments.

The Director General was speaking at a one-day media seminar on the NASSIT scheme at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Freetown. He said that in the area of benefits payment, “as at March, 2019, we have 21,537 pensioners on our payroll, and total benefits expenditure (pensions, gratuity & Grants) for the period January to March 2019 amounted to Le 47, 99 billion”.

“Members of the press, as at the end first quarter of 2019, we have 15,559 registered institutions and 223,475 insured members,” he said.

Fuad Dabor said that all arrangements for operationalisation of the Social Security Court have been finalized. “We will soon come out with a statement as to the commencement of the sittings of the court,” he said.

He reemphasized that operations and benefits payment are at the forefront of their business as they are the reason for the establishment of the scheme.

“As a proof of the importance my management attaches to the core operations of the scheme, recently, the Trust Commissioned and handed over fifteen (15) motorbikes to our Inspectors to enhance their mobility in carrying out their duties. We have also provided training for these Inspectors in their areas of operations, including social security compliance. It is our conviction that if the Trust is to succeed in achieving its man date of registering members, collecting contributions, enforcing compliance, and paying benefit, the staff must be armed with both the requisite skills, knowledge and equipment to carry out their duties” Fuad Dabor said.

He also spoke about the launching of the telephone hotlines for customers. “These hotlines, which are available via both Orange and Africell networks, are aimed at providing an opportunity for members of the public to easily contact the Trust with their concerns, queries and suggestions. I want to report to this august body that the telephone hotlines are huge success. Today, our customers and even the general public are easily and conveniently accessing our services at the con fort of their places,” he said.

The director general said, “In the last press briefing, I also spoke about the Trust’s moves to establish a regional office in Poto Loko, which is the headquarters of the northwest region. By way of update, we are putting finishing touches to the rented premises, and very soon, you will all be invited to the opening ceremony of the Northwest Regional Office. As I indicated earlier, our presence to service this region means we are not only taking our services closer to our customers but also to replicate what has been done in other regions.”
