IYONKYO: I write on behalf of Mrs Iyonkyo and Ms Iyonkyo, Joint next of kins & admins of estate. They have been involved in the death benefits claim of the Late Mr Iyonkyo since 2006 when the late custom officer died. In 2008, the Nigeria Customs Service referred the case to PTAD where the beneficiaries attended a series of screening in Abuja. Nothing further was heard from PTAD despite several visits and enquiries until late last year when they received a letter dated June 10, 2019 directing the next of kins to liaise with the NCS, the deceased’s PFA and PENCOM to process their claim. The next of kins are confused and humbly request your help in getting to know how to go about the death benefits.

I have done my verification and have done that which is expected of me, yet nothing is forth coming. I have not been paid gratuity or pension. Kindly help me get my little entitlement. Thank you.

BALANGA: Regarding my pension which I complained of since March 6, 2020, over two months now, I am yet to be paid. My PFA is indeed a terrible PFA. What should I do now? After I complained to them about my application being unnecessarily delayed, I got a text from them in April 20, 2020 saying that my application has been sent to PenCom for approval. Since then nothing good came from them. I regret choosing this PFA.

Do watch out for the newspaper publication next Wednesday for a response from the commission and subsequently every week for pension news.
