The National Council of the Ghana National Association of Teachers GNAT has called for the immediate payment of their member’s Tier 2 contribution to the Ghana Education Service Occupational Pension Scheme.
On Tuesday 16th November 2021, the National Council of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) stated that they have noted the failure of the Controller and Accountant General Department to remit their members Tier 2 for July, August, September, and October 2021 to the Ghana Education Service Occupational Pension Scheme (GESOPS).
During the annual meeting held by the National Council of GNAT at GNAT village near Ejisu, the Council explained that the failure of GNAT to remit members contribution is in contravention of section 96(2) and 64 of pension act, 2008, Act 766 which enjoins Controller and Accountant General Department to remit members contribution within fourteen days at the end of every month.
The National Council of GNAT, therefore, has drawn the attention of the National Pension Regulatory Authority (NPRA) to this anomaly of CAGD and then called for the Ministry of Finance to release funds for the prompt payment of their member’s contributions for the four months that have not been paid.
GNAT has also called the ministry of Finance to pay 3% percent for July, August, September, and October 2021 that CAGD failed to pay without any further delay.
