By Ngozi Onyeakusi—The  Pension Transition Arrangement Directorate (PTAD), has launched a digital enrollment initiative called ‘I am Alive’ for pensioners in Nigeria.

Introduction of ” I am Alive ” was born out the desire to tackle the ghost pensioner debacle, the nations pension industry.

Speaking in Abuja in a press conference during the unveiling of project, the PTAD Executive Secretary, Dr. Chioma Ejikeme, said the initiative would be used to biometrically capture pensioners on any smart phone to confirm that they are still alive and eligible for payments. The PTAD boss explained that the scheme would facilitate easier, faster and more friendly verification for the senior citizens as well as enable the Directorate to eliminate deceased beneficiaries from its database to conserve funds to pay those alive. “I am Alive” Confirmation Solutions is a web-based software designed to enable our pensioners easily confirm their lives from the comfort of their homes or neighbourhood, using either a smartphone or a computer system. Ejikeme said: “This solution takes the pensioner through a three-step confirmation process that ends with a text message response.
