He said since it began its operations at Akim Oda in 1972, SSNIT had protected its customers on pension from any form of wretchedness.
Mr Kotey gave the advice in an interview with the Ghana News Agency after the launch of the 50th Anniversary celebration of SSNIT in Ghana, at Akim Oda on the theme: ” Social Security – Then, Now and Beyond.”
He recalled that SSNIT was established in Ghana in 1965 with the objective of improving the socio-economic development of the country, by protecting the financial status of pensioners.
Mr Kotey said the Akim Oda branch had registered firms and enterprises, both private and public communities, like Ofoase, Achiase, and Akim Swedru.
The Branch Manager said frequent outreach programmes about the scheme at public forums, churches and social gatherings were being conducted monthly.
“With technological advancement SSNIT is undertaking biometric registration, whilst the Operation Business Suite (OBS) system to detect any establishment refusing to contract the social security scheme is underway for maximum ease of operation.”
