World Bank supports Ghana to reform pensions system
Over 25 technical staff from the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), National Pensions Regulatory Authority (NPRA), the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations are participating in a four-day workshop organized by the World Bank from June 11th – 14th 2018 on Ghana’s Pensions System and training using the World Bank’s pension model PROST.
“Pensions are crucial in supporting thousands of Ghanaians after retirement. At the same time, sound management of pensions, including a well-developed policy and a program of appropriate reforms will be critical to get on the path to Ghana Beyond Aid,” said World Bank Country Director for Ghana, Henry K.G. Kerali.
“The World Bank is therefore committed to working with the Government of Ghana on developing a smarter and sound pensions system that is affordable for the economy and protects the elderly.”
