Axis Pension Trust boss pushes for informal sector workers to enroll on scheme

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Axis Pensions Trust, Mr. Afriyie Oware, has called for urgent and radical actions to bring more informal sector workers on board pension schemes.

According to him, pension issues have become more of a social and economic challenge than before, thus a lot must be done to sensitize the working population not only to encourage them, but also to provide the assistance and support for them to enroll on pension schemes so they can enjoy a comfortable and stress-free retirement.

Speaking at a sensitization workshop on pension issues and financial literacy in Accra, Mr. Afriyie Oware, also noted that people approach retirement with fear, anxiety and desperation, and it is because they did not plan toward retirement.

He noted that Axis, in the last three years, has led a drive for financial inclusion in the informal sector, and embarked on retirement-planning education in the public sector, thus the need for more to be done.

On the pension forum
The Axis pensions forum seeks to equip Axis Pension’s scheme members who are due for retirement in 2020 with pertinent and vital information to life after retirement. There were presentations by the SSNIT; industry regulator National Pensions Regulatory Authority (NPRA); and executives from Axis Pensions.

Director of Research & Planning at the National Pensions Regulatory Authority (NPRA), Ernest Amartey Vondee, in his speech commended Axis Pensions for its contribution to the development of the pension industry.
