The Chairman, Military Pensions Board (MPB), Air Vice Marshal Paul Irumheson, says the Federal Government has approved an electronic verification system for military pensioners to ensure sanity in pension administration.


Irumheson speaking at the commencement of the electronic verification exercise nationwide, said the initiative was aimed at sanitising military pension administration and elimination of issues of impersonation.


The chairman said the board adopted an electronic verification system after the board successfully conducted a pilot test from Feb. 15 to March 1, adding that only 15 of the 2,000 pensioners verified failed the process


He also said the little observations noticed had been used to improve on the system, promising that the board will carry out sufficient public awareness to enable pensioners to navigate the system with ease.
