Ghana National Pension Scheme
SSNIT renews enforcement drive
In February this year (2013), the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) published a newspaper advertorial on the need for expatriates working in Ghana to contribute to social security. This is to clarify the ambiguity associated with the regulations in the past where expatriates working in Ghana do not consider themselves as falling within the provisions of the Ghana Pension Scheme.
Employers have now been reminded that their obligation on pension contributions cover the entire workforce. Based on the renewed attention being placed on the scheme by SSNIT, it will no longer be business as usual.
