Your perfect partner for financial independence on retirement

Published

ARTICLE

Everybody wants to live a soft life. Comfort is a part of human nature, and in most cases, having financial independence helps with comfort.

Planning for your pension is one of the most important aspects of having a soft life. At a time when one is presumably not actively working, putting money aside for retirement is key.

Pension planning for financial independence is largely dependent on the time one has concerning pension age. The earlier the better, as it cushions the number and amount of contributions to be made for a set target.

Most people think it’s a hustle and a load of work to plan for retirement. To them, ‘money no dey’ to even put some aside. However, finding the right partner to make this pension journey worth your while can be an interesting challenge to take on. That’s where the People’s Pension Trust comes in to help.

The People’s Pension Trust (PPT) is a licensed Corporate Trustee that offers innovative, flexible, and digitally driven pension products to ensure retirement income security for workers.
PPT aims to reduce old-age poverty by offering flexible and high-quality pension products for both formal and informal sector workers in Ghana and regionally.
The Trust also plans to provide some one million informal workers, locally and regionally, with a tailor-made pension product by 2025.

PPT’s values include innovation, trust, respect and service, by always representing the interest of the worker in fairness and integrity, embracing diversity and opinions, continuously developing products using the latest technology, and offering quality and reliable service.
The Trust has various offices across the country, which can be in Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi, Suhum, Tamale and Osino in the Fanteakwa District.
The products and services available to workers include the PPT Personal Pension Scheme, which targets the informal sector and is designed to provide additional funds for formal sector workers who want to enhance their retirement benefits.

PPT Occupational Pension Scheme also allows both employers and employees of a registered entity to fulfill their mandatory pension obligations whilst relieving them of trustee duties.
Meanwhile, the PPT Provident Fund Scheme is an optional contributory scheme that provides employees with additional retirement lump sums to complement mandatory pension schemes.
The PPT Third Party Scheme Administrative Service also offers third-party administration of registered group personal pension schemes under a Scheme Management Agreement with the Board of Trustees of the pension scheme.

Speaking about PPT, Mr Kofi Eba-Miezah Polley, the Chief Operations Officer said “As a pension company our goal is to ensure a decent retirement income security for formal and informal workers, to ultimately eradicate old age poverty. We are leveraging technology to introduce especially the informal sector to financial inclusion. We believe that with effective retirement planning through our digitized personal pension scheme everyone can look forward to a better tomorrow”.

Call for entries: Lifebuoy Opens Applications for handwashing ‘Chief Education Officers’

Published

Lifebuoy GHD CEO Globle KV002

Unilever’s Lifebuoy, the world’s number one hygiene soap brand, has launched a creative competition that will see two (2) Chief Education Officers aged between 6-12years appointed to raise awareness on the importance of handwashing among school children.

Leveraging the power of peer-to-peer learning, the ‘CEOs’ will be selected from public and private schools in Ghana to help create impact by teaching other children about handwashing and personal hygiene in a series of fun and exciting activities.

The campaign dubbed ‘Lifebuoy H for handwashing CEOs’ is part of Lifebuoy’s activities to mark Global Handwashing Day which occurs every year on the 15th of October.

 Global handwashing day is an international handwashing campaign dedicated to motivating and mobilizing people worldwide to improve their handwashing habits as a strategy for disease prevention.

In 2020, Lifebuoy launched the H for Handwashing campaign to transform the letter H into a symbol for handwashing and to integrate hygiene awareness into the school curriculum. In 2021, Lifebuoy launched its first ever children’s book- an “H for Handwashing” alphabet book – in which children can explore the Alphabet with Azzy the horse. The book is intended to support school curricula all over the world, whenever and wherever children are taught the ABCs.

This year, Lifebuoy is going a step further by passing on the baton to the next generation who will teach their peers about handwashing, as studies have shown that children are more likely to change their behaviour when influenced by their peers.

Lifebuoy is encouraging Children from public and private schools in Ghana between the ages of 6-12years to take up this unique and exciting challenge.

Parents, Guardians and Teachers are also urged to encourage their children and pupils to participate in the competition by following these guidelines:

  • Share a 30- 45 seconds video of your child reciting their campaign manifesto by explaining what hygiene means to them and how they will promote better hygiene in their schools.
  • All entries must include the #GHD2022 #LifebuoyCEOgh #LifebuoyGHD22 #HforHandwashing hashtag and be submitted on Facebook and Instagram only via the brand’s pages @LifebuoyGhana.
  • Entries are open until the 10th of October, 2022.

The two selected CEOs will get the chance to become part of Lifebuoy’s award-winning ‘H for Handwashing’ movement and receive a certificate from the Unilever Ghana Leadership Team for their participation and commitment to the cause.  As part of celebrations to mark Global Handwashing Day, they will also visit the Unilever headquarters and factories to teach employees the importance of handwashing

The ‘CEOs’ will commit a minimum of ten hours a year to help spread the message of handwashing with soap to other children, at home and in schools. To enable them perform their roles, they will be trained in the use of Lifebuoy’s decade-old and well-proven  behaviour change material which will equip them to take the message forward.

Customers registering their SIM cards at Temporary Registration point at Goaso in Ahafo Region

With only three days to the  September 30, 2022 deadline for SIM registration, MTN is urging its customers to have their SIM cards fully registered to avoid being disconnected.

All customers with voice and data SIM in phones and devices are mandated to register with the Ghana card before the deadline. All SIM cards that are not fully registered at the end of 30th September 2022 will be disconnected from using all services on the network.

Customers who are yet to register should start the process by dialing *404# or use the registration web portal https://simregistrationportal.mtn.com.gh to link their SIM to the Ghana card. Customers who have linked their SIM cards to the Ghana card can complete their registration by either visiting the nearest service centre/agent for the biometric capture or download the SIM Registration Self Service app on google play to complete the registration.

“Customers who are not sure of their status can check their registration status by dialing *400#. “B-Cap Yes” means a customer is fully registered”.

To ensure all customers are fully registered before the 30th of September 2022 deadline, all MTN field staff have been deployed to different locations to check registration status and register customers who have not yet registered their SIM cards.

The Ministry of Communications and Digitalization announced the mandatory re-registration of all SIM cards in Ghana last year. The registration exercise which started in October 2021 is scheduled to end on September 30, 2022.
