“For this reason, funds are released monthly into the RSA of employees, and also the accrued rights are gradually been cleared,” LASPEC said in a statement by its Director-General, Mrs Folashade Onanuga.

The commission also said the pensioners there was a move by the National Pension Commission (PenCom) to execute the Pension Law on guaranteed Minimum Pension for life.
