Pensioners urged to submit life certificates

Published:Friday | March 11, 2016 | 12:00 AM

The Accountant General's Department (AGD) is urging pensioners who have not submitted their life certificates for the January to March quarter to do so as soon as possible, or risk non-disbursement of their pension payments.

In an interview client services manager at the AGD, Tanisha Weir Grant, said thousands of pensioners are at risk of not receiving their pensions this month after failing to submit their life certificates on time for the quarter.

"Currently, we are seeing that we have about 3,000 pensioners who will be suspended for this month. So, we are asking all our pensioners who have not submitted their life certificates to please do so by at least March 11," Weir Grant said.

Government pensioners are urged to contact the AGD for any additional information or assistance required. They can visit the department at 13 King Street, Kingston, or telephone 750-4967, 750-4965, 750-4974, 750-4926, 750-4962 or toll-free at 1-888-991-3005.

Persons can also email the department at: info@treasury.gov.jm and live chat at www.treasury.gov.jm.
