The Ministry of Social Integration, Social Security and National Solidarity would like to inform those who were unable to recover their pension in the post office for March following the national lockdown that these pensions will be distributed to their homes.
The home pension distribution exercise will involve approximately 13,000 people, those whose names fall into the alphabetical category of Q to R and S to Z, who should have received their pensions in the post office on Wednesday, 10 March and Saturday, March 13, respectively.
The beneficiaries concerned are those who receive retirement pension, invalidity pension, widow’s pension, orphan’s pension.
′′ I want to reassure our recipients that we have made all the necessary arrangements to ensure that pensions are paid at home. Following a meeting between my Ministry, Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies, Mauritius Post Ltd and Police, it has been decided that this home payment service will be provided by Mauritius Post Ltd with support from The police. The payment exercise will start tomorrow, Saturday, March 13, in the afternoon and will spread over a few days explains Fazila Jeewa-Daureeawoo, Minister of Social Integration, Social Security and National Solidarity.
Note, however, that the payment of pensions will be made by region to facilitate distribution.
Recipients must present their IDs and pension cards to officers.
All health instructions will be respected to ensure this exercise is done properly.
