List Of Tier 2 Pension Companies In Ghana. November 2022

0

A time will come for an employee to rely on his/her pension after he/she has retired. For this reason, the National Pension Scheme was constituted by the National Pensions Act, Act 766 to guarantee that every Ghanaian worker receives retirement benefits as and when due.

The National Pensions Act, Act 766 was passed on the 12th December, 2008 to mandate the formation of a new contributory 3- Tier Pension Scheme.  

With respect to Act 766, all workers in both the private and the public sector must be covered by the contributory 3- Tier Pension Scheme. However, it’s facultative for the self employed. 

The National Pensions Regulatory Authority (NPRA) was mandated by Act 766 to oversee the operations of the 3- tier pension scheme

Moreover, the National Pensions Regulatory Authority (NPRA) is responsible for the registering of occupational pension schemes, provident funds, and personal pension schemes.

Pension Scheme

This is a benefit scheme whereby an employer and an employee chip in a fund that is invested to provide the employee with a pension on retirement either as a rente (an annuity), or as a chunk sum.

The 3- Tier Pension Schemes In Ghana

First Tier (Tier 1)

The tier 1 is an obligatory basic national social security scheme for all workers in Ghana and it is managed by SSNIT

Second Tier (Tier 2)

The tier 2 is an obligatory occupational pension scheme for workers in Ghana and it is managed privately by approved Trustees.

Third Tier (Tier 3)

The tier 3 is a voluntary Provident Fund /Personal pension scheme outside the tier 1 and the tier 2, and it is meant for workers in the informal sector.

Contribution Rates And How They Are Distributed

The worker(s) contribute(s) 5.5% of workers’ basic salary and also, the employer contributes 13% of the workers’ basic salary and that is 18.5% workers’ basic salary in total. 

Following the end of the month and within 14 days, the employer is mandated to remit 13.5% of the total 18.5% workers’ basic salary, to the obligatory tier- 1 Basic Social Security Scheme which is managed by SSNIT.

Then again, out of the 13.5% paid to SSNIT, 2.5% is sent to the NHIS for the worker’s health insurance. The remaining 5% is sent to the mandatory tier- 2 Occupational Scheme
