[19/09/2023] – In a bid to ensure a secure and comfortable retirement for its staff, the Human Resource Department of the Nsawam Adoagyiri Municipal Assembly recently partnered with the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) to organize a one-day capacity building workshop on retirement planning. This workshop, aimed at enlightening and empowering the assembly’s staff on the importance of retirement planning, was a significant step toward securing their financial future.
The workshop brought together employees from various departments of the municipal assembly and was held at the Assembly Hall. It was graced by key speakers and experts in the field of retirement planning who shared their insights and expertise.
One of the primary objectives of the workshop was to raise awareness about the significance of early retirement planning and financial literacy. Many employees often overlook the importance of saving for retirement, leading to financial difficulties during their post-employment years. By partnering with SSNIT, the Nsawam Adoagyiri Municipal Assembly aimed to equip its staff with the knowledge and tools necessary to make informed decisions about their retirement.
Throughout the day, attendees engaged in informative sessions and workshops covering topics such as investment options, pension benefits, and the role of SSNIT in securing their retirement future. Participants had the opportunity to ask questions and seek clarification from the experts, fostering a more comprehensive understanding of the retirement planning process.
In a valuable addition to the workshop, SSNIT representatives came prepared to facilitate quick access to essential services. They brought in equipment to print statements for staff, enabling employees to have up-to-date information about their contributions and benefits. Moreover, SSNIT provided an avenue for contributors to change or update their beneficiaries, ensuring that their loved ones would be well taken care of in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
Furthermore, SSNIT also addressed complaints from employees regarding employers who had not paid their contributions. This commitment to resolving issues and ensuring that employees’ rights were protected was met with appreciation from the workshop participants.
Speaking at the event, the Municipal Assembly’s Human Resource Department Head, Mr. Prince Akoto, expressed gratitude for SSNIT’s partnership and highlighted the assembly’s commitment to the welfare of its employees. “We believe that a well-informed workforce is essential, not only for their individual well-being but also for the overall development of the assembly,” Mr. Prince Akoto stated. “This workshop is just the beginning of our efforts to ensure that our staff can retire comfortably and enjoy their golden years.”
The workshop concluded with a renewed sense of awareness and commitment among the assembly’s staff to take proactive steps toward securing their financial future through effective retirement planning. As employees left the event armed with valuable knowledge and insights, it was clear that this collaboration between the Nsawam Adoagyiri Municipal Assembly and SSNIT was a significant stride toward a more financially secure retirement for all.
