According to him, the initiative is part of the commission’s programmes to enhance and improve its service delivery to all retirees in the state.
“The new portal will be useful in checking the progress of documents under processing and also assist retirees to check status of retirement bond certificate processing.
“Retirees will also be able to fill forms for issuance of identification cards for health insurance and other social intervention.
“The portal will serve as a single portal for classified information for retirees to update their personal records,” he said.
Obilana urged the retirees to key into using of the portal to scan and send all their documents to the commission through firstname.lastname@example.org or help email@example.com in order to eradicate constant visit to the commission.
