The Government Institutions Pension Fund (GIPF), called on young annuitants or beneficiaries to submit their proof of enrolment from their schools at the nearest GIPF office on time to avoid any delays in the processing of their benefits.

GIPF Marketing and Stakeholders Engagement Manager Edwin Tjiramba, made the call yesterday, urging parents and guardians to assist school-going kids while it is the beginning of the academic year.

He said one of the key components of the Fund’s Corporate Strategy is to ensure that its members are well-informed and aware of their benefits.

“Having said that this is the time of the year again when GIPF implores all annuitants (beneficiaries) who are students and are between the ages of 18 years to 25 years old, to submit their signed proof of studentship timeously.

Kindly note that only authorised signatories such as a Principal, Faculty Officer, Rector, Director, Branch Coordinator and or the Deputy Head of Department or anyone acting in that capacity) from the respective schools or institutions of higher education are allowed to sign the studentship letters,” he said.

Tjiramba further advised that if a student took a break in his or her studies due to any unforeseen circumstances, then he or she should submit proof of studentship for payment of benefits to continue until they turn 25.
