The government of Ghana through its digitization drive will officially merge the Social Security and National Insurance Traut (SSNIT) numbers with the National Identification Authority numbers
Date for merging NIA Numbers with SSNIT
The date for merging the two Cards is June 28th, 2021.
This implies that, from June 28th this year, the NIA Numbers on the Ecowas Identity Cards will the valid as Social Security numbers.
SSNIT from the above date will begin to use the NIA Numbers of members as the means of identifying contributors and in respect of pensions. The merging of the two numbers should not cause any tension among Ghanaians who have not merged the two ID numbers or do not have one of them because the process of merging the two identification numbers will continue until December 31, this year.
However, from January 1, 2022, SSNIT contributors will no longer use their scheme numbers but will transact all business with SSNIT with their Ghana Card. Those who are yet to merge their NIA Numbers to replace SSNIT number have to be proactive as the countdown start on June 28th
The merger is in compliance with Regulation 7 (1) of the National Identity Register Regulations, 2012, LI 2111, and a directive from the National Pensions Regulatory Authority (NPRA).
A similar merger is being done by the Ghana Revenue Authority to enable taxpayers to use their Ghana Card numbers as their Tax Identification Numbers (TINs) however, the date for the rollover is yet to be announced.
Now that you know the Date for merging NIA Numbers with SSNIT numbers, take the necessary steps to ensure you are not left behind.
