IKA pensioners given extension to register [Update]
People receiving pensions from the IKA Social Security Foundation have been granted an extension until October 5 instead of the previous September 28 deadline to register in the organization's census, IKA said, adding that pensioners who fail to turn up by that date will not be receiving a pension for November.
IKA has been conducting a census for several months in order to weed out false claimants.
Pensioners of the country's largest social security fund are required to appear at the bank in which their pension is paid and present valid identification and their pension statement. If they are unable to do so, they can send a representative with a power of attorney or a simple police-issued authorization on which the pensioner's signature has been officially verified.
