Benefits of the NSSF GO Mobile App to members

New features added to the upgraded NSSF Go Mobile App
- Contributions payment: Members can now seamlessly complete their NSFF payments using the app through a simple 4-step process. You should however be subscribed to either Airtel or MTN money for this. Employers also still require a Transaction Reference Number from the e- collections portal to complete the payment process.
- E- Statement: You can get your account information including interest earned from the time you started contributing and the last contribution received on your account. This information can be sliced and diced in many different ways for example sorting information by employer, by amount, by date, by entry type (interest or normal contribution), e.t.c.
- Contacts update : You can update your email & phone number yourself without going to any NSSF offices
- Retirement projections: It shows the projected balance you will have at any age at a specific interest based on your current salary.
- Simple log-ins : You don't need to remember your NSSF number now. Simply enter your registered phone number (i.e. the number on which you receive your monthly sms alerts). The app will verify this number and automatically log you into your NSSF account.
- Profile Summary : This shows your NSSF number, registered phone, email, and the date you started making contributions to the Fund.
- Salary Growth Rate : The app takes your average annual salary and determines an annual growth rate based on linear regression. You can also get the trend of your average annual salary.
- Employment History : Shows the employee any contributions received from where, and how much you have saved in total.
- Direct contact to your Relationship Manger through call or email
