NSSF (the National Social Security Fund) members can now access pension services via the Mini App on the M-Pesa Super App.
Customers can now apply for membership, track their contributions, top-up and manage their NSSF account, and make Tenant Purchase Scheme (TPS) payments through the M-PESA Super App’s “Discover” option, thanks to a new cooperation with Safaricom.
The agreement, according to Anthony Omerikwa, Managing Trustee of the NSSF, is part of a strategy to expand the reach of NSSF services via smartphones.
“The demand for NSSF services and the need to save for a pension has gone beyond formally employed people to entrepreneurs, especially those running medium and small businesses,” he said.
As part of the launch, the first 1,000 NSSF members who donate using the NSSF M-PESA Mini App will receive a 10% bonus credited to their account.
Safaricom’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Peter Ndegwa said “the NSSF Mini App will go a long way in providing customers with an exceptional user experience while providing them with the freedom to access services on their smartphones at any time through the M-PESA Super App.”
Customers can use the M-PESA Super App to access a number of products and services, including SGR booking, airline tickets, bus tickets, shopping gift cards, insurance gas delivery, and Pay TV services, all from a single app on their smartphones.
