Anger brews over delayed payment of old-age pensions

Anger continues to brew among seniors regarding delays in the payment of their pensions.

In February, the decision had been taken to pay pensions on the fourth working day.

However, the payment was delayed this week, triggering a wave of discontent among those who need the money to buy medicines and pay bills.

Several pensioners have narrated their hardships caused by the delayed payment on radio stations over the past days.

These interventions often culminated with tears and fierce criticisms of “incompetence” and “lack of humanity” against the government.

Deputy Commissioner for Social Security, Navin Kumar Caleechurn, reportedly explained that the payment will be made on March 7.

He explained that the money is paid on the 4th working day of each month, and not on the 4th of each month – i.e around 5th or 7th day of every month.

The only minister who intervened so far on the wave of criticisms has been Joe Lesjongard, Minister of Public Utilities and President of the MSM.

He claimed just been apprised of the suffering of pensioners affected by the late payment of their pensions. However, he claimed had “no further information to share with the press.”
