The deadline for the payment of April salaries has been extended. This initiative was embarked upon by the Ministry of Finance as a result of some public sector workers’ failure to enroll onto the SSNIT biometric system.
The workers have been given up to June 15, 2017 to re-register to get their salaries paid.
A statement from the Finance Ministry said currently about 9,000 workers have been paid after their successful validation and also, an additional 3,000 public sector workers are expected to receive their April salaries by the end of this month following the validation by the Finance Ministry.
This follows an order by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta in April, suspending salaries of about 26,500 public sector workers.
A timeline outlined by the Finance Ministry indicated that the affected workers are expected to commence the process leading to payments from May 22, 2017.
At the moment, about 17,000 public sector workers are yet to receive their April salaries.
Also, workers who have already gone through SSNIT biometric registration but were not paid in the initial payments on the 11th of May are to visit SSNIT for proof of registration and further validation.
In addition, workers who have not registered with SSNIT are expected to do so for subsequent validation and payment.
