KAMPALA – The Uganda Police Force has started validating officers who missed out on previous validations to enable the Ministry of Public Service continue paying their pension.
Addressing journalists, the Deputy Police Spokesperson ACP Polly Namaye said unvalidated officers are expected to appear for this validation exercise in the Ministry of Public Service before 14th July 2019.
ACP Namaye said that any members not highlighted on validation sheets may be deleted from the pensions payroll.
“We have uploaded a list of 1034 unvalidated police pensioners to the police website… Failure to appear for this exercise could result into the officer(s) being deleted from the pensions payroll,” she said
She said, “Officers are encouraged to have their National IDs, an introduction letter from Police (HRM). For the pensioners who died, letters of Administration are also required.”
She noted that survivor benefits for the unvalidated pensioners became effective on 24th March 1994 and any records before this date are not entitled to any monthly benefits as the law was not yet effected.
