BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,3RD MARCH 2017-National social security fund on Friday launched a nationwide recruitment drive targeting the youth, informal sector and counties.Speaking at the event held in Nairobi NSSF chairman, Hon Gideon Ndambuki said that an increase in membership and contributions would help Kenyans plan more prudently for their sunset years.During this recruitment drive, NSSF will leverage on its mobile app to deepen penetration among the youth, who have a higher level of interaction with smartphones.
The app also allows members in the counties to access their statements through the phone and use mobile money to pay their contributions without having to go queue at the offices. New members and employers can also register at the comfort of their phones and desktops using the app.
NSSF currently have 2.3 million active members and targets to increase this by 1.5 million through the recruitment drive. The move is also aimed at boosting Kenya’s saving pool for economic growth.
