The National Social Security Authority (NSSA) will from next month start giving out US$800 for funeral enhancement for pensioners with an upward pension payments review set for the second quarter of this year.

In a bid to turnaround the fortunes of NSSA, the board embarked on a number of structural changes to get a return on investment. The processes that the board embarked on for the past 20 months seem to be yielding positive results as plans are underway to review upwards pension payments.

Briefing journalists in Harare, NSSA board chairman Mr Robin Vela said his organisation is looking forward to paying an enhanced and sustainable pension with a number of packages available which will deliver value to pensioners.
