AN extensive campaign to educate people on financial, pension fund related matters and empower them to make well informed financial decisions during challenging economic times was recently launched by the Government Institutions Pension Fund (GIPF).
In a statement issued by the Chief Executive Officer of the GIPF, David Nuyoma said that the institution is proud to announce that it will embark on an extensive Financial Literacy Campaign, which will be running until 30 August this year.
“The wellbeing of our members features at the core of our corporate strategy and the Fund is fully cognizant of the challenging economic times our members are faced with. It is against this background that the Fund decided to undertake a thorough campaign to educate members on financial, pension fund related matters and empower them to make well informed financial decisions when they retire or resign,” Nuyoma said.
The campaign will illustrate various scenarios and options on how best to manage finances after resignation or retirement and will provide relatable examples of how members may best optimize their benefits.
’’GIPF strives to be a leading and model pension fund globally and in order to achieve this, the Fund will ensure that our members reap and enjoy the benefits due to them as we continue to guard and grow the fund for their sake,’’ Nuyoma said.
The campaign will run on television, print media as well as on all the Fund’s social media platforms throughout the month of August 2019.
