Salaries of all public sector workers without social security numbers have been suspended from the June, 2015 payroll.

A statement from the Ministry of Finance ordered the Controller and Accountant-General’s Department (CAGD) to implement the directive.


Below is the rest of the statement from the Finance Ministry and signed by chief director MAJ. (RTD.) M. S. TARA

2. It would be recalled that the CAGD issued press statements on 6th January, 2015 and a reminder on 19th February, 2015, requesting employees to provide their social security information for their records to be updated on the mechanized payroll system. The release further indicated that the salaries of employees who do not provide their social security numbers by the end of March, 2015 would be suspended permanently. However, the deadline for the submission of the information has been extended several times.

Heads of MDAs/MMDAs have also been informed about this decision. 
3. Reports from the CAGD indicate that some employees have submitted their social security information and their records were updated on the mechanized payroll. However, some employees have still not submitted the social security details for their records to be updated.

4. In line with this decision, the Ministry of Finance has authorized the CAGD to suspend the salaries of all employees who have still not provided their social security numbers as by 12th June, 2015. The salaries of the affected employees can only be restored after thorough investigations are conducted.

5. Employees are advised to submit the social security information to their respective Personnel Processing Sections (PPSs) before the deadline of 12th June, 2015 to avoid the deletion of their names from the payroll.

6. For more information on the total number of employees without the social security numbers, heads of MDAs/MMDAs and employees may call on telephone number 0302-678801 or visit the CAGD website on www.cagd.gov.gh.
