The National Identification Card will from today become the unique Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) number.
This follows the decision by the State Pension Trust to begin the process of merging the two numbers as required by law.
SSNIT contributors who have not registered yet to merge their numbers, will have from now till December 2021 to do so.
However, for new users, SSNIT will only accept the Ghana Card as the unique identification for processing benefits and contributions.
The move by SSNIT means that from January 1st, 2022, SSNIT contributors will no longer use their scheme numbers but will transact all businesses with the Ghana Card.
Two platforms have been deployed for the merger of the two cards, and she urged members to use a shortcode and the SSNIT website.
