DPI, Guyana, Wednesday, October 30, 2019

The Ministry of Social Protection has announced that that the 2020 Verification and Senior Citizen Pension (SCP) Book distribution will commence soon.

It was noted that the ministry has made every effort to place distribution centres closest to pensioners.  Seniors are asked to check the schedules listed below for location, dates and time.  They are reminded to walk with their 2019 Senior Citizen Pension Booklet and the corresponding national identification card.

The Ministry is also reminding pensioners that they cannot authorise anyone to uplift their Pension Booklets. Officers will deliver booklets to shut-ins.
