CIVIL SERVICE ADMINISTRATION CHALLENGES
The administration of civil service and government pension plan covers a wide gamut of responsibilities from enrolling members, to tracking service and contributions/ withdrawals, to processing transactions such as terminations and retirements, to providing management reports and communicating with pension plan members – all while maintaining compliance with local pension legislation and streamlining actuarial data exchange.
In addition, many governmental organizations employ various types of pension plans including defined benefit, defined contribution, and special (Hybrid) savings plans, which multiplies the complexity of administration. The challenge is to do all of this accurately and efficiently, to increase throughput, shorten turnaround times, improve member and stakeholder communications, and reduce costly errors and the potential for fraud.
How can these challenges be met? With PENAD software and processes!
