Easy Steps to Merge SSNIT And National Identification Authority Numbers


The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) has effective Monday, 28th June 2021, deployed systems that allow Members of the Scheme to merge their SSNIT and NIA numbers (Personal ID numbers on their Ghana Cards).

The merger will provide convenience and comfort for Members as they will only use one card, the Ghana Card, for all transactions with the Trust.

The merger is also in compliance with directives from the National Pensions Regulatory Authority

(NPRA) and Regulation 7 (1) of the National Identity Register Regulations, 20’12, L.I. 21’11 which requires the use of the Ghana Card as identification for “transactions pertaining to individuals in respect of pensions”.

All employers will be required to use only the NIA numbers of their workers to process Contribution Reports and make payments. Voluntary contributors will also have to pay their contributions using their NIA numbers.

Below, share steps on how you can easily merge your SSNIT and NIA Numbers.

The Merger Process: Using the Short Code

Members of the Scheme who provided their SSNIT numbers during the NIA registration should note that their numbers have been merged already. Such individuals may dial the short code *711*9# and select option 2 to check the status of the merger.
