National Social Security Fund (NSSF) has put in place an online system to ensure registered members can check the status of their contributions from the comfort of their living room. This online system provides a registered member access to his/her NSSF statement online. To access your statement online, one must first register on the NSSF online portal.
Apart from physically visiting the NSSF offices to collect your statement, for efficiency and comfort you can access your statement online by use of these two simple methods.
To view your NSSF statement balance via SMS, follow these steps.
- Compose a new SMS and send the word “NSSF” to 6773. You will then be prompted to follow the instructions provided
- Type NSSF < leave space> NSSF No < leave space> Date of Birth < leave space> Full Names and send to 6773. This data will be used to view and ascertain that your details are correct
- Once your data is legit and you get validated, you will receive a PIN which you will use to access your NSSF account balance
- Type Bal, your new PIN and send to 6773
- When this process is completed, you will be able to view your NSSF statement balance
NOTE: It is important to note that this is a one-time request for a PIN, but you can thereafter change the PIN to your preferred private number.
