‘NWP pension scheme benefits over 5,250 persons’

A pension scheme was launched in 2010 for the elderly in Kurunegala and Puttalam by the Co-Operative Development Department of the North Western Province and 3,816 elders initially joined it as members.

Now it has about 5,250 members, Co-Operative Development Asst. Commissioner Chandana Dissanayake said.

The Pension Trust Fund of the Department now has in its deposit Rs. 700 million. About 1,017 retired employees of the scheme now enjoy its benefits.

The NWP Co-Operative Development Department is the only provincial entity in Sri Lanka that pays pensions to its employees,” he said.
