Enewa, a reporter from voiceofnigeria.org.ng, reported that NASIMS Starts Large Payment of Batch C2 Outstanding Money: Important Information for Npower Beneficiaries
NASIMS, a part of the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, is the body responsible for managing the Federal Government Npower Programme.
Recently, they have made great strides in paying the long-awaited money (Stipends) to Batch C Stream 2 Npower beneficiaries.
Here’s what you need to know:
New Self-Service Portal (SSP) for Easier Payments
The process of paying these Stipends began on Tuesday, a first-ever occurrence since NASIMS changed to its new Self-Service Portal (SSP) ssp.nasims.gov.ng.
The reason for using this new SSP Portal is to improve the control of the National Social Investment Programme (NSIP). This portal provides beneficiaries with easier access to services, including smooth Stipend payments, due to its advanced features.
What Can You Do with the SSP Portal?
With the SSP Portal, Npower beneficiaries can now get their Stipends at the same time. They also have instant access to their payment records and statuses like “processing,” “completed,” or “failed payments,” all within their NASIMS SSP Profile. Some features include:
- Receive Stipends Simultaneously: All beneficiaries can receive their money at the same time.
- Real-Time Access to Payment Records: Beneficiaries can quickly check the status of their payments.
- Easy Management of Personal Information: Changes and updates can be made through the portal.
Addressing Outstanding Payments: What’s Being Paid?
NASIMS is actively working on the backlog of Outstanding Stipend Payments for October, November, and December 2022. This payment also goes to the recently selected Batch C Stream 2 Npower beneficiaries, especially those who successfully finished the validation process in June and early July 2023.
How and When Will You Get Paid?
Though beneficiaries can look forward to the payment being sent to their bank accounts, the timing might differ, as different bank accounts are used by individual beneficiaries. Although the payment starts at the same time, the length of time may vary from one bank to another. The expected processing time should not be more than 48 hours.
This means patience is needed among beneficiaries to avoid any stress during the payment process.
Staying Informed: How to Monitor Your Payment
To keep track of their Stipend Payment, beneficiaries should regularly check the new Self Service Portal. Here’s what you can do:
- Check Paid Months: You can see which months have been completely paid.
- Monitor Processing Payments: Find out which payments are still in the processing stage.
- Identify Payment Problems: If there are any issues with payments, you can find out through the portal.
If there are any problems or complaints, these can be submitted through the NASIMS SSP Portal or verified Npower Social Media Handles.
In Conclusion: A Step Forward for Beneficiaries
This move by NASIMS to start the massive payment of Batch C2 Outstanding Stipends is a significant step forward for all beneficiaries. The introduction of the new Self-Service Portal simplifies the payment process, giving beneficiaries more control and insight into their Stipends. While patience is encouraged during the payment process, the new system provides a more transparent and efficient way to manage and receive payments.
The focus now is on monitoring the portal and waiting for the stipends to be credited to individual accounts, as NASIMS continues to improve the lives of Npower beneficiaries
