NUPW head wants under-40s pension plan


Share post:

Two insurance companies have been urged to develop a pension plan for people under 40 years old.

That encouragement came from president of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW), Kimberley Agard who said Government’s recent decision to change the full pension qualification for public sector workers from 33 years to 40 has left some workers uneasy.

“I know there is a great level of uncertainty now among the public service. I know that NUPW’s will be working feverishly to bring some level of satisfaction to the members in the public service but I want to take this opportunity to encourage NUPW Insurance Agent Inc. and Sagicor to seriously look at developing a pension plan for members under 40,” Agard said.

She made those comments recently during the NUPW Insurance Agent Inc. and Sagicor’s Health and Financial Fair and the launch of their new Homeowner’s Scheme at the NUPW’s headquarters in, Dalkeith. (TG)
