Reacting to complains by some section of the general public, that SSNIT is shortchanging pensioners by giving them low pernsion payments, Dr John Ofori-Tenkorang said the benefits are based on the contributions and salaries of workers, meaning what people get from SSNIT depends on what they put in.
The benefits that are prescribed by law under the SSNIT pension schemes anchors the benefits that you pay on the salary on which you contributed.
So if you contribute on low salary or dodge your contribution, you should not expect to get more.
