The Government Institutions Pension Fund (GIPF) will once again take part at this year’s Ondangwa Trade and Industrial Exhibition (OTIE) as part of its stakeholder engagement outreach programme.

The programme is part of the institution’s campaign to reach out to members and inform the public of the fund’s activities and mandate.

“It is our duty to make sure that our members and the general public are informed and well educated about our roles and responsibilities as a Fund,” says GIPF marketing and stakeholder engagement manager Amos Kambonde.

“The Ondangwa Trade and Industrial Exhibition is just one of many trade shows across the country that GIPF participates in.

“It is with great pleasure that we invite all our members to make use of these member information sessions. We wish to emphasise that it is our members’ responsibility to make sure that they visit our stands at the upcoming events and find out about their membership status.

“GIPF has many other platforms of engagement and information sharing, such as targeted member education sessions at various member institutions.

“As a forward-thinking fund, we have also embraced the use of new technologies and urge members to use our Facebook, Instagram and website pages for interactive sessions and to gain further information about activities taking place in the Fund.

“We further wish to remind our members and beneficiaries that it is important to understand the rules of the fund and how they are applied.

“We therefore encourage all GIPF members to visit our offices countrywide and be briefed on their rights and responsibilities and to find out what benefits they are entitled to. Members seeking specific updates related to their benefits are encouraged to bring their identity documents as well as their latest payslips.”
