The Government Institutions Pension Fund has introduced the Biometric Verification process where the annuitant uses their fingerprint to verify their identity to confirm proof of life. This process ensures that the monthly income is paid to the rightful annuitant. All annuitants must be registered and verified to ensure they receive their monthly benefits from GIPF. GIPF uses the biometrics identification system, which identifies a person by comparing fingerprints to the information stored in their database. GIPThe fund also registers all annuitants who receive a monthly income from the Fund to enable the Fund to identify their existence and ensure they receive benefit payments due to them.
