Azlan Othman

The payment of service and derivative pensions (for widows and dependents) for this month will be made on May 28 and 30, according to the Ministry of Finance and Economy (MoFE).

The Treasury Department will hand out the pensions by a drive-through at the International Convention Centre in the Brunei-Muara District, the Kuala Belait Convention Hall in the Belait District, the Civic Centre Complex in the Tutong District, and the Temburong Treasury Department Office in the Temburong District.

Residents in Temburong can also opt to collect pensions at the Treasury Department Office between 7.30am and 3.30pm.

The MoFE also reminded recipients with a bank account but have yet to register with the Treasury Department to bring along a copy of the bank account card for the following month’s pension payment process.

The ministry also called for the cooperation of the recipients to comply with the directives by the Ministry of Health (MoH) such as not attending the drive-through in a group, not leaving the car and not crowding the payment counter.
