Lyna Mohamad

The dates for the release of this month’s service pension and derivative pension have been set for tomorrow and September 29, said the Ministry of Finance and Economy (MoFE) yesterday.

As in previous months, the Treasury Department will distribute the pension via a drive-through at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in the Brunei-Muara District on September 28-29. A drive-through will also be held at the Tutong Community Hall on September 28. For residents in Tutong and Belait districts, the funds will be presented over the counters at the respective Treasury Department offices beginning September 28.

Pension funds will be handed out from 7.30am to 3.30pm, and for 10 consecutive days, they will be available at the MoFE building in the Brunei-Muara District and the Treasury Department offices in Tutong, Belait and Temburong districts.

The MoFE advised recipients who have yet to register with the Treasury Department but have bank accounts to bring along copies of their bank cards to process pension payments for the following months.

They are also urged to abide by the instructions set for the drive-throughs and refrain from coming in groups, exiting their vehicles and assembling at the payment areas.
