NIS Pension Payments Late For August 14, 2020

The Ministry of Labour & Social Security is advising NIS pensioners that majority of the payments that were due on Friday, August 14, 2020 were not made because of technical difficulties being experienced by the National Commercial Bank in processing the payments.

We have been assured that the matter is getting priority attention by the bank’s technical team and is expected to be resolved soon.

The Ministry will advise pensioners as soon as this is completed.

We regret the inconveniences that this interruption has caused.

The bank has confirmed to the Ministry that the issue has now been resolved and the processing of payments started early on Saturday.

Pensioners are therefore being urged to check their accounts to verify that their payments are now being reflected.

The National Commercial Bank has indicated that NIS Pensioners who bank with other Financial Institutions will see payment start reflecting in their accounts on Monday, August 17, 2020.
