GES issues new directives on the retirement of teachers and staff
The Ghana Education Service has issued new directives on the retirement of teachers and other staff of the service.
In the new directives, the Service indicated that they will no longer use the date of birth of staff on the SSNIT records/cards.
According to the service, they will use the date of birth on the GES official records for the retirement of all teachers and other staff.
In a letter to all the regional directors of education, the management of the Ghana Education Service said;
“Management wishes to indicate that henceforth the following should be adopted in dealing with issues of conflicting dates of births between
GES and SSNIT records.
1. The date of birth on the GES official records and not that of SSNIT will be
used to retire staff of the Service.
2. The date of birth of staff on the SSNIT records/cards will not be used to
correct the date of birth of staff of the GES.”
The Ghana Education Service also issued a disclaimer that they will not be responsible for any issue arising out of this decision relating to dates of birth of staff with SSNIT.
The letter sighted by talkingdrum.com.gh also added that the decision of the service is “without prejudice to the procedure issued by the Public Services Commission in resolving issues of conflicting dates of births within the Public Service.”
