Nigeria’s pension legal framework has undergone multiple changes since the first legislative act on pension in 1951 called the Pension Ordinance, which had retroactive effect from 01 January 1946. The last major change was in 2004 with the enactment of the Pensions Reform Act (PRA 2004),
which introduced the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) and made it mandatory for employers and employees in both the public and private sectors to contribute towards the retirement benefits of employees.
The conference will provide a platform for participants to share their experiences and learn from the best practices in pension systems in the country, and explore innovative approaches to pension design and regulation that leverage technology, behavioural economics, and other emerging trends.
Overall, the conference will contribute to the development of a more sustainable and secure pension system in Nigeria that ensures dignity and financial security in retirement for all citizens.
