FG To Suspend Salaries Of Federal Workers Who Are Not On IPPIS
The Federal Government of Nigeria is reportedly planning to suspend the salaries of federal civil servants whose details are not enlisted on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS). Starting from November 2023, federal civil servants who haven’t uploaded their details to the IPPIS server will not receive their salaries.
The move comes after a one-month grace notice issued by the office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, which allowed employees to upload their details to the IPPIS portal. This grace period is set to expire by October 27, 2023.
It has been reported that the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation temporarily suspended the salaries of civil servants who failed to comply with this requirement for the month of August 2023.
The decision to suspend salaries of non-compliant civil servants is aimed at enforcing the proper use of the IPPIS system for salary payments. The Head of Service of the Federation has issued a letter to Permanent Secretaries, urging civil servants to update their records on the IPPIS portal. Those who have failed to do so are given a last opportunity to complete this process.
This development emphasizes the government’s commitment to streamline the payment system and maintain accurate records of civil servants’ information. The provided URL is for civil servants to access the IPPIS verification portal, and a physical verification process has been outlined for those who need to complete the registration.
Civil servants are encouraged to adhere to this last chance to ensure they remain on the payroll and receive their salaries.
