Welcome to the National Service Scheme || Ghana : Announcements

Errors on e-zwich numbers

The Management of National Service Scheme wishes to inform all national service personnel, especially those who have not yet received their January and February, 2015 allowances, that the Ghana Interbank Payment and Settlement Systems (GHIPSS) has identified a number of errors in the e-Zwich numbers and names of national service personnel on its system.
Lists of all such errors have been forwarded to the Regional and District Secretariats of the Scheme for verification and necessary corrections.

All affected National Service Personnel are kindly advised to contact the various District Secretariats of the Scheme to ensure that accurate information concerning their e-Zwich numbers, names and places of posting are provided for immediate corrections.
Please note that those who fail to get their wrong information corrected would continue to have the computerized system reject their names and thus, they would not be paid allowances for as long their errors are not corrected.

The information below specifies the processes of verification, auditing, authentication, and validation undertaken in the context of the shift to paying National Service Personnel (NSP) allowances through the e-zwich platform, which began in January 2015.
