NSSF members can do the following with the Smart Card;

  • NSSF Account: Withdraw your NSSF savings upon qualification for any benefit, make contributions to the voluntary savings plan, use it for member identification at an NSSF and so much more.
  • Bank Account: Deposit money from other sources and withdraw money from your NSSF Smart Life bank account, pay bills, make transactions online, at a physical point of sale or withdraw at an ATM machine.
  • Loyalty Benefits: The NSSF Smart Card qualifies you for amazing discounts on selected services and products at partner merchant outlets. Our list of merchants is expanding to cover more products and services.

The Fund is transitioning from ordinary laminated cards to a functional Chip and PIN plastic card, that supports various transactions, gives members access to bespoke loyalty offers and supports faster payment of NSSF benefits to qualifying members. This card also bears the technology to enable future product innovations. The NSSF Smart Card is powered by Centenary Bank and VISA.
