Jamaica Pension Scheme

by Marie

Marie, this website is not in any way connected with the Jamaican Pension scheme. We can only direct you, or anyone else with questions on pensions in Jamaica, to the Ministry of Labour for any information regarding your pensions.

You have asked ... "My husband who is a Jamaican who received early retirement from his job as a fireman while he was living in Jamaica, but he is now living in England. Does he have to travel to Jamaica every year to sign his pension papers or is there any other way for the government to know that he is alive instead of travelling every year."

This question is answered on the Jamaican Ministry of Labour's website.

"If the pensioner goes abroad will he still receive his pension?"

"Yes, or the pensioner could name an agent (over 18 years of age) to collect the pension on his behalf while he is out of Jamaica.
Pensioners who reside abroad and who have not appointed a local agent to collect their pension are paid every six months by way of bank drafts in the currency of the country in which the pensioner resides. A life certificate accompanies each draft. It must be signed by the pensioner, notarized and returned."

Marie, I suggest that you contact the Ministry of Labour directly for any further help, since they are directly responsible for pensions.
