Civil servants unhappy with FIMA regulation

Civil servants in the Kavango East Region are unhappy with the proposed Financial Institutions and Markets Act (FIMA) regulation of 75% preservation from their pension fund.

The regulation only allows 25% access to the pension fund upon retirement.

Civil servants raised their concerns at a consultation meeting with the Ministry of Finance.

The government explained that the 75% preservation fund aims to protect people so they can still live a better life after retirement, as research indicates that many people suffer after retirement.
