EDITOR—I applaud Mr. Senkuule Maseruka for his practical suggestions to help NSSF contributors derive benefits from their savings. True, our national life expectancy renders 55 years of age inappropriate for contributors to access their savings.

If the government insists on this, it will be counter-productive.
Secondly, many workers will long be dead and as usual those left behind will face procedural frustrations to access this money. It is logical therefore for contributors to access their savings when they are 40 years old.

Workers demand an institution lawfully accountable to receive workers’ suggestions and appropriately respond to them. A number of brilliant ideas to improve NSSF performance have been made. Most of these ideas are policy issues beyond NSSF management.

The idea of constituting NSSF board with workers’ representatives was proposed and appreciated but has not been implemented. This is essential because the workers would be in a better position to uphold their interests.

This must be done as soon as possible.
