Clearly, a shilling today is better than a shilling tomorrow. You don’t need to be an economist to come to that conclusion. What if the zeros are chopped like they were in the late 1980s, what will happen with the savers’ money?

I prefer getting the money now and invest it. If you fail to invest, then that is your problem. I got my benefits two years ago and bought a piece of land.

Half of the piece of land I bought is now more expensive. The money should be paid today and in a lump-sum. Not as monthly payments.

Paul Kaddu, an editor

I want lump sum payment because I know there is a problem managing pension. Government workers are crying over their pension. I don’t want to join that group.

I want the lump sum so that I can plan for it. By the way, the monthly payment may even be sh15,000 and how will that benefit me? I need my money at once.

Patrick Ssemaganda,
a network auditor


Why don’t they give us our NSSF savings as loans instead of us going to commercial banks? I need to use that money for my future investments now. I cannot enjoy that money when I am 45 years.

I need to enjoy that money now when I am still young and strong rather than the money being used for building my grave.

Junior Kazoora,
a businessman


Why should they give me a monthly pension yet I have been paid monthly salaries all my life? Let them give me my money now and I invest it for my future destination. For those who cannot use their money can opt for monthly payments.

Andrew Kasozi,
an electrical engineer


I wish NSSF could pay me every five years so that I enjoy the fruits of my sweat. You don’t need to give me that money when I am 45 years.

If someone lost his/her job, why doesn’t he access the money to support his/her family? I thought that the savings were meant to help the saver.

Patrick Ssemwanga, self-employed

I prefer being given 33% of my savings and then given monthly payment. The monthly payments can help during a crisis such as paying school fees for my children.

Herbert Ddembe, a radio presenter

I want the money now. I need to use it as start-up capital to invest. I do not need someone to plan for my money. Just give it to me and I decide my destiny.
