NSS Clarifies GH¢40 Fee for Online Enrolment Activation


The National Service Scheme (NSS) has issued a clarification regarding the GH¢40 fee required from prospective national service personnel to activate their PIN codes for the 2024/2025 service year.



This comes after public concern and media reports suggesting the fee was an unwarranted new charge. In a statement released on Friday, June 21, the NSS refuted claims that the GH¢40 fee was a recent imposition, labeling such reports as “twisted and skewed.”

The Scheme clarified that this fee has been a longstanding practice, initially deducted from the first month’s allowance of service personnel but changed in 2015 to be paid upfront before enrolment.

“The authors of these reports did not fully investigate the issue and instead portrayed the fee as an extortion attempt,” the NSS stated. They emphasized that the fee, which covers essential ICT services, is crucial for the efficient operation of the Scheme.

The NSS detailed the breakdown of the GH¢40 charge: GH¢10 is allocated for electronic ID cards, GH¢10 for National Service Personnel Association (NASPA) dues, and GH¢20 for online services and certificates.

“We reiterate that the GH¢40 charge is a well-established practice that supports the essential ICT infrastructure necessary for the efficient operation of NSS,” the statement concluded.

This clarification aims to address public concerns and ensure a clear understanding of the fee’s purpose and its long-standing role in facilitating the enrolment process.
