Pension details for teachers submitted to Treasury by TSC; How to check the status
Pension details for teachers submitted to Treasury by TSC; How to check the status. The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) asked its retirees to confirm their eligibility for the pension program on Friday, February 3.
The TSC informed retired teachers that the commission has processed and submitted pensions to the Ministry of Treasury and Planning for the purpose of payment in a correct way.
Additionally, they were instructed to access the TSC portal by going to www.tsc.go.ke to look up the status of their pension.
- “The Commission has filed claims for teachers’ pension benefits to the National Treasury,” the Teachers Service Commission declared.
The TSC website states that the amount of the pension for retired teachers was based on the length of time they had served the state in various capacities.
The income of a teacher was another factor taken into consideration while processing pensions for retired educators.
Teachers must retire at age 60 in accordance with Kenyan employment law, much as other public employees.
The Teachers Service Commission recommends that a teacher waits until they reach the mandatory retirement age of 60 before being eligible for pensions.
Additionally, teachers who are disabled may retire at age 65 in accordance with the law.
2009 saw the Public Service Commission increase the mandatory retirement age from 55 to 60.
Pensions for retired teachers, however, can occasionally be delayed significantly for a number of reasons, such as inadequate federal funds.
When they retire, Kenyan teachers are also eligible for additional benefits, as the government may occasionally decide.
