All Pensioners MUST appear in person and come with their National Identity Card. This exercise is a requirement of the Ministry of Public service of Uganda and all Districts are required to undertake it.

The Verification Exercise will be able to:

1. Identify genuine Pensioners through conducting the Pensioners' Census and eliminate Ghost Pensioners currently on the Pay Roll

2. Verify whether the current beneficiaries are the rightful beneficiaries

3. Compare information on Pension Files and National Identity Cards to establish whether the two match. Any mismatched information will be harmonised
