EOBI introduces new facility for pensioners
ISLAMABAD: Employees Old-Age Benefits Institution (EOBI) has made complete records of its pensioners online which would facilitate them to get access to complete information and funds, ARY News reported on Sunday.
After the completion of the digitisation of the records, all pensioners could get information regarding their pensions and other details after entering their EOBI registration or computerised national identity card (CNIC) number.
Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistan, Zulfiqar Bukhari, praised EOBI over facilitating the pensioners by introducing a new facility.
