Police are better off under CAP 30 – Labour expert advises government

A labour expert, Seth Ablosoo wants government to retrace steps taken to move personnel of the Ghana Police Service from the CAP 30 to the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) pension sheme.

The CAP 30 which is a non-contributory is a form of pension scheme Ghana inherited from its colonial master, which was in Chapter 30 of the 1950 British Colonial Ordinances (Pension Ordinance No. 42).

Mr. Ablosoo told TV3 Midday Live Thursday that from experience, “not only security agencies, but all members of public service who are on CAP 30 are better of than on SSNIT”.

Though the scheme was supposed to have been phased out with the coming into effect of the National Pensions Act (766), passed in 2008, government has shied away from picking such move.
