ISLAMABAD: The Employee Old Age Benefit Institution (EOBI) has made complete records of its online pensioners, which would facilitate access to information and full funds, ARY News reported Sunday.
After completing the digitization of the records, all pensioners could obtain information about their pensions and other details after entering their EOBI registration number or national computerized identity card (CNIC).
The special assistant to Pakistan’s prime minister abroad, Zulfiqar Bukhari, praised EOBI for facilitating pensioners by introducing a new facility. He said the previous government had destroyed national institutions through corruption, while the current government is empowering institutions, including EOBI.
