Thousands of Pensioners Expected Pensioners Expected to Benefit from Collaboration between the NIBTT and the Ministry of Legal Affairs


The National Insurance Board of Trinidad and Tobago (NIBTT) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Ministry of Legal Affairs on Wednesday 26th February 2014.


Under the proposed MOU, the Register General’s Department will provide the NIBTT with regular access to information on Births and Deaths registered with the department. This will allow the NIBTT to issue automatic payments to beneficiaries of long-term NIS benefits
unless it receives notification of their death. Once implemented, tens of thousands of pensioners will benefit from a reduced Life Certificate process.


Signatories to the MOU are Ms Karen Bridgewater, Registrar General, on behalf of the Ministry of Legal Affairs and Ms Karen Gopaul, Executive Director (Ag.), National Insurance Board of Trinidad and Tobago.
