2024 Proposed dates for Validation, Salary Payment to Public sector workers

We want to bring to your attention a crucial update regarding public sector workers in Ghana. A letter published earlier by the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) states that starting February 2024, government employees on the central payroll without their National Identification Authority (NIA) Numbers linked to their names will face salary payment issues.

CAGD; No Salary for Public Sector Workers Without NIA numbers Effective February 2024 

The mandatory integration of the Ghana Card as a vital identification requirement began with the 2020 batch of civil and public service recruits.

CAGD made it compulsory for employees to register with their Ghana Card numbers as part of the employee registration process.

For subsequent recruitments, the NIA Number was automatically captured without the need for separate biometric data capture.

Before the 2020 batch, the CAGD organized compulsory NIA Number capture sessions for all workers, and special registrations were conducted for public sector workers without NIA Numbers. Employees were given multiple opportunities to complete the registration process if they couldn’t do so initially.

The various District / Regions also captured recent data which also included the NIA Numbers.

CAP 30 Pension Beneficiaries were required to undergo a verification and data capture process at specific locations,


1. The CAGD Head Office Annex, Room 103
2. CAGD Regional Offices
3. Various Pensions Associations Offices/Meeting points
4. Finance Offices of all Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies (MMDAs)

This verification exercise spans two (2) months, commencing on the 3rd of July and ending on the 31st of August 2023.

CAGD Release: CAP 30 Pensioners National Identification Card / Biometric Data Verification Exercise ;

A recent directive from the CAGD instructs all its workers and Government of Ghana (GOG) employees to register at any of the 292 NIA offices nationwide.

The Automatic synchronization of NIA and CAGD data aims to capture all registered individuals.

To ensure you are not affected, consider the following steps:

  1. If you were recruited after 2020 and your documents submitted to CAGD include Ghana Card details, you are likely safe.
  2. If you specifically visited the office for data capture, you are likely included.
  3. Visit the CAGD office to confirm your status.
  4. The surest way is to register for the Ghana Card if you haven’t done so already, there will be automatic Updates of systems. Check your Epayslip Portal to see the Ghana Card icon. GOGPAYSLIP E-Payslip Login Portal 2024
  5. Update your documents at the administrator’s or head office after acquiring the Ghana Card Number.
