In today’s Latest Npower News, we address the concerns raised by Batch C1 and C2 Npower beneficiaries regarding outstanding stipend payments. We understand the importance of timely stipend payments for the beneficiaries and want to provide clarity on the matter. The National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS) is actively working to resolve these issues and ensure that all outstanding stipends are cleared.
1. Batch C1 December Stipends
No December Stipend for Batch C1 Npower Beneficiaries
To be clear, there will be no December stipend payment for Batch C1 Npower beneficiaries. The Batch C1 Npower Programme has concluded, and beneficiaries have been instructed to stop attending their places of primary assignment.
Currently, the outstanding stipends being paid to Batch C1 Npower beneficiaries are for September, October, and November 2022. It‘s important to note that this payment does not indicate an extension of the Batch C1 Programme. The Minister’s generosity is demonstrated by providing a three-month stipend payment as a goodwill gesture to the Batch C1 Npower beneficiaries.
If you have already received the September, October, and November stipends, please be aware that no further stipend payments will be made to Batch C1 Npower beneficiaries.
If you have not received the September, October, and November stipends but have filled the Npower Validation Form, please remain patient as you will receive your payment soon.
January to May Stipend Payments for Batch C2
Many Batch C Stream 2 beneficiaries are wondering if the payment of January, February, March, April, and May stipends has begun. The answer is no.
The payment of the January to May stipends will commence after the completion of the backlog payments for Batch C2 October, November, and December 2022. It is essential to clear the backlogs to ensure a uniform payment process for all Batch C Stream 2 beneficiaries.
Please note that any news claiming that the payment of the January to May stipends has started is false. The payment will be initiated in due course, once the backlog payments are completed.
3. Payment Status Display on NASIMS Profile
Change in Payment Status Display
Some beneficiaries have noticed that the payment status is no longer updated on their NASIMS profile. This change is because the Npower beneficiaries’ stipend payments have been shifted to a new payment platform.
To track your stipend payment, it is advised to regularly check your bank account balance. This will help you determine which backlog has been paid and which payments are still pending.
4. Outstanding Stipend Payments
Ongoing Outstanding Stipend Payments
The process of clearing outstanding stipend payments is currently ongoing. If you are expecting an outstanding stipend payment, we recommend checking your bank account balance regularly to stay updated on the payments.
The issues regarding outstanding stipend payments for Npower beneficiaries are being actively addressed by the National Social Investment Management System (NASIMS). While Batch C1 Npower beneficiaries will not receive a December stipend, they have been granted a three-month payment as a gesture of goodwill. Batch C2 beneficiaries can expect the payment of their January to May stipends after the completion of backlog payments. It is crucial to monitor bank account balances for payment updates, as the payment status display has been moved to a new platform.
