NSS finally explains the activation fee charge for the online enrolment

The National Service Scheme (NSS) has taken notice of concerns raised by a section of the public regarding the GH¢40 fee required from prospective national service personnel to activate PIN codes for the 2024/2025 service year enrolment.

  1. It is clear that the authors of the storyline did not find out much about the issues and rather sought to twist and skew the story to portray the Scheme negatively to the public, as though this was an extortion, as they suggested in their writeup.

  1. Management wishes to clarify that the GH¢40 charge for PIN codes is not a recent development.

  2. In fact, as far back as 2006, when the Scheme’s online registration system was introduced, all prospective national service personnel have always paid this fee.

  3. The fee was initially paid through deductions at source from the first month allowances of the service personnel after they have been posted. However, the mode of payment was changed in 2015 to allow service personnel to pay before enrolment.

  4. Management further wishes to clarify, by way of breakdown of the GH¢40 fee as follows:

i. GHc10.00 for electronic NSS ID cards;

ii. Ghc10.00 for National Service Personnel Association (NASPA) dues

iii. GHc20.00 for online (Internet) services to the service providers. This covers the cost of NSS certificates awarded upon service completion; facilitates the monthly upload of assessment forms; and supports the ongoing maintenance and upgrades to the NSS online registration system.
