Safaricom has partnered with NSSF to enable customers to conveniently access services through the NSSF Mini App on the M-PESA Super App.

Customers can now register for NSSF membership, keep track of their contributions, top*up and manage their NSSF account, and make Tenant Purchase Scheme (TPS) payments all within the M-PESA Super App.

“The demand for NSSF services and the need to save for pension has gone beyond formally employed people to entrepreneurs especially those running medium and small businesses,” said Dr. Anthony Omerikwa, Managing Trustee – NSSF.

“It has therefore become necessary to partner with organizations such as Safaricom to extend the reach of our services including through smartphones on the NSSF M-PESA Mini App.”

Customers can access the NSSF Mini-App through the “Discover” option on the M-PESA Super App.

As part of the launch, the first 1,000 NSSF members to make contributions through the NSSF M-PESA Mini App will get an extra 10% free topped up to their account.

“The NSSF Mini App will go a long way in providing customers with an exceptional user experience while providing them with the freedom to access services on their smartphones at any time through the M-PESA Super App,” said Peter Ndegwa, CEO – Safaricom.

The NSSF M-PESA Mini App comes on the back of the November 2019 launch of Haba Haba, a savings plan for business people in the jua kali sector.

Haba Haba gives members a chance to save a minimum of Ksh. 25 a day, with the option of withdrawing 50% of their contribution after consistently contributing for a minimum of 5 years.
