Safaricom has partnered with the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) to enable customers to conveniently access services through the NSSF Mini App on the M-Pesa Super App. Customers can register for NSSF membership, keep track of their contributions, top-up and manage their NSSF account, besides making tenant purchase scheme 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. It has therefore become necessary to partner with organisations such as Safaricom to extend the reach of our services, including through smartphones on the NSSF M-Pesa Mini App,” said Dr. Anthony Omerikwa, Managing Trustee, NSSF.
“We continue to explore different ways to provide our customers with even more convenience and access to useful services by establishing key partnerships with organisations such as NSSF. 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 HabaHaba, a savings plan for business people in the jua kali sector.HabaHaba gives members a chance to save a minimum of Kshs. 25 a day, with the option of withdrawing fifty per cent of their contribution after consistently contributing for a minimum of five years. The M-Pesa Super App provides customers with a range of Mini Apps that enables them to conveniently access a variety of products and services from a single app on their smartphones, including SGR booking, airline tickets, bus tickets, shopping gift vouchers, insurance gas delivery, and Pay TV services. More than five million customers have downloaded the Super App since its launch.
