Lagos - Employers and companies that fail to remit employees pension contributions to the Pension Fund Administrator (PFA) would henceforth be charged a monthly penalty of three percent as punishment for committing such offence.
Such erring companies would pay two percent charge to the Retirement Savings Account (RSA) holders and one percent to the National Pension Commission (PenCom), reports New Telegraph.
