The General Retirement and Social Insurance Authority (GRSIA) launched an SMS service that allows updating pensioners' data and information, and the establishment of an accurate database of pensioners classified by age and education categories.
This comes as part of GRSIA’s keenness to provide and update a database for the benefit of pensioners and other respective parties and to supplement other services, to further improve services to meet all requirements of contributors and in continuation of several projects and initiatives in this regard.
Mr. Khalifa Al Khuleifi, Pensions Department Director, said that GRSIA seeks to update pensioners' database by launching this service, which allows receipt of mobile phone messages and automatic replies containing required data and information.
By sending an SMS message to the number (92613), including the name, ID number and mobile number, the interactive messaging system will update data and mobile numbers of pensioners. Pensioners can also update their information online by visiting the Authority's website, or through communication with the Pensioners Service Center at GRSIA.
Communicating with Pensioners
Al Khuleifi added that obtaining and recording mobile numbers of pensioners in GRSIA’s database will facilitate communication with the pensioners, and provide them with the latest news and issues of interest to them.
Al Khuleifi called upon all Qatari pensioners and their representatives who have not updated their data to cooperate with the Authority in this regard, pointing out that special staff has been provided to help update information and complete all transactions smoothly and easily.
