Pension and Derivative Pension Payment will be made through Bank Account

Following the ongoing spread of COVID-19 in the country, His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di- Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam has consented for the Ministry of Finance and Economy through the Treasury Department to make pension payments to the retirees and derivative pensions for widows and dependents through their respective bank accounts from March 2020 onwards. The step is a precautionary measure by the ministry to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to the recipients.

In this regard, the Treasury Department wishes to inform the recipients to provide their personal information by completing the form through the Treasure Department's website at 'www.mofe.gov.bn' and to email the completed information to 'pencen@treasury.gov.bn' or via WhatsApp at 7373222.

For the recipients of pension and derivative pensions for widows and dependents who do not have any bank accounts, Treasury Department payment will be made by cash at the payment counters at the Ministry of Finance and Economy building within the first 10 working days.

The Ministry of Finance and Economy is seeking the public's cooperation not to come in groups, and leave the premises after collecting their respective pension payments. This is to reiterate all efforts to curb the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak.
