Management of the National Service Scheme, NSS, says it has been informed of the misleading information circulating especially on social media about the payment of forty Ghana cedis by prospective national service personnel.

In a statement, management of the NSS explained that the payment for computerised registration and posting of personnel was introduced in 2005 and has been in existence since.

It is therefore not a new policy. Also the forty Ghana cedis which was paid by serving and previous national service personnel remains the same.

In a statement, the scheme said ten cedis is charged I.D. Cards, another ten cedis for National Service Personnel Association (NASPA) dues while the remaining twenty cedis is charged for computerized registration per person.

The statement further explained that personnel posted to private sector user agencies pay the entire Forty Ghana cedis upfront at the point of picking their appointment letters, while those posted to public institutions had theirs deducted from their allowances.
