May Pension Payments

Due to an error, many of you received two direct deposit pension payments for May. The issue has been resolved, and the erroneous payment is scheduled to be withdrawn from your banking account by May 31.

Over the next few days, you will see 3 pension payment-related transactions in your account: 2 deposits and 1 withdrawal. Rest assured, the pension payment which remains in your account will be accurate.

We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience.
