Safaricom says the M-Pesa Super App now boasts of over 5 million downloads since launch, with over 4.8 million users. This comes as the company announced a partnership with the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) to enable customers access NSSF services on the app.
As with other Mini Apps on the M-Pesa Super App, you will be able to find the NSSF feature under the discover section. Safaricom says as part of the launch, the first 1,000 NSSF members to make contributions through the NSSF M-PESA Mini App will get an extra 10% free topped up to their account.
What customers can do with NSSF Mini App on M-Pesa Super App:
- Register for membership
- Track contributions
- Top up and manage their NSSF account
- Make Tenant Purchase Scheme (TPS) payments
“The demand for NSSF services and the need to save for pension has gone beyond formally employed people to entrepreneurs, especially those running medium and small businesses. It has therefore become necessary to partner with organisations such as Safaricom to extend the reach of our services, including through smartphones on the NSSF M-PESA Mini App,” said Dr. Anthony Omerikwa, Managing Trustee – NSSF.
“We continue to explore different ways to provide our customers with even more convenience and access to useful services by establishing key partnerships with organisations such as NSSF. The NSSF Mini App will go a long way in providing customers with an exceptional user experience while providing them with the freedom to access services on their smartphones at any time through the M-PESA Super App,” said Peter Ndegwa, CEO – Safaricom.
The NSSF M-PESA Mini App comes on the back of the November 2019 launch of Haba Haba, a savings plan for business people in the jua kali sector.
Haba Haba gives members a chance to save a minimum of Ksh. 25 a day, with the option of withdrawing 50% of their contribution after consistently contributing for a minimum of 5 years.
