Dr. Maysa Rashed Ghadeer, Director of GPSSA’s Government Communications Office, explained that the GPSSA is organising a number of initiatives during 2023 that are consistent with the UAE government’s directives to elevate the quality of life for customers and to ensure their overall happiness and satisfaction.
GPSSA plans to deliver various workshops and external meetings for the exchange of information and viewpoints, while receiving feedback and ideas on how to better serve customers. Additionally, the GPSSA will increase its participation in community-related events that offer the opportunity to brainstorm, launch media awareness campaigns and invest in benchmarking best practices in communication, pension and social security.

"Our media awareness campaigns are organised to ensure Emiratis are aware of GPSSA’s scope of work and services, as well as the rights and obligations of insured individuals, pensioners and beneficiaries. Constant reminders to Emirati employees and their entities will continue to be sent the moment they join an entity, as well as the requirement to continue to contribute with the GPSSA in order to secure their social security and pension benefits,” affirmed Dr. Ghadeer.
In addition to campaigns, the Government Communications Office measures the level of public awareness by distributing comprehensive questionnaires to its stakeholders, with a total of six sent last year and one due to be sent this month to over 30,000 pensioners and beneficiaries. These surveys support the GPSSA in receiving valuable and productive feedback from customers about its services, thereby understanding whether these services meet the needs of different age groups and categories.
"The first questionnaire we plan to send this year measures the impact of GPSSA’s operations in serving pensioners and beneficiaries. Once we record the results, we plan to analyse the responses we receive and turn them into actionable plans. This correlates with our quest to meet the needs of our customers at all times, while continuing to find ways to improvise, create and service in the best of our capability,” said Dr. Ghadeer.
The payment will be made on the 27th of each month except for August when it will be given on the 26th, GPSSA said in a statement, adding, in February, March, and November, the pension will be paid on the 25th.
