The Fund is launching a new initiative aiming at providing regular virtual pension information sessions open to its global membership. The purpose is to ensure that UN participants, and all retirees and beneficiaries can learn about pension-related rights, processes and requirements, essential pension tools, and gain a better understanding of their Pension Fund and pension rights. Different sessions will target different topics and be relevant to different audiences.

You are strongly encouraged to prepare by accessing your UNJSPF Member Self-Service Account (MSS), where you can download your most recent Annual Pension Statement under the ‘Documents’ tab and run an estimate of future entitlements under the ‘Estimates’ tab. Having these documents (as well as your most recent salary slip) at hand during the session would make following the session that much more meaningful. Should you need help accessing your UNJSPF MSS, please contact the Fund via the email addresses provided on the MSS webpage (msssupport@unjspf.org or, requestUIDonly@unjspf.org to request your UID number). For any other pension-related query, contact us via the official UNJSPF contact channels provided on the Contact Us webpage: https://contact.unjspf.org/.
