As an update to our initial announcement in early February regarding sanctions imposed on Mali by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the Fund has secured a new payment channel to remit monthly XOF (West African CFA franc) pension payments as domestic transfers through the UN Treasury. Payment Instructions have already been updated and payments will be credited to your account effective with your March 2022 benefit. All necessary actions have been implemented by the Fund; therefore, no action is needed on your part. In addition, returned February benefits will be reissued in 2-3 weeks.
