If you have not received your statement, please don’t hesitate to call the GEPF Toll free number at 0800 117 669. Members can also visit GEPF offices nationwide to request the statement. The Estimation of Benefits statement reflects the summary of estimated pension benefit earned at a certain date during employment.

The GEPF now has a self-service portal and a member only needs their ID number and a password to access their latest benefit statement.

  • improve and sustain communication between the Fund and the members; • empower members with quality information;
  • enhance education about GEPF benefits to members; and
  • encourage members to approach their Human Resource department in the event that the information on their estimated benefit statement is incorrect.
