Breaking News: NPower Stipend Update – July 8th, 2023
Discover the latest update on NPower stipends for July 8th, 2023. NASIMS, the National Social Investment Management System, has shared crucial information regarding the completion of outstanding stipend payments for October, November, and December 2022.
Rest assured, the payment process is still underway, and NASIMS assures beneficiaries that they can expect to receive their stipends soon. It’s important to avoid spreading negative rumors that could create unnecessary tension.
The delay in stipend payment is a result of the verification process for genuine NPower applicants, which has added complexity to the NPower Validation process. Recently, over 200,000 new Batch C2 NPower beneficiaries were shortlisted and instructed to validate their information using the NPower Validation Form. However, there has been a revelation that some non-shortlisted “NPower Applicants” have also submitted the form, further complicating the payment process. NASIMS emphasizes that funds allocated for genuine beneficiaries cannot be used for individuals who have not participated in the program. However, rest assured that the payment will continue as efforts are made to address this issue.
NASIMS strongly advises NPower applicants who have not received text messages or emails for NPower information validation to refrain from filling out the NPower Validation Form. Filling out the form will only cause additional delays in receiving the stipend payment. It’s important to note that text messages and emails are being sent to ensure that only shortlisted applicants receive the necessary notifications.
If you’re a newly shortlisted Batch C2 beneficiary who hasn’t completed the Validation Form yet, it’s crucial to do so promptly, as the validation window will be closing soon.
Concerning the backlog of stipend payments for Batch C1, NASIMS assures that it will be addressed after completing the payment process for Batch C2. Although the Batch C1 NPower Program officially ended in August 2022, a benevolent package of three months’ stipends was approved for them in February 2023. However, the payment for the September to November stipends for Batch C1 has been temporarily suspended until the payment process for Batch C2 is concluded.
To summarize, the payment of outstanding stipends for October, November, and December 2022 for Batch C2 NPower beneficiaries is still ongoing. Any rumors suggesting otherwise should be disregarded. Non-selected NPower applicants should avoid filling out the NPower Validation Form. The validation process will close soon, so selected beneficiaries should complete it promptly. The payment of outstanding stipends for Batch C1 has been temporarily suspended but not terminated.
