UAE Pensions Authority launches Improved Registration Process

Omar Abbas - | Mix

As part of its continuous efforts to improve its services, the General Authority for Pensions and Social Security has made major enhancements to the insured's registration service.

These modifications are a part of Services 2.0, the third cycle of the service development project. One of the most important changes is that instead of just rejecting applications and requesting a complete resubmission, employers can now ask applicants to return with the necessary documents attached if they were not included the first time.

Previously, if an application was submitted without the necessary documents, the system would reject it and remove it to maintain service efficiency. This meant employers had to start the process from scratch, which could be time-consuming and frustrating. The main goal of this rejection policy was to avoid negatively impacting service indicators, but it resulted in additional workload and delays for employers. The strict rejection policy often led to dissatisfaction among employers, as it meant more administrative work and delays in the registration process. Employers had to re-gather and re-submit all necessary documents, causing a bottleneck in their operations and contributing to increased frustration and inefficiency.

Statistics from the first quarter of 2024 revealed that 34.64% of transactions in the registration service were rejected due to incomplete data and missing attachments provided by employers. This high rejection rate highlighted the need for a more efficient and user-friendly process. The significant percentage of rejected transactions underscored the inefficiencies of the existing system and the urgent need for a solution that would streamline the registration process and improve the user experience.

The new transaction return feature addresses these issues by allowing employers to amend their applications based on the authority’s feedback. This change is expected to significantly reduce the number of rejected applications, enhancing the operational efficiency between the authority and employers. By streamlining the process, the authority aims to improve satisfaction among its strategic partners and employers.

With this new feature, employers will no longer face the frustration of having their applications completely rejected due to minor document omissions. Instead, they will receive feedback on the missing documents and have the opportunity to attach them, ensuring a smoother and more efficient registration process. This adjustment not only saves time but also reduces the administrative burden on both the employers and the authority.

Application Process for Registration Service

To apply for the registration service, employers need to complete several steps, including:

  • Filling out and attaching a service initiation form.

  • Providing a copy of the ID card.

  • Including a copy of the family book.

  • Submitting a pension receipt certificate if the insured is receiving a pension or employed by another entity.

These steps ensure that all necessary information is collected for a smooth registration process. By clearly outlining the required documents and steps, the authority aims to reduce errors and omissions, further decreasing the likelihood of application rejections.

Benefits of the Improved Process

The implementation of the transaction return feature is expected to bring numerous benefits. Firstly, it will lead to a reduction in the overall rejection rate of applications. Employers will find it easier to comply with requirements, knowing that they can rectify any mistakes without starting over. This change will also enhance the operational efficiency of the authority, as fewer applications will need to be processed multiple times. Additionally, the improved process fosters better relationships between the authority and employers. By demonstrating a willingness to accommodate and assist employers, the authority strengthens its role as a supportive and responsive entity. This approach not only improves customer satisfaction but also encourages compliance and cooperation from employers.

The enhancements introduced by the General Authority for Pensions and Social Security reflect a commitment to improving service delivery and operational efficiency. By allowing applications to be returned for document attachment rather than outright rejection, the authority not only reduces the burden on employers but also improves the overall satisfaction of its customers. This change, part of the broader Services 2.0 initiative, marks a significant step towards a more efficient and user-friendly registration process.

The initiative demonstrates the authority's dedication to continuous improvement and responsiveness to the needs of its users. Through these strategic changes, the General Authority for Pensions and Social Security aims to set a new standard in service excellence, ultimately benefiting all stakeholders involved.
