Association for Monitoring and Advocacy of Government Pensions

Introduction

The Board of Trustees’ performance in protecting the Government Employees’ Pension Fund (GEPF) members’ interests has left much to be desired.

Pensioners, employed members and beneficiaries were dissatisfied with their support when dealing with the GEPF.

Initially, The GEPF Monitor Group was founded by a number of voluntary pensioners.

As there was a requirement for an organisation to be a judicial person when dealing with these issues, the Association for Monitoring and Advocacy of Government Pensions (AMAGP) was established to address this need.

This document attempts to summarise the purpose and expectations of AMAGP.

AMAGP Core Values

AMAGP holds the following values for our conduct:

  • We play the ball and not the man. Our aim is the preservation of our pension fund, not winning arguments.
  • Factual. Our reputation depends on the trustworthiness of our statements.
  • Respect for institutions and individuals.

AMAGP holds the following values for our fund and members’ benefits:

  • All GEPF members receive their legitimate benefits.
  • The GEPF fund remains sustainable.
  • Vision

    Government pensioners derive the best possible benefits from their pension fund.

    Mission

    AMAGP ensures that the GEPF manages the pensioners’ assets/benefits diligently, effectively and efficiently in the best interests of the fund members while ensuring that the fund is sustainable.

    Objectives
    • The fund’s growth supports the improvement of rightful benefits while ensuring its long-term sustainability.
    • Annual pension increases significantly exceed inflation.
    Approach

    GEPF sustainability. AMAGP influences the pension fund’s sustainability as follows:

    • We hold the Board of Trustees (BoT) accountable to fulfil their fiduciary duties diligently.
    • Monitor the investments for performance and ethical conduct.
    • Utilise official government institutions with investigations to rectify wrongdoings.
    • Cooperate with parliamentary functionaries and processes to advance AMAGP objectives.
    • Use the media to sensitise the public and to expose alleged abuse and corrupt activities.
    • Mobilise civil society to support the rule of law in ensuring the sound management of the GEPF.
    AMAGP membership

    If you are a government official, pensioner or a beneficiary as a widow/widower, you will benefit by joining AMAGP to preserve our pension fund.
