For convenience of reference and analysis, this project has been separated into many stages, which are as follows:-

The introduction of pension and gratuity, the study’s background, which claims that the government of Enugu State provides pension and gratuity to retired civil officials through taxation. Premiums, on the other hand, must be set away in a separate fund known as funding for the purpose in the private sector.

The inability for retirees to lack training and understanding on the qualification and entitlement of pension and gratuity, highly poor of regardless of pension and gratuity to government, and inability to know the meaning and need of pension and gratuity are all examples of problems that arise when it comes to pension and gratuity.



The term pension refers to a lump sum of money paid by the government on a regular basis to people over a specific age, as well as widowed, (widow) or disabled people by former employers or financial organizations. It’s also a sum of money paid on a regular basis by the government or a company to someone who is deemed to be too old or infirm.

While the phrase “gratuity” refers to money paid to someone who has performed a service for you or money given to employers when they leave their jobs, it also refers to money given to employees when they leave their jobs.

As a reward for previous distinguished services, Pensions and gratuities are the first charge on any government’s consolidated fund. Pension and gratuity issues should be handled quickly so that any willful mismanagement becomes inhumane. Some persons who care about the issue would confess that in Enugu state, pension and gratuity are misunderstood. As a result, it is considered that little can be done to prevent employers and legislators from abusing the plan. And the government has agreed that pensions and gratuities should be regarded as statutory rights that should never be reduced or withheld unless for grave and well-defined reasons.

In Enugu, the provision of pension and gratuity for retired civil officials is closely associated with the government’s role as an employer of labor.

state. Pension, on the other hand, is still viewed as a questionable job in the private sector, much like it was in Enugu during the Middle Ages. The government funds pension and gratuity provisions for retired civil officials through taxes, but premiums in the private sector must be set aside in a separate pool known as financing for the purpose.

Employer contributions to this fund are normally made as a percentage of payroll. It is possible that the employee

These payments grew over time, together with interest and investment income, to provide retirement benefits. The provision of retirement benefits for private sector employees in Enugu state is optional, as there is no statutory duty on employees. Pension and gratuity are linked to earnings for the employers we set up schemes for, and the most appropriate form is one that takes into account both income and length of service. Final salary schemes are a sort of pension and gratuity arrangement that provides enough pension and gratuity while taking into account earnings at the time of retirement. As a result, there are numerous benefits to putting a lump sum at the retiree’s disposal, particularly if there are certain pressing needs.


The following are the procedures and methods of payment of pension and gratuity to retired civil officials in Enugu State, as identified in this project study.

1. The majority of retirees lack training and comprehension of their pension and gratuity qualifications and entitlements.

The purpose of this study is to examine the procedures and methods for paying pensions and gratuities to retired civil officials in Enugu State.

However, due to funding and time constraints, data for this study was only collected from Enugu state. As a result, the focus of this study is on Enugu State. In Enugu state, it was found that there were several pensioners.


It is estimated that more than half of Enugu state will sufficiently give information on the characteristics of the total population based on the parttern of development of pension and gratuity in Enugu state. It helps to produce faster results than using the entire population.


This research is constrained by time and financial constraints. These have also forced coverage limitations.

In addition, the researcher had difficulty getting the respondent to answer all of the questions.
