How to request for SSNIT change of name

Kindly note that, as a policy SSNIT does not alter, change or add anything to what a member himself /herself voluntarily provided and certified during the first registration with SSNIT.

Change of name gives you a new identity and there are laws that govern the process. Hence, before SSNIT can accept a name other than what you registered with, you must provide evidence that you have indeed changed your name. A gazette is an official document which confirms that one has indeed changed the name. Without it, the name change cannot be admitted into the Trust’s records.

Kindly confirm if you have submitted the gazette to the branch to enable us follow up. Please include your full name and mobile number.
