The Social Security Commission (SSC) has dismissed as false a message being shared on social media, that informs Namibians that they qualify for funds of up to N$30 000 from the commission.
The message says that Namibians who worked between1990 and 2020 have the right to withdraw N$30 000 from the Social Security Commission.
The message that purportedly comes from the Ministry of Labour, encourages the public to check their names on a list to see whether they are entitled to withdraw the funds.
The Social Security Commission is creating relief packages aimed at mitigating the impact of COVID-19 on various sectors of the economy.
