RSA is a pension account maintained with a Pension Fund Administrator (PFA) followed by the issuance of a unique Personal Identification Number (PIN) by the National Pension Commission (PenCom) and monthly contributions of employer and employee are paid in the ratio 10:8% respectively. 10 % Employer contribution and 8% Employee contribution.
You are eligible to enroll under the Contributory Pension Scheme if you work for the Federal Government, Federal Capital Territory and Private organization employing at least three people and State that has joined the Scheme. The law expects every employee to open and maintain a Retirement Savings Account (RSA) with a Pension Fund Administrator (PFA) of his or her choice.
An employee can move from one employer to another and from one PFA to another (when the transfer window opens) with the same PIN.
