We have received news via our international Federation FAFICS, that the management of the United Nations and the Pension Fund have set goals to eliminate the backlog in processing the pension requests for new retirees by the end of May 2016.  The plan includes an additional task force for processing the requests and an additional help desk for handling inquiries more rapidly.  The plan foresees that 35% of the backlog will be processed by the end of March, 70% by the end of April, and 100% by the end of May.

For the entire announcement, please see Pension Fund Plan.
