The Antigua & Barbuda Social Security Board (ABSSB) wishes to advise all our overseas beneficiaries who receive their pension by bank draft that this process will be discontinued as of April 1, 2021. CIBC First Caribbean International Bank has advised that only Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) payments or wires will be available after this date.
Pension payments will be made either to a local bank or by wire. We therefore request that banking details to support payment be forwarded to the social security office no later than April 23, 2021 to ensure continued payment of your benefit.
We further wish to advise that wire processing will entail a local EC $30.00 dollars and a fee charged by the receiving bank. Both fees will be deducted from the pension amount.
Our payment option form is available on our web site: www.socialsecurity.gov.ag. Payment forms can also be emailed upon request through firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will continue to provide updates as our operating environment continues to evolve. We do apologize for any inconvenience caused. But they are due to circumstances beyond our control.
