The Antigua & Barbuda Social Security Board apologizes to the pensioners of the Bank of Nova Scotia and Royal Bank of Canada for the inordinate delay of pension payments for August 2019. The Organization continues to experience funding challenges due to the low returns of remittances. Every effort is being made to secure the necessary funds. Our aim is to release the pension funds for the Bank of Nova Scotia and Royal Bank of Canada on or before Wednesday 11 September 2019. Again, we apologize to our pensioners who have been affected by the current situation.
