Government Employees Without Ghana Card Will Not Receive Salaries Effective February 2024 – CAGD


The Controller & Accountant-General’s Department (CAGD) has stated that government employees in Ghana who do not possess Ghana Cards will no longer receive their salaries from February 2024 onwards.

This decision follows a meeting held at the CAGD Block D conference room on October 11, 2023, where timelines for a special registration exercise for government workers without National Identification Authority (NIA) numbers were discussed.

It was agreed that CAGD would communicate with NIA to propose timelines for the registration exercise and seek agreement from the institutions and unions involved.

Subsequently, the CAGD sent a letter to the NIA on October 11, 2023, requesting consent and agreement on the proposed timelines for the registration exercise.

However, the NIA responded by stating their inability to conduct the special registration exercise and instead urged government employees to take advantage of the ongoing general registration at all 292 NIA offices across the country.

As a result, the CAGD has advised government employees without NIA numbers to register for their Ghana Cards before February 2024.

They have emphasized that salaries will not be paid to employees on the centralized government payroll who do not possess NIA numbers after this date.

Employees who are yet to register are urged to take advantage of the December-January period to complete their registration process and obtain their NIA numbers in order to continue receiving their salaries.
