Military begins electronic verification exercise for veterans Monday

The Military Pension Board (MPB) announced that the electronic verification exercise for military veterans will start on July 1, 2024, and run until September 30, 2024.

MPB Chairman Air Vice Marshal Paul Irumheson explained that the shift from physical to electronic verification aims to mitigate security risks and reduce travel costs for elderly and overseas pensioners.
