- Your question relates to occupational pension scheme. In most cases, this benefit is provided for in the employment contract.
- If you feel your omission from the list of beneficiaries is on the basis of discrimination, you may take up the issue with your employer.

Thank you for your legal advice. It is much appreciated.
I work for a company where some people are in a pension scheme while most of us are not in the pension scheme except NSSF.
Recently, I stumbled upon this statement on the Retirement Benefits Authority website:
“If you are eligible, you have a right to the membership of your employer's pension scheme.”
Does this apply for my case?
Secondly, as an employee on a permanent contract, do I have the right to sue for pension benefits when I leave the organisation?
I have been in the company for over five years now.
