Frequently asked questions

MIPF is a self-administered Defined Contribution pension fund that was set up in 1952 to provide retirement income for employees in the mining industry upon attainment of prescribed retirement ages. The Fund was set up following a collective bargaining agreement between representatives of employers and those of employees in the mining industry.

MIPF is administered by a Board of Trustees appointed by the National Employment Council (NEC) for the mining industry. The Board of Trustees is made up of employee and employer representatives.

The purpose of the Fund is to provide retirement income to members when they retire. This is because, in retirement, a former employee will not be in a position to receive a regular income as before. It is therefore important that monies are set aside for the employee during his/her working days for his/her benefit upon retiring and hence MIPF serves this purpose.

It is a statutory requirement for every employer whose operations are classified as mining to join the Fund. It is therefore a condition of service for all employees of such an employer that are aged below the normal retirement age of sixty (60) years to subscribe to the Fund.

You are required to contribute a minimum of (7.5%) of your monthly basic salary. However, there is a provision for you to make Additional Voluntary Contributions (AVC). You are allowed an additional voluntary contribution of up to 7.5%, which means the total contributions made should not exceed (15%) of your basic salary.

Your employer’s obligation is to contribute a minimum of 7.5% of your monthly salary. Although there is also a provision for Additional Voluntary Contributions by your employer, the latter is not required to match the employee’s additional contributions.

It is in your best interest to take advantage of the Additional Voluntary Contributions in order to earn a better pension during retirement. Once you have decided to make Additional Voluntary Contributions, the rate of contribution can only be reduced at the beginning of January each year.
