The Honourable Minister has accepted her appointment by the United Nations into the Investments Committee of the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund (UNJSPF).

The Under-Secretary-General of United Nations, Jan Beagle, on Sunday said Mrs. Adeosun would serve a one-year term of office effective from January 1, 2018.

It is not so sure if the jon entails Mrs. Adeosun to leave his appointment as the Finance minister under President Muhammadu Buhari.



The UNJSPF is a Fund that provides UN pension, death, disability and the other related benefits for staff of the United Nations and the other organisations admitted to membership in the Fund.

The UNJSPF is a multiple employer defined benefit plan and governed by the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Board (UNJSPB), the Staff Pension Committee for each member organisation, and a secretariat to the UNJSPB and to each such committee.

The Fund was established through UN General Assembly resolution 248 (III) (passed December 1948) which came into effect on the 23rd January, 1949 making it a permanent retirement scheme

It currently serves 23 member organisations, with 128,262 active participants and approximately 75,000 retirees in nearly 200 countries.
