The Ministry of Community Affairs is reminding recipients of ex gratia seamen and veterans benefits to complete their Seaman and Veterans Continuation Confirmation Certificates.
The certificates must be completed every two years.
The ministry advised that community development officers will attend locations throughout the various districts in coming weeks to help anyone who needs assistance in completing the certificates.
The certificates are used to keep the ministry’s records of those receiving the ex gratia payments up-to-date. Recipients are asked to bring a current photo ID with them.
