The Ghana Education Service has Issued a note to public Sector teachers to Validate their image on their electronic payslip page or lose their salaries beginning August 2020.
This was after the Auditor General went on a payroll Audit in 2018 to get rid of Ghost names occupying the payroll and taking unearned salaries.
Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo went on a nationwide payroll audit removing several names from the Government of Ghana’s payroll and declaring some salaries as unearned compelling the individuals involved to refund such monies.
The steps for Validating your image has been reviewed as it was left for the staff to upload it by themselves, this method has been changed as the staff involved has to contact their validator to be able to assist in the validation process.
What one needs is a white background passport image, this image should be sent to your validator via email or WhatsApp electronically. The Validator will then upload the image to the portal of the staff involved for it to be verified and accepted by the Controller and Accountant General Department (CAGD).
After the Image has been sent, cross check in your portal by login in to check at the center top of the portal to be sure the image has been validated.
This should be done before the end of August to avoid challenges.
Note that without this you won’t be able to access loans as well.
