Major reasons for Non-Payment of NpowerNG Stipend

Most of these reasons bother around:

1) Unmatched BVN

Not matching BVN like I’ve earlier explained.

2) Unmatched Names

Where you have a matching BVN, but your names don’t match, at least two of your names provided on the portal must match with the BVN records provided for you to be paid.

3) Bank account not linked to BVN

Another issue perhaps your bank account that you gave us is not linked to the BVN I mean you didn’t link your BVN to the bank account.

4) Non-NUBAN Account Number

A lot of you your names match but you gave us a non-NUBAN account number; now what is an NUBAN account?

NUBAN is the National Uniform Banking Account Number which is a 10 digit account number, not the 14, 15, 16 we used to have before, so if you gave us a non NUBAN account number you also cannot be paid, and the last but not the least among the common errors, some of you are also using accounts that you set up maybe during your NYSC days that was profiled not to take more than 19,000 naira, so when we try to pay you 30000 naira, the banks return your money saying that the account cannot receive that amount of money.

So really those are the likelihoods, the possible scenarios why a lot of you have not been paid or had payment issues, but the good news is, month on month, we’ve had increasing numbers to the point that as at end of May when we were paying you your May stipend in June, we now have 163,500 of you now qualifiedSo it means that month on month we add on as many people that come to update their account, once you update your account and we pass it to NIBSS and you are validated you get paid for that month, then we take you on for the next month, so what you notice is that once you get your first payment, for example, if you got your first payment in the month of March you will continue to get April, May, June and we will then work to pay you your backlogs.
