The official written pension guideline by the federal military Government in 1979, TITLE (PENSION DECREE NO 102) is know today as the only authority that guides the payment of pension and gratuity. The difference between pension and gratuity is that pension is based monthly payment while gratuity is paid at once and in bulk.
Furthermore, pension can be seen as compensation (payment) to any retired officer or civil servant. Also it can be seen as regular payment made by the state to somebody old, to a disable or a widow.
With the pension decree “NO 102 of 1979” a lot of changes here occurred in most of the working sectors increasing the number of workers as well as productivity.
Not only that civil servant here had the privilege of retirement at any time at any age not exceeding 60 and not below 45 and yet is entitled for gratuity depend on the rank, years of service and level.
However, according to this decrease there are a lot of government establishment like hospital, institutions, industries, firms as well as forces that are involve in the pension exercise.
It is obvious that the pension decree “No 102 Part 1, No 1” it says “Subject to those decree any person or gratuity granted. Have under to any person on retirement form the public service of the federation shall be computed on the June pay or the pension entitled there to end in accordance with the provision of schedule I to this decree.” This is a clear description of the only and final authority over the payment of pension.
However, there is some pension enactment that has being in existence before thy were repaired and were replaced by this current decree. They are as follows: pension Act…………………… cap 147 pension (increase) Act ………….Cap 1478 pension (Returned and Transferred officers employed by statutory corporation)Act …………..cap 148 widows and orphans pension Act as ………………….cap 220 Amended by widow and orphan pension decree 1960 No 19,1973 No 20.

Pension and Gratuities (war service) Decree 1969…1969 No 49
Pension (increase) Decree 1972………………………..1972 No 41
Finally, although this project work is trying to concentrate on staff pension, yet there are a lot of areas that pension are attached.
1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
It was noted that there are problems, which the workers in the pension board do encounter in the processing of the staff pension.
According to the workers in the Nigeria pension Board NIGERIA, One of the major problems involve is the presentation of the incomplete being required, the processing could take place. But this problems is not what we are concerned with, since it is the past of an individual involved to submit all the necessary requirement. Other problems since there are a lot of document needed from an individual, then going through all the documents seem to be a very since there are a lot of document needed from an individual then going through all the documents seems to be a very tedious exercise to the worker, problems of manual calculation of the pension due. Another is inability to keep accurate record of an individual in this case, a lot of people normally falsely their age, inability to maintain first serve due to the large quantity of files.
1.3 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
How do we then know and expose the capability of computer in problem solving? Since computer is not a human being and operate on GIGO (Garage In, Garbage out) what is given is what should be get.
Therefore, it is the purpose of this study to conquer the above mentioned problems existing in the processing of the staff pension of NIGERIA Pension Board NIGERIA.
It is expected that alter this study, accurate record of any individual involved can always be maintained. Accurate pension due should always be given with the use for computer instead of manual. The problem of maintaining first come, first serve should be maneuver, and lastly age falsifying will become a past.
Finally, it is our goal to computerized the processing activities of NIGERIA PENSION BOARD, This will quicken the processing rate of pension system.
