Jamaica's Accountant General's Department plans to use biometrics to identify pensioners.Accountant General, Carlene Murdock, said this week that the Department is actively working towards implementing this feature.”What this will mean ߪ is that the old order of the life certificates as we know it will change. No longer will a certificate be mailed to a pensioner; no longer will the pensioner have to take it to the Justice of the Peace (JP), or another certifier; no longer will the pensioner have to mail it to us,” she told JIS News.Murdock noted that arrangements will be made for persons who suffer from physical disabilities and cannot be identified by biometrics.The Accountant General said the use of biometric authentication will significantly lessen processing time, as the “pensioners' information will be recorded in a quicker fashion”.
