Cash Transfer - What To Know About National Social Register Registration

Following the question that most of our blog readers have been asking on how to register to be captured on the National Social Register NSR to benefit from the conditional cash transfer CCT which was launched by President Tinubu yesterday the 17th of October 2023, we have decided to create this post to give you update on how beneficiaries were registered. So keep reading.

What Is National Social Register NSR? - The National Social Register is an aggregation of state registers built by each of the 36 states and FCT. States build the register using a Community-Based Targeting approach undertaken by targeting teams & enumerators engaged by states & overseen by their ministries of planning with technical facilitations from the National Social Safety-Nets Coordinating Office (NASSCO).

The National Social Safety-Nets Coordinating Office NASSCO is an office under the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation FMHAPA responsible for building the National Social Register of Poor & Vulnerable Households. Also coordinates Social Protection programmes in Nigeria.

According to NASSCO, there are over 60 million Nigerians on the National Social Register (NSR) and they are real people identified by community members in their communities & LGAs of domicile. The register is first, a state asset built by states through their ministries of planning.

The current National social register was built by the last Administration, a situation that led to the ongoing verification of the register by the new Administration to ensure that persons captured in the register are real people.
