Long-Term benefits are payable by direct deposits into the pensioners’ bank accounts on a fortnightly or monthly basis. The Claimant should indicate on the Bank Payment Order whether he wishes the cheque to be deposited on a fortnightly or monthly basis.
- When submitting your claim please ensure that you state whether you were employed in any country with which Dominica has a Reciprocal Agreement on Social Security.
- Every pensioner is required to complete a Certificate of Life form every year as proof that he is alive, and in receipt of his pension.
- A person in receipt of Long-term benefit is responsible for informing the DSS office of any change in circumstances affecting his continued rights to such benefit. (For example, a widow or widower in receipt of Survivors benefit is responsible for informing the DSS if she or he remarries or cohabitates).
