The Deputy Minister of SOEs, I Pahala Nugraha Mansury, said that the Ministry of SOEs is trying to normalize the management of the BUMN pension funds so that everything will go better.

He pointed out that each BUMN is allowed to have its own pension fund. In Erick’s initial data collection, 35% of pension funds are healthy, but 65% need attention.
“We are fixing it so that retired BUMN employees will become a problem in the future, don’t let the BUMN assets that were there disappear and are not maximized,” he explained.
Currently, each public company manages its own pension fund and is managed by retirees. He stressed that he wanted to have certainty about these retirees with professional management. This way, the Jiwasraya and Asabri cases related to misappropriation of investment assets will not happen again.
“We are consolidating all admins, if there are further findings we will take strong action like Jiwasraya and Asabri.
