“An example of an innovative identity verification solution we provide to state governments, which has made a major difference in improving the lives of state pensioners, is our pensioner verification app. Pensioners can verify themselves through taking a selfie, which we match against other facial records of the pensioner, including the State pension’s database. Once verified, the pensioner is good to receive pension payments for another defined period.”
Before the app was being introduced, people(pensioners) had to travel from their local locations to a bank branch in order to validate themselves through fingerprints bio metrics which was a long, expensive and ultimately a rigorous exercise for the pensioner.
With these products, verification exercise can now be done through either using their own phone or another smartphone from any location. He also noted that the pensioner app is one of the many ways Chams is using simple identity technology to certain customer needs and improving lives.
