TSC Directs All Teachers To Update TPAY System Details Before Deadline
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has directed teachers across the country under its payroll to update TPAY details in the system before deadline.
Among the details that will be required are the TSC emails that teachers were to create via a Microsoft account some months ago.
The directive was issued via a circular dated the 8th of June 2022.
Teachers are required to validate their data on the Payslips portal, Tpay, by their employer in a bid of enhancing the security of teachers’ information, in line with the Data Protection Act 2019.
In this regard, TSC boss Nancy Macharia has urged all heads of institutions to verify and approve the profile of teachers under their supervision; with immediate action.
“TPAY validation exercise takes effect from June 9 and will close on July 15,” Macharia says in a circular dated June 8.
She said that heads of institutions who will not have validated details of teachers under their supervision within the stipulated time will not be able to access their TPAY accounts.
Profiles for primary school heads are to be verified and approved by the Sub County Directors while County Directors will approve for post-primary institutions heads.
To validate the data, teachers are expected to access the payslip page through the TSC website and log into TPAY.
Teachers are required to upload a passport photo showing their face, without spectacles or head cover after which they enter and verify their phone numbers.
