CHECKING STATUS OF YOUR N.H.I.F CONTRIBUTION
Checking the status of your contribution to N.H.I.F is easier than when you add your family member or seek benefits from the cover. You need to follow the following steps using your handheld device such as a phone.
Finally ... you get a message:
"<21101>, Member No. xxxxxxxx: MORIENTES BABITO MTEJA, ID XXXXXXX, YOB 19XX , LAST CONTRIBUTION: 2018-03; PLEASE CONSULT YOUR EMPLOYER - ATIKA SCHOOL"
Payment of application process fee is done online using Mpesa with each K.C.S.E candidate paying Kenya Shillings Five Hundred (Ksh. 500) (unless we are notified that it has been changed).
What KUCCPS does not tell us is the Safaricom fee and other expenses involved like internet costs and expertize. Some schools will charge students from Ksh. 600/= to account for hidden costs but overcharging is pure extortion. However what KUCCPS requires from each candidate to process for placement is Ksh. 500/= (five hundred shillings only) regardless whether its a degree or diploma programme.

Welcome back, we will now embark on filling the kuccps excel application template/form. The 2017/2018 form is a bit different from 2016/2017, it seems some changes were done and more columns were added.
We will be tempted to follow some of the 2016/2017 rules of filling the form because new guidelines for 2017/2018 are yet to be published however once they are out in our custody we will revisit this page to make necessary changes as a way of resisting assumptions.
The edited parts of this excel format form has categories, we are going to work from one category to another.
1st category: Degree program applied for;
Note the following regulations: (2016/2017)
Suppose Tom of index 11212100001 wants to pursue mechanical engineering at Jomo Kenyatta university, but due to the demand of the the programmes at JKUAT, clusters points may shoot up, that means, if Tom's cluster subjects couldn't make anything above 42.6000, he may not get a vacancy in the university, this now calls for alternative universities.
If Tom's cluster subjects are for example 40.345, he may apply for the same programme at Machakos University (37.087) and Technical University of Mombasa (39.662) in this case, he may have a chance to get selected to pursue his dream career.
What then will his career guider fill in the 'degree programmes applied for' category?
Note the following:
What do you fill in the category 'degree programmes applied for' in column 2, 3 and 4?
If Tom's quest for Mechanical Engineering fails, he may opt to for plan B, C and D. This means, he is allowed to apply other courses of his choice from the same university or different universities. Let's have an assumption for Tom's plans
2ST CATEGORY: diploma PROGRAM APPLIED FOR;
This category is straightforward and clear. The procedure here includes:-
Points to note
The document attached above will guide you to identify postal codes, county and sub-county codes
e.g. 0798012089 (MS Excel will truncate the zero on the left, don't worry, its a usual procedure -798012089 )
e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org (the teacher can use a universal school email because students may change this later in their portals)
Its blocked, you can't change anything
