The enpf.kz website contains a report on the management of pension assets of the NBRK and the IPM as of January 1, 2023.

UAPF services are available in all corners of the republic: both in large cities and in small towns. As of January 1, 2023, the regional structure of the Fund includes 18 branches: in cities of republican significance (Astana, Almaty, Shymkent) and in 15 regional centers.
