|

In a recent tweet, the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) said that pensioners can submit their life certificates online throughout the year.

Pensioners Can Submit Life Certificate At Any Time During The Year Online
 

Earlier, the process of generation of life certificates and its submission would take place from 1 October to 30 November of every year. It was mandatory for government pensioners to submit life certificates by 30 November to avoid discontinuation of pension.

"Pensioners will now be able to submit online Life Certificate at their convenience during any time of the year," EPFO's tweet said.

"The Life Certificate will remain valid for 1 year from the date of its submission," it added.

Digital life certificates allow pensioners to generate the certificate instantly using their Aadhaar number. The facility was introduced in 2015.

The dedicated government website- https://jeevanpramaan.gov.in/ -enables the generation of digital life certificates. There is no need to follow up with the pension disbursing bank as a submission on the Jeevan Pramaan website suffices. Your bank will receive the certificate digitally.

Details of the pensioner's aadhaar, bank account details and mobile number are required to perform the biometric verification to generate the certificate.

Alternatively, these can be digitally submitted at any EPFO office, pension disbursing bank, UMANG app or common service centre.

In January, the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions had instructed pension disbursing banks to provide doorstep submission facility to pensioners who fail to submit it by 30 November, for a charge not exceeding Rs 60.

Banks were also asked to send additional reminders via SMS/Email to pensioners who had not submitted their life certificates by the deadline.
