ARE YOU SUPER SENIOR CITIZEN? IF YES, U CAN SUBMIT LIFE CERTIFICATE NOW

Super senior pensioners will now get a 2-month window to submit life certificates for continuance of pension instead of the current one month span in November every year. The government has decided that these pensioners can submit the life certificate from October 1 every year, starting from this year, instead of November 1 previously.

The submission of this certificate is needed every year to ensure continuation of their pension. This gives them greater flexibility to submit the certificate comfortably.

The office memorandum issued by the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions dated 18.07.2019 said, "Senior Pensioners aged 80 years and above be allowed to give their life certificate w.e.f. 1 October every year instead of November which would be valid till 30 November of the Subsequent year."

Currently, the certificate can be submitted only between November 1 and November 30. This has been severely inconveniencing especially those pensioners who travelling or are unwell during this window to submit the certificate.

Government pensioners are required to submit a life certificate or Jeevan Praman every year in the month of November to the pension disbursal agency, usually bank, to ensure that they continue receiving pension.

If the certificate is not submitted by them during the month, i.e., by November 30, then their pension is stopped by the respective government department. Once the pension is stopped, getting it re-started is a tedious task.

However, due to rush and other difficulties such as standing in queues for submitting life certificate, it becomes problematic for very old pensioners. To ease this problem, this decision has been taken by the government.

So, it comes as good news that senior pensioners aged 80 years and above will now have two months to submit their life certificates. The life certificate submitted by them in the month of October will be valid till next year November 30.

For other pensioners, i.e., those below the age of 80 years, the rules for submission of life certificate continue to remain the same. They will be required to submit the certificate in the month of November.

Apart from submitting life certificate in the pension receiving bank, one can also submit it digitally at https://jeevanpramaan.gov.in/.
