EPFO pensioners freed from submitting life certificate annually
The Employee Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has informed all pensioners to get their Aadhar number linked to their pension accounts and register their life certificate.
They need to go to their nearest living proof centre to submit digital life proof and get it certified by giving their bio-metric scans.
With Aadhar number getting linked the pensioners would not have to give life certificate every year.
Generally, pensioners have to submit proof/certificate of life every year in the month of November. The said certificate comes to EPFO office through concerned bank branch. Pension is released after due processing and in case of any error, pension is stopped.
After Aadhar card based registration, the pensioner would be required to go to bank or EPFO office to give thumb impression on bio-metric machine, which would provide certificate of his life.
Digital life certificate could be given through mobile phone. If pensioner owns a bio-metric finger print device, they could submit digital life certificate sitting at their home. The process of submitting digital life certificate is online and transparent.Further information can be obtained by visiting website www.jeevanpramaan.gov.in
