Senior pensioners will now receive a 2-month for submitting life certificates for the 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 the 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 2019, every year rather than November which would be valid till 30 November of the Subsequent year.”
