Life Certificate For Pensioners: Step-By-Step Guide To Generate Jeevan Pramaan Online


Life certificate acts as an essential document for pensioners across the country to keep receiving their monthly allowance without any hassle or breaks. The pensioners get their due money from Pension Disbursing Authorities (PDAs) like the banks, the post offices, and others. For this to continue, they must submit the life certificate or Jeevan Pramaan Patra to these agencies by November every year as a proof that they are still alive. This year too, pensioners must submit their Jeevan Pramaan to the PDAs by November 30 for the same purpose. They can also deliver the document suing the formats prescribed by the central government.

To facilitate the submission process of pensioners’ Jeevan Pramaan Patra, the Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare has come up with an official memorandum dated September 20, 2021, following which one can know about the various ways to submit this essential document.

Pensioners, however, do not have to be essentially present to generate their life certificates from the pension disbursal authorities. Jeevan Pramaan Patra can also be generated online, as per government rules. Senior citizens can generate their digital life certificates using a software application. For this, a secure Aadhaar based Biometric Authentication System is also required. Pensioners, as well as pension disbursing authorities, can access the digital life certificates any time as and when required by them. The digital life certificate is stored online.

This system is particularly helpful in the Covid-19 pandemic situation since older people are more prone to the disease. It is also helpful for all those senior citizens who are unable to go out a lot and want to have their work done at the comfort of their own homes. Read on to find out a step by step guide to generate and access an online Jeevan Pramaan Patra or a digital life certificate.
