If you are worried about losing your pension benefit due to non-submission of Digital Life Certificate or Jeevan Pramaan, then the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has good news for you.
The EPFO issued a circular on March 23, stating that pensioners who were unable to submit digital life certificate should not be deprived of pension they are entitled to receive. The EPFO has done this as it has been brought to their attention that pensioners have stopped receiving pension due to non-submission of Digital Life Certificate or Jeevan Pramaan. In the circular, the EPFO has asked officers to re-examine all rejected cases and in that genuine cases are accepted. This circular pointed out the alternative methods for digital life certificate detailed in its November 8 circular.
