A similar number belongs to the state, UT, and other government agencies. In order to receive the pension from pension disbursing agencies, it is a requisite for the pensioner to obtain a Jeevan Pramaan life certificate. In the absence of the Jeevan Pramaan certificate, they might not be eligible to receive the pension from the disbursing agencies. The disbursing agencies, which grant the pensions to credit the pension in the pensioner's account, are banks, post offices, etc.

Jeevan Pramaan Life Certificate for Pensioners

In order to claim pension post-retirement, the beneficiaries are required to furnish their life certificate before an authorized agency disburses the pension. Therefore, the pensioners were required to be physically present before the pension disbursing agency in order to get a life certificate issued by them. However, the requirement of being present physically was a significant hurdle for the beneficiaries. 

It was taken into account that being physically present before the agency might cause hardship and inconvenience to the aged people. An elderly adult cannot always be in a position to visit the offices or present before the appropriate authority in order to secure the certificate. 

Additionally, after retirement, various government employees changed their residences and moved to other places to live with their families. Hence, they may face logistic issues in order to access the pension. In addition, they might not present physically before the authorities. Therefore, this issue needs to be raised and addressed by the government.
