New Delhi, Nov 23: The deadline to submit life certificate is just a seven days away, November 30, 2021, and if the document is not submitted by then, the Pension Disbursing Authorities (PDAs) like the banks, the post offices, and others may not disburse a pensioner’s due money.

Your pension may stop if you don't do this: Check eligibility, step-by-step guide to obtain life certificate

Every year between November 1 and November 30, government pensioners are required to submit their annual life certificates to continue receiving a pension. However, pensioners aged 80 years or above can submit the life certificate from October 1 onwards. Thus, these pensioners get two months to submit their annual life certificates. The last date of submitting the annual life certificate is November 30.

Jeevan Pramaan is a biometric-enabled Digital Life Certificate for pensioners where they can generate and share it with Pension Disbursing Agencies (PDAs). The facility is available for retired employees of Central Government, State Government and other government institutions.

It is very difficult for senior citizens and other retired employees to visit the bank every year and submit a life certificate in person. The Government of India has made provision for such pensioners to generate the digital life certificate using Aadhaar-based biometric authentication by visiting the Jeevan Pramaan portal or downloading the Jeevan Pramaan app on their smartphones.


  1. A person can avail the facilities of Jeevan Pramaan if he meets the following eligibility criteria:
  2. He/she should be a pensioner
  3. He/she should be a retired government employee (Central Government, State Government or other Government Institutions)
  4. He/she should have a valid Aadhaar number
  5. The Aadhaar number should be registered with the Pension Distributing Agency
