Pensioners got relief, EPFO ​​said – do not submit life certificate till November 30

EPFO: PF and pension fund body manager EPAO has exempted some pensioners from submitting life certificates till November 30. He can submit his life certificate anytime of the year and it will be valid for a whole year.

Pensioners will have to submit their life certificate before its validity expires. Under the Employees’ Pension Scheme (EPS ) 1995, pensioners taking pension from the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization ( EPFO ) do not have to submit life certificates till November 30 . For example, if pensioners have submitted life certificate on 1 December 2022, it will remain valid till 30 November 2023 next year.

EPFO gave information on official tweet

In the tweet made by EPFO, it is written that EPS-95 pensioners can now submit life certificate anytime. It will be valid for 1 year from the date of deposit. Life Certificate validates the proof of life of a retired employee. They are valid for 12 months from the date of submission.

This has to be updated from time to time to ensure that the pensioners continue to get their pension. EPC pensioners were earlier required to submit digital life certificate in November. Earlier, in the month of November, a huge crowd of pensioners used to collect certificates at the centres. Now EPS-95 pensioners have benefited a lot from this.
