In the month of November, every pensioner must submit a life certificate, also known as 'Jeevan Pramaan, in order to continue his or her income. Between October 1 and November 30, those aged 80 and up can submit it. Pensioners can either submit it in person at a bank or have it delivered to their homes. The life certificate can be submitted online as well.

The following processes are available for submitting a life certificate by a retiree residing abroad, according to a circular issued by the Department of Pension and Pensioners' Welfare (DoPPW). Physical submission of the life certificate can be done if you are living in the country.
