New Delhi, November 7: In its latest tweet India's largest bank - State Bank of India (SBI) - has sought pension account holders to submit their life certificate or Jeevan Praman Patra at its bank branches or online by the end of this month.
"Complete your Life Certificate submission before 30th November, 2019 to ensure that your pension payments would continue. The certificate can also be submitted in person at SBI Branch or digitally at an Aadhaar outlet near you," SBI said in a tweet.
Those failing necessary submission within the deadline of November 30 before pension disbursal agencies may fail to receive pension. It is, however, resumed after the pension account holder submits the certificate.
There are at least four modes of submission:
1. Digital submission at SBI branch: Go to your nearest SBI branch and share your Aadhaar number, mobile number, pension payment order (PPO) number and account number. After you give your biometrics - fingerprint or iris - the bank official will do an Aadhaar-based biometric authentication to generate Jeevan Pramaan. You will get Pramaan ID as an acknowledgement.
2. You can then submit the life certificate digitally through the Jeevan Pramaan Portal. Jeevan Pramaan is a biometric enabled digital service for pensioners. Pensioners of central, state government or any other government organisation can avail the benefit of this facility.
3. If you want to save yourself from the hassles of visiting the SBI branch, you have the option to do it online through the UMANG app. Only thing that you are supposed to do is to download Umang App from Google Play or Appstore, search Jeevan Pramaan and click on generate life certificate.
4. Another way to generate life certificate is by visiting Citizen Service Centres (CSC) or Aadhaar Seva Kendra spread in different parts of the country. The process here involves going through Aadhaar-based biometric authentication.
