Effortless Ways to Submit Your Life Certificate - Jeevan Pramaan Patra

Effortless Ways to Submit Your Life Certificate - Jeevan Pramaan Patra

In India, there are approximately 70 lakh pensioners, including those from the Central Government and Defense personnel. These pensioners receive their pensions through Pension Disbursing Authorities (PDAs), such as banks and post offices. Annually in November, pensioners are required to provide a life certificate, known as Jeevan Pramaan Patra, to these PDAs. This certificate is necessary to confirm their continued existence and eligibility for pension payments.

1: Digital Life Certificates (DLC)

Digital Life Certificates (DLC) offer pensioners a convenient method to authenticate their existence without physically visiting the offices of the disbursing agency. This service was introduced by the government in November 2014 and relies on Aadhaar-enabled biometric authentication, enabling pensioners to generate their life certificates digitally.

1.1: Submitting a Digital Life Certificate from Home

Here are a few simple ways for pensioners to submit a digital life certificate from the comfort of their homes:

1.1.1: Aadhaar-based online Digital Life Certification (DLC) - Jeevan Pramaan

To use this online facility for issuing a digital life certificate, pensioners and family pensioners must possess an Aadhaar Number. This Aadhaar Number should also be linked to the Pension Payment Order and their bank account by the Pension Disbursing Authority, which is typically their bank or post office.

1.2: The Process for Issuing Digital Life Certificates

The process for pensioners to issue digital life certificates is as follows:

  • Step 1: The pensioner must enroll and biometrically authenticate themselves using one of the following methods:

    • (a) Download an application for generating a digital life certificate from on any Android Tablet/Smartphone or Windows PC, obtain a low-cost fingerprint scanner/iris scanner, and provide their Aadhaar number and related pension bank account details.
    • (b) Visit a nearby Common Service Centre (CSC), Bank Branch, or Government office for biometric authentication.
    • (c) If already enrolled, only provide their Aadhaar Number for biometric authentication to update the date of their digital Life Certificate.
  • Step 2: After successfully submitting the digital life certificate, the pensioner will receive an SMS with a transaction ID. This transaction ID can be used to download computer-generated life certificates from the website for record-keeping.

2: Life Certificate through Face Authentication

The Department of Pension & Pensioners' Welfare, in collaboration with UIDAI and MeitY, has introduced Face Authentication technology for the submission of Digital Life Certificates of pensioners.

2.1: Steps for Face Authentication

Pensioners can submit their Life Certificates through Face Authentication as follows:

  1. Ensure you have the latest version of the 'Aadhaar Face RD (Early Access) Application,' available for download from the Google Play Store.
  2. Download the 'Jeevan Pramaan' app on your smartphone.
  3. Provide personal details, including Aadhaar (UID) number, mobile number, email ID, within the Jeevan Pramaan app.
  4. Receive a one-time password (OTP) on both mobile number and email ID.
  5. Submit the OTP to verify identity.
  6. Enter the name as it appears on the Aadhaar card and complete the face scan process to generate a Digital Life Certificate.

Section 3: Submission of Digital Life Certificate through India Post Payments Bank (IPPB)

The Department of Pension & Pensioners' Welfare, in collaboration with the India Post Payments Bank (IPPB) and MeitY, offers the "Doorstep Service for Submission of Digital Life Certificate by Postman."

Section 4: Submission of Life Certificate through Doorstep Banking

The Public Sector Banks (PSB) Alliance, comprising 12 public sector banks, extends "Doorstep Banking" services, including life certificate collection, to customers in 100 major cities across India.

Section 5: Submission of Life Certificate Signed by Designated Official

Pensioners can submit a life certificate that has been signed by a "designated official," eliminating the need for personal presence. This option is provided in accordance with paragraph 14.3 of the CPAO-issued Scheme Booklet.
