SBI Jeevan Praman: What is it? How it helps pensioners?
The State Bank of India has asked its pension account holders to submit their Life Certificate by November 30 to continue getting their pension
The State Bank of India has asked its pension account holders to submit their Life Certificate by November 30 to continue getting their pension. The Life Certificate can be submitted online or an account holder can visit their bank branch to complete the process to continue receiving their monthly pension amount.
"The Jeevan Pramaan initiative makes life simpler for pensioners. In just a few clicks, you can submit your Aadhaar based Digital Life Certificate! Enjoy your retirement with Jeevan Pramaan! The Aadhaar based Digital Life Certificate gives pensioners the comfortable option of digital submission," SBI said in a series of tweets.
Jeevan Pramaan is an Aadhaar-based Digital Life Certificate for pensioners. The government of India had launched this on 10th November, 2014. The official SBI website says, "This initiative is in addition to the existing system of physical submission of Life Certificate by pensioners at the pension disbursing branches or any branch of the Bank at his convenience."
How to get Life Certificate
To get the Life Certificate, the pensioner can visit a nearby CSC center, bank branch or any government office whose details are provided under the “locate center” on jeevanpramaan.gov.in and bio-metrically authenticate his/her life certificate in real time by giving his/her Aadhaar number and other pension details related to their pension bank account," says bank.sbi
After successful submission of digital life certificate, the pensioner gets a sms on his/her mobile giving the transaction id. The Pensioner will be able to download computer generated life certificate from jeevanpramaan.gov.in using this transaction id for their records.
The bank says it will continue to accept physical Life Certificate from pensioners if preferred by him/her.
"Since the entire process is primarily Aadhaar based, digital life certificate submitted by the pensioner can be authenticated only when pensioners’ accounts are seeded with their Aadhaar Number," says the largest public lender.
