The last date of submission for the life certificate, also known as Jeevan Pramaan Patra, is November 30. If the life certificate is not submitted, then the pension will not be credited to the pensioners’ account.
The State Bank of India (SBI) has today launched a video life certificate service for pensioners. This new facility, launched today, will allow pensioners to submit their life certificates via video from their homes. As per SBI, the process of video life certificate is paperless and free of cost. SBI announced this launch via a tweet from its official Twitter account.
As per the press release from the bank, this facility is available for pensioners (other than family pensioners). Thus, a spouse of the pensioner receiving a pension from the government will not be able to use this facility.
“Now submit your #LifeCertificate from the comfort of your home! Our #VideoLifeCertificate service launching on 1st Nov 2021 will allow pensioners to submit their life certificates through a simple video call” said the tweet.
