ATTENTION EPS-1995 PENSIONERS No Pension without Digital Life Certificate

Dear EPS Pension Member no Pension will be credited without digital life certificate 

From 1st November 2016, EPFO has launched the facility of online submission of life certificate. It is mandatory to submit the digital Life Certificate through jeevan Pramaan System life certificate. 


The pensioners should carry the Aadhaar Card, Mobile phone, details of PPO and Bank account number for hassle free submission of Digital Life Certificate. 
The digital Life Certificate can be submitted at 

1.Bank branches from where pensioners are drawing their pensions

2.Common Service Centres(CSC) of IT department, the list of CSC are available at csc.gov.in 

3.Jeevan Pramaan Centre, the Jeevan Pramaan centre can be located at jeevanpramaan.gov.in



This process is Aadhaar based; therefore pensioners are advised to update their Aadhaar details to reflect the accurate Name, Father Name and Date of Birth. The instructions and FAQs regarding the updation of Aadhar data are available on the website www.uidai.gov.in

In case, the Aadhar details are accurate but they do not match with the details in EPFO database, the Pensioners should forward an application to R.O. Of EPF from where the pension is disburse   for change/modification of the concerned data along with the supporting documents like School Leaving Certificate, PAN card, Aadhar Card, Passport, Driving License, etc.  


Please note that the payment of the monthly pension will be stopped after 31.12.2016, of those pensioners whose digital life certificates are not received

Even idle EPF accounts will earn interest

Highlights


  •  Earlier, an EPF account was considered inoperative if it was dormant for 36 
  • From November 11, even these accounts will continue to accrue interest.
Pls refer to the circular as it was issued in November 2011 Pls see  (Old Circular) where in an EPF account was considered inoperative if it was dormant for 36 months or more. Since April 1, 2011, inoperative accounts did not attract any interest. Thus, if an employee resigned and did not take up another job, or failed to transfer his account to the new employment, the funds in an idle EPF account did not earn him any interest.The notification has amended this scenario. 

The provisions of the EPF scheme are now amended to provide that an EPF account will be considered inoperative only when the employee retires from service at 55 years or migrates abroad permanently , and in both cases does not make an application for withdrawal of the accumulated balance in his EPF account within 36 months. An account will also become inoperative on the death of the account holder. 

The amendments will benefit employees who leave mainstream employment and take up self-employment to fulfil their entrepreneurial goals or take up employment with small employers not covered under EPF scheme.Such employees can now leave their EPF fund balance with the authorities and continue to receive interest. This change will create a new investment option for such employees
