These pensioners can now submit life certificate at any time. Check details


The deadline for submitting the life certificate for pensioners is end of this month, i.e. 30 November. However, this rule does not apply to those, who are receiving pension from the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) under the Employees’ Pension Scheme (EPS), 1995.

As per a tweet on EPFO’s official Twitter account, “EPS’95 Pensioners can now submit Life Certificate at any time which will be valid for 1 year from date of submission.”


According to the tweet, pensioners under EPS’ 95 need can submit life certificate at any time which will be valid for one year from date of submission. So, if last year you submitted your Life Certificate on 31st December, so this year also you will have submit it on or before the same date.  You will stop getting pension payments starting in January 2023 if you don’t submit it by the deadline.

Life Certificate is valid for 12 months from the date of previous submission.

Earlier, all EPS pensioners were required to submit the DLC in the month of November. This resulted in difficulties faced by pensioners due to long queues and generated rush for submission of Digital Life Certificate.

All benefits under the scheme are paid out of such accumulations. The fund is valued annually as mandated under paragraph 32 of the EPS, 1995,”  according to a statement by the Union Ministry of Labour & Employment.
