In a bid to ease the process of submitting a Life Certificate or Jeevan Praman for retirees, the State Bank of India has launched the new Video Life Certificate (VLC) service. This feature allows retirees to submit their life certificates through a video call with an SBI official.
Central government pensioners are required to present their life certificate to the Pension Disbursement Agency (PDA) each year in order to continue receiving their pension. The certificate is important as proof of the pensioner’s existence.
With the new Video Life Certificate (VLC) service, anyone whose pension is processed and paid by the bank can submit their life certificate via video call on the SBI app or website, without having to visit in agency.
Video life certificates made easy. Now, even family retirees can avail the services through the SBI Pension Seva Mobile app or website.
