If you have not updated your digital life certificate/Jeevan Pramaan in November last year, your account will get frozen.

If you have submitted, then kindly visit the paying branch and request them to check with the link branch on the reason of non-payment.

What are the mandatory documents to be collected by the branch for EPFO pension to continue?

Digital life certificates need to be mandatorily submitted every year in the month of November.

The digital life certificates are mandatory as Regional EPFO offices have stopped accepting physical certificates.
