Integrated Pensioners Portal

Integrated Pensioners Portal:

The government’s Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare recently started the Integrated Pensioners’ Portal in collaboration with Bank of India.

  • Integrated Pensioners’ Portal is specifically designed to ensure complete digitization of the pension processing and payment system.
  • It combines the pension processing and payment services of five banks (Bank of India, State Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, Punjab National Bank, and Canara Bank) into a single window.
  • Most pension-disbursing banks will be integrated with the portal later.
  • Its primary objective is to achieve transparency and efficiency in pension-related services. With this system, the pensioner’s personal and service particulars can be captured, which enables the online submission of pension forms.
  • Retirees will also be notified of the progress of their pension sanction through SMS or email, keeping them informed throughout the process.
  • A major feature of the IPP is that retirees can access their monthly pension slips, check the status of life certificates, submit Form 16, and view statements of arrears paid.
  • The portal has a Bhavishya platform and a Centralised Pension Grievances Redress and Monitoring System (CPENGRAMS).
