Defense pension is a financial support provided to retired military personnel and their families by the government. It is intended to help them meet their financial needs in their old age and is typically based on the individual’s length of service and rank. The amount of pension can vary depending on the rank and length of service which has been redressed in OROP. In addition to monetary compensation, defense pensioners may also be eligible for other benefits such as health care and education.

Submission of Life Certificate is a mandatory action required to be taken every year by all pensioners.  Due to introduction of SPARSH, it was difficult to submit Life Certificate within stipulated time as framed by Defence pension authority.  In recent days an important notice has been circulated by the PCDA (P) that those who fails to submit Life Certificate by 28 February 202, pension may be stopped.  A copy of the notice is reproduced below :-
