Pension trouble? Get app to ease retirement hassles

Retirement is meant for comfort but the formalities that follow post-retirement are not easy at all.

Keeping this in mind, the Personnel, Public grievances and Pensions Ministry has a pensioners’ portal to facilitate the procedure to access retirement benefits.

Taking the move further, the central government has, now, launched a mobile application for retiring central government employees.

How would the app help?

The app would help them in monitoring the progress of their pension settlement.

The app would also help the retired employees to assess their superannuation funds and record complaints, if any. It would provide a pension calculator too.

The mobile app extends the same information on mobile handset which is available on the portal of the Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare.

The pensioners will also get updates on any orders issued by the department.

Use app for award

The app is launched by MoS for DoPT Jitendra Singh.

The app would also verify the entries for ‘Anubhav’ award.

The ‘Anubhav’ scheme was instituted at the behest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi who encouraged retiring or retired employees to submit their experiences while working in the government to create institutional wealth for the government for future governance and inspire the coming generations of government officials.
