Pension Payment


Guidelines for PDAs


Payment of Life Time Arrears

Pension for the period it was not drawn during the life time of a pensioner should not be paid after receipt of information about his/her death. According to Arrears of Pension (Nomination) Rules, 1983, pensioners are required to nominate during his life time another person to receive the arrears of pension due to the pensioner on his/her death. This is paid to the nominee, and if there is no nominee, life time arrears can be claimed by the legal heirs. Time barred claims are settled by sanction of the Pr. CDA(P) Allahabad.

Payment of Time Barred Pension/Arrears

If the pension payment has not been made for want of prescribed periodical certificates for not more than one year, the arrears can be paid on being duly claimed to the satisfaction of the PDA.Before the payment of pension which has not been drawn for more than 12 months, is made, Pension Disbursing Agencies should look for the sanction of the competent authority. Pension Disbursing Agencies should not make any payment in respect of such time barred claims without the sanction of the competent authority.

If the period stated above exceeds one year, PDA should send an arrears claim on the prescribed form to the Pension Sanctioning Authority. Only on receipt of sanction for payment of pension it can be resumed.

With a view to avoiding delay in sanction of arrears/ Life Time arrears of pension claims, certain powers have been delegated to the P.D.As, as per details given below :
