Important information
Taking into account the requirement to complete Proof of Life certification for the year 2015, and in light of the recent obligations that INPS has been required to fulfill, the localization of payments at Western Union involves only July pension payments for those individuals that did not provide a valid Proof of Life certificate within the established timeframe. Consequently, those individuals that pick up the said payments by July 21st, 2015 (within the timeframe necessary for Citibank to process August transactions) will have successfully completed the Proof of Life requirement, and subsequent payments will be made via the previous payment method. In the event that the July payment is not picked up within the aforementioned timeframe, subsequent payments may be suspended, and can only be reinstated either by completing the paper based Proof of Life certification, or by picking up the July payment at Western Union no later than September 24th, 2015.
