We encourage you to contact your local Patronato or Consulate in order to have your completed Proof of Life form submitted electronically through Citi's Agent Portal, thus, eliminating the need for you to mail it to the designated P.O. Box and giving you immediate comfort and assurance that the Proof of Life information or certificate has been received and is being processed.
Please refer to Citi Pensioner website for details on the nearest Patronato/Consulate location. Pensioners residing in the remaining regions and countries will be included in Proof of Life campaign starting in 1st quarter 2018.
Please be advised that the amount of the pension to be paid is determined by INPS.
Upon receipt of the instruction from INPS, Citi will pay the exact amount indicated by the pension provider. If the pension is paid in local currency, the exchange rates applied will be available on the Citi/INPS website.
If you would like to receive more information about the amount of your pension, please contact INPS directly.
Please note that the time required for the pension to be credited in your current account depends on the beneficiary bank. We invite you to contact Citi only if you did not receive your payment within your account by midnight on the given day.
