Since 1 February 2012, the Istituto Nazionale della Previdenza Sociale (INPS) has partnered with Citi to provide pension benefit payments for pensioners, who like yourself, reside abroad.
The second 2023 Proof of Life campaign ends on the 18th January. Pensioners included in this campaign who haven’t provided a valid certificate might get their February pension (in it’s paid) converted to Western Union collection, if this is possible in their country. This is in order to give a further chance to get certified through the collection of payment. These pensioners will receive a letter with the instructions on collection and will need to proceed as soon as possible, so not to have their payments suspended. Standard Proof of Life certification will also still be available.
We remind you that Western Union is no longer available in Brazil therefore pensioners residing in this country who haven’t provided valid Proof of Life, will have their payments suspended.

In case of payments not received due to the delay with the certification, pensioners must contact their local INPS branch for the reissue.
We offer the option for INPS pensioners collecting a monthly pension rate via Western Union, whereby the caller can retrieve their MTCN through the answering machine without waiting time 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

This option can be used by pensioners included in the cash conversion.
INPS pensioners can now also be certified by their Consulates via video-call without the need to attend in person.
