National Insurance Corporation Resumes Life Certificate Requirement For Pensioners


The National Insurance Corporation (NIC) has resumed the requirement for the presentation of life certificates for persons receiving a pension from the Corporation.

The requirement had been suspended in 2020 due to the spread of covid-19.

Effective June 2023, all persons receiving a monthly pension from the National Insurance Corporation are required to complete a Life Certificate every six (6) months.

This is one of the measures NIC uses to minimize loss from payment to persons who
are deceased.

To complete the life certificate, pensioners should present themselves at an NIC office
in Rodney Bay, Castries, Vieux-Fort, or Soufriere anytime throughout the month of June.

The above arrangement applies only to people who have not signed life certificates in
the last six months. The NIC has separate arrangements for pensioners who are bedridden.

Persons who are in receipt of an Invalidity Pension are required to submit an Invalidity
Review Form instead of the Life Certificate. Invalidity pensioners who have not done so are kindly requested to present the completed Form at the nearest office of the National Insurance Corporation.

For more information, please contact the National Insurance Corporation at 452-2808
Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am and 4:30pm or speak to a customer service representative on the NIC website at

NIC…for the benefit of us all!

  1. This nic/pension thing is the biggest scam around just an active leech on society. Welcome to take money but when the tanles are turned u have to squeeze them like a lemon if u eh have strength u barely getting juice.

  2. Six months is a hassle for people. They have to take care of elderly people and always having to struggle to beg someone to pay their bills. Where they getting time for life certificate every 6 months?. This should be yearly and only enforced at a certain age. Maybe 80 and above. Otherwise this is just burdensome.
