Old Age Pension

Social Security Pensions
Social security pension is an important source of support for the weaker sections of society including the widows, old people, divyang (differently abled) and those suffering from debilitating diseases. This amount was a pittance at Rs.125 per month around twenty years ago when the organisation started working, and even then the amount was not paid regularly. The pension amount was paid into the accounts of the beneficiaries from the Tehsil office and often these amounts were late from the state level itself. The organisation has helped hundreds of beneficiaries over the years to file for benefits under the programme and it has also agitated to ensure that the benefits reach people on time. Most importantly it has worked hard to increase the pension amounts. As of today the amount is Rs.1000 per month which is still not enough given the inflation.
