Citi Overseas Pensions to Italian Retirees

Since 1 February 2012, the Istituto Nazionale della Previdenza Sociale (INPS) has partnered with Citi to provide pension benefit payments for pensioners abroad.

End of proof of life campaign – August 2024 Cash conversion to Western Union

The first 2024 Proof of Life campaign ends in July. Pensioners included in this campaign who haven’t provided a valid certificate might get their August pension (in case this is due) 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.

All other pensioners that cannot get an August payment though Western Union will be suspended.

All pensioners can still avail of the usual certification methods (form, certification by the relevant bodies).
