We shall first ascertain the correct position about commencement of policy A, and then upload the news. We are not yet aware of the correctness or otherwise of the news reportedly circulated by Bhopal Circle Association.

 MEDICLAIM POLICY A-DOMICILARY TREATMENT
Sir, This reference to my earlier mail dated 22/04/2016.I asked for clarification regarding reimbursement under policy A.I am also having policy B covered from 16/03/16.
As domiciliary treatment was done before 16/03, I claimed the bill bill for Rs.13859.You have clarified that they will reimburse only Rs.7000/= under old system and you have to be satisfied with that amount. However I am surprised to inform you that entire amount was reimbursed under old Policy A not restricting to Rs.7000/=I think 15% under policy A is taken into consideration even though migration is not done.This is for your kind information.
 
Comment: This means that migration to policy A took place earlier. But this is impossible, as we were told by Corporate Center that migration hadn't taken place even on 31st March. We are indeed confused, though not unhappy. Thanks for sharing.

 COMMUTATION ARREARS
Sir, I refer to Mr.Ram Madhav email dt 02/05/16, I have also opted for commutation and I retired on 30/11/2014.One of my friend said, how bank views the commutation lump sum and why it recovers more amount with a simple chart.
Basic Pension say Rs.25745/-Max JMG excluding CAIIB & FPA.
AGE ON RETIREMENT 60 YRS (NORMAL)
COMMUTATION AMOUNT IS 25745/3= 8581
Age next birthday 61 yrs factor 5.28
Amount payable 15 X 5.28 X 8581=679615
he says D.A is paid for the full Basic Pension at 42.60% at present.For commuted
portion you get Rs.305. If you invest it in RD for 15 yrs at8% it will work out to
rs.33123 as interest. Further if you invest the lump sum of commuted amount i.e Rs.679615 at 8% the monthly income will be around Rs.4530 and amount is invested in RD for 180 months it will work out Rs.491958. so total benefit will
come to 491958+33123=525081. He further says that interest calculated not on quarterly rest, if it is calculated it will be still more. Further D.A is taken as constant but definitely increase over 15yrs. Regarding first recovery is done from the date of retirement and disbursement done after 2 or 3 yrs. he says conversion factor of 5.28 at 60 yrs is kept the same. after 2 or 3 yrs means i.e at 63 yrs the conversion factor will fall below 5.28 which will be still worst. so recovery at 8581 for 180 months=1544580 which will be equal to lump sum received + interest likely to earned for 15 yrs. if you are a prudent investor you will more than what you repay.decide accordingly you want to commute or not he says.
 
Comment: A decision to commute pension is purely personal. We don't think it should be influenced by commercial consideration. One factor generally overlooked, is that today's lumpsum amount is of a higher value than the fixed amounts of recovery for 15 years. This could be one of the reasons behind the use of adverse conversion factors.

ram madhav wrote at 02-05-2016 08:55:

 COMMUTATION ARREARS
Sir, any conversion factor is loaded with interest. Bank is not a charitable institution to give away funds just like that.i was given 66 months worth of commutation amount. But the bank recovers from me for 180 months. Extra 114 months recovery is interest for the bank. it works out nearly 13%. Even certain benefits which can be done at bank's level without going to G.O.I. is also denied by the bank. We the bankers are always deal with income for the bank like interest, exchange and commission. To us the bank says that the conversion factor is not loaded with interest. Then what will you call the extra recovery done by the bank. The funniest part is if you look at the dates of the transaction of the commutation arrears, first recovery is done from the date of retirement and disbursement is done after 2 or 3 years.
 
Comment: You are right in expressing your concern. But the remedy lies in changing the conversion factor so that we are not cheated. Till such time the regulations are amended, we have to continue to suffer.

When those who have received arrears of pension/commutation in other circles or even in chennai circle:some of the pensioners whose april pension is revised as per x bps are still to get the arrear of pension or commutation. Interest for delayed payment or non payment till date. What to ask for. Wise thing would have been not opting for commutation on revised pension.
 
Comment: We had advised all 10th Bipartite pensioners who had originally commuted their pension, not to opt for additional commutation on revised pension, to avoid recovery and reduction of commuted pension.

 Payment of interest on commutation amount paid on 22/03/2016 Bangalore circle
I have sent couple of mails to Bengal pensioners association. There is no acknowledgement so far leaving apart response to my enquiries. I request the web Managers to respond what is the status of refund of interest on commutation recovery or payment of eligible interest on commutation difference amount. It's more than a month our pensioners in Bangalore Circle eager to know the status. Please throw some indication about efforts made by Federation in this regard.
Regards
V Subbaraja
 
Comment: We are given to understand that there is officially, no interest element in the computation of commuted pension. It is based on a conversion factor, which is historically the worst in SBI.

The additional commutation on revised pension, for 10th Bipartite retirees, has resulted in revised commuted pension decreasing in amount, and consequently recovery of excess commuted pension paid since retirement. This has led to demands for refund of "interest" on commutation. But this is not tenable unless pension fund regulations are amended.

 Group Medical Insurance Scheme
I have already joined the "B" Scheme and received the Identity Card. Yet to receive ID Card for A scheme. For availing cashless hospitalisation treatment under B scheme, I understand that we have submit a pre authorisation form through the hospital to TPA by fax or post and obtain approval. The form itself appears to be very cumbersome to be filled up in very small squares and to what extent the hospital authorise will cooperate in this respect is yet to be experienced. Under the existing REIMBS it was only necessary to give a estimate from the Hospital to the Bank and obtain their commitment letter addressed to the Hospital. Is there any thinking on simplifying the form and are there any detailed step by step guidelines for filling up the columns in PDF Format.
 
Comment: Another simplified format is also being used for submitting claims. We are trying to upload it, for the convenience of our readers.

Comment: You will have to take a considered decision in this regard, after comparing the premium and benefits. The new Mediclaim policy covers hospitalization expenses for any ailment, domiciliary treatment reimbursement for 63 ailments and day care treatment expenses of 199 ailments, at a ver low premium. Compare this with the cost and benefit of the external insurance cover, and then decide.

 Case 1875
Long adjournments should have been opposed by our advocates representing penfed and further requested the bench to have the proceedings conducted on day to day basis as the matter is pending for the last 15 years and even Supreme Court instructed the Delhi high court to dispose it of within six months. This is nothing but mockery. God only will come to our rescue.

 non payment of x bps arrear pension/commutation
Sir, It is not only the case of Mr.sridar(email 27/4) but also so many others including myself.The declaration forms were submitted in Jan 2016 and PPG dept also confirmed the received, it is disheartening to note some people were not paid the arrears till date. The pensioners assn should ascertain the reason and should inform its members. When I contact my Trichy pensioners assn, he is in dark and could not give a reply.
The Bengal circle website is the only solace to ventilate our plight. Mr.Pratip chaudhuri our ex chairman has pointed out in his face book that 8% interest should be paid for delayed payment and also the official concerned to punished for in ordinate delay. Who will Punish Our Chennai LHO PPG dept. I think god will also smile at the sufferings of Poor SBI pensioners and he will also be silent against SBI TOP officials.
 
Comment: This is a typical picture of the plight of hapless pensioners. It is for this reason that we should have strong Pensioners' Association units at all centres. Unfortunately, we cannot help from here. A strict vigil should be kept at LHO level by the Association functionaries, to ensure that these aberrations do not take place. If necessary, the matter should be strongly taken up with the CGM of the Circle.

 Payment of interest on commutation amount paid on 22/03/2016 Bangalore circle
Dear Commarade, please let us know whether Bank will provide details of commutation recovery made and arrears of pension and difference commutation amount paid to the pensioners. Any forward movement in payment of interest on commutation amount or refund of interest on _ve pension arrears recovery.
Thanks & Regards.
 
Comment: We understand that the system of payment of additional commutation on revised pension has remained the same for this Bipartite too. But unlike the earlier Bipartites, the commuted pension calculated on revised pension, is less than the originally commuted pension(calculated on pre revised pension). This has led to recovery of pension. This situation had not arisen earlier.
Some allowances which do not rank for pension, had been enhanced this time, resulting in an anomalous position.

When other circles have given last month22nd and in chennai circle it was paid to fellow pensioners on11th april and i was assured it will be paid along with april month pension still i have not received my pension/commutation arrears. When contacted agm ppg he said he felt guilty and my arrear of pension and commutation were left out. I dont know what to do. Even Cgm says you contact agm ppg only, who gives false assurance even without ascertaining the facts from his own department. Phone number 28214771 not answerer for more than two months. If you can do something ay yourlevel please help. Or with agm ppg's ego he can delay but cannot deny my paymeny. I believe in GOD. Thosr who do not do their duty are also to be punished of course by GOD. sridhar 3226921.
 
Comment: Getting sentimental won't help. Your legitimate dues cannot be denied or delayed. Please inform your Association and also Lodge complaint with bank management. These are the instances, where our Associations must exert their collective strength.

 HTL RECOVERY UPTO THE AGE OF 75 FROM PENSION
Sir, I took VRS and was relieved on 30/01/2016, but till date my HTL deduction from Pension income is not approved by AGM-RBO VI, even though recommended by BM of my previous branch. Result of which my terminal benefits are not paid to me as they want me to liquidate the same. Please advise and intervene in this regard. RBO-VI, Baroda Admin office contact no.8511192541.
Please do needful and get my fund released soon.
Thanking you,

Comment: We regret that we shall not be able to help you from Kolkata. If you had not been permitted by the bank, to continue your housing loan, beyond your date of retirement, with recovery of instalments from your pension, you ought to have liquidated the loan from your PF dues, at the time of retirement. We are shocked to learn that you have been denied payment of your other superannuation dues, for 15 years.
We suggest that you liquidate your housing loan from your PF and Gratuity dues, immediately, with the assistance of your Association and the ppg Dept of your LHO.
