Of the roughly 148,000 beneficiaries receiving old-age and disability pension this year, about 4,559 still have not yet provided the proof of life, the Social Security Fund (abbreviated to FSS in Macao) said. According to the law, beneficiaries are required to provide the proof of life every year, otherwise their pension payment will be affected. If a beneficiary has not provided the proof of life by the end of March, the related pension payment will be suspended from April.
Whether in Macao or outside the region, beneficiaries can make use of the “Macao One Account” mobile app or its website and use facial recognition technology to provide the proof of life without leaving home (If you are a beneficiary of the Social Welfare Bureau and Pension Fund as well, you can also provide the proof of life at one time).
In addition, beneficiaries may also bring a valid personal Macao SAR Resident ID Card and provide the proof of life through self-service machines set up at about 50 locations across Macao, or provide the proof in person at a service point of the FSS. For beneficiaries with limited mobility or living in places other than Macao, besides using the “Macao One Account” mobile app, they may also ask someone to submit the relevant supporting documents for them or send the documents by mail to the FSS to provide the proof of life. Beneficiaries residing in Guangdong Province may also bring a valid Macao SAR Resident ID Card to a social insurance agency of any level in Guangdong Province to provide the proof of life, and the relevant information will be sent directly to the FSS.
