Old-Age Pensions For BPL

The Uttar Pradesh government provides three types of pensions to people living below the poverty line (BPL) as a social security and financial assistance program for the economically weaker section. The government’s social welfare department, which implements the schemes, publishes the beneficiary list with details of the schemes, eligibility, and payments annually. Let us know more about the UP Old-Age Pensions For BPL Category.

If you haven’t received the pension, check the list for the respective year on the official website. If you are not a member yet, you can apply for the schemes online by providing the required documents and personal details. Pensions are disbursed online by the social welfare department.

The pension types are senior citizens, destitute widows, and people with disabilities and leprosy.
