INPS – Campaign to verify the existence of pensioners with an Italian pension. Years 2024-2025

INPS has communicated the procedures and timing of the process of verification of existence in life, with reference to the years 2024 and 2025, which will involve all beneficiaries of pension benefits collected abroad.

The verification phase of the existence in life of pensioners residing in Europe, Africa and Oceania for the years 2024-2025 will take place from September 2024 to January 2025. The verification also applies to pensioners residing in Ireland. Citibank N.A. will initiate the verification of existence in life by mailing the explanatory letter and the standard attestation form to pensioners residing in Ireland.

Notices will be sent to pensioners from 20 September 2024 and pensioners will have to send certificates of existence by 18 January 2025. In the event that the certificate is not produced, the payment of the February 2025 instalment, where possible, will be made in cash at the Western Union Agencies in the country of residence. In the event of failure to personally collect or produce the certificate of existence in life by 19 February 2025, the payment of pensions will be suspended starting from the March 2025 instalment.

For more information on the procedure and methods of assessment, please read the entire INPS communication no. 4071 of 16.11.2023 and, in particular, paragraph 4) of the communication or visit the dedicated page .

Please note that for the sole authentication of the signature to the certificates of existence in life, it is possible to go in person to this Consular Chancellery, even without an appointment, on weekdays from Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 13:00.

News 2021 IMU and TARI for retired AIRE members
From 1 January 2021, pursuant to art. 1, paragraph 48, of the law n. 178 of 30 December 2020 (2021 budget law), a reduction of 50% of the single municipal tax (IMU) is introduced for pensioners residing abroad and registered with AIRE (pension holders accrued under an international convention with Italy).
The reduction may concern only one property intended for residential use, owned as a property or usufruct. The same is granted on condition that the real estate unit owned is not leased or loaned for use.
As regards the payment of the tax on waste (TARI), the reduction of two thirds, already introduced previously, is confirmed.
