Each year, retirees and beneficiaries have to send to the Fund their proof of life and location, the Certificate of Entitlement. Since February 2021, this can be done with the Digital Certificate of Entitlement (DCE) app using a smartphone or tablet.
Retirees and beneficiaries can enroll and issue their 2023 Digital CE from 2 January until 31 December 2023.
Guidance materials on how to enroll in and use the Digital CE app are available on the Digital CE page.
Using the Digital CE app to issue your 2023 CE
If you have successfully enrolled in the Digital CE app, you can use the same device to open the app and issue your 2023 CE in a few minutes.
If you have not yet enrolled in the Digital CE app, you can follow these instructions to enroll in the app and proceed with your 2023 CE exercise.
Please note that a video call with the Fund’s Call Centre is required as part of the initial enrollment process.
2023 paper CE form
If you prefer to submit the 2023 CE in paper form to the Fund, please note that the Fund will mail the form to you in June 2023. If you are not paid under the two-track system, you will also be able to download the CE from your Member Self-Service account. The Fund will announce the mailing of the 2023 CE forms on our website when the process begins.
We strongly encourage you to try the Digital CE app. Since its launch last year, more than 15,000 retirees and beneficiaries have issued their CE using the app.
