Frequently Asked Questions
The Old Age Samman Allowance Scheme is a social security scheme implemented by the government of Haryana, India, to provide financial assistance to elderly persons who are unable to sustain themselves with their own resources. Initially started as the Old Age Pension Scheme in 1964, it has undergone various modifications and enhancements and was renamed the Old Age Samman Allowance Scheme in 1991. The scheme aims to ensure the benefits of old age allowance to the needy and poorer sections of society, such as agricultural labourers, rural artisans, SCs/BCs, and small/marginal farmers. The scheme provides a monthly pension to eligible persons who are 60 years or above, and whose combined income from all sources, including that of their spouse, does not exceed Rs. 2,00,000/- per annum. The pension amount has been increased over time and currently stands at Rs. 2500 per month since April 2021. The scheme is implemented through the Zila Parishads, and the pension is disbursed through the Panchayati Raj Institutions.
