The unified mobile application for new-age governance (UMANG) appis all set to make life easier for pensioners.
Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), through its ‘UMANG app’, will now allow subscribers to access their pension passbooks.
The pensioners/subscribers will simply have to click on the ‘View Passbook’ option and enter the required PPO number and date of birth information.
After successful validation of the information fed, an OTP will be sent to the registered mobile number of the pensioner. On entering the OTP, the ‘Pensioner Passbook’ will display the details of the pensioner—name and DOB along with last pension credited information. The facility to download the financial year-wise complete pass book details is also available.
Other e-services of EPFO already available through the UMANG aap include employee-centric services (view EPF passbook, raise claim, track claim), general services (search establishment, search EPFO office, know your claim status, account details on SMS, account details on missed calls), pensioner services (update Jeevan Praman), and eKYC services (Aadhaar seeding). The app can also help a subscriber get remittance details by establishment ID and obtain TRRN status.
