Retirement fund body, Employees’ Provident Fund Organization, has launched a facility for formal sector workers to obtain universal account number on-line.
Now workers can generate Universal Account Number from the EPFO portal directly.
At present, workers are required to apply through their employers to get the Universal Account Number.
Union Labour Minister Santosh Gangwar on Friday launched this facility during the 67th Foundation Day celebrations of the retirement body in New Delhi.
The Minister also launched a facility for its over 65 lakh pensioners to download their pension-related documents like pension payment order on DigiLocker.
