If your pension also comes, then this news is very useful. The Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has now made the Pension Payment Order (PPO) number mandatory for giving pension.
EPFO has banned pension without PPO number. In such a situation, if your PPO number is lost or you have forgotten, then the way to get it again is very easy. PPO number is a unique number issued by the EPFO to the employee after his retirement.
You will get lost PPO number from here
After retirement, a 12-digit PPO number is given to the employee by the EPFO. If for some reason your PPO number is lost or you have forgotten, then you can easily retrieve it again with the help of your bank account number or PF number. You can do this work online sitting at home.
PPO number will be obtained from this process
First of all visit the EPFO website.
Go to the next step by opening the pensioners portal and click on Know Your PPO Number on the dashboard.
Enter your registered bank account number or PF number.
As soon as you submit, your PPO number will appear on the screen.
Pension account can be transferred to other branch
You also need a PPO number to transfer the pension account from one branch of a bank to another. Apart from this, the PPO number has to be given while submitting the life certificate. Not only this, this number is also very useful in registering pension related complaints or knowing pension status online.
