EPFO: Get PPO number online via bank account or PF numbers; here is how to do it
- The Pension Payment Order or PPO is a 12 digit number required while applying for pension and submitting one's life certificate.
Almost every employee of any suitably large organisation is a member of the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) and is registered under the Employees' Pension Scheme (EPS). These employees are provided with a unique 12 digit number or code to help them get pension after their retirement. This 12 digit number is known as Pension Payment Order or PPO and is allotted by the EPFO to every employee who retires from any organisation. The PPO number is required while applying for pension and submitting one's life certificate or Jeevan Pramaan every year.
However, if a pensioner forgets his or her PPO number, he can either find it by using his bank account number linked to the Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) or using the Provident Fund (PF) number. "Get PPO number using Bank Account Number or PF Number," EPFO had tweeted earlier.

It can be noted that Employees' Pension Scheme 1995 (EPS) is one of the schemes offered by EPFO and provides a monthly benefit for superannuation/retirement, disability, survivor, widow(er) and children. Minimum pension on disablement and past service benefit to participants of erstwhile Family Pension Scheme, 1971 is also offered.
As per the information provided on the official website of EPFO, the Employees' Provident Fund came into existence with the promulgation of the Employees' Provident Funds Ordinance on the 15th November, 1951. It was replaced by the Employees' Provident Funds Act, 1952.
The Employees' Provident Funds Bill was introduced in the Parliament as Bill Number 15 of the year 1952 as a Bill to provide for the institution of provident funds for employees in factories and other establishments. The Act is now referred as the Employees' Provident Funds & Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 which extends to the whole of India.
The Act and Schemes framed there under are administered by a tri-partite Board known as the Central Board of Trustees, Employees' Provident Fund, consisting of representatives of Government (Both Central and State), Employers, and Employees.
