Apart from various additional features given by this government-developed program, EPF users may track PF accounts via mobile phones by using a specific app. The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation is in charge of overseeing the Employees’ Provident Fund system, 1952, a contributory provident fund system for employees in India’s organized sector.
EPFO is a statutory organization of the Government of India’s Ministry of Labour and Employment. As a member, you are enrolled in the EPF Scheme 1952, which is an investment that guarantees great returns upon retirement.
You can also automatically become a member of the Employees Pension Scheme 1995 and the Employees Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme 1976, which provides insurance in the form of an amount linked to your PF balance in the tragic event of death while in service.
EPF services are provided on the UMANG app for tracking PF balances and filing claims. There is now a special EPFO portal where you can access all of the services. The UMANG app is the only official app through which EPFO services can be accessed.
The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) and the National e-Governance Division (NeGD) created the UMANG app, which stands for Unified Mobile Application for New-age Governance, to advance mobile governance.
UMANG is a single platform via which all Indian residents may access pan-India e-Government services from Central to Local Government organizations. Aadhaar, EPF, PAN, Passport, DigiLocker, Bharat BillPay, and other services are available through various government agencies and companies.
Users can use the UMANG app to apply for Partial / Final PF Settlement. Users can also activate their EPFO UAN on Umang under Employee Centric Services. SMS cannot be used to activate UAN. However, you may use the UMANG app to activate UAN. You can also use the UMANG app to file withdrawal, advance, and pension claims (after e-Nomination).
