To avoid rush at the Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) offices, the EPFO has introduced multiple options for pensioners. If your digital life certificate is due in November, now you can submit it at the nearest Common Service Centre (CSC), at any pension disbursing bank and on Umang App. The message was shared by EPFO on tweeter.
The aim of this initiative is to avoid rush, unnecessary standing in crowd or queue in order to keep people safe from Covid 19 infections, reads EPFO message on tweeter.
Now pensioner will be able to submit online life certificate at their convenience during any time of the year. The life certificate will remain valid for 1 year from the date of its submission.
