EPF Passbook Check – Login and Download UAN Passbook

Saving money is an excellent habit to have. Savings aid in the planning and preparation for a secure future. Investing in a provident fund is one of the most prevalent ways to encourage people to save for a happy retirement. It’s an investment fund into which both the employee and the employer/government put money into an employee’s retirement fund. The article will provide you details about the EPF Passbook Check and the processes to download EPF Passbook

All provident fund investments are done in the EPFO’s (Employee’s Provident Fund Organization) account. For such accounts, the EPFO assigns a Universal Account Number (UAN). The EPFO assigns each of its members a 12-digit number known as their Universal Account Number. It is a unique identifier for members who are eligible for the provident fund. The UAN remains the same regardless of employment changes. EPFO’s services are completely available via the internet.
