The Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) is a savings vehicle that many salaried people have. The investment in it happens automatically. With the launch of EPFO’s unified portal, using its various services has become less tedious. Further, the services available on the portal, like online PF claims, are in line with the organisation’s aim to go paperless.
To avail different facilities, one has to access the ‘Member Unified portal’ of the EPFO. One may log on to http://www.epfindia.gov.in as well and then click on ‘Member UAN/Online services’.
Before you are able to start using the services on the ‘Member Unified portal’, you need –
i.) UAN and,
ii.) The UAN must be activated.
