For salaried workers, the UAN is an important document that allows them to keep a check on their various Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) accounts.
At the same time, the Pension Payment Order (PPO) number is a unique 12-digit number that is required for pensioners to get their pension.
Subsequently, the EPS Certificate is a document issued by the Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO), which has the details of the service of the Provident Fund member.
