Employee Provident Fund Organization has launched a major project called “Re-Inventing EPF India’ to provide world class service to all its clients. As part of this project a unique 14 digit identity number called Social Security Number (SSN) is allotted to every Provident Fund subscriber. Social Security Number is compulsory for every Provident Fund subscribers in the new system for providing all kind of services.

Why do I need it?

After Allotment of Social Security Number

§ You will have one unique number for life time including for your Pension after retirement.

§ You will get “Any Where Any Time Facility”, when all the offices of Employees Provident Fund Organization are eventually linked together electronically in a phased manner.

§ There will not be any necessity to transfer your Provident fund accumulations every time you change your employment, or move from one place to another.

§ Your Provident Fund account will be updated every month instead of the present yearly updating.

§ Eventually, when the necessary infrastructure is put in place, you can know your Provident Fund balance even over telephone (IVRS), through the internet or through specially set up interactive kiosks.

Hope it will be usefull

can any one tell me how do I cross verify the NSSN,

I was working with a company at Hyderabad for last 5 years and some 3 years back the EPO office people came and took photos and tole soon we shall be receiving NSSN,

But after another year they again came back and we went for photos again, but this time after verifying my details they told me that I was already registered when they came last time and both the old registered guys and new guys would get the NSSN numbers in a couple of months.

this happened in feb 2007

then I changed my company and my accounts people told me to continue my Pervious PF account in the new company,

After some delay i was able to get a Number starting with 120000xxxxxxxx presumably the NSSN number as i was informed,

I gave this number in my new office and they are putting my PF to this account,

when I asked if this number is referring to my name, my current office people are telling they are simply putting my PF into the number I have provided, it is my duty to find out if that NSSN pertains to me or not ?

How do i verify if this number belongs to me ? or the PF is getting credited to some one else ?

This is in use in only some state, Karnataka is yet to implement this. Maharashtra is not settling withdrawals without this number/ registration. I had applied for withdrawal when i changed jobs. The form that was sent for applying for the NSSN is lost in transit and the company refuses to send another copy. Can some one help in getting me a second copy?
