EPFO Engages Subscribers with Quiz, Addresses Interest Crediting Queries
MAS Team | 29 April 2024
The Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) recently organized a quiz on a popular social media platform to engage with its followers. The quiz, designed to entertain participants, also offered a certificate of appreciation as an incentive for joining in.
Some of the EPFO subscribers, instead of participating in the quiz, used the opportunity to inquire about the anticipated crediting of interest for the fiscal year 2023-24. In response to these queries, EPFO stated that the process is currently in progress and should be finalized soon. Furthermore, they assured subscribers that when the interest is credited, it will be accumulated and paid in full, ensuring no loss of interest.
Many subscribers referred to this response as a 'standard' one that they receive every year, indicating a common concern among EPFO members about the timing of interest crediting.
Besides interest-related queries, subscribers also raised issues regarding the functionality of the EPFO passbook portal. Some subscribers expressed dissatisfaction as their EPFO passbook was not working.

1. Using Umang App: Download the Umang app, enter your details, and access the passbook on your mobile phone.
