If a pensioner forgets his or her PPO number at any point or needs to seek a PPO, he or she can instantly retrieve it by submitting either a bank account number that is linked to the EPF or a Member ID that is the EPFO's PF number for the pensioner. A unique 12-digit number that lets retirees access their pension benefits is a 'Pension Payment Order' or 'PPO' number. For retirees or other individuals on the edge of retirement, this is an important number in order to receive pension. In addition, it is important to note this PPO number while submitting a life certificate per year. For any contact made to the Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO), a PPO number is generally a reference number.
