A Pension Payment Order number, or PPO number, is a 12-digit number that facilitates retirees in receiving their pension benefit. The PPO number is useful when applying for a pension. Furthermore, this PPO number must be stated every year when submitting a life certificate. A PPO number serves as a point of reference for any contact with the Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO). If a pensioner forgets his or her PPO number or has to locate it, he or she can quickly get it by providing either the bank account number, which is linked to EPF, or the Member ID, which is the pensioner's EPFO PF number. To get your PPO number using your bank account number or PF number, follow the steps outlined below.
