The EPFO have introduced new UAN based claim Form 10D, for its subscribers for fixing their pension without employers' attestation.
As of now, the subscribers seeking pension under the Employees' Pension Scheme 1995 have to get their pension claim application attested from the employer to fix the retirement benefit after superannuation, reports PTI.
"A simplified UAN-based pension claim Form 10-D-UAN has been introduced," the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) said in a press release.
" The claim form can be used by members whose AADHAR number and bank details have been seeded in the Universal Account Number (UAN) and have been duly verified by the employer using digital signature and the employee details are available in Form 11 (New)", the press release said.
"EPF members now have an option to enhance their pensionary benefits. The benefits are available to those members who opt to defer their pension beyond 58 years up to 60 years of age with or without contribution after the age of 58 years", added.
