UMANG App has been a big hit among EPFO subscribers enabling them to utilise services in hassle free manner from the comfort of their homes even during COVID-19 pandemic. During the current financial year from 1st April to September 2020, a total of 7.91 lakh claims have been filed by the members on UMANG App. UMANG has enabled members overcome the mobility restriction induced by COVID-19 pandemic in accessing EPFO services and thereby reduced the need to physically visit the offices of EPFO.
