EPFO pensioners are in very miserable state. Monthly pension they are getting less than a monthly electricity bill for their house. Agitation is going on for review by Govt. But Govt is maintaining dumb n deaf attitude. This is state of pensioners in the nation intended to march towards five trillion economy. One should not forget that these pensioners have devoted their whole life contributing to build nation. more  
Since longevity is increasing and interest rates are falling,also inflation is always there, every one must have social security in one form or the other and it must a reasonable amount to survive for all times.As you grow older your medical and transport expenses increases.Pension must be inflation linked. more  
Though retired in Feb.' 19, revised personal details approved by employer submitted to PF online which has not yet been updated in PF records resulting inordinate delay in PF claim settlement till date. Repeated follow up has no desired results. more  
Following problems faced with EPFO for a span of over 10 years :

1. Statement of account not shared when UAN was not introduced
2. Failed transfer not intimated by concerned EPFO
3. Account ledger entry made after one and half year of membership date
4. The employee attitude at EPFO is money belongs to them/ govt.
5. Even date of birth correction required help from pgportal
6. All problem resolved after continuous complaint with pgportal for last two years
7. replies to pgportal grievance used to be sent without attachments
8. One PF account number was shared when in employment, after two years it got changed
9. One EPFO doesn't reply to the query of the other EPFO clearly
10. Wiped away interest on accumulated fund for over three years while transfer failed due to nexus between employer and EPFO.....hope others will share many more
