The national identity card number will be used as the member identity number of the employees provident fund.

The department of Labour has decided to use the national identity card number as the member identity number of the employees provident fund.  Accordingly, the computer data of the EPF members of the semi government and private institutions are being updated at present.  Commissioner General of Labour A. Wimalaweera told the SLBC that the new EPF number will come into effect from June this year.  The employees who have worked in several institutions have several EPF numbers separately.  This will be a problem in obtaining their EPF benefits after retirement.  The commissioner general added that using the NIC number of the relevant employees will sort out this problem and the delay.
