UrFU offers students, employees e-card to replace paper documents

Students and employees of Ural Federal University were able to apply for the University Electronic Card on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The UEC is a single card that serves as a passport, driving license, insurance card and bank card. Issuance of UECs was permitted through a special agreement between UrFU and the Sverdlovsk regional government.

UEC cardholders are expected to phase out their use of paper documents, such as social security cards and insurance certificates. Currently, Yekaterinburg residents with a UEC use the card to pay for public transportation and other municipal services.
