UAN Login

The UAN number, given to EPFO subscribers, has several advantages. Some of these are ease in shifting to new jobs, merging a number of PF accounts, etc. Logging into the unified UAN portal gives you access to all of this.

About UAN

As already mentioned above, with the UAN, employees can merge their multiple PF accounts and manage it like one. When shifting jobs, all that the employee has to give his/her employer is his/her UAN. Now, on the UAN portal launched by the EPFO, subscribers can merge as many as 10 PF accounts in one go. That said, in order to avail the facility, the employee is required to seed his/her bank account with the UAN, as well as attach details of their Aadhaar card and PAN.

The employer will then forward the form to the regional PF office for approval. The verification and approval process will take around 15 working days. Once the mobile number has been changed, the subscriber will receive a notification message from the EPFO that his/her mobile number has been changed.

Merging Multiple PF Accounts using UAN

Now, instead of closing a PF account every time a subscriber changes his/her job, he/she can merge multiple PF accounts using their UAN and manage all accounts as one. For those who wish to merge multiple PF accounts using their UAN, they can follow the steps mentioned below. Subscribers will have to ensure that they have the below-listed conditions in place before getting to the process of merging their accounts.


  1. When changing jobs will my PF Account automatically merge or do I continue with my old PF Account?

    You will have to transfer your old account (with your previous employer) to a new one. Your current employer will give you a new PF account number, to which you can transfer your funds from the previous account. This can be done on the EPFO member portal and is a fairly easy task. Though, since the UAN is still in the initial stages of implementation and covering all fields, in the future you wouldn’t need to. Providing the UAN to your current employer is enough to initiate the transfer of funds as the UAN links all PF accounts.

  2. How will UAN help in the PF Withdrawal Process?

    The UAN has all your KYC documents (PAN card, Aadhaar Card, etc.) seeded in its system. In the future, you will not need the attestation of your ex-employer (always a hassle for many) to transfer funds or make withdrawals. All that the PF account holder needs to show to make a PF transfer or a withdrawal is his/her Aadhaar card.

  3. Is it possible to upload the KYC Documents using the EPFO’S Member Portal?

    Yes you can, but your employer has to digitally attest your documents using his/her digital signature. Once that is done, your documents which will be seeded in the EPFO member portal will be valid. Till the process of attestation is done, your KYC will show as “Pending”.

  4. What has to be done if I change my job?

    With the introduction of the UAN, the processes with regard to PF accounts have become far more relaxed. Now, all you have to do is to declare your UAN with your present employer. The UAN will link all your accounts and it will be maintained as a single UAN account.

News related to UAN

  • Generate your UAN on your own

    If you were an employee that has been waiting for days or even months for your employee to generate your UAN, then this news would be a sigh of relief. Now, the EPFO has set up its online portal to allow employees to generate their own UAN, without the interference of the employer. According to an official, as a new employee, you can simply generate a UAN and provide the number to your employer at the time of joining, when you need to fill up forms for your EPF contribution. As per a circular of EPFO, establishments with large number of new joiners are facing problems due to mismatch of data with Aadhaar. Therefore, an open functionality is being provided where employees can generate UAN on their own.
