    FAQs about UAN

    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 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 first you 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.
