UAN Registration & Activation Online Last Updated : 18 Oct 2019

Individuals will need to activate or register their Universal Account Number (UAN) in order to access various facilities on the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) portal. The procedure to activate the UAN is very simple and can be completed in a few minutes.

It is mandatory for employers who have more than 20 employees working for them to register with the EPFO. If the employer is registered to EPFO, all employees who are working in that organisation with a basic wage of up to Rs.15,000 must join the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) as well. 12% of the employee’s salary is contributed by the employer and employee each towards the Provident Fund (PF). Upon registration of UAN, the employee will be able to view the balance as well as PF withdrawal amount online.

My photograph does not appear on my UAN card at all. What can be done?

Currently, it is not possible to get your photograph on the UAN card. The photo will appear on the card after you update your KYC of Aadhaar, and it will be picked up directly from the Aadhaar database. This facility is being configured now and will be available to you soon.

Why does the Universal Account Number list all previous member IDs?

The Universal Account Number was configured to consolidate multiple Member Identification Numbers (Member Ids) that were allocated to a single member. This is intended to help a member view his Member IDs and further enable him to check his eligibility for online transfer of PF amounts. However, in the future, members would be required to disclose their previous Member IDs or UAN to the new employer in Form-11; hence eliminating the need to list these Member IDs in the UAN. The linking will be done automatically from the information in the Form-11 document.

Will the UAN facility be available to non-permanent Government employees, i.e., the contract-based workforce?

The UAN facility is available to all members who contribute towards EPFO. This is inclusive of contract-based employees, as well.

My personal details are incorrect in the UAN card. How can I get these corrected?

You should submit the correct information to your employer, along with relevant proof. The employer will validate and submit this information to the concerned field office. Since the UAN card is dynamic, it will be automatically updated.

Why am I allocated two Universal Account Numbers?

If there are two Universal Account Numbers allotted to you, this could be because your previous employer did not file your date of exit, and the transfer of service to your current establishment was made as well. In such a scenario, you should immediately report the issue either to your employer or send an email to uanepf@epfindia.gov.in, mentioning your UANs. After verification, the previous UAN will be blocked, and the latest UAN will be active. Subsequently, you will be required to submit a request for the transfer of service and funds to the active UAN.

What is the Procedure of Allocating a UAN to New Employees?

If your UAN is not generated by your previous employer, your new employer will collect the required information such as your previous employer details and PF Account number, verify it and forward the information to EPFO for UAN generation. Once UAN is generated by EPFO, it will be communicated to your current employer who will then make it available for you.

Can My Employer see the UANs Allotted to its Employees?
