What is UAN?

The Universal Account Number (UAN) serves as a distinctive identifier issued by the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India, to employees enrolled for Provident Fund schemes. Upon changing jobs, an employee is assigned a member identification number. These identification numbers, both current and previous, are interconnected through the Universal Account Number system.

Once an employer registers on the EPFO (Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation) Portal, the UAN can be generated. With the Universal Account Number, employees gain access to various functionalities including claims submission, tracking claims status, checking PF balance, uploading Know Your Customer (KYC) documents, and filing for e-Nomination.
