(EPF/PF) UAN Member Portal

UAN (Universal account number) is a unique number alloted by Employee Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) to every employee contributing to PF (provident fund). This number has now become mandatory for every employee so if you want to avail any of the EPF services like PF Withdrawal, PF Transfer, PF Balance Check etc. you need to have your UAN.

Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) had launched UAN based Member portal to provide a number of online facilities to its members - this portal is also called Unified Portal or EPFO e sewa portal. Registration is required to avail these facilities. Let us understand how to register and login to the portal.

UAN made mandatory to deposit PF contributions

EPFO has launched new version of UAN and ECR (Electronic challan-cum-return) on December 20, 2016. In this new version, EPFO would not accept any PF contributions without UAN. Before submitting contributions through ECR, now the employers are required to generate/link employee's UAN. The generation/linking of UAN can be done through an online functionality on UAN portal. This step is taken to reduce discrepancies relating to member's name or name of father/spouse, date of birth, etc.
