Understanding UAN (Universal Account number) and its effect on PF Withdrawal / Transfer

Universal PF Account number has become a reality now, thanks to the untiring efforts of EPFO, India. A unique Universal Account number (UAN) has already been allotted to all contributory members of EPFO and its services are expected to become operational from October 16, 2014. Right now EPFO is in the process of integrating KYC details with the UAN of each employee.

You might have already heard about this new system from your employer or from your friends and might be thinking how will it benefit you. To answer that, lets understand first what is UAN.

What is the purpose of UAN (Universal Account number)

UAN is a unique number which will remain associated with an employee throughout his career. It will be portable across companies and can be used anywhere in India. On changing jobs, the employee will still get a new PF account number from the new employer but it will get linked to this unique UAN. Thus, UAN will be like an umbrella for the multiple PF accounts allotted to an employee by different employers.

Before the introduction of UAN system, employees had to depend on their employers to verify and clear the PF withdrawal form. In many cases, employers had misused this dependence - they would keep the withdrawal forms pending, they would threaten the employees that if they leave the company they wont get their PF withdrawal forms signed, etc. To end these dependency problems and to facilitate centralization of employee data, EPFO has introduced UAN.

By introducing UAN, EPFO will also be able to track job changes of every employee. On a job change, the employee is required to provide his UAN to the new employer who will in turn link the new PF account to this UAN. Thus, EPFO will have information on where a person is employed at any given time. This will also prevent people to make EPF withdrawals on job change.

What are the benefits of UAN to an employee

  1. EPF Transfer and EPF Withdrawal will take lesser time.

  2. No need to depend on employer to forward the claims for EPF Transfer and EPF Withdrawal. They can be submitted online easily.

  3. Details of all the PF accounts can be viewed at one place.

  4. There will be transparency in PF account/s. EPFO will send a monthly SMS intimation of PF amount.

  5. (In Future) Employees need not apply for transfer of PF accumulations on changing jobs. The procedure for the same is yet to be launched by the EPFO.

How to start using UAN

To start using UAN, you will need to use UAN Member Portal. Below are steps to login and activate your account:

  1. Check whether you have been allotted a UAN - Click on Know your UAN Status and enter your EPF number.

  2. Contact your employer to obtain your UAN (if you have been allotted one)

  3. Activate your UAN - Click on Activate Your UAN and enter your UAN, Mobile no. and EPF number.

  4. Login to UAN member portal - using the password created while activating the UAN.

That's it, start using various facilities given through UAN -

  • Link Previous Member IDs (PF account numbers)

  • Enter KYC Details

  • Check eligibility for online transfer claim

  • Download e-Passbook

  • Download UAN Card

  • Edit personal details

  • More services are likely to be added in future.

FAQs:

  1. Will I still need to transfer the old PF account while changing jobs or will it get merged automatically?
    Ans:- In the initial phase of UAN, you would still need to transfer the old account. Though, the process would be lot more convenient as it can be done easily online on UAN portal. However, In future, employees need not apply for transfer of PF accumulations on changing jobs.

  2. How will UAN helps in PF transfer/withdrawal process?
    Ans:- As there will be no need of employee verification anymore (because of KYC details seeded with UAN), you will not have to approach the previous employer for EPF transfer/withdrawal. You can directly apply online.

  3. Can I update/upload my KYC document through member portal?
    Ans:- Yes, you can do so. Your uploaded KYC document has to be digitally approved by employer, till then status of KYC will be shown as “Pending”.

  4. What is to be done in case I change the job and join somewhere else?
    Ans:- You need to simply declare your UAN to your subsequent employers.

  5. What is the helpline number of UAN?
    Ans:- Helpline numbers: 1800-118-005 (toll-free) or 0471-2449545.

    I am Bandhu Prakash Saha.I have a problem regarding the UAN.PLease help me out.
    I have worked for 3 months in a company and there my UAN was generated . But In that UAN The Date Of Birth , Fathers Name fields are blank because my previous company has not entered that details during creating that PF Account. Now i am in a new company. Here when my present employer was requesting a UAN For me the there was 2 options :
    1)Linking Up the Previous UAN to the Present PF Account.
    2)Requesting For a Newly Employed Member UAN (Or Something Like this , I cant Remember the exact word)
    As in my Previous UAN there was no Date Of Birth & My present Employer has given the correct Date Of Birth in Present PF Account , So when My Present Employer was trying the First Option then a System Generated Message Is Coming That Date Of Birth Mismatch.
    Then I told my Present Employer to do the 2nd Option. But 1 month has passed away My UAN has still not generated . My collegues have got the UAN in 7 days after applying..
    What should I do in This condition ? Please Suggest Me.

    I have joined a new company since 1 year where there is no PF facility as my salary comes in higher bracket. I had PF facility with my previous employer (worked for 8 years) however the account is non-operational as the company has defaulted on payment for two years.

    Please let me know the options to get my PF amount. Can I close or transfer it without my previous employer's help as they are not co-operating.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi I recently left my first company working less than a year & joined new company. I don't want my new employer to know about my previous work that's why I don't want to share my PF details. My question is my new employer will issue me new PF account, so can I have two PF accounts. Also I have a PF - UAN number from my ex employer which is not activated yet on EPFO website. So will there be any issue if new is alloted to me by new employer ?

    My UAN was provided by old employer. I have activated the same and able to view the passbook of my contribution at old organisation. My new organisation has created new PF number but not yet linked to my UAN. Now in this situation can I go ahead and transfer the amount in my old PF account to the new PF account? Since the new account is not yet linked to my UAN what will be the consequences of the transfer?
    P.S.: My new employer is unable to link the new PF account to my UAN as the spelling of my name in my old PF account is wrong and hence not matching with my name in new account as this one is correct spelling. What to do for this?

    Many thanks for help, in advance.

    Example, i was working in A company and this was acquired by B company in last financial year (and provided new PF a/c)
    Now after logging into portal its showing A a/c as the current member iD (which is not active) and B as previous a/c and its not allowing to transfer from A to B
    Do we have any option to change the current member id to B ?

    You cannot apply online for UAN. If you are working , your employer will do so for you.

    UAN is Alloted by previous employer on Old PF no.

    UAN is a universal number which will remain same for old as well as new accounts...You have to produce this UAN (given by previous employer) to your new employer. Then they will link the new PF with your UAN automatically. I hope this is what you were asking.

    I left my previous company after serving 45 days notice period instead of 90. I joined a new company immediately after that, now my previous HR is not providing my UAN to me. And also not supporting in pf transfer.

    I have recieved UAN from my current employer. I was planning to withdraw money from my last employed PF account. Can I still do that since I have been alloted with UAN but did not activate that yet ?

    You might be able to withdraw if you have not activated UAN. But I would suggest transfer of old EPF amount to the new account. Legally that is the right thing to do.

    As of now, the withdrawal process remains same as described in prev post - http://www.humlog.net/finance/pf-withdrawal-form19-form10c-instructions
    Going forward (when you have linked your prev. accounts to UAN and withdrawal service is provided in UAN portal) the process might change.

    Have you checked whether you have been alloted a UAN number? You can do that by clicking "Know your UAN Status" (as mentioned in my post).

    Once you login into UAN portal, you will see the "Previous Member ID tab" on top. It will have the "List Previous Member ID" option in the dropdown. On clicking it, you will have to enter the previous PF account number and once you verify the details, you should be able to add it to your UAN.
