What is UAN?

The Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has introduced the Universal Account Number (UAN) for members. The number allows portability of Provident Fund (PF) accounts from one employer to another without depending on any employer for withdrawal of EPF balance. This UAN number allows a member to view all his or her EPF accounts with current and former employers. With the number, a member can initiate the process of closing old accounts and transferring balances. The number, which has to be allotted by an employer, needs to be activated.
