Features of UAN

EPFO member login process ensures secure access to your EPF details. Make sure to keep your login information handy to use EPFO member login feature efficiently.

1. UAN stays same even if you change jobs: Because it might be challenging to manage multiple Provident Fund accounts under various employers, UAN was created to retain centralized data on all Provident Funds.

Your UAN is then linked to your newly opened PF account; if your account is already established, you must link PF & UAN.
2. Your employer assigns & maintains your UAN number: Employers typically notify UAN when funds are credited to Provident Fund Accounts. If not, you can access EPFO UAN Member Portal to find out your own UAN. If your cell number, AADHAAR, & PAN are connected to your UAN, then it is doable.

When one moves to new city or changes jobs, it could be necessary to update or modify contact & address information. Because all information is in one location & only needs to be amended, UAN makes process simpler.
