In this post, I will explain how can you get your EPF Universal Account Number (UAN) online and how to check or activate or register your UAN and how to check the UAN status online. Also, I will explain how to check the PF Balance online using UAN.  

In Dec 2016, EPFO has also launched a new unified portal where you can get PF passbook, check KYC, UAN Card etc – read my post

Mar 2017 – PFRDA has now notified process to transfer EPF to NPS (New Pension Scheme) – Read my post.

 

What is PF Universal Account Number (UAN)?

Universal Account Number (UAN) is unique 12 digit “portable” number allotted by EPFO to its members.

You will be able to check your employee provident fund balance, download PF passbook, receive monthly credit updates/alerts and even transfer funds from old accounts to existing account.

EPFO is currently considering to make the UAN number compulsory for all members. Read news.

How to check your PF UAN Status

  1. Your UAN is readily available with employer. You need to take the UAN number from employer and then activate it at the link provided below
  1. Go to the UAN portal —   https://unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/memberinterface/

Click on ‘Know your UAN status.’

 

    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You need to enter your PF account number or Aadhaar or PAN

 3) If UAN is already generated, you will need to provide details for verification

Enter the member name, date of birth, mobile number and email address. The name and DOB should match with EPFO records.

Also, you need to give a password as after the verification you would be automatically registered with the UAN member portal. Fill the CAPTCHA and click on ‘GET PIN’.

You will receive the PIN at your mobile number. Fill this pin at the given column. Click on the check-box of ‘ I Agree’. Now, click the submit button.

  3. Hello,

    I provided UAN, mobile # & and all other details. It was verified and I got a message that the pin was sent to my mobile. Bu t i never received it. The number was correct and I tried it many times but haven’t received the PIN even once. Does anyone else face the same issue. And any clue whom to contact if we don’t receive the PIN?

  4. HI SIR,

    1. COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT THE PENSION FUND, WHETHER IT IS AVAILABLE WHEN WE RESIGNING THE JOB FROM THE COMPANY BEFORE 10 YEARS ?

    2 I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THE NAME OF NOMINEE IN MY PF A/C. HOW CAN I DO IT?

  5. Hello Sir, Hope to find you in good health.

    Before, 3yrs with the help of your forum and guidelines I got my PF transferred. Now, I have come up with few more queries.

    My PF account (from RPFC office,Kandivali) needs to be transferred. My previous employer hasa given the PF no. only. But, my new employer is asking for EPS no. also. Where do I find this?

    Also, If we apply for PF transfer,EPS amount will also get transferred to new account or how it will be done. Because, as I said I tranferred PF before 3yrs and I got only the PF amount transferred and not the EPS amount.

    Kindly guide me for the above issues.

    Thanks

    Please confirm your DOB and get it updated in your PF A/c with your previous employer, so that, we can link your current PF account to your previous UAN/generate a UAN. ”

    I have checked in UAN , DOB has added wrong in it,. when i reached to old Co. the told they current Co. can change it and current Co. says old Co. needs to be corrected.
