First, what is UAN and why does our company HR always talk about it? Known as the UAN or Universal Account Number, it is a unique 12-digit number assigned to each salary that contributes to the EPF.
Unique UAN numbers are created and assigned to each PF account holder in the country by the Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO). The interesting thing about UAN numbers is that regardless of the number of job changes it stays the same through an employee’s career. To use the same UAN everywhere, an employee must make a special request to their organization’s HR team when joining, otherwise a new UAN ID will be created.
Using the UAN number, employees can visit the official EPFO website to check their PF balance and whether their company is regularly depositing money in the account. So, it is important to know a UAN number, you are a salaried person. If you still don’t know your UAN, you can find it by following a few simple steps outlined below.
