EPFO Portal Login: How to Activate UAN?

What is UAN?

UAN is a unique 12-digit number assigned to each member of the EPFO. The UAN helps link multiple PF accounts allotted during service years under a single parent account. The UAN serves as the main account under which the PF accounts are listed. The UAN offers various facilities like linking of PF accounts, monthly notification on the PF received, updating of PF passbook, transfer-in details in PF account and withdrawal of funds without the intervention of the employer.

The UAN remains active across the life of a subscriber. The EPFO aims to ease the processes related to PF accounts, by introducing the UAN. The employees do not need to visit their former employers for PF related documentation and transfer, as everything is managed online using UAN.
