Universal Account Number is allotted by EPFO as a blanket number for multiple Member (Employee) accounts given to individuals by various establishments. The objective is to link all the Member Identification Numbers (Member Id) of a single member to one Universal Account Number (UAN). This allows a member to view details of all the Member Identification Numbers (Member Id) that are linked. Once a member is allotted Universal Account Number (UAN), he/she must provide it while joining a new establishment. This allows the employer to tag the newly allotted Member Identification Number (Member Id) to the existing Universal Identification Number (UAN).
Now, EPFO members can update their EPF KYC information online by using the UAN EPFO website. To update or change KYC (Know your customer) details on the UAN EPFO portal, members will require a UAN (Universal Account Number) credential. Members will need to login to the EPFO UAN portal for updating KYC information by uploading the required documents on the website.
The KYC details that are essential to be updated include PAN card number, Aadhar card, and bank account details. If not done so already, members must update this information on the portal at the earliest. Updating KYC information on the EPF portal has many benefits.
If the account is up to date (i.e. KYC document updated account) then the individual will not experience any delay during transfer or withdrawal of funds. In case the bank account details have been not updated then there are higher chances of the claim getting rejected. In some cases, the EPF account holder may not have the privilege of receiving SMS alerts in case KYC documents have not been submitted.

In case an employee is facing issues in getting approval after updating KYC information on EPF portal, here are some of the steps that he or she can follow:
RTI to the EPF department
The employee can register an RTI to the EPF authorities seeking the reason on pending KYC verification. To give more ground to the RTI application, the employee can attach hard evidence in the form of screenshots with the RTI application. It also makes sense to file for RTI through an expert so that the process is followed and right responses can be sought.
Register Complaint with EPF Authorities
The employee can register a complaint with the EPF authorities through the grievance cell. The complaint website is at this link. The site is only meant for submission of online complaints. In case an employee has not received UAN no. from his/her employer and has not activated the same, he or she cannot file an online complaint using the portal.
Reach Out to the Employer
Normally, a company’s HR department looks after all the EPF matters of employees. Hence if KYC approval is urgently required, it may not be feasible to go for RTI application or the online complaint process. In such a scenario, the employee can directly reach out to senior management of the organisation for registering a complaint and escalating the matter.
Here are some of the important points to remember while making an online claim around EPF:
An employee has the right to get his/her documents approved from the employer within a month’s timeline. If not done within such a timeline, the employee can furnish a request letter to the HR department and move to the EPF authorities to complain against the employer for not cooperating during the process.
An Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) account must be KYC compliant. In case the EPF account is not KYC compliant, then the member will be unable to avail various online services on the Employees Provident Fund Organisation's (EPFO) Member e-Sewa Portal.
