Every employer of an organization registered with the Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) under the Employees Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 19 is allotted a unique number which is known as the Universal Account Number (UAN). This number is a 12 digit number that remains the same for all the employees throughout their life even in case of multiple switches in jobs.
In case an employee switches the job, he/she gets a new member identification number (ID) which will be linked to their UAN. The member can put in a request for a new member ID by submitting a request for the same with the new employer. The new member ID received by the employee will then get linked to his/her UAN.
Such centralized UAN numbers are useful in getting easy accessibility to transfers and withdrawals of the EPF.
