What is UAN?  

UAN is the short for Universal Account Number. The UAN is a unique 12-digit account number assigned to every person making contributions to their EPF account. An employee working in the private sector can have multiple PF member IDs, because they may have worked in different organisations but they have only one UAN. Knowing this number is a must to start your UAN passbook login or EPFO login.

UAN login: Member ID in PF

As you proceed with UAN login or EPFO login or UAN passbook login, Your UAN should not be confused with your PF member ID. Every time an employee joins a new organisation, the company opens a new EPF account and provides them with a new member ID. This means one person can have several PF member IDs. Once a new PF member ID is created, it is linked with the employee’s UAN. Using your UAN login or EPFO login, you can check the balance of your various PF accounts and access your UAN passbook.
