UAN | Meaning and Definition

What is UAN?

EPFO will provide a UAN (Universal Account Number) (Employees Provident Fund Organization). This is used to link multiple Member Identification Numbers assigned to a single member to a single Universal Account Number. This allows the user to see all of the Member Identification Numbers associated with their UAN account. 

If someone already has a  Universal Account Number (UAN), he or she must supply it while joining a new business so that the employer may match the new Member Identification Number to the existing Universal Account Number.
