What Is UAN?

The Employees' Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) issues a 12-digit universal number, or UAN, to everybody who has an active EPF account. When requested by the employer, EPFO provides the UAN number, but if it has not been issued, a member may only produce it using their Aadhaar number.

Now, it is crucial to know that the employee's UAN will remain the same regardless of the change in companies and designation. The perks are such that members with UANs can download or print their passbooks, get their UAN cards, and check all member IDs that are linked to them anytime they desire.
