UAN stands for Universal Account Number, which is a unique 12-digit number that is assigned to each member of the Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) in India. The UAN number is used to manage the EPF account of an employee and is required to access various services related to the EPF, such as checking the balance, withdrawing funds, and updating personal details.
If you have forgotten your UAN number, there are a few steps you can take to retrieve it:
- Contact your employer: Your employer is likely to have your UAN number on file and can provide it to you.
- Check your EPF passbook: Your UAN number should be listed on your EPF passbook, which can be accessed online through the EPFO member portal.
- Visit the EPFO website: The EPFO website (https://www.epfindia.gov.in/) has a service that allows you to retrieve your UAN number by providing your name, date of birth, and other details.
- Contact the EPFO customer service: If you are unable to retrieve your UAN number through the above methods, you can contact the EPFO customer service at 1800118585 for assistance.
It’s important to keep your UAN number safe and accessible, as it is required for various EPF-related transactions.
