All About UAN Member Portal

The UAN member portal offers various services, including managing PF accounts, KYC updates, withdrawals, and status checks. Learn all about the UAN portal to be able to use it more effectively.

The employees’ UAN number is a unique 12-digit number that is assigned by the PF office when employees start contributing to their PF account. Earlier, the PF account opening, managing, and tracking process was time-consuming and resulted in non-compliance on many occasions. 

Introducing the UAN number and UAN membership portal has helped centralise and simplify the system. Now, employees are assigned a unique UAN number by the Ministry of Labour and Employment. Employees can have only one UAN number during their professional tenure. It is used to unify all EPF accounts and provide easy access. 

The UAN member e-SEWA portal is the one-stop destination for accessing your EPF account and services. In this article, we will explore the different aspects of the EPFO member portal and how to use it more effectively.
