How to find out your EPF account’s UAN

Every person who contributes to the EPF is issued a 12-digit unique number called a Universal Account Number. EPFO will assign you a UAN (Universal Account Number). The UAN will serve as a central repository for all of an individual’s member IDs issued by various organisations/companies.

The UAN will remain the same throughout an employee’s career, regardless of how many positions he or she holds.

How to know your UAN

Step 1: Visit the official EPFO website https://unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/memberinterface/
Step 2: Click on Know Your UAN status
Step 3: Choose state and EPFO office from the dropdown menu.
Step 4: Enter your PF number, personal details like your name, date of birth, mobile number etc

Note: Your salary slip will provide you with the PF number/member ID.

Step 5: Enter Captcha and click on ‘Get Authorisation Pin’
Step 6: The UAN number will be sent to your mobile number.
Step 7: Click the ‘Validate OTP and get UAN’ button after entering the PIN.

Your Universal Account Number will be sent to the phone number you provided.
