UAN Registration Procedure for EPF Account

Employee Provident Fund (EPF) service is initiated by the Employee Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) under the guidance of Government of India. The EPF fund is created by the employer, and thereby, a UAN (Universal Account Number) is allotted. This number is portable through different employers and remains the same all through the work tenure of an individual. This UAN number makes it quick and easy for you to check your EPF balance online, view UAN EPF passbook and also make withdrawals. However, to get started, your UAN id should be registered to your EPF account. Here’s the procedure.
