UAN or Universal Account Number is a 12-digit unique number issued to every employee contributing to the EPF (Employee Provident Fund). When a person is employed for the first time, the employer has to get the UAN generated for the employee. The basic criteria for the company to generate UAN is that the organization has to have 20 or more employees.
In case an employee has been assigned a UAN number in the previous organization, he/she has to share the details of the same with the new employer before a new UAN gets generated.
Nowadays, everything related to EPF has become online, and once the UAN login is done, one can easily find all the features under the EPFO portal.
To understand how to find out UAN numbers, there are two ways, i.e., through employers or through the UAN portal.
Usually, employees are allotted a Universal Account Number by their employer under the EPFO. Some employers also mention the UAN number in the salary slips.
