    • If your mobile number and Aadhar was linked to your previous PF account, then you can find that UAN online on UAN member portal website.
      Otherwise you can know that UAN either from your employer or from the concerned EPFO office.

    • You have to transfer your previous companies PF amounts to your latest company PF account by using your old UAN numbers. After completion of transfer you can withdraw the entire PF amount.

  6. Hello, i have 3 UANs. The PF amount from old UAN has been transferred to the latest one through online.

    Question-1 : Do I need to transfer EPS-service history separately from old UAN to the latest one ? If yes, pls specify the detailed steps to follow.

    FYI: In the claim-status document downloaded from the PF-Passbook portal, it shows
    “Amount and Service transferred to : xxxx ” new PF account.
    Question-2: where to check the total service history for all UANs combined ?

    • Hi Raneesh,
      If your old UAN number was settled then there is no need to worry about that. You just need to change your mobile number linked to your present UAN number. You can do this in your UAN member portal.
      Login to UAN member portal- Go to manage – Contact details – Click on Change Mobile Number
      Once you change your mobile number then you will get messages to new mobile number.

  15. Dear sir,
    i would like to have clarification in below cases:

    1) Suppose an employee joins second company and we register him with his previous UAN no. then previous PF a/c no and new PF a/c no would be shown under his UAN no. then in that case do we need to merge those PF a/c number into one????

    2) in another case, suppose employee having one UAN and PF a/c number in xyz ltd. and he resign his job, after say 3 months he re join the same organization xyz ltd. now in that case, we have registered him with same UAN. now passbook shows two PF A/c no. so how to merge that number under same UAN?

    kindly guide me in detail

    • Hi Imran,
      In both cases, you can able to merge PF numbers by doing PF transfer.
      But as per my opinion in case 2 apply for PF withdrawal with previous PF account number.

      • So PF Dept would not merge automatically those 2 different PF account number under Same UAN????

        in case number 2 , we have already registered him with same UAN, so now its not possible to withdraw PF, so shall i fill Form 13 ?

        please guide,

        • Hi Imran,
          You can withdraw PF from previous PF account number, even f it was registered in same UAN. (Or) You can transfer PF amount from previous PF account number to new PF account number by filling PF transfer form 13.

          • so that means, whenever new employee having UAN no joins the organization, we have to registered with his/her existing UAN, and also we need to fill form 13?? is it correct?

            i thought it automatically merge with the existing PF a/c if it was under same UAN no.

  16. Rajesh..Thank you

    • Hi Chintu Kumar,
      If your previous employer didn’t mention your exit date in their PF portal then they can approve your KYC details.

  17. Hi Sir,

          • Rajesh- but when I am trying to transfer need to update Adhar number where as I am also trying to update my Adhar number but still its pending for approval ,so do you have any idea what action I need to take so .
            Thank you

          • Hi Chintu Kumar,
            Your KYC details have to be approved by your employer with their digital signature in their employer portal. So ask them to approve your KYC.

  18. If an employee wants to withdraw his PF amount for some reason & he join the new establishment immediately after the resign from 1st job & wants PF contribution new establishment. can we generate the new UAN or will the 1st UAN continues please let me know.
