I forget my UAN password and recently changed my adharcard name, how to handle this problem any ideas?

Your PF details like name and DOB should match your Aadhar details, otherwise, you will get this error.

Please note that i am facing the same problem of logging UAN portal with my UAN ID, but i don’t have my old mobile number with me. Also i have tried more than 20 to 30 times by sending e-mails to my employers for updating my DOB ( from August 1978 to October 1978). but they are not reverting me with proper replys.
Request you to kindly suggest what to do.
If possible better visit your PF office directly and submit the PF joint declaration form and request a letter to correct your date of birth and link your new mobile number with your PF account.
But on PF joint declaration form your employer’s signature is required.
(Or) you can request your PF office directly to link new mobile number with your PF account, after linking you can apply dob correction online on UAN portal.
Trying to retrieve my password but I am not getting the option of registered mobile number. Everytime I click on forget password and enter the details it is only giving Adhaar option. My Adhaar is linked but there is a name mismatch so when I enter my Adhaar number the mismatch message appears. How do I reset my password when I am not getting any option of mobile number or pan.
I have the same exact problem. I think only solution is to do offline correction of mismatch

I forget my UAN login password and also updated mobile number not available.
How to login and update my new mobile number in UAN Portal.
tried below way
Click forgot password, then since I no longer have my old mobile number, I am selection Send OTP as ‘No’. Then filling name, DOB, Aadhar details and submit, It asks Aadhar number again, I submit twice and it still asks for Aadhar number again.
Could you please guide me to update new mobile number in UAN.
Maybe your Aadhar is not linked to your PF account (or) your details on Aadhar and PF are not matching like your name, DOB.
Hence you don’t have your mobile number with you, you have to visit your PF office and ask them to link your Aadhar with PF, later you can reset your UAN portal password.
Did you find any solution i am facing same problem.
Exactly facing the same issue this website is good for nothing.
Same problem. It asks for the Aadhaar number continiously. Such a poorly built website by the National Informatics center
Even after following the above sequence of processes, I have been getting the message to submit the adhar number again and again.
I have clicked Click forgot password and as I am not having my old mobile number, I chose the Send OTP as ‘No’. Then filling in the name, DOB, Aadhar details and submit, It asks for the Aadhar number again and again. And it’s not going forward for the new mobile number option.
please help me. I am totally confused and do not know what to do further.
Maybe your Aadhar is not linked with your PF (or) the details in your PF account and Aadhar is different. So please check them.
I am trying the same , but my condition is I don’t have Aadhar or PAN card linked to the UAN. Is there any possibility to get OTP to a different mobile number.
If Aadhar is not linked then it is not possible to get OTP to another mobile number.
You can visit your PF office they will link Aadhar with PF, later you can change the UAN portal password by using any other mobile number.
I am facing the same problem. The website also states that there is a option to choose between AAdhar and Pan number to validate but the protal is not showing PAN number option.
I also hav same prob
I think this EPF website itself is poorly developed. Why wouldn’t it allow Employees to change their Mobile numbers? Of course, there should be some authentication, but no at the cost of having to do a vigorous, lengthy online process.
I am Just following this process. Click forgot password, then since I no longer have my old mobile number, I am selection Send OTP as ‘No’. Then filling name, DOB, Aadhar details and submit, It asks Aadhar number again, I submit twice and it still asks for Aadhar number again.
Try in a different browser like Mozilla Firefox.
