Step 1: Login in the UAN member portal and go to online services and click on claim form 31.
Step 2: Enter your bank account number and after verification click on proceed for the claim.
Step 3: Now select PF advance form 31 option. Now you will find a new option called select service.
Step 4: Here select your previous PF account number from which you want to withdraw your PF amount.
