In your working career you would have changed jobs and would not have thought about your PF transfer.

However currently UAN (Universal Account Number) has become mandatory for every employee and UAN remains portable throughout the lifetime of an employee and they don’t have to apply for PF transfer claims at changing jobs, because merely providing your UAN number to your new employer shall be sufficient so the employees starting their career afresh have the benefit of UAN which was launched in 2015.

But the concern is towards employees working prior to said launch of UAN who will have various EPF account allotted by their respective employer, It is to be brought under UAN so that all the EPF account balance can be viewed under one roof of UAN

Therefore, consolidating various EPF under UAN shall help to have a clear view of all your prior and existing EPF account balance under one allotted UAN

      Namaskaram Jayesh,

      There shall be only one UAN for one employee and it is not permitted to have more that one UAN,

      The reason for duplicate UAN are
      1. You might have not shared your existing UAN
      or
      2. Previous employer has not updated your exit date

      Hence kindly mail your details to my mail id :
      ak.krupa@outlook.com

      i shall reply you with procedure details

      Pranam,
