EPFO stands for Employee’s Provident Fund Organization – EPFO Comes under the Ministry of Labour and Employment Government of India. The EPFO Native name is (Karmchari Bhavisye Nidhi Sangathan) and it’s founded in INDIA on 04 March 1952.
The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi launched UAN Login (Universal Account Number Login Portal) on 01st October 2014 for Employees covered by EPFO.
What is the Concept of UAN Login?
Earlier each & every EPFO Member uses to gets a Member ID after joining a Job in a Company. But when he/she left the Job from that particular Company and joins another company, he/she again gets a New Member ID that was making very hard to maintain the records of the covered Employee’s. Therefore, the UAN concept comes in the picture.
Example: – Mr. X has 2 Member ID which relates to 2 Jobs of his Careers and it’s really very difficult to transfer or carry the previous PF account to the new employer/company as there was no such way available. But now, Mr. X has 1 UAN (Universal Account Number) which contains all of this Member ID. If Mr. X joins a new Job, he/she needs to provide the UAN Number to the Employer. If he/she wants to transfer their previous PF amount to his/her new member ID.
