In India every employee that is covered under the Employee Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 is provided a unique PF Account Number that is used to credit and debit the PF amounts. The PF number allotted to an employee is unique concerning particular organization or company in which he/she is currently working. However, when an employee leaved the current company’s job for some reason and joins a new company, the PF number also changes. Therefore, a completely unique new number will be provided the employee.
Changing of PF numbers when leaving the previous company and joining new company creates lot of confusion for the employee. This is why UAN system was introduced by the EPFO. So, the new UAN number works like a core umbrella Identification of an employee under which multiple ids are allotted to the individual. The aim is to create single window UAN system in which multiple Member Identification Numbers can be linked together.
