How to Activate UAN | 3 Easy Ways
Last Updated on December 8th, 2019 by Bhupendra Singh
In this post we will know in detail the process of UAN Activation or Registration.
Before knowing the process of UAN Activation, we need to know all the information about EPF and UAN.
So let’s first understand EPF and UAN.
What is EPF?
The EPF (Employees Provident Fund) scheme was launched by the government in October 2018 to protect some part of the monthly income of the people for the future.
Nowadays, it is applicable in the whole of India and almost all the people working in all the small big Compnies, Schools, Hospitals etc. are depositing the Employees Provident Fund.
You do not need to go to the EPF office to submit EPF. The HR Department looks after this work in your companies and it is their responsibility to open your EPF account and provide you with a UAN and password.
Every month under EPF service, part of EPF is deducted from your salary and deposited by HR department in your EPF account. There is no need to deposit this money to be told separately for this.
The best thing in the EPF scheme is that as much money is deposited in the EPF account from the salary of the employees, the same amount of money is put into the EPF account of the employees by the employer and the government.
Now that you have understood the EPF scheme, let’s understand about UAN.
What is UAN?
All accounts of the EPF scheme require an account. In which the employees’ money will be deposited and the employees can check how much money they have.
All the work related to EPF can be done by this name, so an account has been created which is named (UAN) Universal Account Number.
In simple language, UAN (Universal Account Number) is the account number of your EPF (Employee’s Provident Fund).
Through UAN, individuals can know the amount of their EPF and can also send the EPF amount to their bank account.
The UAN of all people will be different, it is only through UAN that you can do all the functions of EPF.
Why is UAN Activation required?
When you start working in any company or organization, then the HR department of the company or organization looks after the entire work of your EPF.
The HR department itself opens your account on the portal of EFPO and provides you the UAN number, pasowrd, through which you can make all the EPF activities online.
After getting the UAN number and password, UAN has to be activated, after which you can check your EPF balance through UAN, can withdraw money from EPF online and can do all other work related to EPF.
What are the requirements for UAN Activation Or Registration.
For UAN Activation you need the following things.
Registered Mobile Number: The mobile number that you gave at the time of EPFO registration in HR department should be activated with you because while doing any work, OTP will come on that number, which you will have to enter on EPFO website.
If the number you gave at the time of registration of EPFO is banded, then you will have to turn it on, then register another number from HR department or EPF office.
UAN: It is very important to have a UAN nearby, through which you can make UAN ACTIVE.
If you do not have a UAN NUMBER, you can take a UAN number from your HR Departmemt.
You can also get UAN or EPF ID on your Salary slip and if you do not get the UAN number from your HR department nor do you get salary slip then you can search UAN online by PAN Number and Aadhar Number.
UAN Activation Or Registration Process
