Universal Account Number

With Universal Account Number (UAN), employees can merge their multiple PF accounts and manage it like one. At the time of shifting jobs, all that the employee has to give his/her employer is his/her UAN. Now, EPFO has launched the UAN portal in which subscribers can merge as many as 10 PF accounts in one go. According to that, the employee is required to seed his/her bank account with the UAN, as well as attach details of their Aadhaar card and PAN in order to avail the facility.
