Every employee contributing to the EPF gets a 12-digit Universal account number (UAN) by the Employee Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO). The Employment of the Government of India and Ministry of Labour is responsible for authenticating the process. The employees' UAN remains the same throughout their career, regardless of how many jobs they change.
EPFO provides a new member identification number, also known as EPF Account (ID), to every employee changing a job. This number is linked with the UAN. As an employee, you can also submit a request to your latest employer for a new member ID by submitting your UAN. After the member ID gets generated, it is linked to the UAN.
When changing a job, the person must use a different member ID. To make EPF transfers and withdrawals easier, all of these member IDs are connected to the employee's UAN.
