    Hello Manish. I left my previous company in Sept-16 with having some UAN no. Now My new organization again allotted me new UAN no. So now i have 2 UAN no and both are active. Recently today i have update KYC i.e. aadhar,PAN (same in both UAN) and Bank details(different in both UAN). It is possible to transfer old UAN amount to new one and how? Same KYC can be a issue ?
    Please note No gap in both employment, New UAN generated in Sept-16.

      Hi Santosh Kumar Purohit
      You can transfer the fund in new EPF account and merge the UAN.

          Hi Akanshu Sharma
          Yes you can transfer your money from old account to new one by merging both the accounts. KYC will not be the issue.

    1. You need to check for this with EPF department itself. We are not sure of the process

  4. Arvind says:

    Sir I have left my previous company and I am going to join a new company. I have not disclosed my previous engagement to my new employer. I have withdrawn my Pf balance. Will my new employer will generate anew UAN?? Is there any chance that they will know this? On epfo website I’ve checked my credentials but there it is showing member not found.

  5. Sam khan says:

    Hi sir,
    I left my previous company in April 2017 and joined a new company in may 2017.
    I want to withdraw my PF.
    I don’t want it to be transferred as I’m in need of money.
    My question is I haven’t uploaded my adhar on the EPFO website during my service with the previous company.
    What is the method that implies on me in order to withdraw PF.
    Also I got my first salary from my current company and the PF amount deducted is showing as “dummy” as I’ve not provided the UAN.
    So what will happen this case.

    1. All you need to do is fill the EPF withdrawal forms and mention the details of your first EPF . However note that its not legal to withdraw EPF while you are in employment !

    Hi.

    I had a UAN number form my previous employer. I resigned there in Dec 2016 and joined new company in Jan 2017.
    When I gave them my UAN number created by previous employer, I was told that it is inactive (I can still log in online and check all details) and they were not able to map a new PF account with it.
    Hence my current employer generated a new UAN for me.

    Now, while creating the new UAN, they gave my mobile number which is already registered with the previous UAN.
    I am not sure how they were able to create a new UAN using the already registered number , but they did it somehow.

    Now, I am not able to access my new UAN. To login, i need to generate a password. When i go to “forgot password”, my mobile number id displayed as 0.

    The current employer has shared the screenshot in which they have given my current mobile number.

    I have no clues regarding what is happening with my new UAN.
    As per employer, PF is getting deposited into it, but I caanot check details. I do not get any messages either.
    I am not even sure if the employer is depositing money into it or not.

    Please help me. I am very tensed.

    1. You can just do a RTI enquiry about the balance in your account and on which date employer deposited the money, and you will get all the details.

    2. Gavin Fernandes says:

      For the first UAN account change you mobile number(if you have secondary number). Then for the New (second ) UAN put the your Primary phone number and register it. you will be able to see the current employers transactions.

  9. Shameem Sultana says:

    Hi Manish,

    I had an UAN number from my previous employer (old company). I worked for more than 4 years there. When joined new company, I applied for PF transfer. With the help of my finance & Account department colleagues and their guidance, the approval for PF transfer was done from their end. But when contacted the respective staff of my old employer/Company, they said they didn’t get any intimation regarding the pf transfer and hence it never went approved from their end.

    Later I got to know that, my current company had updated my DOB and DOJ wrong and due to that I have got the new UAN number.

    So I activated this new UAN with my new phone number (As One phone number can be registered with one UAN only and my regular/old number is already registered for the old UAN). Now I am finding it difficult to update my KYC details for the new UAN. There is always some error popping up when tried to update my Adhaar and PAN details. Is it because the same Adhaar and Pan details were given for my OLD UAN KYC?

    Next issue what I am facing is – whether my old PF is transferred to my New account / NEW UAN or not?
    I have an EPFO app installed in my phone. When tried to view the passbook by logging with OLD UAN – the status shown is “Settled/Not Updated”.

    When tried to view the passbook by logging with new UAN and new number – then message is shown as “Invalid Credentials/Data Not Available”. Whereas, this new mobile is registered with new UAN. How can I confirm the new mobile is registered with new UAN? Because, when I login with new UAN and password in unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/memberinterface/ site – I am able to login and when check my contact details or My Profile – then the new number is updated over there.

    Also, I tried to check my PF balance from both of my mobile numbers by sending message as EPFOHO UAN ENG to 100718194018

    When sent the above message from old/regular number i.e OLD UAN registered number – the message is received with all the details along with Total Contribution shown as 0. Does this mean my Old PF is transferred to my current company’s account?

    Whereas, when sent the message from my new number i.e. NEW UAN registered number – the message received is “No UAN is activated with this mobile number. Kindly activate your UAN to avail EPFO SMS services”.

    Tried approaching my Current company’s respective staff for the details – but they could not help out as even they looked confused or ask me only to keep trying or Google it.

    Please, help me getting out from this mess. And what exactly is the status for my OLD PF / UAN and new UAN.

    Please help me out what exactly is going on?
    1. Why is it showing as invalid credentials for my new UAN when tried to login in the app to view my passbook?
    2. For my first UAN why is the status shown as “Settled/Not updated” when tried to login in the app to view passbook? What does this status mean?
    3. And is my PF transferred to new account?
    4. If my PF is transferred to new current company’s account – how did it happen when my old employer has not received any intimation or neither was approved by them?
    5. And why am I facing the difficulty to update my KYC details for my new UAN?

    Thanks in Advance.

    1. Hi Shameem

      As per our experience in these kind of complicated cases regarding EPF, the best and right information you can get is from the RTI route !

  10. Shanti Paul says:

    Hello sir.I m shanti paul.my problem is I could’t withdrawal my pf amount but my employer is not giving his digital signature in the form…he is demanding for 3000/= money.

    1. Is it ?

      You should complain about with EPFO !

  11. Nagaraj says:

    Hi
    I have two uan number. I would likw withdraw my pf amount in previous uan number. So it is possible or not

  12. Chiru says:

    I am having a tough time . Please help me Sir. I had an UAN for the last four years of my career and all the old PF accounts were linked to it. 6 months back I joined a new company that created a separate UAN with new PF account. They also did not initiate the transfer of my PF balance from old UAN to the new .

    Now due to some emergency , I had to quit the company . On a new firm I am joining , they asked me the recentmost previous UAN number . So I had to give the UAN my last company created for me that did not have the last 4 years of PF balance.

    Now what can I do ? Please help.

    Obviously, this new firm is again going to create a separate PF account and probably will link it to the last newly created UAN. But all my major PF savings is on my old UAN.

    What can I do ?

    Even EPFO member portal is not working for me . Suggest a help.

    1. Hi Chiru

      I suggest that you now take the RTI route. You can file the RTI and ask your queries to them. THey are bound to reply you on your queries.

      Its a bit long cut, but works well

    2. Gowtham Raja says:

      you can connect two UANs online or with the help of your employer so only the recent one will be active and the old will be deactivated automatically so that all your claims can be done with your new account itself

        Hi Manish,

        I have worked in a year till end of 2015, and I am having PF, UAN . now I got new job but i don’t want to disclose my previous employer details. Can i say i don’t have UAN ?? Is it possible to create another UAN with same identity proofs (PAN, etc)

        1. You can surely refuse to give your UAN and say that you have none. But I am not clear if they will be able to find out about your past employment or not at this point of time. WIll have to find out more on this .

          1. Jaga says:

            Do we face any issue while creating another new UAN with same old proof’s (PAN,Aadhar,voter ID) ?

  24. Rajeev says:

    I’ve stared job only a week before as a Fresher. Now I’m leaving it and joining a new employer. I didn’t get any salary. I don’t know weather they created a PF account or not but they mentioned they’ll start giving PF after 6 months of joining. I haven’t disclosed this to the new employer. I also tried to register on EPFO but I haven’t received my UAN yet. I cannot track the registration status also as I don’t have request ID, I only have UAN acknowledgement number. Will new employer create a new UAN for me.? I don’t want my new employer to track my previous emplyement.

    1. Yes, they will create your UAN .

      1. Vishakha says:

        Hello Manish Sir,
        I have left first job , they have created 1 UAN , and in another company new UAN has been created . So now i have 2 UAN for 2 different companies.

    Hi Manish
    scenario – I had worked in a company A in year 2014 end ( nov14 to jan 15). Pf was deducted from my salary. I never was aware of the UAN activation so i never activated my UAN. Later after further studies i am joining another company where i havent disclosed my short term prior employment. What should i do? Should i let them make another UAN and then activate this new UAN. I am not concerned about the 2 months pf deductions. I just want to know whether they can issue me a new UAN and everything will be as good as i have never worked before?
    Regards

    1. Rajeev says:

      I also have the same query. Please answer

    2. In that case activate a new UAN only

    Hi Manish,

    Can we transfer funds from one UAN to another UAN ? and then close the UAN number which is not required ?

    Thank You

    1. Its not that easy. I think you need to check this with EPFO website directly.

        Thank You so much Manish. Can you please help me answer my previous question. I am really stuck in this.

  29. Shivalika says:

    Hello,

    I need urgent advise. I have 2 UANs. Before i could share my previous UAN my current organisation has generated New UAN for me. So all y payslips are reflecting the new UAN number however i am unable to activate the new UAN as the old one is already active with my PAN number. I have also checked with payroll team and they have confirmed that As per PF department rule’s I need to active present Employers UAN number and register the same in the UAN portal. Post registration I can list my previous Employer PF details in the portal and intimate the PF transfer from previous Employer to present Employer to view the details of contribution in one-shot.

    I am confused here on what exactly i need to do. I am unable to activate the new UAN as it is linked with my PAN. Also what will happen to the amount that is present in my old UAN will that get automatically transfer or i need to withdraw. Or i need to initiate the transfer online.

    Can someone please help me urgently.

    Regards,
    Shivalika Pathak

    1. From what I understand you need to link your EPF account (not old UAN) to the new UAN

      Check this – https://www.quora.com/Can-a-person-have-more-than-one-UAN-universal-account-number

    2. arya says:

      why don’t you use a different phone number to activate it?
      Once a UAN is generated,it should be activated…
      I guess the only trick is to use a different phone number every time!
      Do let me know if your problem was solved or not……

    I worked in company A , my uan got created when I left company a month back but till now I didn’t update my kyc.. Is there any way that new company wouldn’t know my uan/my detail of company A if I don’t tell them…Is there any benefit for my situation if I don’t withdraw my pf amount and don’t upload kyc to old uan??Will it then also be attached with me only or without kyc details will that account become invalid after sometime?? Please reply asap please….

    1. If you give your UAN to new employer, they will come to know about your past employment

  31. Sumeet says:

    Hi,

    I worked in company (Company A) for 3 years and they have provided me my UAN & PF account number. Then I joined another company (Company B) where they have created new UAN & PF a/c without asking me. Now I have left the 2nd company (Company B )within 4 months and joined next company (Company C),here I have provided the UAN & PF account no of my first company (Company A). Please help me what should i do in this scenario ?

  32. Payal says:

    Can there be two UANs under the same PAN and AADHAR Card number?

    1. Technically yes, if you already have a UAN from employer 1 , and dont tell your employer 2 about it, then they will create another UAN

      1. ruthika says:

        I worked in company A and left after working for 3 year then joined another company B(I transferred pf to Company B ) but due to some issue I left Company B(worked for year). Now join Company C if I don’t give UAN will they able to find out.
        I don’t want to show I worked with Company B.
        Please ans me ASAP.

        1. With UAN, it might be possible to find out your past employment

          1. ruthika says:

            If I give only PF number of Company A will it be possible to find UAN??

            1. No, if you provide UAN then they can find the old employment !

    2. arya says:

      hi payal,

      can you please tell me if your second uan had the same pan or aadhar card like the first uan?
      its very urgent

      1. pramod says:

        Sir, Will there be new UAN number for new PAN?
        How can i change PAN number in EPFO account?

        1. As far as I know, PAN does not change, only name changes if you apply for it !

    Hi,
    I want transfer amount from my last two PF accts to current PF account. But I have two UANs, how to solve this…Please help.
    Details : My first company allotted a UAN to me. I left my first company on 26th Dec 2014 and joined second company. The second company opened a new UAN for me instead of using the existing one. And now I have joined third company in Nov 2015.
    I want to transfer both of those PF accounts to my current PF account (i.e. third one ). But I am confused as I found that I have two different UAN accounts opened by those two last employers.
    In my current company, I have given UAN allotted by my first company. If I login with the first UAN then I can see first and third employers PF accounts listed.

    Please help in transfer procedure in my case. I am ready to pay any consultancy charges.

  39. karthik says:

    Dear Sir

    • My previous employer(3 years before) is not yet registered for online PF claim transfer.
    • And still I am not yet claimed the amount.(problem with Employer)
    • Now I got one new UAN from my current employer
    • Recently I came to know about that Form 19 (PF claim by No need of employers signature)
    • So is it possible to get one more UAN number and claim through Form 11?

    Hi Manish,
    I left my old company and joined new company. I was not aware of my old UAN but its activated, however I never logged in into that account and not using my previous phone number to reset the password. Is it possible to generate a new UAN? If yes, can you please tell me how can I generate that, because when I tried to generate the new UAN it shows “This is under process (thought ECR)”. Kindly help me.

    Thanks.

    1. You need to talk to your employer for this.

  45. Rahul says:

    Hi Manish,
    In my case also, 2 UAN generated. But my previous UAN is already active and linked with my old employer PF account. now my new employer has generated new UAN now they want me to delete my old UAN and use new UAN. I really don’t want to use new UAN but they are saying you have to use new UAN and deactivate old UAN. I have already transfer my previous PF amount to new PF account.
    Is there any way to linked my new PF account to old UAN and deactivate new UAN?

    Dear Sir,

    UAN has been created by my old company but i didn’t activate it. I didn’t disclose to my new employee about old company. So will it be a problem if I ask for a fresh UAN from new employee?

    1. No, that should not create an issue for you

    Hi Manish,

    I have a similar problem where my prev employer had generated a UAN for me and i had also activated it.
    When i switched my job i did nt provide any details of existing UAN due to lack of awareness about UAN significance and my new employer created new UAN for me.
    Now i have ended up with 2 UAN’s and the newer one cant be activated on same registered mobile number.
    What do i do? I have already initiated the PF xfer process which has been approved by both present n prev employers.
    My active UAN has details of my past PF account only and current PF details wil be linked to new UAN which i am unable to activate.
    Please help. Is it possible for me to use new mobile no of new UAN and link my prev PF accounts to it. (By the way my prev employers PF is already linked to older UaN)

    In my case also, 2 UAN generated. But my previous UAN is already active i.e. online and my new employer has generated new UAN. I have withdraw all my PF amount from Previous account , Now I want to activate new UAN.
    But it is say that ur mobile number is already registered for another UAN. So i am not able to activate the new UAN which is given by new company.
    1) So how can i activate the new UAN to view my PF amount of new company.

    1. You dont need to activate the new UAN , just use the old UAN only

  51. Doshi says:

    Hi Manish,
    In my case also, 2 UAN generated. But my previous UAN is already active i.e. online and my new employer has generated new UAN in this May 2015. Now I want to transfer my previous EPF amount to new acoount.
    1) Can I transfer this amount?
    2) Should I activate the New UAN account online?

    1. KIRTI says:

      Hi Manish,

      I am also stuck in same situation. In case you get some solution, please share.

  52. That does not matter . What you need to do now is activate one of them . The one which you will activate is your actual URN .

    I suggest that you activate the one which was given by your present or recent employer !

    1. Happyinvest007 says:

      Hi Manish,

      Just one doubt on above your response.

      What about the amount credit by previous employer? How someone can claim that amount without activating UAN number (given by previous employer).

      1. For that you apply for the manual withdrawal , dont transfer it !

        Manish

          1. Arti says:

            I also have 2UAN and my second employer has made mistake in writing father’s name while applying for new UAN. So both are not getting linked. Also PF transfer /withdrawal not possbile

    2. Jabba says:

      Or you can simply change your mobile number in previous UAN account to some other number..as you withdrew all the amount already that account is useless.

      After changing the number in old UAN, try activating new UAN number..it will not show same message again..

      Right Manish?

      1. But for that you need to have access to old phone
