In this post, you are going to know Epf UAN Activation / Registration Process. I want to make one thing clear, both UAN activation and UAN registration are the same. Do not think that the process is different. Your UAN number is already automatically generated by Epfo and you have many more. You just need to know your UAN number and activate it in different ways as mentioned below.
If you are looking for different ways to activate UAN or register a UAN number, then this article is for you. Dive into the main topic.
How to find UAN number
Before you learn how to activate a UAN number, you must know the UAN number. You can get a UAN on your payment. If it is not available in your payslip, then you should contact your organization’s Human Resources or Personnel Department to find your UAN. This only applies to those who deduct PF from their salary.
You can also find your yuan number online. Find my previous post UAN number with PAN or PF number. Please read that post.
