Hi Seniors,

I have joined an organization 3 months back and through form 11 I have requested them to link with my existing UAN.

Unfortunately when I'm logging in I can't see my present employment there, it's only showing my previous employment. I have talked to the concerned HR person and she told me that it'll take some time to show off and to get updated.

Today in unified employee portal I clicked on "äctivate UAN" and then put my pf account no mentioned in my pay slip, I also put my name, DOB and mobile no, then it showed that UAN already available and then it sent an OTP in my mobile no. The moment I put that OTP into the prescribed place it showed UAN activated. I also received an sms containing "UAN activation Password", I don't know where to use it.

I failed to understand why was it showing? If my present employer had linked the account no(In older system, because I joined in October) with the existing UAN then why this activation took place?

Does that mean they have activated a different UAN even after submitting the form 11 and requesting them to link with it?

What I know is the employer links it and the employee has nothing to do with it. So even if I tried to activate UAN using my present epf account no it should not show me "UAN is available, please activate it" and then after putting the OTP it showed activated.

What's this? Is my present employer linked with my original UAN or they have generated a new one?

Kindly advice.

during the period of aug and nov joining employees, all have been issued fresh UAN, linking was disable from sept 2016,
though present system will also get off, and new LIN system will come through shram suvidha portal, where under a singal id , EPF / ESI and other labor welfare contributions would get paid.
getting account transferred, or making your old UAN linked is not a big issue, just be confident that which one is fully KYC complient,
or if you want to surrender new uan and want to link with old uan then mail your wish with detail to nominated officer of your juridication
list is in the link

In my last company I worked for 6 and a half years and they generated the UAn and that was fully kyc compliant with PAn, Aadhar, Bank account.
So you meant to say in this new company I have got a new UAN? Then I have to ask that UAN no because in my last 3 months pay slips only epf member account no is mentioned but UAN no is not mentioned.
After getting this new UAN can I transfer my balance from old UAN to new one? I hope that will not affect my pension period and will not show any break in my career as far as EPf is concerned because I don't have any break.

if you want to keep your old uan, which is KYC complaint ( aadhaar, bank and pan is digitally verified, and UAN is activated) then ask employer to seed the old UAN with your joining date, and from next contribution use old UAN for payment, if it is not KYC complient, then system will ask to seed all KYC data, otherwise will refuse the same
after the successful seeding of your old UAN and one ECR payment from present employer, you can make transfer of the money deposited in alternate UAN, by filing the claim here One Employee One PF
in all situation, the employee is at no loss. just system is trying to rectify the errors linked with member's database.


vice versa, you can transfer your old balance to new account also, , but in all case you have to get ensure that which one has correct data, maching with aadhaar, pan and have no date or spelling errors, .......... same site will do the both side transfer, just log in with the UAN which one you want to keep active,
as soon as the amount get transferred, ( usually 30 to 60 days time it takes) , the linked UAN would get abolished and would be intimated to the employee over the registered mobile)

Thank you sir. I don't know. I have to ask her whether in this month she has already linked the establishment code with my old UAN or not and then submitted ecr or not.
Coz what you have stated that if I want to keep the old UAN I have ask her to seed my date of joining with that old UAN and then the company has to give one ecr, may be she has done it this month itself and if that happens then in any case
I have to transfer the amount from new UAN to old UAN. In that case I will have the privilege to choose which one to keep and which one to dissolve. If before filing ecr in this month she has already seeded my DOJ with my old UAN then I'll have only one option left.
Anyways thank you once again Sir.

with same DOJ and DOB you can have have two UAN in same establishment for this period, however you have to choose which one you want to keep amd close the another one by taking transfer.
as i said earlier , this system will also go to end soon, and EPF/ESIC and other labor returns would get a unique identity.

Sir, thanks for your advice. I have joined 3 months back but yesterday only I came to know I have been allotted another UAN, only after talking to you. So, thank you very much. Today morning I sent a mail to the person concerned and got the 2nd UAN, activated it,logged into it successfully, couldn't see the pass book as I guess I have to wait for 4 days after activation. Now this 2nd UAN is also kyc compliant as mentioned in the UAN card though I don't know what documents were used to make it kyc compliant, is there any way to know it?
Now the situation is both my UANs are kyc compliant. What should I do now.
You have already told me earlier that I can carry any if these two but still I would ask you which one should I keep and please tell me when can I transfer it? Can I transfer the money from the old one to the new one or from the new to the old right now? Or I should wait for a few days.
Kindly help me out with your invaluable guidance.

WAIT 10 days, and look into KYC details, KYC details are visible in profile KYC update,
if both are fully KYC compliant then you have choice to keep anyone, and close the 2nd one, by transfer.
However later this year, all such accounts would get clubbed and would get merged to LIN, based id
there is no fear of loss of any money or pension,


I will try to transfer my money from UAN 2 to UAN 1. Before that on last friday I had activated my UAN 2 and logged in successfully. On last Wednesday (After 4 days) I downloaded the passbook of my new company.

Now the problem is I have opened One Employee One PF account Portal One Employee One PF

I'm giving the same mobile no used in UAN 2, the same UAN number (UAN 2) and the same Member Account no (Which is linked with UAN 2). I have verified and re-verified it several times. I'm badically trying to authenticate it as my present employment and tried to link UAN 1 just in case if I able to transfer UAN 1 to UAN 2.

But everytime I'm clicking on generate OTP it's showing invalid credentials. The mobile no used in UAN 2, the UAN no and the member account no all are correct then why it's showing ïnvalid credentials"?

Can you please tell me why it's happening.

These are the same details which are showing post log into the unified member portal. Then why it's showing invalid credentials?

For your reference I'm attaching the screenshot of the same.

Kindly help me out and guide me what to do? Isn't this account no linked with the UAN anymore?

Please help.
