As per EPFO circular dated 1st Dec 2017, the EPFO has introduce a facility to the members to merge their account to the current PF accounts so that the EPFO may help them in the integration of all these PF account in current activated UAN.
After validating credentials of the members, the EPFO would allow them to register their previous EPF account numbers for consolidation with the current UAN. The facility can be accessed on the EPFO website at the 'Employees' Corner'.
Under this facility, subscribers of the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) can merge as many as 10 previous accounts with their UAN at one go. Currently, the EPFO subscribers are required to file separate transfer claims online using UAN on the EPFO's UAN portal. But to avail of the facility, they are required to activate their UAN that is seeded with bank accounts and other details such as Aadhaar and PAN.
Those subscribers without UAN activation can also do so online through the transfer claim portal facility of the EPFO.
