UAN number meaning | Universal Account Number
UAN number means Universal Account Number that would be EPFO (Employees Provident Fund Organization) .This is different from multiple Member IDs that are allocated by companies when members join them. A UAN number is typically a 12 digit number similar to Aadhaar and each UAN is linked with Aadhaar so that a person can have only one single UAN during his life time.
Sample UAN will look like 1000XXXX1777 . This is unique to each and every employee and also to any member of the EPFO. The above UAN will be tagged to Member IDs which would be different for each company. A single UAN can have many member ID’s when the employee has worked in different companies. When a employee joins a new company, the UAN number will remain the same only a new Member ID would be assigned that would look like TN/MAS/XXXXXXXX ( The Member ID would contain state, office etc.,)
