UAN-is an important for every employee who is coming under the EPF scheme. UAN is known for Universal Account Number. It’s a unique number generated to every employee. The employee can’t change or modify or delete this UAN number. In India, the EPF act was implemented from 1952. As per this EPF scheme, the companies which are maintaining twenty or more than twenty employees, in those employees who are earning equal or below than 15000 INR per month as a salary they are mandatory for registering an EPF account.
And those who are earning more than 15000 INR also their wish to join in this EPF account. Now, most companies are giving the EPF facility to their employees. This EPF amount should not be withdrawn up to the employee age near 60 to 62 or up to their retirement time. Because, if an employee is eligible for this EPF scheme, there will be a deduction of 12 % amount from their salary to their EPF account. Simultaneously, the employer should give the same.
Here, is a small note, the employer contributing 12% amount to employee EPF account. In this 12%, 8.33% amount will be contributing to the Employee’s pension scheme and the remaining 3.67% of the amount to employee EPF account. Additionally, the employer should pay 0.5% to EDLI, Employees Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme and 0.65% of the amount to EPF administrative charges and 0.01% of the amount for EDLI handling fee.
So checking this provident fund amount is very important. The employee should know their provident fund amount and how much interest they are getting on it and what are their employer contribution. In 2014, the government introduces UAN to reduce the employees EPF account-related problems and for claims of provident fund and transferring of old provident fund amount to new PF account. And to verify the PF balance and its details also this UAN helps you. This is a 12 digit unique number.
