EPFO UAN Account Activation, Register for EPF Universal Account Number and steps to create the EPF UAN Member Login in epf portal.
Every employee definitely expects something more from their company apart from salaries and increments and health insurance schemes. So, the Indian government introduced the Employee’s Provident Fund (EPF) and its miscellaneous Provisions Act in 1952 under the Ministry of Labor and Employment.
This EPF is defiantly the best fruit for all the employees who are applicable for this service. At the time of job retirement age, the employee will get huge money by the source of EPF amount. Because, the employee will donate 12% of their salary and employer also donates the same amount, which is 12% of their employee’s salary to EPFO every month.
For example, the monthly salary of A. Ravi Kumar is 20000INR, so the employee contributes 12% of his salary, it means 2400INR & Ravi Kumar company also contributes the 2400INR to EPFO every month to Ravi Kumar EPFO account , until Ravi left that company.
Till now, the process was good. But what happens, if the employee changes his/her company due to some reasons? Even though if he/she got another job also, again that new company should open another new EPF account and other formalities. So this is a somewhat long & hectic process. And what about the previous organization EPF fund ?? So, to smoothen these type of problems, Honorable Prime minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi introduced UAN on October 1, 2014. This UAN brings all your different provident fund accounts to under one roof. By this UAN, the problems and confessions of the employees were now calm down.
Importance of EPFO UAN User Login:
The most important feature of UAN is, it’s the unique number for each and every employee, who comes under EPFO service.
If the employee & employer contributing amount to employee’s EPF account for each month, unfortunately, if the employee left his/her present job, and after some days if he/she got another job in some other company, which is providing PF to their employees, at this time the employee again needs to open a new PF account, and he can’t withdraw the previous PF amount until few months.
So this is a big loss for any employee. Because of this UAN, even though, if the employee changes his job from one organisation to another also, if he/she submits his/her UAN to the new organisation, the past EPF amount will be added to the new organisations EPF account. So here, the employees never lose their amount.
