Forgot UAN Number: Find Your UAN Online

You need a unique 12-digit number to access the EPFO portal. It is also known as the UAN number. The UAN number is allotted to all government and private employees. Your UAN number remains the same if you change jobs within the same company or from one company to another. The UAN number remains the same for you, and it can’t be changed. You can easily reset your UAN number online if you have forgotten it. Here are some ways to recover forgotten UAN numbers online.

  3. Hi, I am a homemaker. I tried all the above methods but it says there isn’t any UAN number with these details. This is in regards to the job that I did 2 years ago.
    Also regarding my job around 15 years ago, there is no UAN number on the payslip, and my mobile number and mail id have changed.
    How can I get both these PF details. Please guide.
    BTW, regarding the job 2 years ago, I had mentioned that I do not have any UAN number while joining as I did not have any previous details.
