How to Activate Universal Account Number (UAN) online & login to the EPFO website using UAN?

UAN or Universal Account Number is very essential to access your pf records & your savings. Before Activating your UAN you have to know about what is UAN & how to find your UAN & Member ID by Clicking the link here.

Follow the steps to activate UAN:-

Step 1:-Go to the official page of the EPFO member portal.Here

Step 2:- Click on Active UAN.

Step 3:- On this page you just fill the details in the corresponding field.

  • Enter your UAN.
  • Name as per your payslip or Aadhaar or pan card.
  • Date of Birth.
  • Mobile Number.
  • Email Id. ( Not very important/optional)
  • Enter Captcha.

After filling the correct details you have to click on “Get Authorization Pin”.You will redirect to the next page of the EPFO website. At that time you will receive an OTP to your registered mobile no. 

Click on “I Agree” checkmark and enter the OTP as received on your mobile number. Finally, click on “Validate OTP to activate UAN”.

You will now receive an SMS on your mobile number from the “EPFOHO ” SMS service. That SMS will contain your password with your UAN.

You always have to remember your UAN & Password to access the login portal. For the first time, the password you received is a random combination of numbers,alpha-bates with upper & lower case and special characters. (example:-EpawmS%#439). This is very difficult to remember. 

           So there is a solution to this problem for making an easy password to remember, is to “forget Password”.

So finally you got your UAN activation. Now you have your password to access the EPFO portal to get the benefits of EPFO i.e. update KYC, nominee details, passbook details, pf Transfer & withdrawal, etc.
That’s all my friends about how to Activate your UAN Or Universal Account Number. All the steps I explain are very easy & it takes very little time to complete.
