Under this facility, subscribers of the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) can merge as many as 10 previous accounts with their UAN at one go. Currently, the EPFO subscribers are required to file separate transfer claims online using UAN on the EPFO's UAN portal. But to avail of the facility, they are required to activate their UAN that is seeded with bank accounts and other details such as Aadhaar and PAN.
Those subscribers without UAN activation can also do so online through the transfer claim portal facility of the EPFO. A senior official said the EPFO has made it easy with this facility with an objective of having "one employee, one EPF account".
The EPFO, according to the official, has already issued direction to its over 120 offices earlier this week to use this service and ensure multiple accounts are consolidated as early as possible.
After validating credentials of the members, the EPFO would allow them to register their previous EPF account numbers for consolidation with the current UAN. The facility can be accessed on the EPFO website at the 'Employees' Corner'.
