Difference Between UAN and Member ID
Universal Account Number
The universal account number or UAN is a number that is unique for each and every member who is a member/subscriber of Employees Provident Fund Organisation or EPFO, This UAN was allotted to every employee who was contributing to EPF.
UAN is a single formula that can make your work easy because Provident Funds or Member Id’s will be attached to UAN so one can maintain all Member Ids.
The usual procedure is that whenever a member changes his/her organisation and joined a new one and started contributing to EPF, All the process will end up with a new Member ID.
So, the every new Member ID must be linked to UAN. As we told you this is a unique number so the member can only have a single UAN number.
Having two UAN number is not acceptable but in some cases or procedural mistakes/errors or sometimes due to the fault of an employee, two or more UAN numbers allotted to a single employee in certain cases.
Our article on How To Merge or Deactivate 2 UAN Number will tell you the complete process of merging or deactivation two UAN Numbers.
EPF Member ID
The Employees Provident Fund Organisation or EPFO gives the Member Identification Number or Member Id for every employee in order to allow the employer so he/she can submit the EPS & EPF contribution for the employee.
On the behalf of an employee, every month the employer submits the PF money to the Employees Provident Fund Organisation.
This includes both the employer contribution, employee contribution, EPS (Employee Pension Scheme).
Usually, whenever the employee changes his/her organisation and started working under a new employer, The new employer will have to open a new account number for him in Employees Provident Fund Organisation.
So every time an employee changes their job they end up with a new member ID as it will be allotted to him.
The format of Member ID or PF Account Number is given below. The PF Account Number did not have an Extension code.
Example No. 1: Let’s imagine a guy with name Laxman and he is under an organisation somewhere in Chandigarh and the code he’ll have will be as PB/CHD/123456/321.
Example No. 2 (with extension code):
EPFO Office Code/Establishment Code/Extension/Account Number
