How to check if UAN is linked with Aadhaar number : Linking EPF with Aadhaar mandatory now

The deadline to link your Universal Account Number (UAN) with your Aadhaar was August 31, 2021. If it has not been done then your employer won't be able to make monthly contributions to your Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) account. Further, you will not be able to make a withdrawal from your EPF account either.

This is because the government has made it mandatory for UAN to be linked with Aadhaar so that employers are able to file Employee Cum Return (ECR) challan and deposit the money into your EPF account. The government announced this via section 142 of the Code on Social Security, 2020 with effect from May 3, 2021, through a gazette notification dated April 30, 2021.

How to check if your UAN is linked to Aadhaar

If you are not sure if your UAN is linked to your Aadhaar, then follow the steps below to check:

Step 1: Visit the member sewa portal: https://unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/memberinterface/

Step 2: Login to your account by entering your UAN and password.

Step 3: Once logged in successfully, select 'KYC' option under the 'Manage' tab.

On the screen check under the verified documents tab, if your Aadhaar number is shown and approved, then it means that your UAN is linked with Aadhaar.

However, if the Aadhaar number is not shown under the verified documents tab, then you will be required to link your UAN with Aadhaar.

How to link your UAN with Aadhaar

There are four ways to link UAN with Aadhaar: (a) On the Member Sewa portal, (b) Using Umang App, (c) Using OTP verification on the e-KYC Portal of EPFO and (d) Using biometric credentials on the e-KYC portal of EPFO.

Here is the process of linking UAN with Aadhaar on the Member Sewa portal.

Step 1: Log in to the Member Sewa portal on https://unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/.

Step 2: Select the 'KYC' option under the 'Manage' tab.

Step 3: Select 'Aadhaar' option to add a KYC document.

Step 4: The screen will show your Name as per Aadhaar. You will be required to enter the Aadhaar number. If you do not want to share your Aadhaar number, then you can also enter Virtual ID number as well.

You will be required to provide the consent for Aadhaar based authentication for the purpose of linking UAN with Aadhaar.

Step 5: Click on the 'Save' button. Once it is saved, it will be shown under 'pending KYC'. Your employer will be required to approve so that your UAN will be linked with Aadhaar. Once approved by your employer, it needs to be approved by the EPFO as well for the linking process to be completed.
