EPFO launches online facility to merge PF accounts

The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has launched an online facility to merge Provident Fund (PF) accounts. This move will help employees save their PF amount and use it during difficult times. It is essential to merge PF accounts to ensure that funds deposited during employment in old companies are added to the new PF account.

How to merge PF accounts online?

To merge PF accounts online, employees must visit the official website of EPFO and click on Services. Then, they need to click on One Employee One EPF Account and enter their registered mobile number, UAN, and existing member ID. After filling in the complete details, an OTP will be generated for authentication, which will be sent to the registered mobile number.

Once the OTP number is entered, the old account details will appear, and the employee needs to fill in the PF account number and click on the submit button. After verification, the account will be merged in a few days.

Importance of UAN

It is essential to know the Universal Account Number (UAN) to avail any facility related to EPF online. Employees must activate their UAN to merge their PF accounts. If employees do not know their UAN, they can find it online by visiting the EPFO website and filling in their registered mobile number and captcha code.

It is crucial to merge PF accounts to ensure that the total amount is visible in a single account. This move will help employees manage their funds easily and facilitate PF withdrawals during emergencies.
