The Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has credited the EPF or PF interest rate for the FY 2020-21. EPFO members can check their PF interest credit in its EPF or PF account by checking their EPF balance or PF balance. However, one can check one's EPF or PF balance only when it has its Universal Account Number (UAN). However, those who don't have the UAN, they can also do the EPF balance check online by simply finding their UAN online by logging in at the official EPFO website — epfindia.gov.in.
What is UAN?
The concept behind UAN is to have one account number for one EPFO subscriber, irrespective of the number of employers that the subscriber changes. So, once you get a UAN from the EPFO, it will remain the same in all your future jobs in organisations that are covered under the EPF scheme. At the time of changing jobs, you just need to share your UAN with the new employer for them to get your previous balance transferred to the new account.
While the UAN number will remain the same, EPFO will give you a new member ID or an EPF account for every employer, which will be employer-specific.
