    NEW DELHI: Retirement fund body EPFO has opened a new facility for its over 4.5 crore members that will allow consolidation or merger of their multiple PF accounts with the current universal portable account number (UAN).

    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.

    The subscribers will have to provide their current activated UAN, member ID (identification) and mobile number registered at the UAN portal.

    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'.

    Totally Rubbish. They are lying. Even my Old and New Epf Accounts are link with one UAN. I gave them request at their Dwarka branch New Delhi in July 2017 but no response. I wrote them. No response. Olny asked to contact that office but they say under processing but till now no response
    I Try to transfer online. Unable to do so due to flaw in their website. I wrote them along with errors screenshot but no response.
    If They cannot handle it why do not they outsource it to private Company Like Passport.

    In spite of my numerous written and telephonic requests my former employer Jaypee Vidya Mandir Tomri PO BEHIRA Bulandshahar is not updating EXIT date in my EPF account. I requested the Regional Officer and Central PF commissioner to update my Exit date and initiate action against my former employer who is harassing me. The officers of EPF Deptt has not taken any action on my repeated complaints.
    The officers of EPF Deptt is bent on tarnishing the image of BJP Govt.
