How to link Aadhaar with EPF account, know the step-by-step process here


If you have started a job then it is necessary to link your Aadhaar with your EPF account. If you have not yet been able to link Aadhaar with your EPF account even while working, then you can link it easily. In fact, according to Section 142 of the Social Security Code 2020, all employees and unorganized workers must link their Aadhaar card with their EPF account. As an employee, you can do this in several ways.

On the UAN Member e-SEWA page on the EPFO portal

Visit the official website of EPFO

Place your cursor on the Services tab in the top-right corner of your screen and click the For Employees option in the drop-down menu

Click on the Member UAN/Online Services option in the Services section

The UAN Member e-Services page will open in front of you. Log in to your account by entering your UAN number, password, and captcha code. If you do not have your UAN, you can click on the Know Your UAN option in the Important Links section on the same page.

After logging into your account, click on the KYC option in the Manage section

You will be taken to a page where you can link your Aadhaar number with your EPF account

You can also get the link done by visiting the regional EPFO office.
