Steps to Upload KYC in EPF UAN

Ever since the Universal Account Number was introduced in 2014, all processes associated with Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) have become easier and quicker. 

You will need the UAN to upload your KYC documents on the EPFO. Documents can be uploaded by linking the UAN with the Aadhaar. While it is not mandatory to upload one’s KYC document, having your KYC details embedded in the EPF UAN portal makes processes requiring verification faster.
