Two UAN Creations



Last month I have activated my UAN and done my KYC i.e., Aadhar Number. It was approved by my employer and the EPFO department.

On this month 7th January, 2019 I have joined another company. I didn’t remember my UAN and password, it was not present in my Payslip too or with my previous company.

So, I requested the new employer to generate new UAN.

Is it possible for my new employer to generate new UAN as I have done my KYC using PAN Card and Aadhar earlier, if the new UAN was created shall I merge the two UAN’s in future.

Thank you in advance.
