  20. Hi, myself swetha after how many days i ll get UAN r is there any other method to find pf without UAN.

  21. Hi Swetha,
    Are u working in any private firm or govt. organization?If yes then your employer will provide you the UAN number.If no then you have to apply for UAN number individually.Kindly call on 1800118005 on any Working day between 7 AM to 8 PM .They may provide you all the details.
    I think there are no any other ways to know your PF details.

  22. No need to login to epf website. Just download EPFO app from google play store. Enter your UAN number and mobile number. It displays your epf balance without any username & passwords.
