The EPFO site is completely down on weekends and Saturdays, and its latest UAN portal is a curse. It doesn’t even work on Sundays and Saturdays! Read on to find out why it’s a complete failure and how to fix it. If you’re having trouble with the EPFO’s UAN portal, try Opera. It’s a better browser than Chrome, but it’s still not working for everyone!
EPFO’s latest UAN portal is a curse
The recent launch of the EPFO’s latest UAN portal has left a sour taste in the mouths of many PF members. Although the old EPFO UAN portal was working well, it belonged to the previous government and was therefore allergic to the new regime. This new portal, which was launched to facilitate the registration of 5.5 crore PF members, has many flaws. First of all, the KYC data of the members has not been migrated to the new portal and hence, the PF department always asks the employees to contact their employer to verify their details.
Secondly, it is very difficult to update KYC details without having a UAN. UAN is an employee’s unique number, and thus helps EPFO gather the information about the members of their EPF in one place. Once the employee registers with EPFO, updating the KYC becomes easy. The portal allows the employee to download his passbook and UAN card from their account and update it online.
Moreover, PF members can only register if they have a mobile number. To make sure that you have a mobile number, enter your UAN and verify it. If you don’t have one, you can use your Aadhar or PAN. If you don’t have a mobile number, register a new one. Once you’ve verified that the number is valid, the portal will send an OTP to your registered mobile. Once the OTP is validated, you can then proceed to reset your password.
Secondly, UAN is a prickly system. You can’t activate UAN by SMS. But you can do it through the Umang App, which is available on the google play store. And finally, if you’re not satisfied with the way your UAN works, you can change your date of birth. If you don’t like the way your date of birth is recorded with EPFO, you can change it. However, you must make sure it’s the same as your other ID documents.
How to change mobile number in UAN account
If you have been looking for a way to change the mobile number in your UAN account but have been unable to do so, there are several methods available. First of all, you should ensure that you have the correct mobile number. If you’ve been unable to log in for a few days or more, it’s possible that your UAN account has gone offline. To solve this problem, follow the instructions below.
To change the mobile number, log in to your UAN account and enter your UAN number and password. From there, select Manage. This will take you to the contact details section. Click the checkbox next to “Change Mobile Number” and click the Get Authorization Pin button. You will receive an OTP to your mobile phone. Once you’ve verified your mobile number, you can now change your UAN account password and update your profile information.
If you’re unable to log in to your UAN account portal, call the help desk for further assistance. The help desk is open Monday to Friday from 9:15am to 5pm and can assist you with the process of changing your mobile number. Depending on your specific issue, they may take up to a week to respond to your query. Alternatively, you can fill out the form online. If your UAN account portal has been down for more than a week, call the help desk to discuss the issue further.
If you’ve been unable to log in for a week, or haven’t logged in at all, you should contact your employer and request for a new member ID. This new member ID will be linked to your UAN. Your employer may also require the Know Your Customer (KYC) documents to log into the portal. The UAN account portal will ask you for your UAN, mobile number, and password.
EPFO site is not working on Saturdays and Sundays
If you are a member of the EPFO but cannot access its website on Saturdays or Sundays, you are not alone. Hundreds of members like you are also suffering from the same problem. You may have tried Chrome, Firefox, and Safari to open the EPFO website, but none of them worked. The reason for this is that the EPFO portal is experiencing a high volume of traffic. Because of this, the site is not optimized for mobile devices and may take long to load.
This is because of the high traffic during office hours. For instance, people are attempting to update their PF KYC details, generate a UAN number, or make an EPF contribution payment on the same day. This causes the website to experience high load times and slows down its servers. Users may also experience the problem on weekends or if the servers are down. To get a solution to this problem, you can try to contact the EPFO IS Division.
If you have an EPF account, you may have questions about how the organization works and how it handles complaints. The EPFO has a robust grievance management system to ensure that no user’s concern goes unanswered. There are several online and offline platforms to report complaints and receive resolutions. The official grievance management system, EPFiGMS, allows EPF account holders to lodge a complaint about withdrawals and transfers. This website is accessible only to EPF account holders.
If you find yourself in a crisis situation, you should make use of the money in your Provident Fund. You must have a linked and activated UAN number to qualify for the advance. Your mobile number must be working. To claim the advance, you must activate your UAN number, link it with your bank account, and have a working mobile phone. Once you have completed the required information, go to the EPFO website and login with your UAN and one-time password. Once you have done this, click the ‘Online Services’ tab. You can then choose Claim (Form-31) or 10C from the dropdown menu.
Opera is a better browser
The interface of Opera is similar to that of Chrome and Edge but with cleaner, flatter lines and fewer unnecessary icons. Like Chrome, Opera uses Chromium as its base. There is only one menu, the Menu button, which acts like a simplified File menu. If you maximize the window, this button blends into the title bar and takes up little space. The menu contains everything you need to navigate.
The Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) is the largest social security organization in the world. To access the EPFO portal, you must have Java installed on your computer. The latest version of Java is required. Opera is a better browser for EPFO portals. It supports a variety of operating systems, offers great design, and is cross-platform. It is easy to migrate data from one browser to another.
Opera has several useful features that make browsing faster. Opera Turbo compresses data and works both on desktop and mobile. Built-in mouse gestures help you to navigate through a website faster. Finally, Opera offers many useful extensions, including those from Google Chrome. For example, you can use the mouse gestures in Opera to easily transfer files and save time. This makes Opera a better browser for UAN portals.
Opera has also announced a Web 3-ready browser for Windows, Mac, and Android. This browser includes a built-in wallet for cryptocurrencies and other non-traditional tokens. Opera’s latest development is aimed at making web3 services frictionless. This new browser also features a built-in non-custodial wallet for easy crypto management. You can find more information on the Opera Crypto Browser Project.
How to transfer PF balance online via UAN
To transfer your PF balance online, you need to first activate your UAN account and verify your mobile number. If you’re joining a new company, you’ll also need to verify your employer’s bank account. You’ll also need to enter the EPF account numbers for both your previous and current employers into the database. Once you’ve entered these details, you can complete the transfer process and receive your PF amount online.
When the time comes to transfer your PF balance, you need to be aware that the money you transfer will be taxable if you withdraw it from your previous employer. The good news is that you can do this online using the UAN portal. You’ll need to fill in as much information as possible, as you’ll need to sign the form and send it in a ten-day period. Your previous and new employers will also need to approve the transfer to be processed successfully.
Next, you’ll need to log into your EPFO account using your UAN and password. You’ll need to enter your personal details, as well as the PF account numbers you used in your previous employment. Select the previous employer, and then enter the member ID and password you received from that previous employer. When you’re done, you’ll receive a tracking ID. This tracking ID will allow you to track the status of your transfer.
You can transfer your PF account online if you have a UAN number from your previous employer. You’ll also need the details of your current employer to transfer your PF. If you’re currently working, you can transfer your PF balance online if you’ve already registered for Aadhar. If you’re looking to transfer your account to another employer, you’ll need your UAN and mobile number. You can also use the UAN portal to change your address, and transfer your money.
