The Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), established in 1952 and operating under India's Ministry of Labor and Employment, is the world's largest social security institution. It offers crucial security benefits like pensions and insurance to private sector employees in India.

For accessing these provident fund services, employees must first set up an EPF account, receiving a unique 12-digit Universal Account Number (UAN). This UAN enables access to their EPFO account for various critical operations. This article aims to provide a comprehensive guide on transferring your EPF account, simplifying the process for you.
