# View Tab
You can view your complete profile details like UAN number, name, date of birth and also contact details. In service details, you can view the all EPF number details linked under that UAN (including whether you are eligible for pension or not).
# Manage Tab
Here you can change your contact details like email and mobile number. Remember that they send you the authorization PIN before the data get updated. Also, you can check the KYC status related to UAN. This includes the data like the expiry date of documents you submitted for KYC purpose.

In my view, this is the big move for all UAN holders to know about their EPF details. However, the biggest hurdle of this portal is that it will be down for some time. Hence, it may irk many of us.
I am not sure why EPFO not taking this as a serious issue and manage the portal like Indian Railway’s IRCTC.
