EPF account is a mistake, so how to correct it online from home

Since the introduction of Universal Account Number (UAN) in 2014, all processes related to EPF have been made easier. UAN is a 12 digit code. Customers must keep their UAN active to rectify mistakes.

New Delhi, Business Desk. The Employee Provident Fund Organization (EPFO), the retirement fund body, allows customers to rectify mistakes made in Employees Provident Fund (EPF) accounts. Users can make any correction in EPFO records like name, date of birth and other details online.

Since the introduction of Universal Account Number (UAN) in 2014, all processes related to EPF have been made easier. UAN is a 12 digit code. Customers must keep their UAN active to rectify mistakes. Apart from this, it is also necessary to have a valid Aadhaar card. The process of updating the PF takes place at two levels, one at the employee level and then the employer.




Know how to improve EPF account

Step 1: Go to the official EPFO website – epfindia.gov.in and log in.

Step 2: Click on Manage and then choose Basic Details.

Step 3: Enter the Aadhaar number.

Step 4: Now update the name, gender, date of birth. Keep in mind that all the information should match with Aadhaar.

Step 5: Once the request is submitted, it will be verified by the employer. Verify request goes to the employer himself.

Explain that many times EPF withdrawal claims are rejected. One reason for the EPF withdrawal claim being rejected is the non-update of the bank account number and IFSC code on the EPFO member portal. Also, claims of the member may be rejected even if the signature of the member is not clear and does not match with the records available in the office.
