EPFO Account Holders: Good News! UAN-Aadhaar linking deadline extended, now you will be able to link till December 31, know how

The Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has extended the deadline for linking EPF account with Aadhaar to December 31. Earlier its last date was 31 August. EPFO has given this information through social media.

Money can stop if you do not link

If you do not link EPFO and Aadhaar number by December 31, then the contribution coming from the company in your account will be stopped. Apart from this, you may also face trouble in withdrawing money from the EPF account. If the account of the EPF account holder is not linked with Aadhaar, then they will not be able to use the services of EPFO.

This is its process

  • First you go to the EPFO ​​portal
  • Login to your account using UAN and Password.
  • Click on the KYC option in the “Manage” section.
  • On the page that opens, you can see several documents to be linked with your EPF account.
  • Select the Aadhar option and click on save by typing your Aadhar number and your name on the Aadhar card.
  • The information provided by you will be secured, your Aadhaar will be verified with the data of UIDAI.
  • Once your KYC documents are correct, your Aadhaar will be linked to your EPF account and you will get “Verify” written in front of your Aadhaar details.

Both employees and employers put money in EPF account

Under the EPFO ​​Act, 12% of the basic salary plus DA of the employee goes to the EPF account. So at the same time, the employer (company) also contributes 12% of the basic salary plus DA of the employee. Out of the 12% contribution of the company, 3.67% goes to the employee’s PF account and the remaining 8.33% goes to the employee pension scheme. The EPF account is getting 8.50% interest annually.

What is the number?

As soon as the employee is registered with the Provident Fund Organization (EPFO), the employee becomes a member of this organization and along with it he is also issued a 12 digit UAN (Universal Account Number). With the help of this number, the facilities of EPFO ​​can be used online. With the help of UAN number, an employee can not only see his PF account passbook online, but he can also check his PF (Provident Fund) balance online.
