Accepted by Employer Pending at Field Office: What Does It Mean?

EPF members who have recently applied for modification or correction of basic details at UAN member portal can find this status that accepted by employer pending at field office. The reason for getting this message is your basic details modification request was accepted by your employer, but it is pending at PF field office. Once it is approved by the EPF field officer then the details of EPF members will be corrected. The second case is during PF transfer.

While applying for PF transfer we need to choose either previous employer or present employer to approve it. So first your employer will approve your PF transfer request, after that your PF transfer request has to be approved by your PF office. In that case, also you will find this message.

Once your employer approves your basic details modification request in their employer PF portal then your request will be sent to your regional EPF office. Here it will take 10-15 days to approve your basic details request. In the meantime, you will get the status of your request as Accepted by Employer Pending at Field Office.

If everything is fine then the field officer will approve your request, if is there any further information or physical documents are required then your request will be rejected by the PF field officer. So, in general, it will take 15-30 days to complete the process of correction of EPF details.

You can check whether your details are corrected or not by observing your EPF details in the member profile section of your UAN member portal.

    • Hi Asif,
      Generally, it will take a maximum of 30 days for claim settlement, so it is better to wait if the status don’t change even after 30 days then raise a grievance at the PF portal.

        Now I want to withdraw 75 % amount of the total amount in both pf accounts.
        Due to corona virus EPFO has allowed to withdraw 75% amount or 3 months salary. I have one UAN no. But amount in 2 pf accounts. Is it possible to withdraw?

        • You can withdraw PF advance from your second PF account, it is not possible to withdraw your PF amount from both PF accounts before transfer.

  8. Hi Rajesh,
    My UAN name and Aadhar name is same in EPFO portal.

    I have not updated my PAN in EPFO portal.

    In AADHAR Card: My surname is coming before my name
    In UAN Portal: My surname is coming before my name
    but In PAN card: My surname is coming after my name.

    Hence i am not able to update my PAN in portal.

    If i have not updated my PAN, Please provide me the % of TDS will be deducted if amount is morethan 1lakh.

    • Hi,
      I did have faced the same issue while adding the adhaar card to my UAN account as the name in adhaar card is different than the PAN card and UAN account.
      As I wanted my name as per my PAN card, hence I updated my adhaar card details and then added it to the UAN account, and then the kyc get approved successfully.

      As you wanted the details as per your adhaar card, then I would suggest you to update the name in your pan card and then add the kyc in UAN. It will be verified successfully.
