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.
