How to Change the Date of Joining in EPF by Employer Online

Changing the date of joining online by both employer and employee is not possible. If by mistake employer updates the wrong date of exit then they need to submit PF joint declaration form to their PF regional office along with a request letter on the company letterhead.

EPF members can correct their name, date of birth, and gender details only online by using their UAN number.

To correct the date of joining or date of exit they should fill below PF joint declaration form ( PF date of joining change form)

  1. Sir,
    I am working in APSRTC as a Conductor. Actually I joined in the corporation on 10.03.2000 as a casual Conductor. My PF contribution is started with this month. But I regularized as a conductor on 05.10.2007. In our PF trust the corporation is showing 05.10.2007 as date of joining. Actually I joined in 2000, they are showing in 2007. Why? is there any possible to change the date of joining as appointed date. What is actual rule for joining date? Please give reply.

    • The date on which your first PF contribution was made is your joining date.
      If your PF passbook shows PF contribution since 10/03/2000 then that will be your joining date.
      You can correct date of joining by submitting PF joint declaration form to the PF office.

I did not received any salary from company A nor any PF in my account. Company A dropped me an email on 4th Dec, 2019 mentioned my absence and they marked my DOE for 5th Dec, 2019.
