How to Solve PAN Verification Failed Error in UAN Portal (99% Works)

Getting the following errors that PAN verification failed. (name against UAN does not match with the name in income tax department) & error while PAN authentication. could not send message have become very common for EPF members when they are trying to link their PAN number with their UAN number. Here we have a solution for EPF PAN verification failed error.

But before knowing about the solution we should know why we need to link our PAN with UAN. Because when we are claiming a PF amount of more than 50000 Rs in below 5 yrs of service then 34.6% tax will deduct from our claim amount, In order to avoid this tax deduction we need to link our PAN with UAN number.

Reasons for EPF PAN Verification Failed Error

There are Two main reasons because of them we are not able to link our PAN with UAN, they are

i) The mismatch of names present in PAN card and PF portal. If your name printed on PAN card (i.e income tax department) is not matching with the name in PF portal then you are not able to link your PAN with UAN. To solve this issue you need to correct the incorrect name either in PF portal or PAN card.

You can correct your name in PF portal either by submitting PF joint declaration form to PF office or you can also correct your name online at UAN portal. To correct your name on PAN card read this article on guidelines to correct name on PAN card.

ii) The second and mostly faced reason for not linking PAN with UAN is the problem with EPFO website. There is no proper integration between income tax website and PF portal. So even though the names present on income tax database and PF portal match but still we are not able to link our PAN with UAN number. Here we have a solution for this problem.

  4. Hi,
    My name in aadhar and UAN is same, my name in PAN is different. My aadhar is verified in UAN portal. I’m unable to add PAN number in UAN portal. So what should I do?

  5. Hi Sir,
    My husband’s name in Pan card and UAN portal is different.. Pan has been linked but verification failed. Already made some partial PF withdrawals.. no issues on that.. Now he has left job and it’s been 6 months now.. The PF balance is greater than 500000.. If we opt for final PF withdrawal, do they deduct the TDS amount? Because you mentioned like TDS will be deducted if the withdrawal amount is more than 50000 and service is less than 5 yrs… But in our case it’s more than 5 lakhs and service crossed 10 yrs. My question is whether Tds will be deducted because of pan verification failure?
    Thanks in advance..

      You have to correct the wrong Date of Birth. If it is wrong in UAN then you can correct it at UAN portal or if it is wrong on PAN card then you need to correct it on PAN, but this process will take maximum 30 days.

  12. Hey Thanks for the detail information.

    I had a similar issue and just raised a Grievance as per your suggestion.

    Hoping this will resolve the issue.

    Thanks in advance!

  13. This is the response i received after raising a grievance.
    As the authentication of PAN details are done online as per available database, the linking is not possible of there being any error or mismatch. In wake of the same the member is advised to get the name corrected (in PAN/EPFO database) and thereafter try the linking process,whereas the pan and epfo database already matched.
    I cant understand what to do next.
    Please help

  14. I got the following response – “Please check/verify the particulars with income tax database”. What should I do now?

  15. jithin..redo it again and it will hppens if u take a long time to fill in the details and submit
