How to Update / Correct Date of Exit in EPF Account

EPF members whose date of exit is not available are not able to withdraw their PF amount online at UAN member portal. Date of joining and date of exit are two important things that every PF officer will check when the employee went to withdraw PF amount. So marking employee exit date is very important for an employer to make a smooth transaction between employee and EPFO.

How to update date of exit in EPF account

Step 1:- There are two ways to enter exit dates of the employee in employee provident fund organization. The first one is by bulk exit method and the other one is by doing individual exit in unified EPF employer portal. For this employer needs to login to employer PF portal.

Step 2:- After successful login, click on a member in the primary menu and select profile. Then employer redirected to another page, which asks for UAN number or PF account number of the employee. Here we need to enter the UAN number or member id of the employee to whom we want to mark exit.

Step 4:- Once we enter the details the detail of that particular employee will appear on the screen, there we will find three options, they are profile, kyc and mark exit. Now our aim is to mark EXIT. So click on exit and enter  the reason for exit and exit date of the eployee and click on save.

How to correct / change date of exit in PF

Sometimes employers may mark the wrong date of exit for EPF members. In this case, both employee and employer are not able to correct the date of exit online.

In order to correct or change the incorrect date of exit, EPF member needs to submit PF joint declaration form to their regional EPF office.

PF joint declaration form

Along with PF joint declaration form employer need to write a request letter to the regional PF office to correct the date of exit of the employee. Once employee or employer submit these Two then within 30 days the DOE of the employee in PF will be corrected.

If you don’t want to wait until the correction of DOE and are you in hurry to claim PF amount then submit above Two letters along with your PF claim forms.

  1. Hi Sir I have the issue of overlapping dates of DOE AND DOJ. My employer(Tech Mahindra ) has denied to correct it from their end. EPFO Office is also not providing any solution to this problem , Kindly help me to solve this issue ASAP.

    • You have to visit your EPF Office along with the joint declaration form and a clarification letter stating the reason for service overlap.
      Now based upon your reason either they solve the issue or contact your employer for any further clarification.

  4. I worked as Asst. Professor-Senior in the department of ICT, Manipal Institution of Technology (MIT), Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE), Manipal, Udupi, Karnataka from 12 July 2012 to 9 October 2021 (9 yrs, almost 3 months). I took loss of pay along with No Objection Certificate from MIT, MAHE to work with ABC, as a FIXED-TERM contractual employee. Around two months later, i.e., on 27 December 2021, I resigned my position from MIT and now continuing as permanent employee at ABC . I have not received any PF money when I was in loss of pay at MIT, rather I was getting PF money from ABC.
    During my online PF transfer, I am facing a problem related to reliving date from MAHE. So, as recommended by PF office I submitted Form10 and Joint Declaration to MAHE but MAHE is refusing to sign this. Kindly help me in resolving this issue.

    • If they are not supporting, better register a complaint on EPF grievance portal.
      They will contact your employer on behalf of you.

    • Due to overlapping of your DOJ and DOE you cannot transfer your PF online.
      You have to apply for offline PF transfer by submitting form 13 (or) you can also correct the wrong date of exit by submitting PF joint declaration form to the PF office.

  6. Hi,

    Last year, I resigned from a company on 31st Aug’22 and joined the second company on 1st Sep’22. but the experience/relieving letter of the first company shows DOE as 1st Sep’22, creating a dual employment case in background verification for the new company For the past 15 days, I’ve been in continuous touch with HR to get my DOE updated on the EPFO portal and provide me the updated relieving letter as my last working date was 31st Aug’22 but now, they’ve refused to cooperate as it’s been 10 months and the account has been settled with all statutory departments. Without the updated DOE on the EPFO portal and relieving/experience letter, the new company is not proceeding with my application. But it is a matter of 1 day only. Are there any other alternatives so that background verification can happen smoothly

    Please suggest.
