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.

The reasons are mainly Retirement, Death in service, Super Annuation, Permant Disablement, Cessation, and Death away from service, if you don’t know the reason then mark it as UNKNOWN

Step 4:- After selecting reason and entering the date we will get the following message

Member Exit Saved Successfully for Approval.

Step 5:- After this go to approvals under MEMBER option in the primary menu and approve the exit of the employee and complete the process of individual employee exit unified EPF portal.

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.

  2. Hi,

    My employer updated wrong DOJ and due to that my DOJ in new organization is earlier than DOE in previous organization. As per reply from EPFO office i need to correct this.
    Kindly suggest me how i can go ahead for correction of this because i already left new organization also. Is there any way i can do myself or i need to contact my recent ex-employer who updated wrong DOJ.

    • Hi Mistry Yogesh Kumar,
      You cannot do it your self, you need to submit PF joint declaration form and your recent ex-employer also should submit a request letter to correct DOJ on their company letterhead. You can collect it and submit it along with your PF joint declaration form to PF office.

  3. Hello Mr.Rajesh,
    My Employer has done the Exit and approved. but They didn’t update the reason for Exit(presently showing Unknown).This is stopping me for an online claim. Is it possible to update it by the employer. Please advice.

      • Dear Rajesh
        Please suggest me about date of exit mentioned by employer is 27 March 2015 through employer but PF and Pension amount up to month May ’17 then after all my interest was updated for 3 years I asked to employer please updated as it is wrong but they are not able to do so. Few days back I applied claim of both PF & Pension and it got rejected. I went to employer but they told we can’t do anything
        What to do next I am not having experience letter because I didn’t serve notice period..
        So, they are not doing favour.
        If I file grievance now with this rejected claim then PF dept. will release both amounts also KYC is OK.
        Any option? I am jobless now i need this amount what can I do now?

        Your Sincerely,

        • Hi Rashi,
          Fill EPF composite claim form Aadhar and write the correct date of exit on that. And ask your employer for a request letter on company letter head to PF office on that they need to mention that they have entered the wrong date of exit and request the PF office to settle your PF amount. Now you or your employer should submit your PF claim form and request letter to PF office.

Shall I get my PF Final withdrawal full and final amount without going to Employer For joint declaration which is really hectic process which I wouldn’t want to move through offline or requesting employer

    Please advice or any other option going through offline

    • Hi Ranjit,
      Without joint declaration form, it is not possible to correct your date of exit. So you need to take the help of your employer for DOE correction.

      • Dear Rajesh,

        As you replied to go through employer help.
        But old staff had resigned 3 +. Years and HR they were not supportive.
        As my last salary was credited in July 2016 was by mistake and they were asking for that amount which I couldn’t have so much of amount to pay now. I requested I will pay you but please help to settle the PF I will pay after pf amount credit in my account.
        But they were not entertaining me any more.

        What should I do now?
        How shall I withdraw my pf.
        I need PF final settlement.
        How shall I overcome in this critical situation.
        Shall I raise grievance immediately or should I claim pf amount with leaving last month pf amount? Till now I did not claim yet please suggest and help me

        • Hi Ranjit, Without DOE you cannot claim your PF amount online, If your KYC like Aadhar and bank account number are linked with your UAN then you can claim your PF amount offline by submitting EPF composite claim form Aadhar without the help of employer. Otherwise, you need to depend on your employer for PF claim.

          • Dear Rajesh,

            As you replied If aadhar and bank are linked with UAN then we can go through Composite form aadhar to be submit offline in PF office without employer. As I had mentioned you earlier my DOE has been wrongly updated by employer with one month difference.
            So, there is no need to go to employer once filled and submitted to PF directly.
            But clear me one thing is there any provision in this composite claim aadhar form to correct the DOE.
            Where shall I get this form and what documents need to be attach for PF final withdrawal.?
            Also, in how many days it will take to receive money in bank account?
            As I told also employer HR are not helpful.
            Shall I raise grievance for this after submitting filled form to PF.
            Please advice and suggest.

          • Hi Rajesh,

            As I told you, date of exit entered by employer in uan one month less (diffrence)
            and pf contributed for one more month as passbook states
            This Composite Claim aadhar offline which you had suggested in case where employer not cooperative does it works also is there any provision to correct DOE in this form?
            Where I will get this form and after filling it we have to submit directly of pf office without employer help also how many days it will take to receive PF final settlement in bank.
            What documents I have to provide at time of submission of composite form?
            As you know, I don’t have releasing letter of company shall I attach pf passbook copy at time of submission.
            Please revert.

          • Hi, Rajesh
            If composite claim aadhar form submitted pf final will get withdraw without employer even though DOE is wrong [1 month difference]
            Waiting for your reply
