    I upadate my kyc form it showing this reason Pan verfication failed. (Name against UAN does not match with the NAME in Income Tax Department) Invalid Gender details for AADHAAR authentication. what is the problem I cant understand plz help me plz reply asap

    • Hi Yashodha,
      It happens when your gender details were not updated in your UAN portal, it has to be done by your employer. So please ask your employer to update gender details then you will able to update your PAN.
      But remember even though the names present on PAN and UAN portal matches still in some cases they are not able to link their UAN with PAN, it is a problem with EPF website, in that case, it is better to claim your PF amount offline.

  11. Hi,
    I have left the Organization on 2012 after that I moved to abroad hence no PF contribution from my side.
    Unfortunately I haven’t closed my PF.
    Now I would like to close the PF, hence contacted my Previous Employer, they have asked me to create the UAN.
    Then I did create my own.
    But, my previous employer updated me that my case is typical that i have left the orgnisation before 2014 .
    So i need to submit below documents to the employer
    Form 10C, Form 19, Form 15G, along with PAN copy, Adhar Copy and Original cancelled cheque leaf.
    After receiving these documents, still they are telling me that closure should be by online.
    When I try to do so in the unified portal, i’m getting this error message
    “”this functionality will be available once your uan is linked to any establishment”
    Could you please help me how to proceed furhter closing my PF?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi Anand,
      It is not correct that claims are not getting settle in offline. In your case online claim won’t work, so you have to ask your employer to submit those documents to PF office.

      • Thanks Rajesh,

        But still my employer saying that I have to link my PF with UAN by myself.
        Is it possible an employee can link his PF account to his UAN by his own?
        I have no clue, how to proceed further with my case. Your input would be of great help to proceed further.
        Thanks in advance.

        • Hi Anand,
          It is not possible to link your present UAN with your previous PF account number. In order to withdraw your PF amount, you need to fill PF form 19 and 10 c and write your PF account number on that form and submit it to PF office. But here your employer needs to submit a request letter on their company letterhead to your regional EPF office to settle your claim by drafting the above issue.

  12. My employer is not able to update my KYC. I have requested to upadte my KYC using my UAN and my request of approval KYC is showing in my UAN profile but this request is not showing to my employer UAN profile. What to do?

    • Hi Surendra Kumar,
      Then ask your employer to update your KYC details by clicking on member profile in their employer PF portal, so that they can directly link your KYC with UAN.

  13. i tried adding the bank details in my login. it says “This functionality will be available, once your UAN is linked to any establishment.”.

  14. Hi Rajesh – My employer had approved my bak account number twice, but still getting this error when I try to claim – “Please update your latest Bank account no. and valid IFSC details through your employer/Unified Portal”.

I absconded 1year back and into business now can u let me know whether i will be able to submit pf online or do i need to visit epfo office

    • Hi Shailendra,
      Maybe your previous employer has updated your exit date in PF portal, so you can’t able to update KYC now. In order to claim your PF amount, you have to submit PF composite claim form non aadhar to your previous employer.

  16. Hi Sir,
    Now I’m submitted PF online Withdrawal (From 19).
    how many working days taken for approval my PF and i have get money

  17. All the three mandatory KYC docs approved by my employer and showing under “Digitally Approved KYC”

    My last working day was 2nd Jana 2018. But still my employer didn’t update my last working in UAN portal.

    Since I’m setting in abroad and need of immediate withdrawal of PF money.

    Please suggest should I contact my employer to update my last working day ???

    • Hi DJ,
      Yes, you can contact your employer, it will take less than 2 minutes to update your exit date in PF portal. But you can able to withdraw your PF amount only after 2 months form your last working date i.e after 2 March 2018.

  18. My PAN and BAnk account details are approved by the employer. They are shown as approved in Manage KYC tab. My aadhar is also verified and seeded. However, when I click on Claim PF, it says the following: “Please update your latest Bank account no. and valid IFSC details through your employer/Unified Portal”. Can you tell me why this is happening?

    • Hi Anuj,
      Sometimes it happens due to the technical problems with PF websites, you can raise a grievance at PF portal or you can also claim your PF amount offline by submitting EPF composite claim form Aadhar, this form doesn’t require your employer attestation.

  19. Hi Sir,

    I’m Jomson K G my PF Account name and Pan card name is same. but i can’t update Pan in KYC document showing name not matching error. Please help

    • Hi Jomson KG,
      It is a technical issue with PF website, still there are so many employees are facing the same problem. Once we get the solution then we will update the details.
