  5. Hi

    My claim rejected with below reason
    “”The claim form rejected with the remarks: Authorized officer’s signature differs. ”

    What does it indicates..? is it because of issue with digital signature or employer signature..?

    Now i am trying to use online claim portal and for that , i had linked aadhar with UAN , but it is still not refelcted in my UAN portal , any idea how many days more it will take ..?

    • Hi Deepak,
      In majority cases, it will be happened due to the expiry of digital signature validity. Maybe your employer has not renewed their digital signature. In order to apply online PF withdrawal your KYC have to be approved by digital signature of your employer. So please enquire your employer about the validity of their digital signature.

  6. I would like to know about father name difference, that will joint declaration forms duly attested along with supporting documents be considered by them??? as they are asking to update KYC As per desired name but we can’t update KYC until they rectify member name at their official record.


    • @ Imran
      Yes, they will consider, but along with joint declaration form, you have to submit a letter. Here there is no need to rectify the name in PF portal because he is not continuing his service and it may take maximum 7-10 days to approve your digital signature.

  7. dear sir,

    please help me in below matter connected with epf withdrawal

    as per rejection letter, remark is : father name differ , PL. UAN KYC UPDATE with desire name.

    NOW in that case, we have digital signature of employer , who is already expired. we have applied for renewal. and you know that after registration , letter sent to epfo will take much time to be approved. till then we can’t update/approve KYC.

    also father name differ means. say correct name is RAYSINH and in epfo name is HAYSINH . for that we have sent Joint declaration letter. though claim is rejected. please guide.

    so in that case what to do please guide us.

    • Hi Imran,
      KYC approval is not mandatory to apply for PF withdrawal, but you must have a valid digital signature so that EPFO officials will know about PF authority in your company. If your digital signature is already in renewal process then submit a letter on your company letter head about his father’s name difference and request EPF to release his PF claim amount.
