PF Joint Declaration Form FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Can we submit joint declaration form online

No, there is no option to submit a Joint declaration form online, you need to submit the hard copy of the filled PF joint declaration form offline directly to your regional PF office. But as I said earlier you can correct some details online at the UAN portal like your name and date of birth by using your aadhar details.

How to Check PF Joint Declaration Form Status

EPF members who have applied for EPF corrections can check the status of their PF joint declaration form by observing their online PF passbook or UAN member portal profile.

How Much Time Will Take for Correction / Updation of Details in EPF

In most cases, it will take a maximum of 30 days for correction of your personal details like your name, DOB, DOE, father name or husband name in the PF portal.

What to Do If Details Not Update Even After Submitting PF Joint Declaration

If 30 days completed and still if your details don’t change, then raise a grievance at PF portal. So that you can know why your details are not corrected. Once you know the reason then you can solve your problem. In most cases, the reason for not correcting EPF details is not submitting valid supporting documents. So always submit a valid proof for the correction of your details in PF portal.

Can I use EPF Joint Declaration form for EPF PAN Error

If your name on PAN is correct and name in PF portal is wrong then you need to correct your name in PF portal either in online or by submitting PF joint declaration form. After name correction, you can link your PAN with your UAN number.

What to Do If the Employer is Not Signing PF Joint Declaration Form

You can correct your basic details like your name, dob, Aadhar number, father name online at UAN portal, but for this also you need your employer approval. So without an employer, it is not possible to correct your details. If your employer is not signing PF joint declaration form or not cooperating with you then you can give a complaint about your employer at the EPF grievance portal.

      • This is not possible online to make a correction on employee exit date. The EPFO Website says “CONTACT YOUR EMPLOYER”.
        What to do if an employer business itself is closed for ever, and there is no one to sign or stamp the Joint Declaration Form?

  13. SOLUTION: I was not able to login to EPF portal as forgot password was not working due to name mismatch.
    Try Umang App. I was able to raise my claim through this app. It was smooth process.
    You are welcome.

  14. Hey Sir,

    • Register a complaint about your employer on the EPF grievance portal.
      A little pressure from the EPFO makes some employers to respond employee problems.
