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.

  1. Does the EPF field officer verify father’s name during PF transfer approval?
    For pf transfer, does EPF field officer verify father’s name available in Pan card or in Aaadhar card?

  2. I am currently not working. I have two pf accounts. I have not done the pf transfer. I want to do pf transfer after correction of my father’s name. If I submit the joint declaration for father’s name correction through the last employer, will it change the father’s name in both pf accounts?

    • If you want to submit PF joint declaration form then it is better to transfer your PF first, after transfer you can submit a joint declaration form through your last employer.
      If you change your father’s name through your first employer then you may face problems in PF transfer, due to a mismatch of details in both PF accounts.

  3. I am currently not working. I have two pf accounts under one UAN. I have to submit Joint declaration form for father’s name correction. Can I submit the joint declaration form through any one of the previous employers? Or, is it required to submit a joint declaration form for each of the previous employers?

      • I am staying in Bangalore. The last company pf office is in Mumbai.
        The first company pf office is in Bangalore. Will it create any problem, if I submit the joint declaration form through first company?

      • My first company pf office is Bangalore, where I am staying now. The last company pf office is in Mumbai. If I submit joint declaration through first company will it create any problem?

        • If you haven’t transferred your PF yet, then you can give it a try.
          But it is better to register a complaint on the EPF grievance portal and select your Bangalore company’s PF member ID, to know whether they accept it or not.
          (You will get a reply in 2-3 days.)

  4. After submitting joint declaration form in PF office , do they provide any receipt or reference number to track the status of the Name correction request?

    • They will give you the acknowledgment receipt, but it consists of your PF number and UAN only.
      For tracking, you need to check your UAN portal regularly and you will get a message also after the correction of details.

  5. It’s been a month since I have submitted my joint declaration form but still changes are not reflected on the EPF portal.

    I have also dropped an email on the EPF office email ID but haven’t received any response from them.

    What should I do in this case
