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.

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 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 EPF grievance portal.

    • Hi Mukesh,
      PF joint declaration form is needed when your PF account consists wrong details either name, dob etc. If you don’t have any wrong details in PF portal then there is no need to submit PF joint declaration form. Maybe your PF account has some wrong details so your previous employer is asking for PF joint declaration form.

    • Hai Srinivas KBN,
      1. You need to submit PF joint declaration form with your Chennai employer attestation and submit supporting documents like your Aadhar card.
      2. No
      3. If you want to withdraw your PF amount then submit EPF composite claim form non aadhar along with this, your Chennai employer needs to provide a request letter on company letter head to release your claim amount by mentioning the name difference issue. If you want to withdraw your PF amount then there is no need to submit joint declaration form.
      4. Yes
      5. If you are continuing the same UAN then you can do that other wise No.

  13. Hello Sir,

    I am trying to claim my EPF and EPS money online, I have left my job on 30.11.2017, the claim form shows that I shall get my PAN card verified.

    My service period is less than 5 years and the amount to be withdrawn is more than 30,000. I am not able to link my PAN card on the KYC page at EPFO site, I receive this message “Error while PAN authentication. Could not send Message.”

    There is no message whatsoever, moreover, my PAN card has my full name and not my initials, as per PAN card rules- All my other documents including AADHAR have my Initial.

    How do I link my PAN card with my UAN in this case, I also have two P.F accounts, the UAN name shows a dot between my initial and my middle name but on AADHAR it isn’t.

    My question are :
    1. How to link my PAN card with my UAN? (Important since I will lose 35 % in TDS otherwise)
    2. Do I need to merge my two P.F accounts in order to withdraw money?

    • Hi C Yogeswhwar Rao,
      In order to link your UAN with PAN you have to correct your name in UAN portal either in online or by submitting EPF joint declaration form. But this process will take more than 30 days. So it is better to claim your PF amounts one by one offline by submitting EPF composite claim forms, along with your PF claim forms submit PAN card copy and Two copies of form 15G then no tax will deduct from your claim amount.

  14. Hi,

    My father’s name was incorrect in UAN portal. Have submitted joint declaration form to correct the same. Its been more than 3 months where it is not yet updated in UAN portal. When I check with employer, they are saying that it is in ready to submit status at PF office. Due to this, m unable to withdraw my PF amount. Could you pls let me know how long will it take to get that submitted and do changes in UAN portal.

    • Hi Sowmya,
      If your employer submits your PF joint declaration form to the PF office then within 30days your name will be corrected. Otherwise, raise a grievance at PF portal.

        • Hi Bharat,
          You have to take the signature of your employer i.e whose name is present in your employer PF portal as an authorized person for PF.

      • Hi Rajesh,

        The employer suggested that it is in ready to submit status and they are nothing to do with it. Only PF team should get back to the employer to submit it seems. The PF team will be doing that by batch it seems. I have submitted supporting docs on Oct 2017. Could you please let me know how long PF team will take to get back to the employer to get that submitted.
        My aadhar and PAN details is getting failed when i verify in UAN portal coz of father’s name incorrect. Due to this, I am unable to withdraw my PF amount. Also, Could you please let me know if any other option to withdraw my PF.

        • Hi Sowmay,
          Generally, it will take 30 days, but sometimes they don’t do that, so it is better to raise a grievance at PF portal so that they will work on your request.

      • Hi Rajesh,

        I face the below example issue. Please help me by rectifying from it:

        Pan card name: B M S Abirami where as in efiling database, it is Balachandar Muthusamy Subramanian Abirami
        Aadhar: Abirami B M S
        UAN: Abirami BMS

        When i try to link UAN with Pan and aadhar, it is showing mismatch. As discussed with income tax department, i was informed that it is not possible to update the name in income tax database as per Aadhar. Please let me know if we can correct aadhar as per income tax database and then link both PAN & Aadhar with UAN.

        • Hi Sowmiya,
          Have you linked your Aadhar with PAN? if it is not linking then you can correct your name in Aadhar as per income tax department database, but the process will take minimum 30 days. (Or)
          If you want to withdraw your PF amount, then submit a PF composite claim form and a request letter from your employer to release your claim amount by stating the difference in names present in Aadhar and UAN portal.

          • Hi Rajesh,

            I have linked Aadhar with PAN. I am not sure how it got linked for the below details. Will the aadhar database have the name as per income tax database?

            Pan card name: B M S Abirami where as in efiling database, it is Balachandar Muthusamy Subramanian Abirami
            Aadhar: Abirami B M S

            Only when i try to link with UAN, m getting this issue. If i submit composite claim form along with employer letter without linking PAN and Aadhar with UAN, 31% of PF amount will get deducted?

          • Hi Sowmiya,
            Submit PAN card copy and Two copies of form 15G along with PF composite claim form then no tax will deduct from your claim amount.

  15. Hi
    Is it mandatory to link Aadhar with PAN for applying PF?
    I left my job by 2015 and applying for pf now on 2018. And I filed my IT for FY 2014-15. Is it mandatory to file IT for current year to apply for pf?

    • Hi Vinodha,
      If you are claiming more than 50000 Rs of PF amount in less than 5yrs of service then you need to link PAN number with PF number. There is no need to file IT for PF withdrawal.

  16. Hi,
    Am Rahul K Nair,I need to withdraw my pf amount so i collect Pf withdrawal form and attested from our company.But when i submitted PF form at pf office ,the staff told me to Update KYC Documents from my Company side.I spoke with Company HR she told me the kyc Updation are showing error while updation, they are helpless.What the solution for this issue plz reply me urgently.

    • Hi Rahul,
      Fill EPF composite claim form non aadhar and submit it to PF office, it doesn’t require KYC approval. Still, if you want to link your Aadhar with your PF UAN then link it at EPF KYC Portal
      But the process will take 15-20 days.Once your Aadhar number links with your PF UAN then you can claim PF with your present claim forms.

  17. If I withdraw through non adhar composite claim form then how many days it’s take the process to credit money in my account..

  18. Sir I submitted joint declaration form but I forgot to write my surname in that form but I attached my adhar card and pan card Xerox.. What should I do now shall I give again that form.. Pls reply

    • Hi Purnima,
      Generally, when you forgot to write the surname then EPF officials don’t accept claim forms during submission time, if they have accepted then you have to hope for the best.
