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.

      You can submit yourself also, it is not problem. But remember along with PF joint declaration form you need to submit a request letter from your employer on their letter head to PF office regarding correction of your father name.

      It happens when your details like your name, dob, father name don’t match in your previous PF account number and new PF account number. So correct the wrongly mentioned details as per your Aadhar card. You can correct them either online or by using the PF joint declaration form.

    • Hi Elavarasi,
      You have to correct the wrong one, if your dob is wrong in Aadhar then visit any Aadhar enrollment center to correct it, if your dob is wrong in PF then correct it either online at UAN portal or by submitting PF joint declaration form to your PF office.

    I have my UAN account linked with 3 PF account of 3 companies, I got my UAN Created from my first company, i initiated for online submission but since its more than 1 year, it was mentioned as pending at bommasandra filed office. my first employer approved online but it was still pending when i enquired in bommasandra filed office they asked to submit joint declaration with employer sign and seal.

    I didn’t have a proper relieving from that company and i they are not helping out mentioning that they won’t sign. is there any way to change details without the joint declaration from employer??

    i won’t be able to claim pf amount in future without UAN correct details?
