  1. I am experiencing an issue with updating my bank details in the KYC section on the EPFO website. I would greatly appreciate your assistance in resolving this. The problem is that I have incorrectly updated the IFSC code, which has led to a rejection. Could you please guide me on how to update this section again?

    • You can reupdate the correct bank details again, and wait for employer’s approval.
      After approval you can apply for PF withdawal.

    • If your employer is operating their business, they should approve your KYC.
      If else, either you have to meet your employer directly or register a complaint on EPF grivance portal.

  7. It is intimated that your bank account seeded through member portal is being verified by your bank automatically. There is no roll of EPFO in verification of bank account.

    My account is already approved & Digitally signed the why this message reply given by EPFO during my Final withdrawal.

    • That means it is getting delayed by your employer, so better contact and ask them to approve your bank details on their employer’s PF portal.

  12. My SBI KYC for EPF claim settlement now the status changed to “pending with employer for digital signing”. But I was told that the approval is done by SBI directly and it is without employer. My employer says that the link is available to him for digital signing. Now what to do?

  15. Hi All,

    If the person resigned & moved out of company, but still the KYC digital error is not approved by employer. Will the last employer still have access to digitally sign the Bank KYC ?

    Please clarify

    Best Regards
    Ravi

    • Your bank details should be approved by your company in their company PF portal, so ask them to approve your bank details.
      (For SBI bank accounts, employer approval is not required, for other banks, it is required).

      • I have an SBI bank account but still getting the error.
        The employer is not responding to my emails, what could I do.

        • Sometimes it will take a maximum of 7 days.
          If it doesn’t get approved automatically then register a complaint on EPF grievance portal website.

      • Hi Rajesh, my issue is kind of weird. I had updated SBI bank details in my EPF portal. Initially it was pending for verification but after few days the status changed to pending with employer for digital Signing. I checked with my employer and they don’t see my kyc entry. What should I do? Like you said for SBI it should be the bank who approves.

        • It takes a maximum of 7 days to get SBI accounts approved without the employer’s intervention.
          If it delays more than 7 days, register a complaint on the EPF grievance portal.

          • Hi Rajesh. Thank you for your response. Yes, I did raise a grievance after 7 days. This is what the response I got from them. “EPFO office has no role in approval of Bank KYC”
