It has been seen that many EPF members are facing problem in seeding Aadhaar with their UAN as there is mismatch in Name, DOB or Gender between Aadhaar data and UAN data. Presently member and employer are required to give joint request to concerned EPFO field office for correction in basic details. Now this request can be given online by member and in turn employer can online forward the request to concerned EPFO office.

Step by step process flow for this functionality is given below:

Step 1: Member will login through his UAN/Password on Member Interface of Unified Portal

https://unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/memberinterface/

Step 2: Click on “Manage>Modify Basic Details”.

Step 3: Please provide the correct details as per Aadhaar (System will verify the details entered with UIDAI- Aadhaar Data)

Step 4: On clicking “Update Details” on previous screen, request will be submitted to employer for further approval. Before submission by employer, employee can withdraw the request by pressing “Delete Request”

Step 5: Employer will login to Employer Interface of Unified Portal https://unifiedportal-emp.epfindia.gov.in/epfo/

Step 6: Employer can view the change requests submitted by employees by clicking on “Member>Details Change Request”

Step 7: Employer can view the online requests received from employees and can thus take appropriate action by giving the proper remark.

Step 8: After approval of request, employer can see the latest status of request.

Step 9: After approval of request by employer, request will appear as a task in login of Dealing Hand, of concerned EPFO office, in the Field Office Interface of Unified Portal

Step 10: Dealing Hand can login and view the online change requests by clicking “Member>Details Change Request”

Step 11: After due verification Dealing Hand can submit his/her recommendations to Section Supervisor.

Step 12: Finally APFC/RPFC can Approve/Reject the case

    I’ve been following up with PF Office for several months now for rectification of DOB. But there is no response from them even after submitting a joint letter from my employer. This workflow is extremely useful. Thanks for sharing. Do you know typically how long it takes to get the end to end process completed and see the changes reflected in PF Records.
