EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction – Online procedure

Whether your Aadhaar Card and UAN details like name, gender and date of birth are not matching? Are you finding it difficult to correct the same in UAN? EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction now can be easily updated using the unified portal. Let us see the process.

All of you are aware that linking Aadhaar with UAN is now mandatory and the deadline of 31st December 2017 is set for this (Ref-How to link Aadhaar to EPF Online without login? and How to link Aadhaar to EPF using online and offline? ).

However many EPF members facing the huge uphill task of updating their name, gender and date of birth in their UAN details. The reasons are two.

# UAN Helpdesk is not functioning properly. Earlier EPFO made it easy to update your details using UAN Helpdesk. However, many of my blog readers faced the issue that UAN Helpdesk not at all working (Ref-How to update or correct EPF UAN details online or offline?).

# If UAN Helpdesk is not functioning properly, then the only option left for employees to update the name, gender and date of birth through their employers. This is the cumbersome and time-consuming process. Because for this update, your employer’s help is required and once this joint declaration submitted to concerned EPFO for fields correction.

Both these process created a huge burden on employees. Because in one way they have to link their Aadhaar to EPF within the deadline and in a second way EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction became a lengthy process.

EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction – Online procedure

Considering these difficulties EPFO no provided an option where EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction can be completed online at ease. Let us see the process.

Step 1-Visit the EPFO’s Unified Member Portal. Log in to the account using your login using UAN number and password. Then under the tab “Manage”, select the option “Modify Basic Details”.

EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction Online

Step 2-Then you have to first enter your Aadhaar number and proceed for the entry of the details like name, gender and date of birth AS PER AADHAAR records.

EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction Online details

Step 3-Once you click on update details tab, the below screen will appear. Here you can view the details you entered, check the status of the details updated and also can delete the request. But do remember that employee can delete the request before an employer can approve the request.

Step 4-However, if your UAN is already Aadhaar verified, then you are not allowed to change the details. The message appears  as below.

EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction verified status

This is how you can proceed with EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction online. Once employee submit the request, then the below process will happen at the back end.

# Employer will login to Employer Interface of Unified Portal.

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

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

#  After approval of the request, employer can see the latest status of the request.

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

# Dealing Hand can login and view the online change requests by clicking “Member>Details Change Request”.

# After due verification Dealing Hand can submit his/her recommendations to Section Supervisor.

# The Dealing Assistant can put the case either for Approval or Rejection by selecting the appropriate radio button i.e. Recommended for Approval or Recommended for Rejection with proper remarks.  In the same manner, Section Supervisor can submit his/her recommendations to APFC/RPFC.

# Finally APFC/RPFC can Approve/Reject the case.

Note:-Do remember that EPFO not set any deadline for this. Even though it is completely an online process, your employer approval is a MUST. Also, the update is allowed only as per Aadhaar details. Hence, before jumping into EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction online, first try to correct for any mismatch in Aadhaar.

Once the Aadhaar details are perfect, then go ahead for UAN correction. Otherwise, your request may be rejected upfront.

      Since you want name in all places to be as per pan .
      Step 1 correct Aadhar card at the Aadhar centre.
      Step 2 if your old Aadhar is verified on pf portal you will have to submit joint declaration to correct your name and Aadhar in pf portal. If Aadhar not verified then you can log in and under basic you can correct the same.

        I raised gravience on PF portal for rejection reason in details. They replied me that no PF contribution is made for 3 months in betweeen emplyement (For this period my wife was on leave without pay for maternity reason). Also they asked to resubmit the claim with clarification from the establishment.

        Does that mean I need to resubmite claim again through employer with joint declaration mentioning that that period was LWP? Will it work?

  82. Hi sir,
    My name on UAN and Aadhaar is different. I am trying to update the name UAN portal, as mentioned in your post. But getting the below error.

    “The details provided by you are not matching with your aadhaar details. ”

    Since my aadhaar has correct name.Its been 1 month i had updated the my details but till i dint got any approval,can you please help me out from this.Thanks in advance.

    Error: Invalid key info in digital signature (this means that certificate used for signing the authentication request is not valid – it is either expired, or does not belong to the AUA or is not created by a well-known Certification Authority).

    1. This error comes when UIDAI site rejects the authentication request for OTP based aadhaar authentication. It is most likely because the digital certificate used by EPFO to sign the aadhaar authenticatuion request has expired. Wait for EPFO to renew the certificate (which may take an unknown amount of time).

        1. Hi.I can withdraw advance 50000 from my pf account if pancard is failed also through online.

        2. Sir
          It is possible to modify again as Pan card name ( Arunkumar) as in aadhar card & uan (Arun Kumar S) which is already approved from Epfo. before going to online withdrawal pf. Kindly give the solution.

        3. Sir
          I can apply for modify name in UAN. After doing the name correction in aadhar as pancard.

            1. Sir
              Already aadhar & uan linked same Name – Arunkumar S.we can modify name as pancard Arunkumar no issue.

  116. Sir,

    My online PF claim application got rejected because of PAN card did not able to update as My name is mismatching with Income tax pan records and UAN / EPFO. Name in Pan card and with the records of employer is same as Mahesh Kumar P N. Is it possible to change my name in UAN records? If it possible Kindly suggest in which name I have to update with UAN as I guess the name has to be changed as per income tax website. And please clarify will there be any issue if it is not similar to name printed on Adhar Card. I want to apply the same though online.

      1. Sir,

        The main problem is in my all documents including my pan card, my name printed same as Mahesh Kumar P N. There isn’t any deviation. But in Pan site it is Mahesh Kumar Peechedath Narayanan(expansion Included). The UTI technology office informed me that the name can’t change as Mahesh Kumar P N because Income tax pan site records name only with Father name ( Narayanan). That means Mahesh Kumar P N is not possible to update with income tax pan details. Kindly suggest any chance to do this.

      2. Hi Basavaraj,
        I had two employers A and B respectively. I had applied for physical PF withdrawal through B but the documents got rejected stating ‘Profile Incomplete’ even though everything was filled. I then tried online withdrawal. Employer A updated everything and aadhar, pan, bank account verified. Then I applied for withdrawal online, this time it says details not filled as employer B hasn’t updated joining date, leaving date etc. Employer A says, Employer B needs to merge the PF account balance, only then I can withdraw online (P.S. I have only one PF account registered with both the employers). Employer B suggests sending physical documents again. Please advice what should be the right course of action.

        1. Dear Sangjukta,
          I think the issue is with joining and exit dates. Please check with your employer for the same. If no solution, then raise an issue with EPFO Grievance Cell Online.

          1. Hi Basavaraj,
            Thank you for your replies. Both my employers (1 and 2 ) have updated everything on the epfo portal and I can withdraw EPF now, but only of employer 2. In the claim tab, I can see claim for only my 2nd employer. I contacted 1st employer, they said I will need to transfer my 1st employer PF amount into 2nd employer’s PF account. For that I have to select transfer request on the online services tab. (P.S. I have only one UAN number registered with both of them). In the transfer request tab, I can only see details of my second employer with an error message “Present employer has not made payment in your PF account.”. Please guide on how to transfer my 1st employer’s PF amount into second employer’s PF account and then withdraw both together.

I raised a grievance on this, the PF dept suggested me to add the KYC again, the moment I did, it is now showing under my new employer pending approval list so the former employer cant do anything now. So, if my new employer approves this, will these be updated automatically or I need to raise the grievance again? Also, what is the transfer process? Is it get transferred automatically or I need to submit an application? My new employer is yet to deposit the PF money, so the former passbook is fine but the new one shows blank still.

  162. Hi,
    I have two UAN numbers as in my previous PF account number DOB is wrong.
    I understand by your blogs that 1st i need to correct DOB and then need to request for transferring the previous account.
    I requested for DOB change thru online on 15th Mar 2018 and the employer approved immediately, since the DOB is difference in aadhar is more than one year, I received a notification from EPFO mentioning I need to submit attested documents within 15 days. As per the instruction I sent self attested documents to EPFO, but they have rejected the my request even before documents could reach. I called the concerned officer. She says I need to submit the supporting documents on the same day and these documents should be attested by the previous employer.
    If i need to get documents attested from previous employer to change DOB thru process offline, then why cant I simply fill joint declaration form and send to previous employer with self attested documents to process offline.
    Please suggest me which process is simpler.
    Also let me know about attesting documents for both online and offline process.

  165. Hi,

    It’s a complicated issue but please bare with me.

    The main issue is I want the name in my UAN to be changed to just the first name. I cant do it online as my KYC is already verified. But after the KYC verification process i have changed my name recently in my Aadhar card From Kashish Lubana to just Kashish as all my certificates including my Pan Card have just the first name. So What is the process to change the name in the UAN portal to just Kashish instead of kashish lubana.

  166. I have a UAN number but it was not activated because of date of birth doesn’t match with UAN.
    So can you help regarding this.

  167. My date of birth is 01/04/1962 but in system02/09/1967, I had requested to barrack pore PF office 4 moth Back but They did not corrected so far.

  168. Hi
    my name is Deepak pant. Regarding basic details (D.O.B/NAME) Correction:-
    I submitted request in two times
    1st -15-JAN-2018-Rejected by SURAT field office
    Remark – supporting document required for dob correction ( I am agreed I did not submit supporting documents)

    2nd-13-DEC-2017-Rejected by SURAT field office
    but 2nd time I went to epfo surat office. i submitted all required document regarding remark (6-jan-2018)

    now problem is today is 20 march 2018.they did not correct my details,
    I call to epfo but they give me feedback and feedback is file is pending in commissioners desk.
    my question is that how much time will take ?
    I am under trouble how many times I will go epfo office.it is 2 years almost but my epf account is not ok regarding wrong dob and name,
    if I submitted my all documents why they are delaying .

    Please let me know what is our system?

    Why they are lazy

    1. Sir already change dob document sumbit but no any soultion for your side proof already pic capture

  169. Yes, I checked, it’s under digitally approved KYC; however, when I opt for online transfer it says please update your bank account details :), don’t know why though! Raised this issue with EPFO twice, they couldn’t figure it how its happening. I think I have to go for manual claim submission.

  170. My UAN is linked to Aadhar, it shows KYC is done. However, PAN no and Bank Account is yet to be linked. Though my employer has approved PAN and Bank Account digitally. Then, why it shows that KYC is done? Can I go for manual claim submission process of withdrawal since PAN and Bank Account is not linked?

    1. SANDEEP:- Check your KYC page in UAN account. PAN and Bank account details should fall under Approved KYC. If it is approved you can avail online services. If it is not approved you can not avail online services. Manual claim submission can not be done if you are currently employed.

  171. Hello can we changed our date of birth as per adhar card
    As in pf it’s already wrong update
    If possible then what is the process

  172. I have a slightly unique issue. Could you help with on what I need to do to get this sorted?

    I am a female.

    My PAN card, which I had applied for before my wedding, states my father’s name.

    My Aadhar card, which I got after marriage mentions my husband’s name.

    My Aadhar card has been digitally verified on UIDAI portal, it states so on the UAN. No issues with that.

    1. Under the Member details page of the Unified Member portal, point (4) Father’s/ Husband’s name, it mentions my husband’s name but in the very next column, it states the Relation as ‘Father’.
    Since Adhaar has been verified, the portal is not allowing me to make any changes in personal details.

    2. I am not able to verify my PAN Card digitally on the UAN portal. It constantly throws an error without providing any details!
    I am guessing the issue is because there is a mismatch in my ‘Father’s name’ between the UAN & PAN.

    This is getting highly frustrating and I think I am going in circles here.

    Please let me know how I can solve these?


    1. For PAN & Aadhaar verification UAN portal only checks your name and there is nothing to do with Father/Husband’s name.

      Check your PAN card name and UAN portal name if it is matched then portal should allow you to update. To check your name in PAN card; Check the same on Income tax website because the name registered in their database can be different then what is printed on PAN card.

      1. Thanks Pavan and Basavaraj-
        I checked my name on the PAN Card from the IT website. It matches exactly with the UAN.

        One additional question:- Can I simply approach the IT office in person and submit the new ‘Form 19_Composite claim form’? I have been unemployed for over 2 years now.

          1. My UNA Number is 100766228336.Not update DOB,Gender, Aadhaar card,Pan card,& father name .I sent all documents at 4/01/2018 it shows to pending of filed office upto today.what I will do please suggest.

  173. I have updated my aadhar card. It’s verified by the employer and field office. But now when I am trying to submit my claim for withdrawal it’s asking me to update father’s name. Since Aadhar is already approved, I am unable to modify those. Could you please suggest a way!

    1. Swapnil:- Father’s name can be updated by employer. Get in touch with your employer he will help you get it updated!

  174. My name was in initials in office record as well as in epf. But in aadhar and pan the initials were not accepted and written in full form. Now my epf details are not getting updated on online due to mismatch. Please guide me

    1. Update the name on UAN portal by referring above post. To get the services of UAN, Your Aadhaar and PAN card needs to be digitally verified, Offline verification won’t help in availing Online services.

  175. Hi

    I have my gender wrong in the UAN portal. I have already linked Aadhar to the UAN. I tried correcting it. But there was error saying “Aadhaar is already verified. Your details aren’t editable”. Then with my previous employer I have submitted a joint declaration for changing basic details. Now I can edit my details in ” Manage>Modify Basic Details “. But when I say update Still I am still getting an error saying “AADHAAR is already verified in unified portal. Your details is not editable”
    What can I do now ?

  186. Hi Sir,

    I have 2 UANs and both are currently active because the PF transfer from first UAN to 2nd is not done yet. I am facing issue to transfer the PF balance from 1st UAN due to mismatch in NAME and DOB. Initially I tried to update it online but got the message to send proof for DOB correction. I sent 10th certificate but then again it got rejected saying huge difference in DOB and asked me to submit Joint Declaration form and other supporting documents.

    I contacted my previous employer and they agreed to help in this regard. But after submitting all documents, the previous employer is saying they are not able to update it because I had already left the job and UAN is deactivated and asking me to get it done from present employer. They are also saying that PF department has stopped accepting the hard copies. In that case I don’t understand why they asked me to submit joint declaration form and other documents in hard copy?.

    I have checked and found that UAN is still active. Now I am not sure whether the present employer will be able to help to update the details in previous UAN because the UAN currently associated with present employer is different. Could you please guide how to get this resolved.

      1. Thanks for the reply.
        But as I have mentioned in my query, there is some correction needed for the details related to old UAN which was created by former employer. Is it possible to get those corrections done from Present employer?


          1. Thanks for your kind reply but your Employee means I didn’t get you… Will you plz elaborate…

    1. Girish:- Once you have marked as Ex employee, Employer can’t edit your details. Since both UAN are different current employer can not help you in this regards. Raise EPFO Grievance online stating your concern and upload all related documents. You can try your luck this way!

  187. Hello Sir,

    My UAN and Adhaar has the name Chai Nallur but in the Pan card its reversed, it shows as Nallur Chai but in my pan card display name is chai N. I am not able to verify pan card in EPFO. Please suggest

  196. Hi Sir,

    My name is Vinodh kannan G

    My PF & AADHAR got verified successfully and now i need to update PAN.
    While updating only i found my name on IT shows “GOBI VINODHKANNAN”.
    (I came to know now only that we can’t use “Initial/single letter” on Front/Back of our name on IT/PAN).

    So, Pls help me to proceed further.

    Is any possibility of changing name online on PF after changing my AADHAR again???

    Pls advise.

      1. Thanks for your response.
        Actual error is in PAN.
        Bcoz they created my PAN as “gobi vinodhkannan” here gobi is my father’s name.

        Now PAN dept says you cant use Only 1 letter on front or back of my name.

        So, if this is the case now i need to change both my PF & AADHAR.

        I need to know is there any possibility of changing name after aadhar linked on PF.

          1. For that how can i do it online? Bcoz already my PF is aadhar verified!?

            Now do i need to req. For name change manually??? Or can i apply for name change online.

            If yes, pls explain the procedure.


            1. Vinodh : If your Aadhar name and UAN name is not matched also Modify Basic details page says that details aren’t editable then wait for the portal update. Your details will be updated automatically.

  197. Hello,

    Need assistance ..
    PF account is linked to Aadhar card, but there is change in the name that needs to be done but system does not allow me to do so as it liked. Failing to understand that my name on Aadhar shows as Anitha Rakesh Nath which is the correct name but PF account shows name as Anitha Pillai which was before marriage.

    Please advice if there is a option of changing the name as per Aadhar online.


        1. Current employer can help you on these. While modifying details online it gives option of Select employer on “MODIFY BASIC DETAILS” under Manage Tab, choose there and intimate your current employer regarding this. They will approve the status from their end.

  198. Dear Sir,
    For changing my date of birth . My employer approved the request. Last one month it’s pending with field office. Today morning I checked the status in MODIFY BASIC DETAILS. The pending request showing zero.
    I am not sure that the requested is rejected or accepted. So, I need your valuable suggestions for further proceeding.

    It is approved by the employer and it is now pending approval from “Kolkatta field office”. It is pending more than 10 days.

  204. Hi, thanks for publishing this very comprehensive article. I have a couple of questions that I should be grateful if you can answer. I had signed up for a PF account with my previous organisation and set up my profile on the EPFO website, etc and also withdrawn the amount last year. It has been two years since I left the organisation and moved to another so in an attempt to see how much balance I have in my PF account with the current employer I sent an SMS to the EPFO number for checking PF balance and realised I have some amount left from the previous organisation’s PF account. It shows no amount from the deposits made at the current employer. Does that mean I have a different UAN number for the current employer? How can I take the little money I have left in my old PF account? Also, I tried to update the KYC details but it says they are awaiting approval from the old employer. How do I change the employer?

  205. Hi, I have requested to change my name as per Aadhar. It is approved by my Employer and pending at PUNE field office since last 3 days.

    Could you please tell how many days it generally takes at field office?

    1. In a reply to an RTI I filed, I asked for the deadline. They said that there is no such deadline, though they said they “try” to do it in 10 days. I’d suggest that you file an RTI with the concerned office, asking for the status. It is very likely that your work will be done before you get your reply.

  206. i raised request to change my date of birth, its showing as pending with employer. let me know who is approved for the changes ??

  207. Hi sir,one myname ,gender,dob,are same in aadhar,in pan,and in uan,aadhar is verified, as well as name changed in uan.but the pan is not approved,saying mismatch against the uan details,in deep her father name is krishna kuruva in pan,krishna k in uan and kuruva krishna in aadhar,suggest which document to be modified,

  208. Updated Gender details and full name, and aadhar details >> approved by office and field officer.

      I am trying to transfer my PF amount from old PF No to new PF no through UAN Portal. bank, Aadhar & PAN already verified on portal.

      Step1 says to option for Present & Past employer.

      Note : Member has the option to choose claim form attestation by present or previous employer, based on availability of DSC authorized signatory.
      Attestation through : *
      Previous Employer Present Employer

  255. Hi,

    I updated my basic details (name and Aadhar) through UAN portal. My employer approved it. Now I received SMS from EPFO that it is rejected by EPFO field office. Reason: Submit MRC. What is MRC?

    1. I updated my basic details (name and Aadhar) through UAN portal. My employer approved it. Now I received SMS from EPFO that it is rejected by EPFO field office. Reason: OK. What is OK?

    2. I think MRC stands for Marriage Registration Certificate. If you have got married and changed your name in Aadhar & then tried to update the same on UAN then some PF offices ask for this certificate. Better to approach your employer and submit joint declaration.
