How to update or correct EPF UAN details online or offline?

I receive many queries of how to update or correct EPF UAN details online or offline. Because may might forget their password, changed phone number, changed address or some issues with EPF UAN. So let us understand it in detail about this problem.

Update (24th November 2017):-Many readers found that UAN Helpdesk not working many times and the only option left for them to correct UAN details is through an employer. However, EPFO came up with a solution and now EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction can be easily completed online itself using the Unified portal. Refer the post for the same “EPF UAN name, gender and date of birth correction – Online procedure“.


  1. EPF UAN Unified Portal-Now you can download EPF Passbook/UAN Card in a single portal instantly. Also, you can change your email and mobile number linked to your UAN. Refer the complete details at “How to download EPF Passbook and UAN Card online instantly?“.
  2. EPF Grievance Cell -Lodge EPF related complaints online

Let us recap of what is EPF UAN?

I am quoting the same lines of what I wrote in my earlier post about EPF UAN.

Universal Account Number or UAN act as a unique 12 digit number to each member under which you have multiple IDs allotted by your employer will be tracked. Suppose if you join a new company then you just need to submit a UAN number to your employer. You can now get this UAN number from your employer. Because allotting of UAN already started.

The main purpose of this unique number is to provide access to employees to have a view of his/her profile and access the services like viewing profile, changing profile, download online passbook, or request for transfer. To avail such facilities you need to create a login by visiting UAN Homepage. Follow this LINK to verify whether UAN is allotted to you or not.

You can read more about it from below link.

Now let us first know of how one can update or correct EPF UAN details online.

  35. Greetings sir,

    Myself Arpitha.

    I have 2 PF account in one UAN. Currently i am not working anywhere. in A company 2015 to 2016 June, In B. 2016 July to 2016 December.
    In UAN employer mentioned DOJ & DOE all. But PAN number they mentioned wrong i informed them to change but they are saying no now can’t editable because your Adhar number is already updated.

    So how can i withdraw 2 company PF amount. and what all documents required for offline and how to apply. Please help me sir

    1. I have two UAN Nos, and one pf account without UAN no how to join all together,
      And correction in name and DOB pl suggest

  36. While updating KYC details for Aahar details it shows Name against uan and Aadhar does not matches. So, ..what can i do for this .

    even in my profile Adhar no tot showing

  37. Hi,

    I would like to withdrawal my PF amount. But, My Gender and My DOB birth details are wrong in UAN.

    I have raised a request under ‘Modify Basic Details’ section in UAN Portal to correct them. However, my employer when trying to approve is unable to approve and getting some error. What could be the reason behind this ?

    If online application is not working, can I still submit Joint declaration form? Can you help me with a link to download Offline Joint declaration form.

    Also, For withdrawing my PF amount, can I go ahead and mention the same incorrect details in the PF withdrawal form and ask my employer to submit to verify and submit them to PF office ?
    Since I am withdrawing PF amount less than 50 thousand , I will not submit PAN Card copy and Form 15G copy, I’ll only submit Withdrawal form and cancelled cheque. So, even if I don’t correct the details, I assume I can still withdrawal my PF by mentioning whatever details are configured in my PF account. Am I true ?

    Thanks a lot for your Help,

      1. But If I have to withdraw my PF, i can simply mention the same wrong details in PF withdrawal form and withdraw PF. Won’t that work ? I will not give PAN card because my amount is less than 50K

  38. I have made name correction in UAN through portal. In UAN correct name is being displayed, but when I check my PF balance it is still showing wrong name. Is there any other process to correct name in EPF or else correction made in UAN will automatically get updated in EPF?

  39. In UAN Portal DOB is displaying correctly and i have also done KYC verification on Aadhar & PAN but still my PF transfer got rejected due to Date of birth (DOB) mismatch. Please assist me how to update it office records. Thanks

      1. Thank You Basavaraj. I have raised Grievance in EPF_GMS site.

    1. Hi Mohit

      For data correction in EPFO site (like father’s name/your name/dob etc). you need to consult your employer not the EPFO site.

      1. Mohit

        Date of birth correction if more than a year online updation will not do.Proof like birth cert. or school leaving certificate with joint declaration along with employer is required.I faced this in Malad office.

  53. i submitted my all documents for name correction at epf office at k r puram.bangalore on 13 november bt still pending.

    Last month I did so and got a message from EPFO regarding the withdrawal in process.
    But till date have not received any payment and when asked during the form submission was intimated that will get the payment within 15 days.

    Please advice !

      1. Thank you, Sir !

        Also please let me know after Withdrawal of PF amount and the closure of PF number , will that even close the current UAN too and when I join a new company should I open a new UAN ?

  80. Dear sir,

    Good Morning,

    Kindly would request you to guide for the change in the DOB in the UAN portal page . My dad had visited multiple times the office at Hyderabad since Feb-2017. Every time they asked for new document and proof for DOB.
    Lastly in August 2017 they did take the biometric verification of the adhar card but till now the DOB has not been changed and his pension claim is held back.

    Due to this could not even link the AADHAR card details as it displayed DOB mismatched.

    Kindly suggest a way out for early resolution.

    Thanks in Advance & Regards

      1. Thanks Sir for your prompt response.

        In that case if issue is lodged with the EPFO grievance cell online, when can we except the response and what is the response rate from them.

        The followup with them also is difficult as we cannot reach them over phone and the offices are closed on weekends.

        Thanks in advance and regards,

  100. Sir
    I have two EPF accounts, one with current employer and other in previous. Can both UAN be merged through current employer?
    My name mentioned in UAN with previous employer is not matching with that on Aadhar Card. Will there be any issue of merging through current employer?

      1. Sorry, you have not mentioned which employer Previous or Current Employer. Somewhere I read if, there is a change required for one or two alphabet in name it is not required to apply through your previous employer just documents are required to support that; Is it true?

  101. Hello sir,
    few concerns i have :
    1.) I want to transfer pf..while clicking on claim (form-31 ,19&10c) i am getting “AADHAAR is not authenticated from UIDAI. Please authenticate your AADHAAR by visiting nearest EPFO office.” this error.
    Although i have updated AAdhaar in the portal as a kyc details.
    Do, i have to go physically in EPFO office and get updated???

    3.) Under Online Services..>Transfer Request, after entering member id , and clicking on the getdetails button i am geeting error as “Present & Previous member ID’s must be different.”

    1. Vineet-1) Whether it is verified by employer? If not, then better to follow the instruction what EPFO portal suggesting.
      2) Through employer you can correct it.
      3) Yes, may be your process is wrong. Cross check once again.

  102. Hi,
    Yesterday I have received SMS from EPFO saying that your adhar is not verified due to mismatch in detail and on UAN portal adhar kyc is showing in approved status with pop-up as verify.on Adhar my name mentioned as Name-Fathername- surname where as on UAN my name is Name-surname. On UAN my father name is mentioned separately in father section. My UAN is activated by my previous employer. So kindly advise if I need to change my name on UAN if yes is i need to contact previous employer or current employer can request the changes to EPFO office..

  103. Thank you sir for above guideline.

  113. Dear Team,

    The option displyed on your guide of ‘For Employees’page are not actually came on the website, but some other options are present there.

      1. Hi,

        Im the HR of a company …is there any way online that I can correct the Names and date of birth of our employees.There are many names wrong and the forms sent last year for name correction also the PF office has not corrected so far.
        Can I upload a pdf with the UAN nos and the correct names of employees on the new software.

      1. Two questions :
        1) Is the name, DOB, Father’s Name in UAN created by employer ?
        2) What happens if we move to another company and these details are not updated ? Will they be able to link new PF account number with UAN if details are not matching ?

          1. Thanks for the reply. One more doubt. I have come to know you need confirmation from employer to change details in UAN. Can I update these details through new employer or do I have to go through only my previous employer (who created the details in UAN)?

  114. Sir I apply to my pf but not update my correct name d.o.b ,pan card no.and my aadhar card no. Plz help me

  165. Hi ,

    my name is SHAIK JANI BASHA, while activating the UAN by mistake i entered SHAIK JAIN BASHA.Could anyone help me on this.

  166. Hi,
    My employer takes passport as reference for creating employee profile and my passport has no surname. But all the other documents like aadhar, ration card,etc has initials mentioned.
    And my employer has skipped my initials(as in my passport), while submitting for PF account creation. Hence has no initials nor surname.
    Now I am requesting to change the name giving Aadhar as reference. PF in-charge in my office is saying that, first the Aadhar number has to be verified in KYC details, which is obviously failing because of name mismatch.
    Also, my father name initials expanded in the PF profile. Should this be changed too? Because my Aadhar card has only initials mentioned in my father’s name.
    Please suggest to get the name changed.

  167. Dear Sir,
    I have been transferred in same company from one sector to another ans state location is also changed. when i checked my details in UAN profile, it is showing Mr. “Surname” “First Name” instead of Mr. “First Name” “Surname” and when i am submitting my KYC. it is showing error that UAN details are not matching with details of submitted documents online. Now my new company has opened a new PF no. and i want to transfer my old EPF amount to the new one but not able to do it.

    Would you please guide to resolve the issue and correct the details for smooth transfer in future also.

  168. My Surname is put instead of my father’s name and i would like to change and i am unable to do so from my end,is there any procedure to do so.kindly advice.who should i contact.?what should i do to change.?

  199. Hi, I have my approved KYC as pan card which is showing but when i manually try to enter my pan card number and name again manually it shows as details donot match with income tax department. I want to know is my pan card kyc accepted and the error it is showing when i enter manually is just server error or not?

  200. Hi I have a error in my UAN id name. The spelling of my name is showing wrong as ROBIN instead of ROHIN, this issue I raised with my employer through a joint declaration. After months of pursuing my case and registering my grievance through the online EPF portal, I got an email from labour ministry that my name stands corrected in the records. When I checked my name in the unified portal it was still showing as ROBIN,however when I checked my balance in the passbook of the site my name spelling was showing correct as ROHIN. When I rechecked my name in the epf unified portal my name was still as ROBIN. Hence I concluded that my name was corrected in the passbook balance check site but was still wrong in the epf unified portal. So I ask you what should I do??

  201. Hi when I tried to manually enter my pan card number and aadhar number in the unified portal for KYC verification, it is showing error that name against UAN doesnot match with the NAME in the income tax department. what should i do??

    1. same error message I am also getting.. I think it may be due to initial misplacement. In UAN my name is given as Razeena Nilofer N. But in PAN it is N Razeena Nilofer.

  202. I don’t see the link for UAN Helpdesk. do you have a direct link for that ?
    I need to apply for correction in my name and also update Adhaar Info

      1. Basavaraj, in your instructions the step 2 where you are referring to “click on UAN Helpdesk” that link does not exist on the page. Hence i don’t see page 3 and can not do anything. any help is appreciated.

  203. I resigned from my previous company and no longer work. When i upload my aadhar number using UAN it shows pending approval. My past company cannot approve since i no longer work there.

    How can i get my aadhar approved on UAN portal ? Appreciate your help.

      1. Thanks for the guidance. I logged an issue with EPFO Grievance cell online and got the below response.

        “Sir this is to inform that the KYC details has to be approved by employer only. The PF office has no option to approve or upload the KYC details of member please tell your employer to approve the KYC detail”

        Further following up with my employer, they says since you’re no longer our employee their system doesn’t allow to update the AADHAR details.

        Its now back and forth becoming frustrated.

  204. Hello Basavaraj ,

    I would like to update my gender detail in UAN, as you know the UAN help desk is down and i have asked my employer to do it but there is no response from them, without this my Adhar number cannot be updated, could you please suggest me any other option?

    THEY SETTLED pf only in 2016 after my request in JUNE-2016. and then i got the withdrawal in AUG-2016 after TDS.

      1. Actually, first account was with my previous Employer from APR-09 TO MAR-09
        2nd a/c with CURRENT EMPLOYER as contract employee from mar-09 to sep-13
        3rd a/c when I regularized by same employer from sep-13 till data

        I asked for settlement for 2nd a/c, for which my case is concerned!

  213. Sir,
    We already entered employee details in PF portal in 2014. At the time of entry we missed/not entered DOB/Gender of employee. The employee resigned in Dec.2016. We try to upload KYC details – but system not considered – DOB/Gender mismatch with registered data.

    Pleas advice how to Edit/Enter DOB/Gender of Existing employees? (NEW PF PORTAL)

    ratish (from Employer)

  214. Hi Basavaraj,

    Thank you for the very informative post above. I have a query.

    Is The DOB shown in the UAN member portal, the DOB linked to the current PF account also?

    If not, how do I see what is the DOB associated with my PF account?


  215. I need to withdraw my pf (now i am not in job) ,but my name is incorrect .Employer and me jointly applied for name correction a long before. Employer is now telling that they submitted the form and also the office informed my employer that the process was done.When I checked my pf ,the same is issue is still existing. I informed the same to employer.

    Now the employer asking me better you apply directly for withdrawal . But I’m afraid that EPFO will reject my form due to my name mismatch,if I apply. Please suggest me solution.

    1. OK Divya,
      Can you ask for the acknowledgement slip from your Employer. Whenever correction form is submitted,
      employer gets the acknowledgement receipt. With this acknowledgement if you raise the grievances, then
      EPFO will immediately update the same . You will have to email or call them to make these changes.

    Please guide me what to do. Also, if you can suggest the browser that I can use to get the option of updating my new phone number. I have tried explorer, crome and Mozilla..

    Please reply. Need help on this matter urgently…



            1. sir i checked my name in the newly launched unified portal. It is still showing wrong spelling name and it has still not been corrected. I have also left my job with my last employer and applied for withdrawal from them but since my name is still incorrect will it create a problem at the time of withdrawal?

    1. sir my name is wrongly spelled in the epf database by my last employer. I have left the company and now when i enquired about my pf situation the company is not responding to my calls. I have two questions for you. can i withdraw my pf amount directly without the employer signature?and will the spelling mistake in name cause a problem in my epf withdrawal?

        1. The company has said they have done it from there end as they have given me a copy of letter dated 25th october,2016 but when i checked it yesterday it is still showing my wrong name spelling. I left the company in december 2016 and filled out the form for pf withdrawal. Now the payment is due after February 2016 that is after 2 months since I left. I am worried that the wrong name spelling might make a problem in the final withdrawal since it is still not been corrected at the EPF database. Also i donot have a clue whether the company has sent my forms for epf withdrawal since I left on bad terms with them.So I wanted to ask can I withdraw the amount myself? and will the wrong name become a problem in my final withdrawal if i decide to withdraw myself since it is not corrected in EPF database?

            1. sir i have raised the issue at the helpdesk but they hardly reply and still havenot corrected it. The toll free number also does not work
