EPF UAN Name Correction online,How to update your Personal details in UAN?


As per the EPFO’s latest notifications, seeding of Aadhaar to your EPF UAN is mandatory to avail the online services like EPF transfer, online full EPF withdrawal or EPF advance withdrawal.

However, most of the EPF subscribers have been facing data mismatch issues (between EPF UAN data Vs Aadhaar data) while linking the two. In such a scenario, the EPF member (employee) has to get his/her personal data (like Name, Date of Birth or Gender) corrected in Aadhaar card (or) UAN interface.

If your data is correct in Aadhaar and you would like to get your EPF UAN name updated/changed, the current procedure is a bit lengthy one.

Currently, if an employee wants to correct his/her basic details against UAN, employee and employer are required to submit a joint-request to the concerned EPFO field office.

In order to reduce the paper work, the EPFO has now launched a new facility, where-in an employee can now submit an online request for EPF UAN name correction.EPFO latest notification on UAN EPF account name correction process online procedure pic
