Provident Fund is the saving on which you rely after the retirement. However, many a times small glitches can make the process of applying for PF very complicated on the EPFO website. In such a case you will have to make sure that the details that you have given at the time of creating the PF account in the organization should match with that of Aadhar.

In case, for some reason the details are not matching, here are the simple steps that should be followed.

If you as an employee are willing to correct the details against the Universal Account Number(UAN), employee and the employer should give a joint request to the EPFO.

Pre-requisites to make the changes:-

·       Active UAN

·       Aadhar Number

Once the employer is convinced that the changes have to be made, you will have to send those changes to the employer on the Member Unified Portal. Upon receiving the request the details of Aadhar and the one given by the employee will be matched. Once done, the request would be sent to the employer who in turn will transfer the same to the EPFO.
