Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) subscribers can request a change in their basic details online, through the EPFO’s (Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation) Unified Portal – unifiedportal-emp.epfindia.gov.in. This was said by retirement fund body EPFO on microblogging site Twitter. Retirement fund body EPFO provides an online facility that enables EPF members to request a correction or update in their basic details online. This online facility works on an Aadhaar verification-based method, wherein the requested changes are compared with the details in the Aadhaar database, maintained by the Aadhaar card-issuing authority, the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India).
Provident fund body EPFO had in November 2017 introduced an online facility for EPF subscribers to request changes in their basic details – such as name, gender and date of birth (DoB). EPFO had said in a statement dated November 21, 2017: “Many references are being received that members are facing problem in seeding Aadhaar with UAN due to a mismatch in Name, DoB or Gender is UAN data and UIDAI data.”
