How to change employee name in EPF account - provident fund

rambabu_shastri Started The Discussion:

My name was misspelt by the employers over 20 years back in my EPF account as Rambabu Shastri, whereas it should have been Rambabu Gopinath Shastri. How can I get the middle name added to the EPF account?

Dear Amandeep Gill,

You can receive an acknowledged application mentioning the wrong & correct name against your PF Account Number with a copy of ID card, PF Slip & Annual Return. But the name would change only at the time of withdrawal. You need to attach same inward copy of application with withdrawal forms.
