Hi all,
I need some informative help and assistance regarding my EPF Account for better clarity.
On all my documents (Passport, PAN Card. School Certificates etc ) provided , has Only my first name written. Which is " Madhukar " (No Last name mentioned. )
My question is : Will thr be any problem in Opening EPF account ? without the surname / last name.
I request to kindly educate me about the above. Any information provided will be much appreciated.
thanks
Madhukar

In simple words, EPF account can be open with only first name and there is no certain condition to supply last name because there are many people who having only first name or having no last name professionally in records.
And if you have supplied copies of your valid document to your employer having your name on them as "MADHUKAR" only, than you will be registered as "MADHUKAR" with EPF only by your employer. You also need to make sure of having the same name on the receipt of EPF No/details provided by employer, so that, there wont be any problem at the time of withdrawal.
Because you required a savings bank account (SB A/c) with the same name that you have in your EPF records else you wont be able to get your fund.
