Sir. If one employee left from service and exited from PF portal but after some months he rejoined service and by mistake paid contributions to his same UAN without creating PF second ID. Now how to claim his pf amount from his pf portal. Please let me know your valuable advice.

Lakkaraju - it's a gross payroll mistake. Why were the employee's PF accumulations posted to his previous member ID?

It is a very common fact that a new/ separate member ID is created everytime a member starts tenure with an Organization.

Practical advice - please send a payroll correction form to your payroll department to correct the entries. As far as I know, the postings can be corrected in the next due month by passing corrected amounts. Please create a new member ID and link it to the UAN.

Otherwise, this will also cause an inconvenience to the employee also, as he/ she will not be able to claim any PF transfers in future. Please communicate to the employee about this error and assure him/ her of the corrections in a timely manner.

In this case there may be several options. If the employee left the organization and employer did not show him exit in the PF portal, then he may continue with the old ID and obviously with same UAN number provided the employee has not joined during his gap months to any other organization and opened new ID in that organization.

If the employer marked him exit in the PF portal or joined some other organization in the gap months along with new PF ID, then new ID will be required to generate against the constant UAN number.
