Dear fellow members, My question is relating to Basic Details change functionality under Employee Provident Fund Member Portal.
Kindly provide your valuable input.
Question: On member portal >>> Manage >>> Basic Details, If the member choses to update Name/DOB/Gender and selects any of the previous employer for attestation/approval, then will the same details be also corrected and reflected on the PF records/Member ID of that approving/attesting Employer?
An Employee wants to transfer PF online from previous company, however he has updated his name on Aadhar after joining our company and the same has been updated on his UAN via basic details change request on member portal - Approved by us, the present employer.
When we try to apply for PF transfer via member portal, and Select details of previous accounts (which are to be transferred), his old name appears on member name (ie. the name before he updated Aadhar). This may prove to be a hindrance and the Transfer Claim may get rejected by EPFO. Inorder to avoid this risk, I was wondering if the member can update his previous service details via basic details change functionality with approval from previous employer online, Without the need of submitting any offline joint delcaration forms from the previous employer.
I hope my question is clear, perhaps too detailed. Open to any technical corrections and insights. Kindly share your thoughts.
Thanks in advance.
