The new process of UAN Name Correction online is launched. You must be aware that online EPF services like EPF transfer & EPF withdrawal are provided only if your Aadhaar is linked with UAN and KYC information are updated. However, in the majority of cases, it is found that people are unable to link Aadhaar with UAN. This is mainly due to data mismatch (Name, Date of birth and gender) between UAN and Aadhaar. Options left with the subscriber is to either correct Aadhaar information or contact employer for modifying the name and other detail in UAN account.
Both these process is lengthy. In the first process, you need to contact Aadhaar Enrollment center or provide request online for modification. In another case you need to submit a request to employer and employer will submit a request to EPFO on your behalf. In order to reduce the time and hassle new UAN Name Correction online process is launched.
