If you’re wondering how to update your PAN card details in your EPF account, read on. The EPFO has made this process easy by assigning each employee a unique UAN. After you receive your UAN, visit the EPFO member portal and fill out the required information on the form. You’ll then need to submit self-attested copies of your UAN and PAN to complete the process. Once this is done, you’ll receive an email or a text message letting you know that you’ve successfully linked your PAN with your account.
Once you have your PAN number, you’ll need to link it with your UAN in order to access your account. To do this, go to the EPFO website and click on ‘Manage my EPF account’. You can then select “PAN Linkage” under the Member profile section. After entering your UAN and PAN, click “Save” to complete the process. If you encounter issues, you can contact the EPFO directly or use the online complaint form.
You may have to submit a new application for a PAN if you change your name or address since the two documents are unique. This is because if your PAN matches your name on your EPF account, you’ll have a difficult time linking the two accounts. In addition, you can’t link your PAN with your UID, as the verification is performed from the UIDAI data.
