If PF Account Holders avoid ‘these’ mistakes, it will be able to claim money without issues
Mumbai: The Provident Fund account holders often tend to make a few mistakes which do not allow them to claim money. So to avoid that it is important to take care of a few things.
Carefully fill the account number- Provident Fund claim money will be credited to the same account which will be recorded in EPFO (Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation,) records. Therefore, while filling the claim, fill the details of the account carefully. If you enter the wrong account number or any other account number, then your application will be rejected. Incorrect bank account details:
Complete the KYC- Even if the KYC (know your customer) of any account holder is not complete; your application can be canceled. Along with completion of your KYC details, there should also be verification. You can check whether KYC is complete or not by logging into your member e-Seva account.
Correct Date of Birth- Your application can be canceled even if the correct date of birth is not filled. This means the birthdate recorded in the EPFO and the birthdate recorded in the employer records must be the same. Recently, the EPFO issued a circular on 3 April, in which it relaxed the rules to correct the date of birth recorded in the EPFO records and link to Aadhaar. Now you can fix the date of birth for 3 years.
Connect account with UAN: The account number should be linked to UAN (Universal Account Number). If your account is not linked, there can be problems in claiming money. Apart from this, the IFSC number recorded in the EPFO records must also be correct.
