Want to change/update your PF details online: EPFO has made it easier

New Delhi, Jun 3, 2024 

The EPFO has operationalised a new software functionality on its website for PF members to update/correct their profile online 

The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has introduced a software functionality allowing Provident Fund (PF) members to conveniently update and correct their profile information online.

This new feature, operationalised on the EPFO website, empowers members to modify crucial details such as their name, gender, date of birth, parent name, marital status, nationality, and Aadhaar information.

Since the launch of this facility, a significant number of PF members have already availed this service. EPFO has approximately approved 40,000 requests through EPFO’s field offices. Employers play a crucial role in the verification process, ensuring the accuracy of the updated information before recommending it for approval. Notably, EPFO has received around 2.75 lakh requests till now through this new system.

The new facility is part of the EPFO’s efforts to enhance its services and improve the overall experience for its members.

The organisation currently maintains around 7.5 crore active members who contribute to the provident fund, pension, and insurance schemes each month. In the first two months of the current financial year, the EPFO has settled around 87 lakh claims in various forms, including housing advances, post-matriculate education, marriage, illness, final provident fund settlements, pension, and insurance.
