Know Your Customer (KYC) is a one-time process that helps identify members. It links the UAN (Universal Account) with KYC information. Some KYC details are bank accounts, Aadhaar, PAN, and other important information. All of these details must be correct and up to date. Also, the EPFO will turn down any online requests you make for withdrawals, account transfers, and other things if your account doesn’t meet KYC requirements. So, if you want to use these online services, you must ensure that your KYC is up to date in your PF account.

 

Following our step-by-step guide, you can change your KYC information on the EPFO member portal.

1) Use your UAN number and password to sign in to the EPFO online portal (https://unifiedportal-emp.epfindia.gov.in/epfo/).
