EPFO Notifies Employer Guidelines For Rectification Of Details For KYC Update Of Members

In case of employers filing incorrect details of their member employees with EPFO, such employees find it difficult to fill in their KYC online. In order to rectify the incorrect filing, EPFO has provided a detailed process to the employers that can be completed online and offline based the type and number of errors along with submission of certain supporting documents.

As we all are aware that EPFO introduced online ECR filing from the year 2010. All the employers have to update their member employees details accordingly so that their employees can receive the benefit of online settlement hassle-free.

However, there are situations where certain employers provided their member employees details incorrectly due to which such employees cannot fulfil their KYC update promptly.

To enable the employers, correct those errors, EPFO (web circular sr.no.217 dated 12 Feb 2021), has listed certain documents that employers jointly with their employees has to provide and rectify those details.

If there are only spelling corrections, expansion of initials in member’s name, and change in date of birth, then, it can be submitted online with documentary proof.
