Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) members can now update their date of departure from a firm utilizing the online portal. This functionality enables employees to change the date of exit in their EPF account quickly. There are, however, a few conditions to bear in mind.
Individuals can change the date of leave only after two months after quitting work, according to the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation’s (EPFO) FAQs. It’s also vital to understand that the departure date is not fixed, but it might be any day of the month. It is usually the day your prior employer sends you your final payout.
“To use this facility, employees must ensure that they have activated their UAN (Universal Account Number),” explains Amit Gupta, Managing Director of SAG Infotech. After that, connect it to a confirmed Aadhaar number and get the one-time password (OTP) for verification.”
Steps To Update Your Date of Exit via UAN Portal
Go to the EPFO portal and log in with your UAN number and password.
In the next step, you have to go to the ‘Manage’ page and choose ‘Mark exit.’ From the selection list, choose the relevant PF account number.
Fill in the Exit Date and Reason for Exit.
Request an OTP by clicking – Request OTP’ and entering the OTP.
Check the box, then click ‘Update’, and finally confirm by selecting ‘OK.’
A confirmation message will be presented verifying the successful change of the departure date.
Procedure For Employees To Check If The ‘Exit Date’ Has Been Updated
From the ‘View’ option on the Member e-Sewa site, select ‘Service History’.
A new tab will open, displaying a list of all employers with whom the employee has EPF accounts. This list will cover crucial information. The date of entering the EPF, the date of leaving the EPF, and the date of joining the EPS (Employee Pension Scheme) are among the data contained in the list. It is critical to remember that once the departure date has been updated, it cannot be changed under any circumstances.
