PF Account New Update on KYC Full details


In this post we will see in details about the new announcement that has come in the PF account.


PF Account Update

Previously OTP was only required to link Aadhaar card number and bank account number with KYC in PF account.

OTP is essential for linking any of the documents given below with our PF account. This means that an OTP will be sent to the Aadhaar card before attaching these documents. You can only attach these documents to KYC if you register the OTP.

  • Aadhaar card
  • Bank Account
  • PAN card

But before this you do not need OTP to link the PAN card number. Aadhaar OTP is now declared mandatory for linking PAN card number with PF account.


If you do not have a mobile number linked to Aadhaar card, you will not be able to link KYC documents to UAN.


Once the Aadhaar number is linked to the UAN. The Aadhaar number cannot be updated again. There is no option to update Aadhaar. After that there will be only the option to link PAN card, bank account and passport.

If someone else’s Aadhaar number is attached to your UAN instead of your Aadhaar number, it cannot be changed online.


Only specific information can be updated online in UAN. Aadhaar number cannot be changed. If you have not yet linked the Aadhaar number in your PF account then only the Aadhaar option will be displayed on the KYC update page.

First you need to link the Aadhaar card number. After that you can link the PAN card and bank account number.
