Understanding the Importance of Updated Bank Account Details:

Your bank account details serve as the lifeline of your PF account, facilitating seamless transactions such as deposits, withdrawals, and other financial activities associated with your PF contributions and withdrawals. Keeping these details up-to-date is crucial to ensure the smooth processing of transactions and mitigate any potential delays or complications in accessing your PF funds. Whether it’s receiving your monthly contributions or initiating withdrawals during emergencies, having accurate and current bank account information is essential for uninterrupted access to your PF funds and overall financial stability.

Offline Method: Changing Bank Account Details in PF:

  1. Obtain the PF account update form (Form 13) from your employer, or you can download it from the official EPFO website.
  2. Fill out the form with accurate information, including your old and new bank account details, PF account number, and personal details.
  3. Attach supporting documents, such as a cancelled cheque or a bank statement containing your new account details, along with a copy of your Aadhaar card, PAN card, or any other identification proof.
  4. Submit the completed form and supporting documents to your employer for verification and attestation.
  5. Your employer will forward the updated information to the EPFO office for processing.

Online Method: Changing Bank Account Details in PF:

  1. Log in to the Unified Member Portal of the EPFO using your UAN (Universal Account Number) and password.
  2. Go to the ‘Manage’ tab and select ‘KYC’ from the dropdown menu.
  3. Click on the ‘Bank’ option and enter the details of your new bank account, including the bank account number, IFSC code, and account holder’s name.

  5. Once the changes are submitted, your employer will verify the updated bank account details through their employer portal.

Important Points to Remember:
