In a huge relief, the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) is providing the facility of ‘date of exit’ on the EPF portal, allowing account holders to update the exit date online after leaving a job. Earlier, ex-employers had the right to declare the date of exit of EPF account holders as the feature was not available online to subscribers.
To update the ‘date of exit’ online on EPFO website, PF account holders can follow these steps:
-Log in to the EPFO portal- unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/memberinterface
-Enter your Universal Account Number (UAN) and pasword.
-Under the ‘Manage’ option click on ‘Mark Exit’.
-In the dropdown menu of ‘Select Employment’ choose your PF account number.
-Enter the date of exit and reason of exit.
-Select the ‘Request OTP’ option and enter the OTP sent on your registered Aadhar-linked mobile number.
-Now select the checkbox and then click on ‘Update’ and then ‘Ok’.
