Government or private sector employees who are subscribers to the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) will have to link their Aadhaar card with their Provident Fund (PF) accounts by September 1, 2021, to continue receiving funds into their account without any hiccups.

The labour ministry amended Section 142 of the Code of Social Security 2020 to implement this new rule. Section 142 provides for establishing the identity of an employee or an unorganised worker or any other person through Aadhaar number for seeking benefits and availing services under the Code.

Previously, the last date set by the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) to link the 12-digit Aadhaar with PAN card with PF accounts was June 1, 2021. However, the government has extended the last date to link the Aadhaar card with the PF account to September 1, 2021, to provide some respite to the subscribers. Employees won't receive PF money if they fail to link their Aadhaar card with their PF accounts.  

“The ECR shall be allowed to be filed only for those members, whose Aadhaar numbers are seeded and verified with the UANs, Ensure the Aadhaar seeding in respect of all the contributory members to enable them to avail uninterrupted services of the EPFO and to avoid any inconvenience,” EPFO earlier mentioned in a circular.  

As per the order issued by the EPFO, the date of implementation for filing ECR (electronic challan cum receipt or PF return) with Aadhaar verified UANs has been extended to September 1, 2021.

How to Link Aadhaar to PF account 

1) Visit epfindia.gov.in 

2) In Online Services, click on E-KYC Portal 

3) Enter your Aadhaar number, and wait for the OTP to be generated

4) Fill the Aadhaar number again and verify the OTP. 

5) Aadhaar will be linked with your PF account.
