Steps to Upload KYC for EPF UAN

The UAN EPFO portal now allows individuals to update their EPFO KYC records online. One will need a UAN (Universal Account Number) credential to go through the process of upgrading or modifying KYC (Know Your Customer) data on the UAN EPFO site. To find out how to update KYC in EPF UAN online, the individual must log in to the EPFO UAN portal and upgrade their KYC by uploading the required documents online.

If the account is in good standing (i.e. the KYC document has been completed), the user will not experience any delays when transferring or withdrawing funds. There is a possibility that the petition will be denied if the bank account information is out of date.
