The joint Declaration form is a combined form signed by both employer and employee and it is used for correction in the PF member portal. PF joint declaration form is a very secure and useful tool for Name correction in UAN, Date of Birth Correction in PF account, Father’s Name, Date of Joining and Date of Exit. It is basically used for all the corrections to be made in the PF account.
What is the Joint Declaration?
It is the only option available to correct all the EPF related errors. The correct date in the EPF portal is essential since Transfer, Claim and all refund-related issues are executed online and also the Aadhar number cannot be linked too. The small changes like Name and DOB can be done online via Unified Member Portal. But the major changes such as Date of Joining, Date of exit and Reason for exit can be rectified only by using Joint Declaration Form.
