EPFO: Is your mobile number not linked to Aadhaar also? So get it done today itself, otherwise there may be difficulty in withdrawing the money.


Link Your Mobile Number With Your Aadhaar Card: Employees Provident Fund Organization i.e. EPFO is a unit of the Government of India, which looks after the work related to PF. PF accounts are opened for working people as per the rules, in which a fixed amount is deducted and deposited every month from the employee's salary. At the same time, the company also has to deposit the same amount in the employee's PF account. After this, the government gives annual interest on it and then the account holder can withdraw some money if needed during the job or the entire amount after leaving the job. Not only this, but the employee can also receive a pension from his PF account, but if you have to withdraw money from your PF account, then it is mandatory to link your mobile number with Aadhaar. Otherwise, there may be difficulty in withdrawing money. So let's know about this...

Why is it necessary to link a mobile number with Aadhaar?

It is important to do this because when you withdraw money from your PF account online, an OTP comes on the mobile number linked to your Aadhaar. In such a situation, if there is no mobile number linked to your Aadhaar, then you may face difficulty in withdrawing money because without OTP the money cannot be withdrawn. In such a situation, you should get your mobile number linked to your Aadhaar, so that you do not face any problem.

This is the way to link mobile numbers:-

  • You have to go here and take the correction form

Step 2

  • In this correction form, you have to fill in information like your full name, and Aadhaar number.
  • Also in this form, you have to enter the mobile number which you want to update.
  • In this case, fill the mobile number in the form.

Step 3

  • Then take the filled form to the concerned officer
  • Where your biometrics will be taken and your photo is also clicked.
  • After this, the request to link your new mobile number with Aadhaar is accepted by the officer.
