My female relative is facing difficulty updating her full maiden name on her PF account. Her Pan and Aadhar cards bear her maiden name. Even her employer has updated her maiden name in their record. However, the PF Dept says they want an attested letter from her employer requesting this name change from married to maiden name. My relative had applied to her employer with her married name on her c.v. which was forwarded to the PF Dept. The employer is insisting that she produce a divorce certificate to the PF Dept & them to get this change. She is happily married and not divorced. Please advice. Thank you.🙏
after her marriage, she add a surname or title, in these cases she has to required to fill in a prescribed form and submit it to the EPFO. If she change her surname in her bank records or office records, it is mandatory that she has to make the same change in the EPF database. Along with the specific form to make the change, she required to provide a copy of the marriage certificate as well. However, if her name does not reflect in her bank account, there is no need to make the change in the EPF account. Her name recorded in the EPF database and the bank account through which she intend to withdraw her PF, should match.
