Can I withdraw PF online without Aadhar OTP
No, you cannot withdraw your PF amount online without Aadhar OTP. EPFO made it mandatory to enter Aadhar OTP while submitting online PF claim forms like form 19, 10C and 31.
Earlier EPF offices used to accept offline claim forms like EPF composite claim form non-aadhar which doesn’t require linking of aadhar number with EPF. But now EPFO Is not accepting such forms.
They are asking the EPF members to link their Aadhar number with UAN and claim PF amount online in the UAN member portal.
What to Do If I Don’t have My Aadhar Linked Mobile Number with Me ?
If you have lost your aadhar registered mobile number then you have to link another mobile number of you with your Aadhar card.
You can link your mobile number with Aadhar at your nearest Aadhar enrollment centers. For that first you need to take an appointment at the Aadhar enrollment center.
During the Aadhar enrollment appointment process you need to select Aadhar updation option and select mobile number and book the appointment.
After booking the appointment take the print out of the acknowledgement form and take it to the Aadhar enrollment center on the appointment date.
Now at aadhar enrollment center they will take your biometric details like fingerprints and irish scan and they will update your new mobile number.
Your new mobile number will be linked within 3-4 days, now you can use that number to link your EPF account & you will receive the OTP while claiming PF online.
How to Change Mobile Number in EPF
Step 1: Go to the UAN member portal website, enter your UAN and password and click on login.
Step 2: Now click on view and select profile option .
Step 3: Now you can find an option to edit your mobile number.
Why am I Not Getting OTP from Aadhar
Sometimes due to the server issues of the UIDAI website the EPF members may not receive OTPs. In that case, try to withdraw PF amount after some time & it is better to use Mozilla Firefox as a browser (or) Umang app to claim PF amount online..
