KYC Not Approved by Employer then What is the Further Process for Applying PF Claim


Know Your Customer (KYC) is a process that is used by employers to verify the identity of their employees. It is a mandatory requirement for all employers to ensure that their employees are who they say they are. However, if an employer does not approve a KYC application, then the employee will not be able to access their PF claim. In such cases, the employee must take the necessary steps to ensure that their KYC application is approved. The further process for applying PF claim in such cases involves submitting the necessary documents to the employer, such as identity proof, address proof, and other relevant documents. The employer will then review the documents and approve the KYC application if all the documents are in order. Once the KYC application is approved, the employee can then proceed to apply for their PF claim.
