EPF account holders can breathe a sigh of relief. EPFO (EPFO) has assigned a base number ( AAdhaar Number ) to PF accounts (PF Accounts) and UAN numbers (UAN Numbers) to be raised on the last day of the three-month period ending September 1, 2021 (EPF-Aadhaar Linking Deadline Extended). Its current deadline (EPF-Aadhaar Linking Deadline) is June 1, 2021. If you haven’t yet linked your Aadhaar number to your PF and UAN accounts for any reason, now is the time.
If you don’t hurry, there could be problems.
If you have not yet linked your Aadhar number to your PF accounts and UAN number, you should do it soon or suffer issues. It’s worth mentioning that the government had previously extended the deadline for integrating Aadhaar and PAN. EPFO had previously set a June 1, 2021 deadline for this work. This will provide employers additional time to link their employees’ Aadhaar numbers to their PF accounts or UAN numbers.
The deadline for filing a PF return has been extended.
The deadline for submitting receipt of PF returns with Aadhaar validated UAN has been extended to September 1, 2021, according to an EPFO regulation. On May 3, the Ministry of Labor and Employment issued a statement stating that the beneficiaries’ Aadhaar numbers should be collected under the Social Security Code. Only after the EPFO has given an extension to the deadline.
