How will the application

To apply for PF advance, the employee can do this work by logging on to the website of EPF India, as well as applying through the portal from his phone. Most importantly, even if you have taken PF advance earlier for medical or any other needs, you can still take this advance. EPFO has said that any advance received under the EPF scheme is not subject to income tax. 

KYC update required

However, if one is still not able to take PF advance, then it can be a matter of KYC update along with many other issues. This means that the KYC of your account may not be updated, due to which your advance is getting stuck. If you are applying for PF advance online then it can be done only, but for this your UAN, Aadhaar must be linked and your bank account KYC and mobile number should be linked with UAN. If this is not done, then you will have to update your KYC by submitting your KYC on the member portal.
