EPFO KYC updation – For both employers and employees

Hello, in this post we will discuss how to update EPFO KYC for both employers and employees.

We will cover the following:

What is KYC?

One of the significant menaces in our country’s economy is Money laundering. Even though the financial institutions and the government are on alert, illegal activities still happen. So to prevent such activities, the government had made KYC mandatory for banking or investment transactions.

Know Your Customer or KYC is a one-time process that will help banks and financial institutions to verify the identity of their customers. The customers’ identity, appropriateness, and any involvement in unlawful purposes or practices are verified.

The registration agencies need to submit a list of documents like PAN, Aadhaar, etc. to complete the KYC process for mutual fund investors. To complete this process you need KYC forms and proofs of identity as well as address.

KYC updation for employers

Step-1: Firstly, go to the EPFO website and enter your login credentials Username, and Password in the employer’s sign in and click on Sign in.
