EPFO Removes Aadhaar as Valid Date of Birth Proof: What You Need to Know

The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has recently made changes to its document verification process for updating the date of birth. According to reports from Business Today, Times of India, and LiveMint, Aadhaar card is no longer considered a valid document for proof of date of birth.

Previously, individuals could use their Aadhaar card as a proof of date of birth while updating their EPFO records. However, the EPFO has now removed Aadhaar card from the list of accepted documents for this purpose. Instead, individuals are required to submit documents such as birth certificates or mark sheets as proof of their date of birth.

This change in the document verification process by EPFO has raised concerns among individuals who primarily relied on their Aadhaar card for updating their date of birth. It is important for affected individuals to be aware of this change and take the necessary steps to provide alternative documents as proof of their date of birth.

If you are an EPFO member and need to update your date of birth, make sure to review the updated list of accepted documents for proof of date of birth. Contact the EPFO or visit their official website for more information on the revised document verification process.

It is advisable to keep important documents such as birth certificates and mark sheets readily available to avoid any delays or complications when updating your EPFO records. Stay informed and ensure that you comply with the new requirements to avoid any inconvenience in the future.
