    Password Mismatch? Double-Check & Reset

    Ensure your “Old Password” and “New Password” fields match flawlessly. Any discrepancies will trigger an error.

    Name Mismatch? Update via Employer (1-2 Months)

    Facing “Unable to reset Password due to name mismatch”? This requires a name change in your PF account through your employer (linked to Aadhaar). Expect a 1-2 month wait due to approvals.

    Mobile Number Change? Update Aadhaar & Reset

    Remember, successful password resets rely on the mobile number linked to your Aadhaar. If it’s outdated, update it in Aadhaar first. Once your Aadhaar reflects the correct number, proceed with the usual reset steps.

    Aadhaar Mismatch? Update with Employer & Reset

    An Aadhaar mismatch in your UAN can block password resets. Get your employer to update your Aadhaar through their portal. Once it’s synced, resetting your UAN password becomes a breeze!

    Date of Birth Discrepancy? Update via Employer & Reset

    Similar to name mismatches, a Date of Birth mismatch can stall password resets. Ask your employer to rectify it through their portal. With a corrected Date of Birth, resetting your UAN password will be smooth sailing.

    Passbook Login Blues? Wait 6 Hours After UAN Reset

    Remember, the UAN member portal and Passbook portal share the same password. If you recently reset your UAN password, wait 6 hours before attempting to log in to the Passbook portal with the new password.

    Aadhaar Authentication Error? Relax & Retry Later

    Don’t sweat an “Error while AADHAAR authentication” message. This temporary glitch on EPFO’s end usually resolves itself. Just try again later!
