Employees Provident Fund Organisation is usually a retirement fund body that allows customers to make withdrawals from their EPF Account. In order to ensure hassle-free withdrawals, the customers must have an accurate bank account in the records. There are instances where people close their bank accounts and do not change or update the new bank account in their EPF Account. Moreover, incorrect bank account details can lead to the failure of credit transactions. The customers can then verify their incorrect bank account details through the EPFO portal.
The banking sector is rapidly growing as it is becoming more improved and bringing advanced technologies and processes. Today, the customer can easily access their EPF account with the help of the internet along with doing the withdrawals from any place.
