EPFO enables option for deleting and re-submitting the joint option for higher pension

The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation, vide circular No. Pension/PoHW/2023/69114/615, dated, 3rd May, 2023, has introduced an additional option of ‘Delete Application’ in the online facility for claiming higher pension. The employees, after submitting the application, if there are any corrections, can delete the application and thereafter file a fresh application for validation with proper details. However, this option can be exercised by the employee only if the employer has not acted on the submitted application. Where the employer has already acted on the submitted application, the employee won’t be able to use the delete option. However, even in such cases, employee will be provided opportunity to rectify the errors after scrutiny of application by Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation, as stated in its earlier circular dated, 23rd April, 2023. An alert on the said circular, has been circulated by Ascent on 26th April, 2023, with all the clarifications.
