    2. It is due to technical error between Income Tax and epfo portal connectivity. However it may be noted that KYC of PAN no. in UAN is mandatory for EPF members with less than Rs 50000/- balance and less than 3 years of PF period of contributory service at the time of seeking final settlement of PF on leaving employment. In such cases you may have to file paper format manual claim Form 19 and Form 10C duly attaching self attested xerox copy of PAN along with filing a copy of Income Tax Form 15G for seeking exemption from TDS on amount of PF settlement received. However for those with either more than 5 years of PF contributory or less than PF balance of Rs.50000/- at the time of seeking PF settlement,without any need for KYC of PAN with UAN they can opt directly for online claim services provided other mandatory KYC documents viz, Aadhar, Bank account are KYC linked with UAN and approved by employer
