Process for Digital signature registration EPFO

Dear Community members,

Our digital signature for EPFO is expired in this lockdown period. So do we have to visit EPFO office to get the new digital signature registered or is there any online option available for the same? As the digital signature is not registered with EPFO portal, we cannot approve some KYCs or transfer claims of our ex-employees.

Your guidance is much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Shefali,

You can do the approval using ESign Service using Aadhar OTP.

Also, I have got my DSC renewed in lockdown. Applied on Online EPFO Portal and then submitted the Signed Copy on Email to PF Office.

Hi Shefali,

It must be there. Email id’s will as per your PF location. Kindly contact them and they will let you know. You can send the scan copies and they shall approve the DSC.

How many days it will take to get the approval?
Please share your contact no. I am fighting for it for 2-3 months now.

Hi @Aprajita,

You could try raising a grievance on the link below:

:: EPFiGMS :: Home

It has worked for us in the past, as they are obligated to reply to you for the same. Usually it takes upto 7 days to get a reply.

It’s showing error.
Error 1021 : eSign already registered

But when click on approval by esign, it says - register your esign.
