Take the EPF Aadhaar Seeding Application Form, fill all your details. Now submit it to the EPFO office. Along with the self-attested copies of your UAN, PAN, and Aadhar, submit it to the office.
As soon as your details got verified, your aadhar number will be linked to the EPF account. You will get a confirmation message on your mobile number or e-mail.
