New EPF Withdrawal Forms-Withdraw without employer signature

EPFO recently launched “New EPF Withdrawal Forms”, which are called as Form 19 UAN, Form 10C UAN and Form 31 UAN. Now, employees can withdraw EPF without the employer signature.

Important Notice-Now EPFO recently (February, 2017) launched a single form for EPF Withdrawal. Refer the post for the same at “EPF Composite Claim Form -Single form to withdraw EPF without employer“. A Single form is enough for EPF/EPS withdrawal.

Note

Earlier if you plan to withdraw your EPF balance, the process was too lengthy. However, now the employees, who have their UAN and activated it, may withdraw it by directly submitting to regional EPFO.

What are the conditions to avail this facility?

  • You must have UAN number activated.
  • You must linked your Aadhaar number with UAN.
  • You must provided your Bank details with UAN.
  • You KYC have been verified by your employer using digital signatures.

If you are meeting above four conditions, then you can withdraw EPF without the signature of your employer.

What are the facilities provided?

Using “New EPF Withdrawal Forms”, you can do the following activity.

  • Withdraw your EPF or apply for final settlement.
  • Withdraw your EPS benefit.
  • Make partial withdrawal, loan, or advance.

This “New EPF Withdrawal Forms” are easy to fill, as they require your basic data. You have to fill it and submit the same in regional EPFO Office directly. You don’t need your employer signature for the same.

New Form 19 (UAN)

Use this form to withdraw EPF amount when you quit your job due to retirement, resignation, disablement, termination, marriage, or permanent settlement abroad. The few conditions for submitting this form are as below.

  • If you are discharged from the service on receiving the compensation under the Industrial Dispute Act, 1947 or resigned from the job, but not employed in a company where EPFO not applicable, then you have to apply for EPF withdrawal only after two months of waiting period. Along with that, you have to declare about non-employment under any organization where you are having another EPF Account.
  • If you are employed again in a new company where the employer falls under EPFO act, then you have to submit for TRANSFER only.

  7. Dear Sir,
    I worked in company for 1.5 years and left and working in other company at the moment. Hence, I transferred the last PF contribution to current employer contribution. Now I wanted to withdraw the last PF contribution, did apply for PF withdrawal online with form 31 for whole amount from last PF contribution. However, the claim was rejected saying DOJ is not correct.
    I checked my DOJ is correct with current employer. KYC is updated, UAN is activated, bank details updated. Every thing is updated. Don’t know where the trouble is.
    Is there a problem with the amount I mentioned?
    Can you guide me what can be done in this regard. How do I correct with DOJ?
    Please need to access that amount.
    Thank you in advance.

  9. Hello Basavaraj,

    I have a small doubt on EPS amount. In My UAN number i have 2 PF accounts, Old PF account EPS amount is 10,300.00/- and Present Company PF account EPS Amount is 7,747.00/-.

    I applied EPS amount in online, after 10 days i revived amount is 15,300.00/- which is less amount if we add both PF accounts EPS amount. Better to can i approach the PF office or Employer.

  27. Mr. Basavraj,

    I have following query and would like to request you to clarify the same.

    I have completed 5 years of consecutive service in 2 companies (A and B).
    A with 3.8 years and B with 2.7 years. PF balance amount of A was already transferred to B and contribution was continued till I left company B.

    Now, I have joined 3rd organization (C).

    Each organization has its separate PF number linked to a my single UAN number.

    At present, my Adhaar, PAN and bank details are KYC verified by my current employer (C). Now, I would like to withdraw my EPF and EPS both that was accumulated against my A and B employers since I have not yet transferred my PF amount of A and B to organization C.

    So, my questions are,

    (1) Can I withdraw my previous PF balance despite of being in service with organization C that maintains my different PF account?

    (2) My current salary account of organization C is with HDFC but employer C has eVerified ICICI bank account which I used to have as salary account of my first employer A.So, does that mean my bank details are KYC verified and it is not required to get KYC done for HDFC bank details as well?

    Regards,
    Prasad

    Reply
    • Dear Prasad,
      1) As all EPF accounts are linked to single UAN, you are not allowed to withdraw.
      2) Retain the KYC of Bank to be updated for the account which you want to retain forever. Otherwise, changing bank details will be cumbersome in future.

      Reply
      • Mr. Basavraj,

        Thanks for your feedback on this.

        1) Does that mean, I can ONLY transfer my previous PF balance to my current employer till I am not in service for consecutive 2 months?

        2) Lets say, I put down my papers and serving notice period for 2 months; in that case will I be eligible for withdraw claim for my current employer on the same day once my notice period ends?

        3) Should I ask my current employer to update the KYC to my salary account i.e. HDFC by uploading new set of documents for bank KYC instead of ICICI?

        Because I had already given them HDFC bank details required for KYC when I joined the current organization but I do not know from where did they get my first organization details.

        4) One more thing I have heard that, once the bank KYC is done next employer need not do the bank KYC as its been already done.Is that true?

        5) As far as bank account number is concerned; I have noticed that 2 leading zeros are missing for ICICI bank account which is mapped in EPFO portal even though I had given them correct details. Would that matter or cause any issue in case I would like to withdraw my PF balance in future by any chance? [Usually, leading zeros depict salary/saving account that is why]

        Prasad

        • Dear Prasad,
          1) Yes.
          2) Within 2 months you can’t withdraw. However, if join new organization, then you can transfer it.
          3) Yes.
          4) Yes
          5) Better to correct.

            Or just raising online request would suffice the requirement?

            Regards,
            Prasad

  28. Dear BASAVARAJ,
    I am facing a problem for final settlement of my epf.
    As because in our city we are not getting our Addhar card. Without Addhar I can’t apply in online. Another problem is my last company has opened two EPF account in my single UAN no. How will I able to apply for final settlement.

  29. Dear BASAVARAJ,

    My AADHAR,PAN details are not able to link with UAN kyc stating not matching.
    But same are linked with income tax. with out any problem.

    Reply
    • Dear Sudhakar,
      Whether there is any name mismatch in PAN, Aadhaar with UAN? If so then correct at first in UAN then go ahead with linking. If everything is OK, then try to visit the concerned EPFO and link the same.

  33. Hi Basawaraj,
    I have left my job 2 months back and i am planning to raise PF Final Settlement (Form 19). I have overall 4 yrs of exp.
    I have linked my aadhar and bank account with UAN and is verified also. But when i tried to add PAN , its status is unverified as PAN Card has my name with initials expanded and UAN/aadhar/bank details have initials .
    When i tried to raise for PF Final Settlement by online it says 34.6% tax will be deducted as Tds. Is it possible for me to apply for PF Final Settlement Offline ie by sending PAN copy, Form 15G, aadhar copy , bank cancelled cheque , etc directly to PF Office so that Tds wont be deducted??

    Reply
    • Dear Raju,
      Avoiding TDS does not mean avoiding TAX. It is still taxable. If you are unable to link PAN, then no need to worry. Let them deduct TDS and you can later can claim it while filing ITR.

      Reply
      • Hi Basavaraj,
        Right. Since my tax liability for this fy is less than 2.5 lakhs, this pf amount can be excempted from tds. I have one more doubt. So i can go ahead with
        e the
        ccf with aadhar,
        pan card copy
        form 15g
        cancelled cheque
        and send it to the epfo office directly WITHOUT employers attestation?
        At least they should accept my application and can issue the refund with or without tds right ?
        PAN not verified status will it stops me from submitting PF Final Settlement application directly to PF Office WITHOUT the employer attestation?

    I have been trying to withdraw my PF benefits through online procedure, but the claim is getting rejected due to the below reasons:

    My PAN And Aadhar details have been verified in the UAN Portal. In that case, is it necessary to submit the above said documents offline?

    I had submitted the necessary documents to the EPFO office through my employer and have received the acknowledgement on 23rd February 2018. (Offline process). There are no further updates on this.

    Note : 1) I will be working only after 3 years ( 2 years of higher education + 1 year gap now for preparation ).

    2) Current PF balance : 31896 ( Employee Share) + 9754 (Employer Share)

    3) I’m not in urgent need of money however if the interest rate is negligible with PF i would prefer investing in a fixed deposit scheme which offeres better return.

    Please suggest ( Main concern ),
    1) if i should withdraw the PF amount or not?
    2) if its suggested to withdraw the PF amount then should i withdraw pension fund as well? I have heard ppl suggesting not to withdraw pension amount.
    What are the pros and cons of withdrawing pension amount. Kindly elaborate on this.

    Additional details regarding following are also much welcome.

    3) IS the withdrawn PF amount taxable?
    4) Upto what amount is it not taxable?
    5) If the amount is not withdrawn at what rate is the amount multiplied ( Interest rate )
    6) Procedure that i need to follow to withdraw the amount before i leave the company.

    • Sara-1) You will be eligible for withdrawal if you are out of job for more than 2 months.
      2) You can withdraw the both. However, as your service period is less than 10 years, you will not get the EPS full amount but only part of it.
      3) YES.
      4) Whole amount is taxable for you.
      5) It is as per current EPF interest rate.

  63. Hello Sir,
    I have two PF accounts linked under single UAN. Company As PF & Company Bs PF.
    I was unemployed since more than a year. While I was working I didn’t apply for transfer of PF. Since I’m out of both the companies I’m not eligible for transfer as suggested by EPFO office.

    In UAN database the employer of Company B has approved my aadhar, pan and bank details.
    I got the PF of company B but didn’t get the PF of company A.

    My question is, recently I have made changes in my pan and aadhar by expanding my surname.

    Now, how will I get the PF of Company A? Because the HR of Company A is saying she won’t process the PF offline only online mode.

    Can the update of my new aadhar and Pan in UAN be made by the Company A?

        My employment with Employer A was terminated due to business reasons beyond my control on 15-March-2018. On this date my PF is falling short of 1 month to complete 5 years of continuous service. On 20-March-2018, I am going to join Employer B and can opt out of PF.

        A) Can I withdraw my full PF held with employer A post two months from my last working day

        B) Will my employment with employer B where I am going to opt out of PF will have any implication on my PF withdrawal

        c) Will my PF be taxable?

        I would appreciate your inputs

            For Question 3) you mean although my PF with Employer A is falling short of 1 month of continuous service of 5 years, if I withdraw it after 2 months from my last working day with Employer A, the PF will be non taxable.

                    So in summary – My PF with Employer A (who has terminated my employment) although falling short of 1 month for 5 year continuous service can be withdrawn after 2 months from last working day (15-March).

                    Although I opt out of PF in case of my next employer B, I am going to be employed and salaried starting 20-March.

                    Do you think even in that case I will be able to withdraw full PF from Employer A after 2 months from last working day with Employer A
                    and will it be still non taxable.

                    You advice would really help.Thanks in advance

                    • Hi Basu,
                      Thanks for all your guidance so far. Just quick question before I proceed with my PF withdrawal. As mentioned earlier, my Company B had terminated my employment and at the end of my last day I am falling short of 1 month for 5 year continuous employment.

                      In the EPFO system, before I apply for PF withdrawal online,

                      A) Is it mandatory to have my company B to mention ‘Reason for Leaving’ as ‘Employment Terminated’ in the EPFO system

                      B) As the company B has stopped contributing to my PF post my last working day. I hope this would let the EPFO office know that I had left Company B. Is it still mandatory to have my company B to mention ‘Date of Leaving’ in the EPFO system.

                      C) Lastly, if my Company B does not get the above mentioned data filled in the EPFO system, Can I still withdraw my PF.

                      D) Alternately, should I get the PF form signed by PSU Bank Manager and apply manually for PF withdrawal? Would that be a better option?

                      Please advise.

                      Regards,

                      C) Yes, you can do so.

                    • Hi Basu,

                      All the required data in terms of my Aadhaar, PAN and Bank Account has been set up and approved in EPFO portal. Before I proceed to confirm my PF and EPS withdrawal online, I need your help

                      Quick recap of my case for reference as follows.

                      I had worked with Company A and then joined Company B. My employment in Company B was terminated due to business reasons beyond my reach. Company A and B have entered the respective DOJ and DOE of my PF and EPS in EPFO database. I had also transferred my PF and EPS from Company A to Company B and both the PF accounts falls under the same and unique UAN assigned to me. However, my continuous service of Company A and Company B is falling short of 1 month to complete 5 years of continuous service.

                      Now I had joined Company C almost immediately after last day at Company B. The Company C falls under employee provident act but I was allowed to opt out of the PF and I did so. Thus, no EPFO account maintained for Company C.

                      Further progress as follows:

                      I had recently logged in my EPFO account and my Company B has put the Reason of Leaving as ‘CESSATION (SHORT SERVICE)’.

                      I tried to select ‘CLAIM 31, 19&10C’ option to withdraw my PF by verifying my Bank Account. I was able to proceed further and select the option ‘PF AND PENSION WITHDRAWAL (FORM – 19&10C)’ and it gives me a message ‘ELIGIBLE FOR PF AND PENSION WITHDRAWAL’. I have moved further and keyed in other details such as residential address and got the OTP generated via Aadhaar to confirm the claim. However, I had not proceed further because I do not know how the Tax will be deducted.

                      Could you help me with the following questions?

                      1. Although my continuous service with Company A and B is falling short of 5 years and post that I am employed by Company C where I had opted not to maintain PF, I am eligible to withdraw my PF and EPS. Hope this understanding is correct.

                      2. Since my employment in Company B was terminated due to business reasons beyond my reach, the PF and EPS amount will be Tax Free. Hope this understanding too is correct.

                      3. While doing online withdrawal, once I enter the OTP and my claim gets submitted, is PF authority going to deduct any Tax at Source? If so, how much %?

                      4. I am not able to see any option on the online procedure to mention that my employment in Company B was terminated due to business reasons beyond my reach as we see on the manual form. In this case, how PF authority will understand that that my employment was terminated?

                      5. Having understood my case, should I go online for PF and EPS withdrawal or should I go for manual where I had seen the option for the withdrawal reason as ‘employment termination due to the cause beyond the control of the member’ ?

                      My sincere thanks for all your support and help so far.

                      Regards

  80. My account is set on EPFO site. Adhaar and PAN are approved by my previous Employer A and their ‘‘Online Verification Status’ is ‘Verified by UIDAI’ and ‘Verified by ITD’ respectively.

    a) Hope this should be fine although Adhaar and PAN are approved by my previous Employer A around 2 months ago and not by my Current Employer B

    My Bank Accounts too were approved by my previous Employer A around 2 months ago and their ‘Online Verification Status’ is reflected as ‘N/A’

    b) Hope this too should be fine.
    c) What does ‘N/A’ means? Is it ‘Not Applicable’ meaning ‘Online Verification Status’ is Not Applicable (Not Required) for Bank Account data?

    Further, in my Employment History, Dates of Joining (DOJ EPF and DOJ EPS) are available for my previous Employer A, but Date of Exit (DOE EPF and DOE EPS) are not available for Employer A
    Dates of Joining (DOJ EPF and DOJ EPS) are available for my Current Employer B

    I got my PF transferred from Employer A to B through manual process and the transfer is successfully reflected in PF passbook for Employer B

    d) Do I need to get Date of Exit (DOE EPF and DOE EPS) updated for my previous Employer A explicitly?
    If that is not done, will it affect my PF withdrawal process as I formally leave my current Employer B on 15-March-2018 and, DOE EPF & DOE EPS (which in this case will be 15-March-2018) gets updates by my current Employer B

    Your blog on EPFO withdrawal is very helpful. Thanks.
    I had worked with company A starting 15-April-2013 and left it on 13-Feb-2016.I had joined new Company B on 15-Feb-2016. I got my PF transferred from Company A to B. I was about to complete my 5 years of continuous service by 15-April-2018 but my service got terminated in Jan-2018 and my last working day with Company B is 15-March-2018. I am falling short of 1 month to complete my 5 years of continuous service.
    My questions are as follows,
    a) Can I withdraw my full PF after my Last Working Day of 15-March-2018 (even I am falling short of 1 month to complete my 5 years of continuous service.) since my service was terminated due to business reasons beyond my control,
    b) Would my PF be taxable in my situation explained above
    c) Do I need to wait for 2 months post my last working day of 15-March-2018 for PF withdrawal.

  84. Dear Sir,

    While going for online withdrawal. I am seeing below options for claim processing. My total amount is over 50000 inc EPS.

    A). ONLY PF WITHDRAWAL(FORM 19)
    B). ONLY PENSION WITHDRAWAL(FORM 10C)

    Now I have some questions:
    1. If I go for option A, I assume I will get amount minus EPS(In this case it will be below 50K, So will this amount be taxable).
    2. What if I go for option A and after this financial year ends. Can I withdraw EPS amount again as online.
    3. Why I am not seeing FULL PF WITHDRAWAL option. Although my KYC has been done by employer already.

    Sir request you to respond asap. I need to apply the claim today itself.

    Thanks in anticipation.

  85. Dear Sir,
    I left company A (Trust based) in 2014.I joined company B and got the EPF transferred of A to B through online mode.Later i left company B also and applied for EPF and EPS withdrawal.The amount got credited in my account in two transactions.1st transaction comprises of total of EPF from company A and B(aound 69251 which is total of EPFs of both company).About 2nd transaction, i am not sure(12384),may comprise of EPS of company B and interest).
    I thought that i have got all my EPF and EPS,but recently i recalculated and found that i should have received around 104000 but received only 81635(including interest may be).This gap of around 26000 ,i have not received.I suspect that it is the EPS from company A which may not have been transferred to company B.

    Pls guide with your expertise if i need to claim this amount of 26000.And how can i claim.

    Company A
    EPF Employee 38,886 Received
    EPF Employer 11,900 Received
    EPS 26,986 Not received may be

    Company B
    EPF employee 14142 Received
    EPF employer 4323 Received
    EPS 7419 Received may be

    Amount received
    69251
    12384

    Thanks

    • Birendra-In case of EPS, if your service is less than 10 years, then you will get a partial amount based on how old your EPS is (As per Table D). Hence, I don’t think there is any mismatch. Also, do remember one thing that your EPS will never earn a single rupee of return. They just keep that amount with them.

      2) Don’t concentrate too much on TDS. Even if they deduct also, you can file IT return and claim the TDS back if your taxable income is less than the rate of TDS.
      3) YES.

  97. Hi,
    Thanks for such an informative stuff , I have been searching of this sort for a while.

    I left my job in July 2017 after working for 6 years. In august I moved to abroad for higher studies. considering that I need minimum 2 months to apply for PF , I could not do.

    I have my UAN activated with Adhar and PAN linked and verified. I was trying to withdraw my PF directly through UAN portal but it seems it needs one OTP send on my India phone , which does not support OTP in Australia.

    Is there a way , I can withdraw my PF by submitting my forms as mentioned above in your blog by scanning and sending it to India via a relative to EPF office.

    Is there any other work around to get the PF from Australia ?

    Please advise.

  98. Hi Basavaraj,

    I have to withdraw my pf without employer signature, as employer is not cooperating.
    I have a few queries regarding the same:
    My aadhar and PAN are seeded and linked to UAN but NOT verified by the employer.
    The employer is not helping me verify the same.
    Can i withdraw pf by visiting directly epfo office? Or would it not be possible without verifying my aadhar and PAN?
    I read in your blog that aadhar and PAN must be verified but employer is not helping. So i dont know if visiting pf office will also be helpful.
    I have completed 6 years of service and not working currently. Its been 2.5 months to my resignation but i dont have a relieving letter.

  101. Hi Sir,

    I had applied for PF withdrawal through my previous employer. My previous employer suggested that I can withdraw the PF only after 2 months. Hence I submitted all the forms to them and joined another company. They didn’t mention anything about 2 months of unemployment. After 2 months, my previous employer submitted all the necessary documents to EPF office and sent me the acknowledgement receipt. In my new company, I had given the same UAN number and there been a separate member Id created for the new company and for the past 2 months PF amount had been deposited to that account. Now, I came to know that we can only transfer if I joined another company. I would like to know what will happen to my PF withdrawal request. Will there be any fine or my request will be rejected ?

    Thanks & Regards,

  114. Hi,

    Appreciate you blogging.

    I am about to complete 10 years of service in a single company and wish to withdraw pf partially to be able to close a home loan with SBI. My city of residence is Pune and my EPFO is in Bangalore (PY/KRP), can I submit the partial withdrawal application in Pune EPFO?
    Do I need any letter from SBI stating the home loan balance principal/interest?
    Online it does not have an option for repaying home loan (just construction).

    Many thanks for your review.

    Thanks & Regards

        As per epfindia web site one can take advance against housing loan, please check Para 68bb in the first link.

        to re-verify checked a few other websites too

        Withdrawals from EPF A/c for Repayment of Home Loan section in the following link.
        https://www.relakhs.com/epf-partial-withdrawals-epf-loan-rules/

        As per the info available one can avail 36 months basic/PF balance lower value, to repay principal & interest portion of the Housing Loan after completing 10 years of continued PF association. Appreciate if you can enlighten with your expert opinion & advise as I am keen to be debt free using the PF corpus once I complete 10 years of service. Thanks a ton for your values time.

          • Thank you for the response again. I did have a look at the post you shared, it does explain to a great extent. I hope you don’t mind me continuing to the existing post since the query responses may benefit others too.

            Honestly I am looking to close the home loan entirely in order to be debt free and after completing 10 years of service(within a few months) my PF balance would be equivalent to the pending home loan amount. Using PF to pay EMI would not be that beneficial in my case.

            What interests me is the below asavailable on epf website under which states –

            Para 68BB: Withdrawal from the fund for repayment of loans in special cases

            Purpose of withdrawal – For refund of outstanding principal and interest of a loan for purposes under Para Loan from AGENCY 68BB

            Membership/period required – 10 years
            Amount Admissible / from share – 36 month’s basic wages and DA OR Total of employee 1 (one) Agency Certificate from the Agency indicating outstanding principal and interest.

            This would be ideal for my case. Appreciate if you can advise me on how to process this and/or other options available to me.

            From a salaried class worker burdened by EMI. 🙂

    Can you please suggest me if it is possible to withdraw my PF balance without going through my previous employer which will be long process, most importantly i will not be staying in India for that long. what is best way to proceed further.

  125. I have left my company and joined new one in Dec 2009 and joined another with different PF account number.
    I have linked current EPF account with UAN.
    I want to withdraw/Transfer the PF amount of previous account which is not linked with UAN.
    How shall I do this.

  126. if employer’s attestation is not needed then it becomes possible for employees to withdraw the epf amount while they are still in employment.

    Is there a way to avoid this?

  129. Hi
    Have applied for form 31 partial withdrawal on 6th September 2017 , no status update

    My KYC ( Aadhar, PAN, BANK Account) approved by employer, Have visited EPFO office and seeded my Aadhar, No update on my claim.

    UAN online help desk not working , Help line not working.
    Grievance cell does not know how online UAN works.

    Grievance cell response : Online application not received in this office, Contact employer for Approval for you claim.

    Claim applied from UAN portal does not require employer signature (DSC approval) for partial claim.,

    Looks like by the time i get my PF amount I will be a EPF consultant.

        Checked with employer he is not able to view any record for approval.

        Either UAN and EPF database is not in sink or there may be software issues

        KYC ( Aadhar,Pan,Bank) is approved and I have seeded my Aadhar in epfo office also
        Date of joining is also correct.

    My wife worked in CTS during 2013-14 and left the job for marriage. After that she joined in new firm where she didn’t add old UAN as she doesn’t aware of that. Now we want to withdraw the PF amount from that PF account.

    We are able to register in UAN and view the passbook information. Now while trying to seed AADHAR, we are facing issue mentioning mismatch data. Any idea how to proceed in this ?

    One more query – The bank account which was provided in the old PF account is now inactive. I added an active savings account to that. Is it possible to claim our PF amount into that newly added bank account.

            So now we have to take action item as mentioned above ? I heard that if aadhar is seeded in our UAN account we can apply for online claim (without employer assistance). Is that possible ?

    I live in Pune and worked with a firm here for 8 years. Thereafter i moved to a different company in Hyderabad, but quit in 2 months. Presently i am self-employed and would like to withdraw my PF amount. The problem is i have a UAN which is linked to bank and aadhaar, but i am not able to file online claim. This is because i have 2 PF numbers under a single UAN. The message i get is to transfer the pf balance from my first employment to the last one, but that’s not possible now. How do i withdraw my amount? And to which EPFO office (should it be Pune or Hyderabad) i submit my claim if i have to submit a composite form.

  151. Hi Sir,

    I have submitted attested Form-13(transfer document) to my Ex-Employer (which I have left recently). But when I have raised a complaint to EPFO online, it says that we haven’t received such form and to re-submit it.

    When I told him the same to the Ex-Employer (that I will resend the attested transfer document), he’s denying and not at all co-operating with me.

    Please take your precious time in answering these queries Sir.

    1) Will the Employer have a option that the Form-13 is received by the Employee or not? If they have such option, every time he’s denying and only approving the current PF rather than transferring old PF to current PF account.

    2) Can I withdraw at least current PF without employer’s signature rather than transferring?

    But I’m getting this error while checking the claim form under online services: AADHAAR is not authenticated from UIDAI. Please authenticate your AADHAAR by visiting nearest EPFO office.

    However, I can see that under KYC my aadhar, PAN, bank details show as approved.

    Please suggest me Sir.

However, I Couldn’t find the way to do so. When recently i check two of my old companies PF accounts they were into inoperative account. I scanned around the google no hope and no traces about the companies.I logged into EPFO and seek help from Help desk that doesn’t help either. From my very recent company i claimed my PF, Hopefully the company created my UAN number,Having that number i merged both the old pf accounts to that UAN still that dint help either.

  173. Dear Sir, i have got a new better job and switched to new job by submitting my resignation to old employer but they have not accepted it. Now im working in new company for past 2 months and i got my new PF number. I have the UAN no. linked with Aadhaar. Please guide me how to link my old pf account with the new pf account without old company approval.

      • Will that request be raised as an information or as an approval process to old company ? I dont think they will approve the online request. If they dont approve for 15 days then will that request get approved automatically. ? Is there any chance they will put this on hold purposefully?

  174. Hello Basavaraj, MY UAN with all respective details is activated. So I will be filling up UAN forms. But do I still need to fill UAN form 31? I don’t need any advances / loan. I want to withdraw the whole balance from PF account as presently an unemployed more than 60 days.

    Regarding form 15 G and 15 H , my service tenure is more than 5Yrs and more that 50K , So I hope I am not required to submit as UAN with KYC is updated and activated. But my doubt is how government will come to know about my >5Yrs service as its mix of both my last worked company with previous company? Would be happy if you can help me.

    • Krishnan-Advance withdrawal form not required but withdrawal form is need. Yes, Form 15G/15H not required in your case. The overall contribution in a EPF account will enough to get the idea of how old is your EPF account.

  188. Hi Basavaraj,

    I’ve to withdraw Pf from my last 3 organisations,, not working anywhere at the moment.. I’m confused as UAN wasn’t generated for any of the companies.. i generated it myself,, It’s activated too.. It has details of the 1st org where I worked.. KYC is also updated.. The question is “How to fill PF form online?”
    For the other 2 companies no details are updated on the UAN member portal.. getting signature is bit difficult as I was working in Pune & not I’m in Delhi.. The question is “How to withdraw PF from the other 2 org?”

    Also, How much time will it take for the amount to come in both cases?

Now the EPF official is saying that I need to send the Bank Pass book copy through the employer of my previous company to them (EPF Office) to authenticate the cheque leaf.

    I told I will sent another cancelled cheque leaf with its back side signed. But they are simply repeating the above step again and again.

    I am not understanding this procedure. when I asked its purpose to them, Since I have used UAN based forms what is the requirement of employer authentication. ?
    What is your suggestion for this? Is it correct as per law.

    • Gopal-1) If UAN created then you can quote the same at new employment and continue old EPF.
      2) Whether the current employer created UAN?

      • Dear Sir, My scenario is like this ;

        I have worked with total of 3 organisations & relieved from all of three and joined with 4th organisation which I’m currently working.

        I have created UAN in my 3rd organisation and provided the same UAN to 4th organisation. 4th organisation created new PF number and linked the same under my old UAN.

        Now I’m planning to resign from my 4th organisation and willing to join with 5th organisation.

        where my question is; if I have not relieved properly from my 4th organisation, will i be able to get transfer the PF amount of 4th organisation to 5th organisation PF ID under same UAN.

        please clarify…

  218. Dear Mr.Basavaraj

    Kindly advise. I have worked in organization “A” for 5 years and then resigned in 1999 to start my own business. Organization A got merged with organization B and subsequently Organization B has been taken over by organization C, leaving to clue whom to contact for my PF withdrawal. During so many years i was just following up with organization “C” for my PF but not getting any co operation. Last year, I personally visited the EPFO – Regional Office at Bandra / Mumbai and have found that my PF account is lying inoperative.

    I have submitted the following application forms-
    1) Claim Form no 19 & 10C duly attested by my Bank Manager -SBI
    2) Cancelled Cheque copy
    3) All relevant documents like – Adhar Card, Pan card, Voter ID, Passport, Copy of EPFO Account statement provided by my erstwhile employer, salary slips, duly attested by my banker
    4) Self declaration certificate -regarding non employment duly attested by my banker -SBI
    I have submitted all these documents on 21st February,2016 personally by visiting Bandra EPFO and everything was done as per guidance given by EPFO office as i stay at Kolkata.

    on 18th march, 2016, all the documents were returned back to my address at Kolkata alongwith a cover letter addressed to my erstwhile employer- organization”A” and copy was marked to me – the letters says, Claim has been rejected and i have to submit non employment certificate.\

    By checking with them over phone i was told that i have to furnish a declaration on a stamp paper which is to be notorized by magistrate but they asked me to collect the format from kolkata RO of EPFO. I am not getting the format from Kolkata nor from Mumbai. Kindly advise.

    You KYC have been verified by your employer using digital signatures.

  224. I withdrew my old PF accumulations of 4 employers in different parts of India. Since Dec. 1998 I continued with a single organisation, with all my PF contributions regularly. Does withdrawal of Old PF Contributions, have any impact on my pension calculation. Because as such I understand, in present scenario, the pension is a meager amount for private sector employees.

    1)But When i approached EPFO office they asked my marriage invitation card .Is that necessary to submit marriage card???

    2)Is it possible that can i get the amount by this month????

    3)Instead of cancelled check can i provide my bank e-statement copy which contains all my account details including IFSC.

    • Priya-Instead of advancing from EPF, why can’t you withdraw the EPF fully? 1) If your intention is to take advance, yes the documents are necessary. 2) Getting within a month or not is purely procedural issue. I can’t claim that. 3) YES.

    I have worked 2.5 yrs in a IT Company located in Bangalore and left in 2013. Now as per your instructions I have submitted Form 19C UAN Based, Cancelled Cheque, PAN Card Copy, Adhar Copy and Bank Account Statement and cover letter. And my UAN is also activated and PAN, Aadhar & Bank Account etc all KYC are verified by the employer.
    I have also recieved the Claim id on my mobile saying its under process But after some days when I checked the EPF Withdrawal status online it says… Claim ID : BGBNG160900014187
    Status : Claim Form 19 for PF Settlement AGAINST Member Account No (BGBNG00416530000000969) has been rejected.
    Reason of rejection: CERTIFICATE ENCLOSED IS IMPROPER

    Sir, Could you please let me know for what reason they have rejected or what sort of certificate is improper.

    I would like to again reiterate that I have submit only UAN Based form 19 with other required xerox copies.

      • Sir, First of all thanks for the reply. I have gone through your almost all posts so I thought to re-claim PF amount again.
        For this, If possible please clarify my some more doubts.

        1) As I am working right now in a Govt Sector wherein there is no EPF Account for Employees instead of that we have NPS Account for PF and all.
        So Do I have to declare about non-employment under any organization having another EPF Account.
        If yes, then how..Is there any specific format/form for this declaration. ??

        2) Do I need to Submit UAN Based 10C and UAN 19 Forms both for PF Claim?
        3) Do I need to submit 15G even my income in earlier organisation was less than 2.5lacs per annum.??

        It would be more helpful if you clear my above doubts. Thanks in advance.
        Because my claim has been rejected 2 times and I am unable to find out the exact reason. EPF Banglore officials are not picking calls, not confirming the exact reason for rejection of claim.
        As earlier I said Just simply they mentioned Reason of rejection: CERTIFICATE ENCLOSED IS IMPROPER

        • Shashikant-1) You mean to say for withdrawing the existing EPF?

                  PF CLAIM ID: BGBNG160900014187 has been rejected by giving the remarks :
                  SINCE THIS IS A PF EXEMPTED ESTABLISHMENT SUBMIT THE CLAIM F-19 TO THE EMPLOYER FOR NEEDFUL ACTION.

                  So, Now I have raised my complaint to EPF Grievance online and got the Registration Number and also I mentioned clearly in the Complaint that If employer would have been agreed to settle the claim then why would I wait for 3 years and why should I approach with UAN Documents directly to EPFO Regional Office etc.

                  And, Also I am thinking to file an RTI regarding same matter. Please advise me whether I should take this step or suggest any other way (if any) because now its clearly understood they are purposely not giving EPF amount.

                      Dear Sir/Madam,
                      This is with reference to your Grievance registered vide Registration Number ROBGL/E/2016/07796.
                      It is informed that your grievance is being treated as non-actionable due to the following reason(s):
                      As KN/41653 is exempted establishment only EPS will be maintained by the PF office. Regarding PF you are requested to contact your Trust.( PF money cannot be paid in r/o PF exempted establishments as it is not maintained by the PF office.)

                      Even though i had clearly mentioned in the Grievance that Employer denied to settle the claim and thats why I am approaching to you directly. etc.

                      Now It is clear to me that neither Employer taking any step to settle the claim nor EPF People.

                      In this situation please advise me the next best step should be taken in this matter.

    I had worked in an organisation for more than NINE (9) Years & left the jobs 3 months back and presently not doing any job as well since then..
    Now I want to withdraw my PF amount. I already have an registered UAN account and my bank detail & Aadhaar details has been verified by my employer. PAN details are also verified

    Now please confirm is there any rule that my PF form will first go to the company for the attestation before the release of my PF amount in my bank account OR company attestation is not mandatory/ required if I have UAN details verified by company itself, i.e. I can directly apply for PF withdrawal.

    My company will not be supporting me in this regard as they have not given me my experience letter & Gratuity money… …

    Kindly suggest as soon as possible, tomorrow I will be going to PF office.

  264. Hi Basavaraj,

    Your blog is very useful. Please keep posting more.
    I have a query about PF advance for FLAT purchase.
    I understood that I have to apply for the same through my employer before the registration of the flat. What happens if the amount crediting into my bank account happens after I have completely paid the full amount to the seller/builder ? As the builder may not wait and the PF advance might get delayed, I might be forced to take a loan from relatives/friends etc. and pay off my builder. In this scenario, can I use the PF advance which may get credited after I pay off the builder to repay the loan taken from friends/relatives ? or use it for House interiors ?

    After receiving the advance, are we supposed to show any proof that I have used the money to pay off my builder only ?
    Can you throw some light on this, please ?

    Is there another way or a workaround to this solution? Will a sign from a gazetted officer or my bank manager stating that Madhu Rangappa and Madhu R are the same person help?
