EPF Composite Claim Form -Single form to withdraw EPF without employer

EPFO recently introduced the EPF Composite Claim Form. This is a single form for all types of withdrawal (including partial or advance withdrawal) with or without employer signature.

Last year, EPFO introduced the UAN based EPF and EPS withdrawal forms to simplify the process (New EPF Withdrawal Forms-Withdraw without employer signature). To simplify the process, now the single form is introduced as EPF Composite Claim Form.

This will replace the existing Forms 19, Form 10C and Form 31. Form 19 is used for EPF final settlement, Form 10C is used for EPS withdrawal and Form 31 is used for EPF partial withdrawal.  are accepted for PF Final Settlement, EPS Pension.

Last year the forms were changed to UAN based Form 19, Form 10C and Form 31. If your EPF account is UAN based, then you can easily withdraw the EPF without employer signature. These UAN forms can be used if your EPF is UAN activated with KYC details like Aadhar number, Bank Account, and other KYC details have been linked to your UAN.

Let me explain the same from below image the process.EPF Withdrawal Process

You noticed that even though the process is improved by removing employer in UAN based EPF withdrawal, it still complicated due to number of forms involved.

Hence, now EPFO come up with single EPF Composite Claim Form which you can use for EPF withdrawal, partial withdrawal, advance, and EPS withdrawal.

EPF Composite Claim Form Types

There are two types of forms.

1) EPF Composite Claim Form (Aadhar)

If your UAN has been linked with Aadhar and bank details, this form can be submitted for all types of EPF withdrawals. The attestation of an employer is not required and this form can be submitted to EPFO directly.

2) EPF Composite Claim Form (Non-Aadhar)

If your UAN has not yet been linked with Aadhar and bank details, this form can be submitted for all types of EPF withdrawals. The attestation of an employer is required and the form has to routed through an employer.

When can you use EPF Composite Claim Forms?

This EPF Composite Claim Form can be used for below purpose.

# EPF Final Settlement

# EPF Partial or Advance withdrawals for purposes like;

  • Housing Loan, Purchase of site, Construction of house, renovation of house etc.,
  • Medical treatment of self/family member
  • One year before retirement
  • Investment in Varistha Pension Bima Yojana
  • Marriage of self / son / daughter / brother / sister etc.,

# EPS Pension Withdrawal

EPF Withdrawal Process using EPF Composite Claim Form (Aadhaar and Non-Aadhaar)

Now the process of withdrawal using EPF Composite Claim Form will be as below.EPF Withdrawal Process using EPF Composite Claim Form

You noticed that if your Bank Account and Aadhaar Card is linked to your UAN number then it is the easiest process to withdraw the EPF or EPS.

# You can download the new single page EPF Composite Claim Form (Non-Aadhaar). Below is the sample image of the form.Download EPF Composite Claim Form (Non-Aadhaar)

EPF Partial Withdrawals & New Instructions (Effective from February 2017)

# As of now, if you want to take advance or loan from EPF, then you have to submit the ‘Declaration Form’ along with Form 31 or Form 31 (UAN). However, with the introduction of EPF Composite Claim Form, you no need to submit such declaration.

# You no need to submit any other documents or certificate along with EPF Composite Claim Form for the purpose of withdrawals like Housing loan, Marriage, construction of house and education expenses. Instead of this, you have to self-certify the Common withdrawal form.

# Submission of EPF Composite Claim Form (Aadhar) / (EPF Composite Claim form (non-Aadhar) is construed as ‘self-certification’ for the above said partial withdrawals, for which no document would be required to be submitted to the EPFO offices.

Hope this much information is enough to use this newly launched single page EPF Composite Claim Form at ease.

    PF amount as per EPFO passbook I got but the problem is with pension amount Sir. Pension amount as per the EPFO passbook is 7000 but I got less Sir. 1125rs difference.

    Because my PF along with pension is less than 25K that’s why will it get deducted in my pension?

    • Dear Glory,
      If your service is less than 10 years, then you will never get the full EPS. They pay you based on the Table D calculation.

  8. Hello Sir,

    My husband passed away recently and his office is based out of Bangalore whereas we are in Hyd. Their office has sent me 3 copies of Composite Death claim for PF and asked to sign and send them whereas one of my acquintances said that Form 10D,Form 20, Form 5IF and composite deathclaim form need to be submitted. Which is right procedure. Also I do not know if his PF account is linked to his Aadhar or not is it ok. One more thing is should employer sign on this document or can I at my end fill in all details, attached required docs and send to EPFO, if yes, whether in HYD or BLR.

  10. Hi Sir,
    My name is Saifuddin.
    I resigned my Job on Jan 11th 2019. When I tried to withdraw my PF amount after 60 days online, it is showing an error that DOE of EPF is incorrect. Then I asked my company for Joint Declaration form for correcting the DOE and sent it to PF office through courier. But still now there is no response from them. When i tried to raise an issue through Grievance cell, they are giving a reply stating to submit the Form again.

    Please help me to sort this issue out.

  12. Even for composite claim form non aadhar(physical mode), do I need to re-upload PAN and Aadhar details in UAN?
    Previously I have mentioned to you in the earlier post that I have changed my name and Fathers name in Aadhar and PAN recently.
    Second question, employer is saying they won’t send the forms to PF office. They have asked me to send. Can I send the forms to PF office after employers attestation?

    Third question, both PAN and Aadhar or only Aadhar should be updated in UAN under KYC for PF less than 50K?
    Fourth question, KYC approvals are done by employers or EPFO?

    Reply
    • Dear Glory,
      It is always best first to update your KYC and then proceeds for the withdrawal. Yes, you can do so by sending on your own. Both PAN and Aadhaar should be updated. Final approval of KYC is by EPFO.

        I told you Sir earlier that I have changed my name and Fathers name in Aadhar and PAN cards. So when I tried to resubmit the new or changed details in UAN under KYC. The approval is going to 2nd company employer. Because the UAN is linked to second company Sir. Now what to do?

  13. Previously my employer has approved my aadhar and PAN details in UAN.

    But recently I have changed my name and Fathers name in my Aadhar and PAN.

    EPFO has also approved my name and father’s name in EPFO database.

    So in UAN, now it is showing as Aadhar and PAN Not Available.

    So do I need to resubmit my Aadhar and PAN details in UAN under KYC?

    Second question, my PF is 25000. Even then do I need to update my PAN details in UAN?

    Reply
    • Dear Glory,
      Yes, it is better to resubmit for UAN KYC. Your EPF amount in no way related to KYC update. It is mandatory to update the KYC details.

  29. Dear Sir,

    I have few queries and they are as follow:

    1. I worked for two of the companies and one was in hyderabad and then moved to Mumbai for work for the 2nd one.
    2. I now had 2 EPF accounts ( but UAN number is Unique and the PF office for the previous one is in Hyderabad and Mumbai was in Pune ),

    I mistakenly have withdrawn the amount from the 2nd company online which was in Mumbai and I thought that my previous PF amount had got transferred automatically since it is an online one.

    3. Now when I got to know that my previous PF money is still lying with the previous EPF account then I had to apply for the transfer online and when I applied for the transfer, I got a form 13 and on the form they mentioned that I have to sign and send it to the previous employer.

    I would like to know that after sending Form 13 to the previous employer, will the previous employer need to send these documents to PF office

    or can they do online or do they need to do it manually?

    How much time does it needed. Can I withdraw it now as I had already applied for the transfer of EPF online?

    • Shruti-If the organization comes under EPF rules, then you have to be a member of EPF. However, during joining itself, your salary (Basic+DA) is more than Rs.15,000 a month, then you can say NO to EPF.

  48. Hello Sir,Congratulations for doing excellent knowledge sharing blog

    I have a query about PF settlement . One of my friend’s last working day in her previous company was nov.30th and she agreed to join another company on 1st december. But suddenly her previous company extended her notice period to one month more. Since she had formally joined the new company,she had to continue there. But due to technical requirement she worked to previous company with late shifts and they paid her salary with PF for the month of December fully. She wants to close that account and wants to open a new PF account for new company.
    Now question is, will it be okay if her new company also pays PF contribution for the month of December?
    Will there be any problem with UIN number if she closes old account and apply for new account?
    Please suggest.

    • Uma-“will it be okay if her new company also pays PF contribution for the month of December?”-No problem. Regarding UAN, she can use the same UAN.

  50. Hi Mr. Basavaraj Tonagatti, thank you for the detailed articles and information that you share. Can you please advise me for the following situation. I have worked with multiple employers over the last approximately 20 years and have never had gap in my employment. I am currently employed and have a UAN for my present employer. My previous PF accounts were all non-Trust held. They were all before UAN and hence are not linked to my UAN nor withdrawn.

    What are the options before me. Can I withdraw each of these old PF amounts? Do I have to get them transferred to the current employer? In one company I worked for 4 months, another 11 months and the others at least above a year each.

    Thanks,

        So my question is:
        Will there be any tax to be levied if PF amount is less than 50 thosand and PAN is not verified ,also i submitted thr PF withdrawal via online mode

        Please suggest,how i can revoke the PF withdrawal ,in case if tax is levied on PF withdrwal.

        • Vijendra-If you not submit the PAN, then they will deduct the TDS. However, if your EPF account is more than 5 years, then it is tax-free and if it less than that, then taxable income for you. You can claim the TDS by filing IT return.

  56. Hi Sir,

    I have 8 years+ continuous service and currently working in a company and this company is not part of EPFO.

    I have applied for PF final settlement (19C) and EPS (10C). I need clarification on below two points:

    1. For 19c and 10c they have approved 50% of my total amount even I have applied for final settlement. I checked my PF Passbook and its showing 50% amount as current balance. Why so?
    2. Today, I got 50% approved amount but 10% TDS has been deducted. As I have 8 years+ continuous service than why this 10% TSD has been deducted. Please let know if I can get back this 10% TSD amount.

    Please explain above to points.

    Thanks
    Ravi

    Reply
    • Ravi-1) They send the payment in two installments. Hence, wait and check later.
      2) You have to file IT return and get back it claiming as this income is tax-free for you as you completed more than 5 years of EPF.

      • Thanks for the information…!!

        They approved 415197 and after deducting 10% they have credited 373677 in my account.

        In this case which amount I need to show as tax free while filing IT returns.

        As you said they do in two installments, when I submit the form, I got a claim Id and against that claim id they approved some amount (around 50% of total PF amount) and this approved amount has both the parts Employee and Employer.

        It’s not like that they have approved Employee part and not the Employer part.

        Do I need to submit the form again? If not, generally how long they will take to approve the rest of the amount?

  65. Hi,

    I worked with an MNC from 2006-2012, recently on 05th December 2018 i submitted my Form19 and affidavits with my ex-employer. They asked me to create UAN meanwhile he will process the PF docs with EPFO office in hyderabad.. its been more than month, he is advising that the EPFO office is not accepting the dcuments since the Telangana split issue and until even today they’re not accepting. I’ve done my complete research online and it seems the ex-employer gave me incorrect info, the UAN has to be generated by EMPLOYER itself. At present I have my UAN id linked with Aadhar Card however the Bank details and KYC am unable to update as it shows an error message – ‘ This functionality will be available, once your UAN is linked to any establishment.’
    I sent a mail to the EPFO HYD head and the helpdesk team – the response from them is they haven’t received any forms yet.

    Questions:
    1- Is it possible for a EPFO not to accept forms for 2MONTHS?

    2. Whom and how do I approach a higher authority to complain this situation? Anyone in Central govt. that I can approach and escalate?

    3. How do I link the Establishment with my UAN by myself online?

    I have submitted the Aadhar based Claim downloaded from your link and and submitted it to the PF office for final settlement. As my KYC and Bank account was already done , so the claim was settled within a week. However , as I have completed 12 years with my previous employer, I cannot withdraw the pension portion. Initially the PRO officer said that as I have submitted the Aadhar based composite form , no separate 10C form is required for issueing pension scheme certificate. However, when I filed a grievance , they replied that 10C is not submitted. The claim was settled on 19th September, 2017. What should I do?

    I have worked in two companies, I want to withdraw both the PF amounts using CCF non-aadhar procedure instead of CCF aadhar.

    But the EPFO told me today that there should not be two PF accounts.

    My question is, can I apply for withdrawal by going to both the companies or do I need to transfer the PF amount from one company to another and then apply for withdrawal?

    Please suggest me.

      Reply
      • As I have said in my previous comments that I have worked in two companies A&B and have 2 EPF accounts.

        And moreover I have visited the EPFO office, they have said that transfer is not possible as you have resigned from the company. (Only if you are working in a company, you can transfer otherwise you cannot).

        I have consulted the concerned PF person of my company, she told if you withdraw Company’s B PF using a single UAN (which is linked to both the EPF accounts), you cannot withdraw using the same UAN to withdraw Company’s A PF.

        And she was sure of the alternative.

        My question is, if I have withdrawn Company’s B PF using the UAN, how will I get Company’s A PF? or What’s the other alternative?

        Please suggest me.

            And she have asked me to generate new UAN and link it to Company’s A PF. But I have already have UAN linked to both the PFs (company A&B).

            When I check “know your uan status”, it already says UAN (the UAN which is linked to both the PF accounts ) is active and it has been activated. And moreover under “our services- for citizens link” is not working. How can I generate a new UAN?

As you shared in your one of blogs, employer not updated exit date and even I haven’t shared my experience details with present employer. Due to this reason I got two UAN, instead of transferring I would like to withdraw amount from previous company.

    I have bank, pan card and aadhar details approved in KYC and UAN is also linked. I have worked in two companies (A&B).

    Since company B (which I have left) is not co-operating, can I withdraw whole PF amount (PF amount of both A&B companies) using the Composite Claim Form? or is it necessary for me to transfer A’s company amount to B’s company and then apply for withdrawal? But I have been unemployed for more than 2 months.

    i.e. Can I go directly to EPFO office and submit Composite Claim Form to get both companies (A&B) PFs without the involvement of the employers? or should I apply for transfer ? What should be done Sir?

    Please suggest me Sir.

        Since merging requires the approval of employer. I don’t want to route it through an employer as he’s not co-operating with me Sir.

    Kindly tell me;
    (1) How can I apply for the final settlement?

    I joined from company A to Company B 2 months back. Company A uses their own PF trust account. My PF has not been transferred yet from A to B. Also on EPFO website my Aadhar details were not added. Recently , i needed some funds due to medical emergency hence decided for PF withdrawal. So I went on the EPFO page and tried updating my Aadhar information. It went into pending state and is like that till now.

    So , I went to my current employer B and asked them to approve the request. They said that the tool which helps them to approve such requests is not working for more than 2 months now. They said many companies are facing the same problem. They asked me that they can help me with the withdrawal using the Composite Non Aadhar form but the issue is there will not be sufficient funds in new PF account (as i said corpus lies with PF trust of company A). In this situation please suggest what I should do ?? Kindly help sir. Thanks…

    This is really informative. I am facing a typical problem. I would require to withdraw from EPF for purchasing house. But there are some incorrect details in EPF records (father surname and date of leaving) without correcting which my present employer is not agreeing to take forward my part withdrawal application. On the other hand my dates for registration for my new home is nearing and I am unable to arrange funds from any other source unless I ask from my friends and relatives (which I do not want to). I have already send the joint declaration form for corrections. But is it true that even if the employer verifies my part withdrawal form (composite claim form) the EPF can reject my claim. Please suggest.

        • Dear Jaya,
          Your advance withdrawal towards house purchase not depends on the PAN number linking. But it is better to link it by visiting the regional EPFO.

  123. Hello Sir,

    You are doing a great job through your blog.
    I have a query regarding partial PF withdrawal.
    I want to perform a partial withdrawal from my PF for housing.
    Do we need to submit the forms by post to concerned PF office or direct form submission is needed?.

    Thanks

  124. Hi,

    I have resigned from my previous organisation and I am currently working with another company.

    Both my previous PF member ID and my current company member ID is registered/linked under same UAN. Will i be able to withdraw my PF amount of my previous organisation in this case.

    Please guide me with the possibilities.

  126. Hi Basavaraj,
    Thank you for the reply that I have to use non-Aadhar unified form. But can I submit directly to PF Office by skipping employer using the non -Aadhar form ?

    Hi Basavaraj,

    My UAN is activated and employer has only completed Bank account update for KYC as per EPFO e-sewa site.
    I cannot see any PF amount reflecting in Service History but my salary slips have the PF amount details.

    I have updated AAdhar and PAN details myself in UAN Site and they are showing pending KYC.

    UAN Card shows KYC done but Aadhar and PAN are not yet verified by employer.

    I have linked my Aadhar to the same bank account myself by visiting the bank.

    How can I withdraw PF ( which form I have to use if I don’t want to go through employer)? I am not working for 3 months now. I want to withdraw full amount. Which forms I need to submit( 15G, aadhar/non-aadhar etc).

    Also don’t know why the PF amount is not visible. Can you help?

    Regards,

    • Chitrita-As your Aadhaar is not linked to UAN, you have to route the form through an employer ONLY.

  127. Hi Basavaraj,

    First of all …Keep up your good work!!

    I am unemployed since Dec 2016 and I am planning to withdraw my PF.

    I have my UAN activated and KYC details updated including Aadhar, PAN and Bank Details.

    But the IFSC Code for my Bank Account is Incorrectly Updated.

    In the UAN Member Portal @ https://unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/memberinterface/

    When I tried to update the same account with correct IFSC, it says same account cannot be added twice.

    When I added a new bank account, it is in PENDING status. It did not ask to upload any scanned copy of the Bank details.

    Could you please help me with this:

    # Will the new bank details be added to the UAN ?
    If not
    # What else can I do to update my KYC Details without the employer verification.

    The UAN Helpdesk link @ http://59.180.231.60:9094/UANHD/ is not available.

    The TollFree Number 1800118005 is always either busy or invalid.

    Kindly Help!!

  129. Hi Basavaraj,

    I haven’t received pension certificate from previous 2 organisation, where I worked for 5+ years and 6 months respectively (have got the PF transferred though). Also, my UAN is not linked with Aadhar or any bank. As per your article, I believe I have to fill up Composite Claim Form (Non Aadhar) for pension but I have a few queries:

    1. Do I have to send the filled form to EPFO or previous employers? If it is to be sent to EPFO, then how would they know about my previous employers? Form does not ask for employer details.

    2. The form asks to declare that the member is not employed for 2 months. Of course in my case it is ‘No’ but what are the implications if the member is employed.

    Reply
    • Nitisha-1) Yes to the previous employer if they are not merged with current EPF. Either you send to last employer or to EPFO. EPFO number enough to track the employer details.
      2) You are not eligible to withdraw legally.

      Reply
      • In that case, I’m lost again. My situation is- I’m currently working with 3rd employer. At 3rd employment only, I got PF transferred from previous 2 employers, assuming that the EPS will get transferred too. But the pension did not get transferred (validated by PF passbook).

        I don’t need the funds right now hence, do not want to withdraw pension but I do want to consolidate pension from all the 3 employers so as to have control over my savings. Please guide me how to consolidate the EPS or how to get scheme certificates from previous employers/ EPFO.

        Reply
        • Nitisha-EPS will never get transferred. EPFO just update your service records. You will get scheme certificate once you complete 10 years of service.

  130. Dear Basavaraj,

    I have been unemployed since 4 months and my Aadhaar details is not linked with UAN. To withdraw my Final settlement, PF office told me that i can only avail employee contribution. Balance after retirement period. My question is

    1. can i chose composite Form ( Non-aadhaar) ?
    2. If yes, which option do i need to select from reasons for PF withdrawal ? My employer has agreed for signing the application too.
    3. Do i need to provide any declaration on non-employment
    4. Do i need to enclose 15G form?

    Thanks.

    Reply
    • Prasad-It is false that employer contribution be claimed at retirement ONLY. You can withdraw both now. You can choose composite claim form and claim. Yes, if you are eligible for filling Form 15G, then you have to submit it.

      • Thanks so much. Am i right in saying that 15G is applicable only if withdrawal is less than 2.5Lacs ?

  135. Hi,

    First of all, thank you for sharing this article. This is very helpful.

    I wanted to check what are the next steps in submitting the form to EPFO office as an employer is not the channel anymore. Do I need to visit the EPFO office and submit the form or can I courier the form.

    Also, the website has changed slightly and now it is unified epfo website. I have tried updating my aadhar details but no luck- my bank and PAN KYC is already completed- Any guidance?

  136. Mr. Basavaraj, I’d like to thank you for your valuable articles on these subjects. I’d like to know if you have any advice for my case. I recently submitted a claim to withdraw my PF account. Now this particular PF account has been lying dormant for over 3 years now, you see what happened was that the company I was working for at that time closed down operations. They had applied for the PF withdrawal on my behalf then but was rejected and sadly the rejection letter went to the old address of the office, as such I was not aware of it.

    It was only recently that I realized that I had such a PF account. So, I began the process of claiming it. However as mentioned before my employer no longer exists. So I had the forms 19 and 10c attested by my Bank Manager as the EPFO rules suggest. I had submitted these documents at the start of February of this year and I’ve just gotten a message from the EPFO office mentioning that my claim has been rejected due to “Reason of rejection: AUTHORISED OFFICERs SIGNATURE NOT TALLYING” now as you can tell this has confused me to no end. They also left this “Remarks by DA/AO:KINDLY ATTESTED IN THE CLAIM FORM 19 AND 10C FROM THE EMPLOYER WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT SEAL/OK”

    I’d appreciate any advice you can give me regarding this matter.

    Kind Regards,

    Shashank

    I left my job in april 2016 and i did not had my Aadhar number that time. I have got my UAN activated through EPF WEBSITE as it was mentioned on my salary slip. How can I get my aadhar number linked to my EPF ac to withdraw it ? Do I need to contact my last employer or is there a way to do it online so that i can withdraw my EPF amount without visiting my last employer?
