  1. Dear Sir,

    Myself James Joseph wish to withdraw my EPF & EPS for my previous company. But while going through the UAN portal we can’t make the both withdrawals together. I think need to do separately. In this case first I need to do EPF withdrawal & then again shall I need to place another claim for EPS also. Please help me.

    Currently I have around 1,80,000 in EPF & 85,000 in EPS. So can I withdraw the full amount. Help me.

  2. I have joined organization on 26 Oct 1991 but I left the organization and withdrawal my PF but didn’t withdrawal my FPS. Then I rejoin the same organization in 06 Apr 1998 now my DOJ EPF is 06 Apr 1998 and DOJ FPS 26 Oct 1991 reflecting in PF portal.
    I have applied for advanced PF withdrawal but same is rejected due to joining date not tallied as per KYC. Please suggest what I should do now.

    Reply
    • Dear Pk
      Date of joining of fps will always be 26 Oct 1991 .What you should look is what is date of joining of Eps which should be 6th Apr 1998.
      Why rejected is hard to say and dates i feel should not be an issue.

    • Dear Lajara

      Exit date of Eps comes automatically on entering epf exit date automatically the system will put the same date.
      If you are over 58 when exiting epf then eps will be put by the system after calculating 58 years from date of birth.

    • Dear Sherry

      There can be only 2 reasons.
      There is no contribution to EPS or you have worked over 10 years then you are not eligible to claim EPS .

  5. Hello Sir,

    How can we see history of our employment prior to UAN? On EPF portal, I can see my service record starting 2015 only (when UAN was issued to me). Though I have done PF xfer from previous employer to current employer successfully, I am unable to see EPS related data for my service history (when UAN doesn’t used to exist) and hence unable to withdraw EPS contributed before UAN.

    Reply
    • Dear Ankit Jain

      Whatever your service was before Uan started you cannot see.If transfer is done successfully from one employer to the next your service details automatically get transferred to the new employer and the moment your total service is more than 9 years 6 months you cannot take out Eps and will have to claim reduced pension at 50 or normal pension at 58. From your side when you make the claim you should be aware of your total years of service .

      Reply
    • Dear Ankit

      When you do a successful transfer of p.f. your service details which is Eps gets transferred automatically to the new employer .This is not visible to you.

      No need to worry. If you transferred your earlier EPF to new one, then your EPS will also follow.

  6. Left the job on May 20, 2020 and I have around 12 years PF Contribution.Now I would like to withdraw the amount but the interest is not credited yet in my PF account.

    Could I get the interest of Last year along with this withdrawal or I have to wait for interest to be credited in my account,In such cases could I get the interest for such period. last year interest was credited on October 2019.

    Can Apply for EPS withdrawal also

    Reply
    • Dear Rajesh
      You will get last year’s interest if this years interest is not credited to your company at the time of your claim.
      Regarding Eps since you have worked more than 10 years you will get deferred pension at 50 or normal pension at 58.

  7. Hi Sir, I have not received interest component for 2 years in a row now.. I have written to the grievance cell a few times, but they only say that interest for previous years is yet to be settled. I’m now in a situation that I need to fully withdraw my PF balance. If I do so now will they credit my interest component before processing my withdrawal or will I lose that amount? Its a very substantial amount and I’ worried. Please advice

      • Thanks for your reply. Just so that I understand this clearly, did you mean that they will eventually credit interest and then after that I could withdraw OR they will process the interest dues along with my withdrawal request?

  9. Hello Basavaraj,

    My claim is rejected for following reason
    ´Your Claim [ Claim Id – GNGGN190750106876] has been rejected due to : 1) DOJ FOR PREVIOUS TRANSFER IN PF AND EPS DIFFERS, CLARIFY 2) CERTIFICATE ENCLOSED IS IMPROPER´.
    Since my previous service history is not added in the UAN login (however amount from the previous PF is already transferred), I put DOJ as what is shown in UAN login (the date when I joined my current organization). Can you please tell me if I need to give DOJ as actual joining date of EPF (which is 16/08/2011 but not shown in UAN portal) or date of joining 15.10.2012 (shown in UAN where previous history is missing). OR do I need to file Grivence to get something corrected. Please advice.

  40. Hi Basavaraj,

    Morning!

    I am totally confused with EPS and EPF, though I have got some understanding on both and their criteria, I have a few doubts and hopefully you will answer them.

    I have worked for 6.5 years in my previous organisation and I withdrew my PF before quitting by claiming it online on UAN portal.

    Its been 6 months that I have joined a new organisation and I got to know about EPS, until which I had no clue that EPS existed also. My questions are:

    1. Since EPF and EPO contributions are separate, will the claims to be made towards each are separate? As informed above, I have withdrawn PF while I was in previous org so does this mean I have got only the PF share and not the EPS amount?

    2. In the above case ( point 1) how can I withdraw my EPS? and how do I check my EPS balance ?

    3. In case I withdraw my EPS by not opting for scheme certificate, what happens after withdrawal? will my service gets reset and starts from 1st year since i lose the existing years of service due to EPS withdrawal? will the EPS still gets contributed by employer post withdrawal?

    Note: I started working since july 2010

    Reply
    • Dear Tejaswini,
      1) Yes, they are separate and you have to claim them separately.
      2) You have to apply for EPS separately. Regarding the balance, you can check it in the passbook.
      3) If you withdraw EPS, your new EPS (which is attached with new EPF) will show the service history freshly without adding the past history of your old EPS.

      • Basavaraj,

        Thanks a mill for the reply, May I please ask my last few questions……

        1. In umang app, for my previous PF account it is showing the details as below
        employee share : 6380
        employer share: 51116
        pension contribution : 72080

        since i had withdrawn PF already, under withdrawal section it is showing :

        claim against PARA 68B(1) (C)
        employee share : 166000
        employer share : 34000

        Q1: so can you please clarify what is my EPS balance as per details above? does it mean I have a total balance of 129576 ( sum of all 3 above ) or is it just 72080 ?

        Q2: I tried to claim EPS using online services tab on UAN portal but it is showing me the current PF account in the drop down and I cannot select or enter the old PF account number ( as my balance is in old PF account ). Also, I do not find an option for Form 10 c to claim and i assume that is because my current PF account is selected by default.

        Q3: How will i be able to withdraw my EPS and remaining PF balance from old account if the portal is not giving me an option to select old account.

        I started working from July 2010 so am I eligible to withdraw EPS?

  41. Hello Sir,

    1) i can’t submitted my PAN for KYC in UAN Login.

    2) i have worked 4 years and now i want to withdraw my pf then i got “As your service is less than five years and your verified PAN details are not available under Unified Portal, Income Tax at the highest slab of 34.6% is liable to be deducted if your settlement amount crosses Rs.50,000/-. You are advised to update your PAN details before filing for Online claim and also check your balance before proceeding to submit PF settlement Claim.”

    I worked for an organisation from Nov 2009 to Oct 2018 (8 Years 11 months). I want to claim (withdraw) both EPF ans EPS amount.
    While trying to do it online, after verifying my bank details it is giving me only 2 options in drop down i.e.a) Only PF withdrawal and
    b)Only pension withdrawal, composite (both PF and EPS) option is not available in drop down.
    My KYC is completed. Please assist on how to go for claim ?

  44. Hi sir,

    I had applied for PF transfer from previous employer to present employer through online and as well submitted form 13, pf office has rejected my pf transfer request.

    They say that, after 2014 who has a new pf account are not EPS member, hence they are not eligible for person scheme.

    Where at previous employer I joined in year 2015 and this my only one and new PF a/c .They have showed the contribution under both employer and Pension scheme as their practice.

    Now PF Office are instucting that they have to reverse the contribution made for pension scheme to employer and which has to be shown as equal to the contribution made by employee.

    They say it is possible for employer to reverse this and employer will have to send a letter to PF office to do the changes after reversing as said.

    After then PF office will do the necessary changes and do the pf transfer.

    1, Is it true, my previous employer would have not contributed to pension scheme?

    2, My present employer also contributed to pension scheme, do I needs to inform my present employer to reverse the contribution made under pension scheme?

    3. How I take the way forward, please advise.

    I have been running around with PF Office since last October 2018, I request you to please please help me in this and do the needful.

    Now it is not letting me select theothe option “I want to claim my EPS”.

  48. Hello Basavaraj,

    I have completed 10 years service and also few months back I have withdrawn my EPF online. I have completed 10 years from 03 Employers. As I gone through your detailed EPS article I understands now I need to apply for Scheme Certificate from Employer by Submitting Form 10 C. My questions are below

    1. Can I submit request online to get Scheme Certificate or only it can be done through Manually submitting updated Form 10 C to PF Office

    2. I have 03 former employers and I am not working for any employer at present. Do I need to get scheme certificate for all 03 employers ?

    3. I see Rs 1,02,239 accumulated in my EPS account from 03 employers. Will I get this amount back after I reach to age 50 ? or I will get pension based on last employer EPS deducted amount. My last employer has contributed Rs 1,250 to EPS account which I am seeing in EPF Passbook though I am not sure

    4. After I get scheme certificate what is the next step? Do I need to wait till 50 years ? or I can submit Scheme certificates to PF office once I get all

    Kindly let me know

    Thanks

        There is a bit of confusion with my PF and EPS withdrawal because my 1st company had the money in 3 trusts, and the 2nd company had just 1 pf account.

        total PF amount . But I don’t know about the EPS. I can’t see how much is my EPS balance online. This is why when I wrote an email to the 1st company, they asked me to submit form 10.

    Now, I’m working with other company and this company has his own PF trust.
    UAN portal shows both PF a/c numbers (but can not access present a/c).
    I didn’t transferred my PF balance of old a/c and received interested on it for 2 years (still I didn’t received interest for the last financial year).

    Can I withdraw all amount (EPF+EPS) of my old a/c?

  79. Hi Sir, My employee share – 31850, employer share – 9738 & pension contribution – 21678. My total service is one and a half year. My Aadhar is verified. I have 2 questions.

    1. If I withdraw my EPS alone, is it taxable?
    2. My total EPF is about 40k (Employer + employee), So this is taxable or not? becoz, the flowchart saying above 30K without PAN is taxable and when I tried to claim, above 50K it is table. What is correct?
    Can I proceed my claim without PAN verification?

    • Dear Dhanalakshmi,
      1) YES.
      2) I said there will not be TDS if the amount is less than Rs.50,000. However, it is still taxable income for you.

      Reply
      • Thanks, Sir. Still, I am confusing. How is it a taxable income for me? Because my total EPF is Rs. (31850+9738).

        Reply
        • Dear Dhanalakshmi,
          As your service period is less than 5 years, even if they not deduct TDS, it is taxable income for you.

  83. Hi Sir,

    My employee share – 31850, employer share – 9738 & pension contribution – 21678. I raised a ticket for some queries in the grievance cell and they said Rs. 24101 is available in your account. Since it is less than 30000 TDS is not applicable. I have some confusions.
    1. Why are they saying its only some 24k available in my account?
    2. Can I withdraw my both PF and pension at a time or separate claim process required?
    3. Am I eligible for TDS deduction or not?
    4. If I withdraw both PF & pension amount, totally how much I will get in my account?

    I have few doubts. I left job on feb 3rd 2018 and updated all KYC details including bank account. The company also has updated the end of employment details.
    I want to claim the EPF amount as well the EPS amount(pension amount). My service is only for 2 years. I am going abroad and I am not going to continue employment here.

    I submitted the online form 19 for claiming the EPF amount.
    Now to claim the EPS amount whether I should submit the option as “ONLY PENSION WITHDRAWL(Form 10C)”

    It means whether I should submit it twice (form 19 and form 10 C online seperately)

    Also, my employer advised me to send a two copies of form 15G and a pan card to PF office after online submission.
    Whether I should download form 15G fill in and send it?

    Please help me in claiming full amount.

              As mentioned earlier, I had placed the PF withdrawal request online during the first week of April, which is currently showing under process status.

              To my surprise, today when I checked the EPFO portal, many of the details available earlier under my profile have disappeared. Details like ‘exiting service’ etc are now blank.

              Also under the claim, only advance claim option is available; where as, earlier 3 withdrawal options (only PF, only PS, and combined) where available.

              Is this change in my portal temperory as the claim is under process. I am quite surprised to see this status.

              Also, last midnight I got SMS from the EPFO (same message 21 times). The content of the message was: “A auto transfer claim for transferring your EPF accumulations from XXXX. P LTD to XXXX. P LTD has been considered against UAN XXX. If this transfer does not belong to you, it can be stoped claim within 20 days of date of linking(13-APR-2018) by login to https://unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/memberinterface or contact your employer /concerned EPFO field office.”

  111. I am facing issues with my EPF withdrawal, after more than six months of exit. During this time, I have worked as an independent contractor, and may take salaried employment at some time during the future.

    I would be happy if some things could be made clear to me, by an expert, point-wise.

    1. I had incorrect date of birth registered with my EPF account. I filed the changes through the epfo portal. The employer sat on it for 45, days, but agreed to send a joint declaration fixed it. (I don’t need clarity on this, just added this for context)

    2. I understand that Aadhaar number, bank account, and Pan number are essential for online transfer. As of now, the employer tells me the following
    i) The employer has lost credentials to the epfo portal (irresponsible, but plausible)
    ii) The employer is saying that they are submitting form 9, and form 2 (or both)

    Can you tell me what these forms are for, and do they, in any way, help in approval/updation on the KYC? Or is the employer being clueless, or worse, being deceptive?

    3. Suppose, by magic, these KYC are completed. (Aadhaar, Bank A/c with IFSC, PAN), is there any employer involvement/approval for EPF withdrawal? (I mean for the online process). In the past, I have done an online transfer, and employer approval was needed, but it was granted promptly.

    4. In case I do an online transfer to a future new employer, will the past employer approval be needed? (Online)

    5. I had also filed a grievance, with the relevant authority. The reply was as follows:

    It is informed that after processing your grievance,the following action(s) has been taken:
    Necessary directions have been issued to the establishment to update KYC and the same will be approved shortly. Member has joined xx-yy-zzzz and left on aa-bb-cccc member may apply in claim form 19 and 10c for withdrawl

    Can you tell me what is the role of form 19, and form 10c? Do either, or both need the employer’s signature?

  124. Hi Sir,

    I worked for 7 years in Company A and then moved to Company B. I transferred my PF from A to B. Both of this PF were mapped to UAN A. Now when I moved to Company C after 1.5 years, they have created a new UAN B (I do not know why) . I transferred to my pf from UAN A to UAN B. Now from UAN A , I raised EPS withdrawal claim. Will it be accepted or rejected? If accepted then will I get both of the EPS amount of Company A and Company B?
    Thanks in advance.

      • Hi Sir, Thank you very much for your prompt response. But I did not see any option to transfer eps from UAN A to UAN B while placing withdrawal request from UAN A.
        Also I want to withdraw this eps amount of UAN A now. Am I be able to do that?

        Reply
        • Sourav-Yes, this what I wanted from you to know. EPS will never get transferred. Whenever you transfer EPF, your EPS records will be updated by EPFO. But before that you have to request EPFO through your current employer for the merger of both UAN.

          2) You can withdraw after 6 months (when you leave the job). But if you are withdrawing before 10 years, then you will get part of it but not fully as per Table D. If you completed 10 years, then you will get scheme certificate which is eligible for pension when you retire from your employment.
          3) I already explained in 2nd answer.

  148. Hi,
    I have 4.3 years of experience and i claimed for EPF partial withdraw today online.
    My PAN is appproved by my employer but online verification status is “Unverified”. My Adhaar is linked to my UAN and bank account details and mobile number are provided correctly.
    After submitting the claim, i found in the claim pdf that the PAN is reflecting as “Not Available”. As the amount i claimed is more than 50k, i heard that there would be TDS deductions of 34% if pan is not provided.
    But my doubt is, My PAN status. is it considered as provided because it is approved by my employer in the portal and also linked to my Adhaar, or considered as not provided as it is unverified?
    Also, if there would be more TDS, i would like to cancel my claim. Please suggest how.

    Reply
    • Gayatri-This is all happening due to your employer NON-verification of PAN. Inform the same to your employer. Also, avoiding TDS does not mean avoiding tax. Due to your service period, the income you receive from EPF is still taxable income for you and you have to pay tax on that.

      Reply
    • Lemme share my experience here.

      My KYC (Aadhar, PAN Bank A/C) was verified 3 years ago by my previous employer. A couple of weeks ago, UAN shockingly displayed that my PAN failed. PAN Unverified!!

      Then i realised that the name on my PAN card ended with my initials while UAN and Aadhar just had my name spelt as ‘Arun Kumar’.

      When i tried uploading my PAN i encountered an error message on UAN that stated (Name against UAN does not match with the NAME in Income Tax Department).

      Worried about the 34% TDS deduction while withdrawing PF if PAN not verified, I thought of correcting the name on my PAN online. It took around 12 days to get a copy of my corrected PAN from NSDL to my residential address.

      After which, I was able to upload /re-submit my PAN on UAN for my employer’s to digitally verify the same. Right now, its all fixed.

      Reply
        • TDS stands for ‘Tax Deducted at Source’. PF withdrawals above 50,000 is taxable. TDS will be deducted at the rate of 10% unless PAN is submitted or verified on UAN.
          However, in case Form 15G or 15H is submitted along with pan by the member, then TDS is not deducted. These forms are to declare that their income would not be taxable after receiving payment of their PF accumulations.

          Note : If PAN is not updated then there will be a deduction of 34.6% for PF withdrawals above 50,000.

          Reply
          • Arun-But avoiding TDS does not mean avoiding TAX. Also, all individuals are not eligible for submitting Form 15G or 15H. Your income must be below Rs.2,50,000 for that year.

            Reply
            • Basavaraj, nowhere in my earlier comments have i mentioned about avoiding tax. Lets not get mixed-up between avoiding vs. saving. My intention here was to highlight the savings of 10% tax against 34.6% when PAN is provided during PF withdrawals.

              If an individual withdraws PF above 50,000 before the completion of 5 continuous years of service then he/she is entitled for TDS.
              If PAN is verified on UAN then they are entitled for a 10% TDS. If PAN not provided then the TDS is deducted at 34.6%.

              Not all PAN verified members can further save the 10% TDS as there are certain criterias that make them eligible. To get detailed explanation on who can submit Form 15G/H and when, please visit the following link:

              • Arun-Whether the TDS is 10% of 34.6%, at the end, it is based on the individual’s tax slab. This is what I am trying to say.

  160. Hi,
    I was on maternity leave and had to resign due to personal reasons. My employer has credited 2 months extra salary to my account, when the whole maternity policy was being changed by the govt. Now my employer says i’m not eligible for new policy. they added salary by mistake and i’ll have to return it to complete exit procedure. I want to withdraw my pf online but my name doesnt match with aadhar and my employer is not cooperating to change it or help me withdraw my pf until i pay the due amount. I’ve been struggling for almost 3 months now and i dont know what to do.
    I want to know if we require the company relieving letter to withdraw pf directly from epfo office.
    I wanted to avoid visiting epfo as i’ve heard it takes a lot of time and too many visits. It’d be difficult for me to manage with a baby and sick mother at home. but looks like i have no choice.
    Not sure if you can advice something helpful but i just thought of asking.
    Thanks anyway for your blogs, they’re very helpful

    • Neetu-Sad to hear your story. But check whether your EPF is KYC verified. If YES, then you can withdraw online. If NOT, then you have to apply offline by visiting EPFO WITHOUT EMPLOYER also.

  165. Hi,

    I am planning to withdraw PF for paying for my new house. I have paid the downpayment but I want to prepay my housing loan. My PF is linked to my AADHAR and I have submitted an online statement to my housing society.

    To withdraw, do I need to submit the composite form? And should I give my personal bank account number in the composite form (which is already linked to my PF account)?

    Also, I have not been working for more than 2 years due to ill health but I have only 4 years of continuous service. Will I be taxed for this withdrawal? If yes, is there a provision to not get taxed?

    Reply
      • Thanks Basavaraj. I read through your article and it doesn’t answer a few questions:
        (a) I have not been working for more than 2 years due to ill health but I have only 4 years of continuous service. Will I be taxed for this withdrawal? If yes, is there a provision to not get taxed?
        (b) If the downpayment is already made through a bank loan, can it be used to prepay the bank loan (not EMI but prepayment)
        (c) The composite form doesn’t have any provision to write some other bank account number there (e.g., bank account number of the loan)

        Reply
        • Rajendar-a) If you are taking as an advance, then no tax.
          b) Usually, they allow to pay to the builder not to bank to reduce your EMI. But still, check with EPFO.
          c) I am not sure of this.

    I left my job 6 months ago after working for 2 years and 9 months and am currently persuing studies.
    I am in need of some money and was thinking of withdrawing my EPS.
    Can you please help to clear my following doubts:
    1) Can EPS be withdrawn without withdrawing EPF?
    2) Am I right in thinking that EPS withdrawal is better for me than EPF as i do not need the whole amount, EPF will still earn me interest for 3 years and will also be taxed since I have not completed 5 years of service?
    3) Does EPS withdrawal alone attract any taxation?

    I would be really greatful if you can help to clear my doubts please.

  172. Hi Basu,

    I requested for PF Final Settlement online and I got the amount credited to my account. While filing the claim I selected option ‘Only PF withdrawal (Form 19)’. My question is – when I request for PF final settlement – does this amount includes the pension amount. Or I have to file another claim online using option ‘Only Pension withdrawal (Form 10C)’. Please suggest what needs to be done – As per my understanding – Pension is credited in a separate transaction. Hence, I have not received Pension amount. I was in a job for 8 years and now a freelancer.

    1) When I try to apply for the loan online, in the purpose of Loan filed i could see only the option “CONSTRUCTION OF HOUSE”. So for “purchasing a house” also I have to select the option “CONSTRUCTION OF HOUSE”?

    2) Once I received the PF loan for “purchasing a house”, do I need to send any documents to the EPFO
    after the property registration. If so, is there any dead line (time period) to submit the registration documents to  
     EPFO?

Also they do not respond to any of my letters until I raise a grievance.

              • when I checked online while filling form 31 under advance amount point it is showing Rs 1000 to Rs 5,00,000. As per ur link it is showing 90% Employee share with interest and Employer share with interest. in that case why not more than 5,00,000 not allowed.
                Just answer and advice for my point. if u send me link there it will be general way.
                Is it correct or not. while submitting online request form 31 it is shoeing maximum 5,00,000 ?
                thanks in advance.

  201. Hi Basu,

    Its nice article. Thanks for posting this.

    I served with my company more than 10 years and resigned my job March 2016. I no longer working in India. I didn’t withdraw my EPF. I received my EPF statments from my previous employer for the year 2016-2017. In that TDS 10% is being deducted for the interest amount . Could you explain why TDS if I am not withdrawing my amount?

    Total amount in EPF : 10 lakhs
    Interest credited approx for this year : 86,000 RS
    10 * TDS decuted : 8600 RS

    Thanks in advance for your response.

    Reply
    • Prasanna-In my case TDS is not at all an issue. Because first thing, your account is more than 5 years old and you have not withdrawn. But still TDS for what purpose they deducted I am not sure. Check with EPFO immediately.

      Reply
      • Hi Basu,

        I checked with my employer and received the below response. I am still not clear.. Will you please explain?


        The interest on your PF balance as on 31st March 2017 will attract tax as per below income tax rule. ”

        “Under Section 10 (12) of the Income Tax Act, the ‘accumulated balance’ due and becoming payable to an employee participating in a recognized provident fund during the tenure of his service, do not form part of total income.
        The expression ‘accumulated balance’ is defined under Section 2 (f) of the Fourth Schedule – Part A, to mean the balance to the credit of an employee on the date he ceases to be an employee of the employer maintaining the fund. Thus the accumulated balance, is the sum of the amount of provident fund credited to the account of the employee during the tenure of the employment of a member.
        The interest credited to the accumulated balance of an employee who has resigned or retired from his services, does not fall within the exceptions provided in Section 10 (12) or Section 8 of Part A of the Fourth Schedule, and is therefore to be treated as income liable to be taxed. The Company / Trust is therefore under the obligation to deduct tax at source from such interest under Section 194A of the Income Tax Act. ”

        Thanks in advance for your time.

        • Hi Sir,

          I would like to add one more point, I was under loss of Pay for an year between 2013 and 2014. Will it be considered as break in the service and treated as less than 5 years service? Is it the reason for tax on interest?

          Best Regards
          Prasanna

          Reply
          • Prasanna-That may be considered as break. But what I am pointing is, you are not withdrawing the EPF means no question of taxation or TDS.

            Reply
        • Prasanna-Here income liable for tax only when you realize it (withdraw it). Here, you are not withdrawing. Hence, no question of tax liability. You can file a complaint against your employer with EPFO and CBDT. They have to bend.

  219. Hi,
    I left my job last year Dec 2016 and applied for EPF withdrawal.
    At the time of balance withdrawal I had 7 years of experience with different employers.
    I always transferred my EPF balance from old employer RPFC to new employer RPFC.
    Also I ad submitted Form15G at the time of filing the request with employer.
    But now I see the RPFC has deposited the amount y deducting 10% from the amount I see in EPF updated passbook.

    Please help what should I do now?

        4th employer in Mar 2015
        left 4th employer in Sept 2016

        My EPF account also changed for every switch and I made sure to transfer the EPF balance from previous employer to current employer.
        But in case of 4th employer, they created a new UAN account for me instead of referring the UAN from 3rd employer. Now the EPF passbook shows the PF credit for 4th employer and balance transfer from 3rd employer.

        I spoke to RPFC today and they said to submit documents to prove my balance transfers, I dont know what doc can prove/where to retrieve the same.

  236. The error “AADHAAR is not authenticated from UIDAI. Please authenticate your AADHAAR by visiting nearest EPFO office.” while applying for Online PF withdrawal might be due to the name mismatch. Usually employers link Aadhar to UAN with name as shown in PAN card, there are cases where in the name sequence in PAN card is different than the one in Aadhar card (PAN card can have “Middle Name First Name Surname” while Aadhar has “First Name Middle Name Surname”). Try getting the KYC corrected from your employer.

    • The error happens to appear even if the name in Aadhar is same and is approved KYC list. This is something which no one is clear about and the only option is to visit them with the composite claim form (Aadhar based).
