I was an employee of an MNC from January 2007 to October 2016 (9 years 9 months). I was deputed for discontinuous service in US under the same employer for 4 years 1 month (March 2012 to July 2012 and December 2012 to October 2016). During my service in US there were no contributions made to Provident Fund. My contributory period is 5 years and 8 months. I resigned from the MNC in October 2016 to another company in US and am not planning to move to India soon.
Can I get EPS portion withdrawn citing employment/settlement abroad and not opt for scheme certificate even though I was a member of EPFO for almost 10 years. What should be the supporting documentation that I need to furnish to get the EPS withdrawn without scheme certificate in this case?
Anticipating valuable feedback. Thanks.
Yes, you can withdraw and payment will be based on Table D of NPS.
Thank you for the reply. Am I allowed for withdrawal of EPS with ten years of service, based on 5 years of contributory service or based on employment abroad? This will help be to opt out from scheme certificate in form 10C and providing supporting documents to my old employer.
