First of all, thank you so much for this platform, where people like me can resolve our doubts with some healthy discussion..I worked in an organisation from June’14 to May’15 and I left the organisation without any notice period.So I can’t go there and do the formalities regarding withdraw EPF. So I just want to know how could I claim for EPF.
Nilesh-You no need to get the Employer’s attestation for withdrawal. You follow the process as I explained below.
- Fill Form 19 (EPF withdrawal) and Form 10C (EPS Withdrawal).
- Get attested by any one of-Manager of a bank (PSU preferred or where you have savings account), By any gazetted officer or Magistrate / Post / Sub Post Master / Notary.
- Write a letter to regional EPFO stating the reason for not getting attestation from employer.
- Send the filled form to regional EPFO.
Do remember that, you can withdraw EPF only in case you are unemployed for more than 2 months. Otherwise, you can’t withdraw. But you can transfer to your new employer provided EPF account.
Hi ,Thanks for your guideline.I want to know which doccument are requied while filling those forms.It is mentioned to attach cancelled bank cheque copy.Is there any other doccument i need to submit or show??
N0..I don’t think any other documents are required. However, better to include your PAN card along with bank statement or cheque leaf.
