New EPF Withdrawal Rules 2019

Recently new EPF Withdrawal Rules came into existence where you are allowed to withdraw 75% accumulated corpus if you are unemployed for more than a month.

But before moving forward, please take the note of earlier notification which I explained in my blog post “Tax on EPF after resign, retire or terminated” for better understanding of taxation on EPF after you resign, retire or terminated.

In this new notification, a new clause, 68HH has been inserted after para 68H in the 1952 EPF act. Clause 68H refers to the grant of advances in special cases like your company closure for more than 15 days or 6 months (Refer THIS for more details).

New EPF Withdrawal Rules 2019

As I mentioned above, a new clause 68HH has been inserted along with the existing 68H in the 1952 EPF Act.

The new clause 68HH refers as below.

New EPF Withdrawal Rules

68HH. Non-refundable advance to a member in case of continuous unemployment for a period of not less than one month.- The Commissioner or, where so authorised by the Commissioner, any other officer subordinate to him, may permit a member, on ceasing to be an employee in any factory or establishment to which the Act applies, a non-refundable advance up to seventy-five percent of the amount standing to his credit in the Fund, if he has not been employed in any factory or other establishments for a continuous period of not less than one month immediately preceding the date on which he makes an application for such non-refundable

From above notification we can arrive at the judgement of below points.

# You are allowed to withdraw a NON REFUNDABLE 75% of accumulated EPF corpus if you are unemployed for more than a month.

# Such advance is NON-REFUNDABLE. Means you can’t pay it back to EPFO. Once you withdraw this advance then it is your’s. Hence, act wisely before opting this feature.

# Here one month period means it is from the date of an application for such non-refundable advance is applied for.

# Even after such withdrawal is made, the person will remain part of the EPF and eligible for pension benefits.

Keep note of the point also that, along with newly inserted clause 68HH, the earlier para 69(2) that allows 100% withdrawal after two months of continuous unemployment is still in effect. Women resigning to get married can withdraw 100% without waiting for two months.

Hence, it is clear that if one is unemployed for more than a month, then he can withdraw 75% of non-refundable advance from EPF corpus and still continue to be the member of EPF along with EPS benefits.

However, the earlier para of 100% of withdrawal in case of one is unemployed for more than two months is also still active.

Also, women employees resigning to get married can withdraw their 100% without waiting for two months.

    I was an international worker in India working from July 2015-Dec 2019. I tried withdrawing my PF and Pension amount but got rejected with the following reasons:
    EPF :
    Pension :

    Can you please help me with it?

  2. Hi,
    I have worked in 2 diff companies, when I tried to withdraw, it asked to link and transfer to one PF account, now it seems like the pension amount is not transferred, and some amount has been shown in withdrawal as – “claim against para 69(2)”, can u explain what is Claim against para 69(2). there is a withdrawn amount is employer share – 5297.00 and employee share – 17328.00

  3. Sir am having one UAN Number & 3 account with EPF, I have claimed for merger of two account with the current one, amount is merged stating para 57(2) but still shows 3 pass book and also difference in the balance.

  4. Hi Basavaraj sir,

    I have claimed the pf amount of 88k in April 2017. But the pf amount was 98k but I have recieved the amount was 88k. Why the amount fully not credited to my account.

    So, is there any steps need to follow to recover the remaining amount into my account?

    1. Denzil Correa

      Dear Veerendra
      4 years gave passed and now you have decided to check on your pf recd.
      98k less 10% tax is 88k.

  5. Dear Sir,

    I submit 10c from along with annexure K form to EPFO office as my current company is exempted. its really appreciate could you please confirm that in how much day I received my pension amount as I already received the P.F amount.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Dear Pappu
      When you submitted form 10c with annexure K have you written to p.f office a note saying what is your pension number in the unexempted office so that the 2 numbers total service is added.If not you might receive pension amount only of exempted office.

  6. I am in job and need of money to withdraw PF. I had withdrawn Advance under home construction 2 years back and now they would not let me withdraw further for next 3 more years.

    1.Is there any other clause (other than covid advance, medical which is partial) where I can withdraw almost entire employee and employer share?

    I have tried to withdraw PF under 68BB which is paying the bank loan directly, now they have rejected that saying Bajaj Housing Finance where I have the loan is not in their old 1960 document of listed banks 🙂

    2. How do i reach Head Office to suggest and update the document to allow the withdrawal claim to be paid to Bajaj so that they update their operational document

    3. I have seen one time exceptions provided earlier to pay to the member account directly with undertaking that member will pay the bank loan directly

  7. Hi Sir,

    I applied for ‘PF withdrawal’ and within a week the amount credited to my bank account is the amount mentioned under ‘Pension Contribution’. The amount of employee share and employer share is not credited and the amount is shown under ‘Withdrawals’ and it is stated as ‘Claim against Para 69(2)’ in the passbook.
    Kindly clarify.

    1. Dear Lakshya

      It is common when an individual applies for pf and pension the pension amount comes first followed by pf money in a few days.

  8. Dear Sir,

    My wife worked for an organization for 9.7years…and this company has now shutdown and we withdraw our PF balance, but Pension we are not able to do so , as per the PF site its starting as 10 years of work and pension fund cannot be withdrawn, and company has already updated as cessation short notice in PF site, as per my knowledge they are rounding it off to next digit , please guide me with the procedure to claim the pension fund or what’s the next procedure

  9. Sunil Suraj Kripalani

    I have filled in form 19 and withdrawn my entire of amount but because the passbook was updated late my one months pf shows as balance in my pf account. How to withdraw this. I tried form 19 again but the same was rejected stating claim already settled.

    1. Dear Sunil
      After interest for 2019_20 is credited for all employees print your pf passbook.If any balance amont is payable you will have to make an application to the p.f. office stating balance amount payable with passbook proof and form 19 .

  10. Kishore Padubidre

    I have worked in previous company for 5.5 years and after unemployed for6 months I joined new company and working in this company since last 3 years. Can I withdraw advance from pf account from previous employer? Do I need to transfer account to present of account to withdraw advance?

    1. Dear Kishore

      Yes you must transfer previous pf account to your current account.
      Remember at present you have 3 years aervice and only advance you can get is for covid or medical.Once you transfer previous account you can take advance under different conditions.

  11. hello sir my age is 56 years and 6 months i currently work in a same hospital for 22 years 1 year and 5 months left in my retirement can i withdrawl 90% of my pf balance now

  12. Hi
    I want to withdraw money for my marriage but epfo rejected it mentioning my seven years are not completed but it’s already completed.I have 4 different PF account numbers linked to same UAN.My pf balance is transfered to my current company already but not sure why they are rejecting it.Any solution??

    1. Dear Swati
      Considering the fact you have worked for four organizations over 7 years .Pl note everytime a transfer is done they make a manual entry in their form 9 regarding your service details . So when you apply for marriage purpose unless they open their form 9 and check the three previous transfers you claim to be done it will get rejected.
      I hope you are aware you will get only 50% of your contribution.
      Visiting the p.f. office with the relevant proof of service would definitely help.

  13. Hi Sir,

    I have been working for 5 years and resigned Oct 2019. Currently I don’t plan to take another job as I have started up with my own venture. I applied for full claim for EPF but recently been rejected for “NOT ELIGIBLE U/P 68H(1) AS ESTABLISHMENT IS LIVE”. I am not sure what this means. Raised a grievance but taht hasn’t been resolved yet. If you could help me with what is to be done next?

    1. Dear Priyanka
      You have applied for Pf using the wrong option this option mentionedmeans that your iffice is closed for more than 2 months.Please apply using options firm 19 and form 10c not form 31.

      1. Hi,

        Thank you for the above suggestions. I got my claim after a month but a 10% TDS was cut. But under my conditions of 5 years 20 days of employment and more than the amount of 50k, no TDS was to be deducted from my final claim settlement. Please suggest the reason for the TDS cut and if I can claim that amount later.

          1. I got the below reply after raising the grievance with EPFO Cell:
            “With reference to your grievance it is to inform you that NEFT Status is showing Bank Pending . There is no entry in Recredited Rejected Cases either . Amount will be recredited to members account once the amount is received back to this office . Later member can resubmit the claim”

            So does that mean that the rest of the money will be credited to my account soon?

        1. Sir i leave a compny just working in 7 days…they now add the exit date & add short service reason….& I transfer my balance of previous amount to ths current account…but why m unable to with drwa in form 31 …?

  14. I resigned from my job on 20th March. I am unemployed since then, I also do not intend to take up a job as I am planning to start my own business.

    1. Can I withdraw my entire PF (both employer & employee contribution) and pension as well?

    2. If yes, which form should I fill?

    3. Also, though my pf has been transferred, my pension is still under two ids, how to merge them and withdraw?


    1. Dear Tanya,
      Yes, you can withdraw but you will get part of EPS not fully. If you have online credentials in unified portal, then apply online or use the composite claim form and submit to your employer. No need to merge EPS.

  15. Hello Sir, I have 16 years of work experience in a company and planning to get retired in couple of months.

  17. Hello Sir,

    Firstly, you are doing a great job by answering all queries. Thanks a lot.

    My query is, I have worked for 4 year 11 months and 10 days, would be considered as continuous 5 years of service?
    I have worked for two organisation during this period and transferred the pf amount from one to another after switching, my passbook showing amount has been transferred. Now it’s more than a year I have left the job and wanted to withdraw the amount. However, when I am trying to apply for withdrawal on epfo website, the option of composite form for withdrawal not coming, the options coming are:
    1. Only PF Withdrawal (form -19)
    2. Only Pension Withdrawal (form -10C)
    3. PF Advance (form -31)

    Which one should I select, I want to withdraw full amount?

    Also, for withdrawing, the latest account no. is reflecting & date of joining is showing of last employment not the first employment.
    Further in passbook, I can’t see the date /period of service. But in service history tab, I can see the details of both employment. Please guide what to do?

  20. Hi,

    I have worked from June, 2014 to Nov, 2017 , after that I left my job . Since Nov, 2017 I have not worked any where for exam preparation. Recently I applied for PF partial withdrawal twice using Form-31 and my claim got rejected both the time.

    1st Claim:- 1st time I applied under Form-31 “ADVANCE FOR CONTINUOUS UNEMPLOYMENT FOR ABOVE ONE MONTH” but it got rejected and the reason given was “1) 68HH AFTER THE EXIT 2) NOT ELIGIBLE FOR WITHDRAWAL BENEFIT” i.e. I am not eligible . I don’t know why.

    2nd Claim :- 2nd time I applied under Form-31 “Non Receipt of Wages (>2 months)” but it also got rejected. The reason given was “1) PLEASE SUBMIT NON RECEIPT OF WAGES CERTIFICATE FROM EMPLOYER 2) NOT ELIGIBLE FOR WITHDRAWAL BENEFIT”.
    As I do not have any employer, from where I am supposed to get the non-receipt of wages certificate .
    Also on UAN portal where claim is submitted, there is no option or space for submitting any supporting document . Where will I have to submit it ?

    Could you please help me bot the claim reasons. From where should I get non-receipt of wages certificate and where should I submit it ? Also Why am I not eligible in 1st Claim ?

    Thank you

Current situation is out of last two employers transfer , both have been accepted but only one is been reflecting as the other transfer takes time due to Trust and reconciliation takes time at PF office.

    Trying to understand if there should be a continuous of 5 years in the same organization for PF advance on house construction loan or else is there something else that they have rejected.

    1. Dear Venkatesh
      I suggest you go for offline claim form31 because in service history the transfer from trust will not show.Alobg with the form and cancelled cheque you could give an explanation of your full service.This way there should be no problem.

      If you do this pl let me know the result.

      1. Thank you Sir but still trying to understand if the 5 years for house construction loan is eligible for continuous service in the same organization or combined of 5 years with multiple companies with same UAN. Please confirm.

  56. Denzil Correa

    Dear Somu
    Make a claim again under form 31 then you will get some idea as to what is happening .You will get proof which you can take screen short and then submit grievance.

  57. Denzil Correa

    Dear Krishna
    If you see service history you are an active member. Hence no question of taking out money.

  58. Denzil Correa

    Dear Punith
    You must be having somen proof certified by employer of your last day of service.
    Take that proof and fill up the pf consolidated aadhar form where employer is not involved along with cancelled cheque and aadhdar to p.f. office personally.

  64. Hi I am Charan my question is I am working in a company from last 4 years 11 months 5 days now I wanted to resign so is this taken as 5 years, do I have to pay tax on my EPF.

  65. Nice article, sir i have a question,
    I worked with one firm say from March, 2012 to March, 2015 and then joined second firm say from March, 2015 to March, 2019. So in this case the total tenure applicable for my EPF is 7 years and i am eligible for EPF withdrawl as per the rules. After i log in to EPFO webiste, it reflects two member IDs and links the second firms’ tenure period only for any online withdrawl purpose.

  66. Dear All ,
    Please help i have showing in my account last working day 31/1/2019.and new company has showing joining date is-16/1/2019.hence my PF claim not transferring to newly added pf account.Last company denying to change the exit date please guide to claim of transfer.

  67. Hello Mr. Basavaraj,

    My wife completed 1 year in an IT sector and it has been exactly 1 month since she resigned, I tried to help her take 75% of the PF amount but it does not give us that option at all, it just tells us to wait for 2 months. But we are entitled to get that 75% after 1 month of service right? Any idea what we may be doing wrong here?

  68. Hi Basavaraj,

    Does PF full-withdrawal need continuous 5 years or can
    be discontinued 5 years.

    i have discontinued 5 years. (5 yrs 5 months) but while withdrawing its showing only the last company’s service detail alone where i worked for 4 months.

    All the PF transfer from previous employment has been done and reflecting in passbook.

    Please do the needful.

    Logs (while withdrawing)

    Date Of Joinng
    ?????? ?? ??????/Date of Leaving
    ???? ?????? ?? ????/Reason of Leaving Service*


      1. Hi Basavaraj,

        The last company’s passbook has that 4 months entry plus “transfer in” of two companies. I don’t see total service period.

        I can see in PF portal service more than 5 years of service across 3 companies with gap.

        And my PAN card is not verified does it matter ?

        Because, while withdrawing its saying “As your service is less than five years or PAN is not linked, Income tax at highest slab of 34.6% is liable to be detected”

        1. Dear Babu,
          But as per EPFO data, your service is less than 5 years. Hence, it is taxable income for them. Hence, as per me, first try to resolve the issue of service and then apply for withdrawal.

  69. Hi sir this is punith I need one clarification in my uan I’d bank account which I updated it’s closed now now I want to apply of without employer signature now shall I give my another bank account details for withdrawal need clarification sir

    Please help.

    Thanks and Regards

  73. In pan card we don’t have option of initial but in all my records initial is there how can I withdraw my pf without initial in pan card.

  74. Hi Mr. Basavaraj,
    I have been following many of your articles on investments, PF etc. Thanks for all the useful info and insights! I have a quick couple of questions on PF withdrawal that I am not getting answers from any of the online contents:
    1. It’s 5 months since I resigned (after 12 yrs employment), and have been unemployed since. I want to withdraw part of my PF balance – can I do that or is it mandatory to withdraw the entire 100%?
    2. The reason for my first question is that if I withdraw the entire 100%, how will I get the interest amount for 2018-19, that is yet to be credited? Hence I want to keep my account open with a small amount remaining, so that the interest for last year is credited and then, I can withdraw in full.
    Thanks in advance!

  75. Hi Basavaraj,

    I completed 10+ years (Mar 2009-Apr 2019) of IT service in a Pvt Company in India and resigned on 18th Apr 2019, and moved abroad for higher education. My KYC is up to date with UAN,PAN,Adhar,Verified Bank account and I have the active linked Indian SIM to receive OTP in abroad. My questions are:

    1. Can i withdraw 100% EPF amount (EPF+EPS) before two month period (before 18th June 2019) via ONLINE mode?

    2. This year statement shows that yearly interest still not credited (should have been credited by 31march 2019). Will i get all the due interest if withdraw 100%.

    3. if not possible to withdraw 100% ONLINE before two months of leaving job. Can I withdraw 75% now and remaining entire amount on 18th June2019. Will I get my entire money (100%) with INTEREST in this case (two online withdrawal) ?

    1. Dear Gurwinder,
      1) 100% EPF but not EPS as you are eligible for scheme certificate due to your 10+ years of employment.
      2) Yes, they pay you on a pro rata basis.
      3) I have already answered it.

      1. Hi Basavaraj,
        Appreciate your prompt response.
        As I have moved out of India on a permanent basis so this money is kind of blocked until i turn 58. If I am not interested in Scheme Certificate. Any way to get this money?

  76. I worked for a year n resigned on feb 2018… almost more dan a year i want to withdraw my pf.. wanted to know can i also withdraw pension contributions along with pf amont please guide as i know nothing abt dis subject..??

    of problem,,,,

  78. Hi

    My last working day was Feb 2 2019 and I plan to withdraw my PF & EPS sometime in Jan 2020. Is it possible to withdraw the amount anytime in the future or is there a cap? Also, I am opening another PF account from my new employer because I want to withdraw money from the old account. Is this a fine arrangement?

      1. Thanks for the quick response. So, correct my understanding if wrong anywhere. I can withdraw my old PF anytime in the future, right? The only thing is that I should have a new PF which automatically have a new UAN, right? This way I can withdraw as well as continue with a new PF and UAN account. Do let me know if I am wrong anywhere. Again appreciate your quick help in this matter.

    I found your blog and found it very useful. Was good to see that you’re engaging and helping everyone out, so I thought I’d leave a comment too.

    I only had PF at my first job back in 2014. Since then I’ve worked on consultant contracts. Since I needed some money, I filed my EPF and EPS claim on the 28th of Feb online after seeding my PAN, Aadhar and Bank Account. When I didn’t see any progress on the same for 20 days, I filed a grievance. All of the EPFO contact numbers are busy. This was very dissappointing. I wanted to ask if this was the usually run of things?

    Also, I’m joining a new job on April 1 which does have PF. So what do you recommend? What should I do? Will my recent claim complicate matters at my new job?

    Thank you once again.

    MERI service k 10 saal complete hi gai hai (01/09/08) mujhe abi Apne pf ka pura balance withdraw Karna hai tho Mai Nikal sakta tu kya… ? Aur kaise…?


    Sir is it possible to withdraw my PF money without my company not added my bank account to my UAN number.

  132. Hi,

    I need your help. I Worked for a company from July 2009 till September 2011 and contributed to my epf. After that I had to go to Germany for my masters and was there till 2013. After that till now I have been working with 2 startups which never had EPF provision as the team strength was always below 10.
    Now I want to withdraw my money. Will it be taxed as I have contributed to EPF only for 2 years, but total service of 7 years.

      1. Hi Basavaraj,
        Thanks for the response.
        However the fact that my other companies in last 5 years not having EPF benefits was something beyond my control. Do you think that makes an argument? or are you sure that I would anyways be taxed?

        Secondly, If I decide to leave the EPF as it is, will I still keep earning interest on it for the rest of my life till 58?


          1. Hi Basavraj,

            Thanks for the clarification. I had decided to withdraw the amount, but after your inputsI think I should rather let it remain there.

            I have 2 more follow up questions though

            1. I read in some article that post 2011 govt had decided not to pay the interest for inoperative accounts (after 36 months of no deposit) and then in 2017 they decided to withdraw this clause. Did inoperative accounts earned any interest during that period between 2011 to 2017?

            2. I want to keep track of my EPF deposits, but I don’t have a UAN number. Just the old PPF number. How can I get a UAN number now? Nothing mentioned in the website as well. (Please note that I had to abscond from my first company for higher education as they didn’t give me proper release, so they would definitely not help me with my UAN number)

            Thanks in anticipation.

            1. Dear Sumit,
              Such inoperative accounts also earn the interest but it is taxable income for you. You can generate the UAN on your own. However, if you are no more working, then I suggest you to withdraw.

  133. I need help from all of you to solve this problem:-
    Starting from joining of the first organization to the last employee is as follows ( on chronological orders) :-
    Sept 2008 – Joined company A – Resigned from service Feb 2011- PF account details is available with me – PF account status >>Pf amount, not withdrawal, Inoperative at the moment.
    March 2011- Joined Company B – resigned from service December 2011 – PF account details is available with me – PF account status >>Pf amount, not withdrawal, Inoperative at the moment.
    January 2012- Company C- resigned from service July 2012 – PF account details is available with me – PF account status >>Pf amount, not withdrawal, Inoperative at the moment.
    August 2012 – Company D – resigned from service Sept 2014- PF account details is available with me – PF account status >>Pf amount, not withdrawal, Inoperative at the moment.
    This time UAN service comes into the picture and having my UAN number, but UAN number was only for this account
    October 2014 – Joined company E and resigned from service on July 2016. >>>PF account status >>Pf amount, not withdrawal..
    Please note that UAN is not linked with this employers, before joining this company the UAN supposed to link with this organization but its not done.
    After this service, I left India and currently working in overseas, therefore my UAN is not linked with any other PF account except one ( Company D). Could you please suggest me how to extract entire PF amount easily.
    Looking for your expertise in this regards.

      1. Thank you for your suggestion. One last suggestion I need, among of those pf, one pf in chennai brunch office and one Mumbai and one bangalore. Therefore do I need to visit respective places or can I claim my submission from any EPFO office in India??

  134. Rajratna devidas Jondhale

    Dear sir my claim form not open in EPF technical problems toh muze kohi tarika hai kya pf ke paise nikalne ke liye

  135. Hii Sir Rathna here,

    i was trying to withdrawn the pf sir but the issue is pan verification its not happening Adhar verification its done, 4 years of pf without the pan its taking 33% tax sir from 3 month i m trying its not happening what is the solution now how to withdrawn the pf without verification pan or how can i add my pan let me know please,,,,,, in all the documents names are correct i have cross checked everything.. .. please help me wat to do

    1. Dear Rathna,
      If PAN verification is not happening through online, then better to visit the regional EPFO and try to link. However, do you feel avoiding TDS means avoiding tax? In your case whether they deduct TDS or not, it is taxable income for you as your service period is 4 years.

  136. shibam mandal

    hi sir, mera name shibam mandal . sir hum apna pf & pension a rupee dono withdral a lia dia he..26/02/2019 but kinte din lage gi sir samaj a nehi raha he..or hume is rupee ki bohot jald jarurat he ..meri daddi ki cancer he or uski tretment chal rahi kaya karu kaha bolu ki oh amount send kar de …plsssssss sir help me…joy hind …i will wait sir

  137. I left the old company on jan-3rd 2019 and joined a new company but,still new pf is not started or linked yet,new company pf will be adding after 6 months,Now i want to apply my old pf ,but its showing “Date of leaving is less than 2 months from today or age should be 58 years or more” like this it will showing, please tell me tha solution?.

  138. Hi Sir,
    I had to resign due to ill health and have been unemployed since over a year. The umang app shows my exit details as cessation-short service which I believe will cause deduction of TDS in my case as the amount is above 2lac. Please advise what action needs to be taken from my end.

      1. I understand that TDS can be claimed back and tax is my liability but I do not qualify for a tds deduction or tax. Though my service tenure was a few months short of 5 years but I had left due to ill health and as per epf withdrawal rules (para 68j) there should be no TDS applicabe. Also, the “proceed for online claim” on Umang App is greyed out.

          1. Dear sir,
            The online epfo website does allow me to apply instead of the umang app.
            The total amount of my pf is approx 3.5lac and I have been unemployed for 2years now. The reason for leaving service was ill health and service duration was 4yr 8mths.

            My question is will I get taxed on the total amout?
            The info that I get online is that if one completes 5 yrs or service termination is due to ill health/lockout then full amount is credited.

            Please help as I am not able to get a precise answer to my issue.

  139. I have left previous company last 1 year back and currently working in different company with different PF account no,I have to withdraw my pf amount for my urgency need. Can you please confirm is it possible to withdraw my full amount?

      1. Sir same problem Mera bhi hai but online transfer option show Nahi ho Raha hai bcz previous employer does not had any payment ,to kya offline procedure hai koi 2nd member I’d me transfer Karne Ka jisse withdrawal ho jaye

  140. Sir ,

  141. Hi Basavaraj,
    I was unemployed for 3months (oct’18 till mid of Jan’19) but couldn’t claim as i got error my UAN was not verified. Now I am employed again. Can i withdraw 100% of PF untill last emploment?

    Now my UAN is verified and I am able to click online withdrawal, but the bank IFSC code is wrong. Can I proceed with the withdrawal steps?

    I had been with 2 companies earlier and have 2 PF account linked to my UAN. Does this withdrawal include both accounts or should I initiate one by one?

    1. Dear Sowmir,
      Better to correct your bank details and then try for withdrawal. Regarding 2 accounts, if all your EPF accounts are under one UAN and you are currently working, then you are not allowed to withdraw.

  142. Dear Sir,

    My wife is working with AXA group currently which does not have a PF policy since it’s an insuarance based company where as they have a trust where they accumulate contributions.

    6+ months earlier she was working in some other company which had her EPF opened where the total amount is showing approx. to 54K.

    Now since she cannot continue the EPF in current company can she remove the amount.

    We got married 1.5years back & recently booked a property. Can this reasons good to withdraw full amount.?

  164. Hello Basavaraj,

    Right now I am in notice period. Leaving job permanently and joining my family business. I want to withdraw 100% of my EPF balance. Please tell me whether I can do so.

      1. Dear Neil
        Once exit date is updated option of full withdrawal will appear form 19 and form 10c
        Anything further i will be gkad to offer help

        Basu has given permission for me to offer advise

  165. Dear Sir,
    Your articles have always added new elements of knowledge and you are an inspiration.
    Request you to clarify what has essentially changed with this notification, as earlier also we were allowed to withdraw up to 75% of corpus from EPF upon 1 month of unemployment and EPFO benefits still continued for rest of the amount. Thank you.

    1. Dear Rahul,
      Earlier if one is unemployed for more than two months, then he was eligible to withdraw the all 100% of the corpus. In that case, EPF account will get closed. However, in this case, one can withdraw 75% NON-REFUNDABLE advance if one is unemployed for more than a month. Rest 25% will remain in EPF along with EPS benefits. Hence, it is like an emergency financial set up for those who can’t bear the job loss.
      However, I strongly admit to create an emergency corpus to sustain such financial loss rather than experimenting with withdrawal from EPF.

  166. Hello sir Basavaraj ,
