EPF withdrawal made super easy – No Employer signature needed

POSTED BY manish ON December 9, 2015 COMMENTS (1,307)

Here is a great news for all EPF account holders. EPFO has come up with new and revised forms using which EPF withdrawal process is now super easy and can happen without employer signature or any involvement. Now you can directly submit the EPF withdrawal forms and the settlement will happen directly into your bank account.

Earlier, the EPF forms were first sent to employer for their verification and signatures, which used to take a lot of time and many a times employers used to harass employees because they had the power to block the EPF withdrawal. However with these new changes, withdrawing from your EPF account is going to be very easy and fast and now it makes a lot sense, because EPF should not be linked to employer anyways. Few months back, with the concept of UAN, the EPFO had anyways delinked the EPFO from the employer to some extent, and this move looks like an extension to that.

New Forms – 19 UAN, l0-C UAN and 31 UAN

EPFO has issued 3 new forms which will be used for as follows

  • Form 19 UAN – You can fill this form to withdraw from your EPF at the time of retirement or leaving the job. Taking our money from the EPF is allowed only if you are unemployed for 2 months. So in case you just change a job and join a new company within 60 days, you can not offically withdraw from EPF, You need to apply for EPF transfer in that case
  • Form 10-C UAN – You can fill up this form in order to withdraw from your EPS amount. EPS account is a seperate account linked to your EPF which is for the purpose of pension. Note that one is allowed to withdraw from EPS only if your EPF is not more than 10 yrs old.Check more details on this here.
  • Form 31 – UAN – This form can be submitted if you want to partially withdraw from Employee providend fund (EPF) account for the purpose like marriage, house buying or medical emergency. There are different rules for different situations. You can check more details on this in this article

Note that there exist forms 19, 10C and 31 already (without the word UAN), but now the new forms end with the word “UAN” to differentiate between old and new forms.

Who can fill up & use these new EPF forms?

Here is the catch!. The new EPF forms can be used by only those employees who fulfil following two conditions

  • UAN must be active and should be linked with aadhaar number
  • Your KYC details (especially bank account number) must be verified by employer using digital signature

If the above two points are true for you, only then you can use these new EPF withdrawal forms

Step by Step process of withdrawing money from EPF account

Let me help you with the steps of EPF withdrawal now. For the sake of explanation, we will consider the case of Form 19 UAN, which is used to withdraw the EPF money once you leave the job or are retired. The same process is used for the other forms as well.

Step 1 – Make sure your UAN is active and KYC details are verified

These new forms can be used only by those whose UAN is active and all the KYC details are verified by employee as explained above.
Hence, the first step is to verify your eligibility. For that, you can go to http://uanmembers.epfoservices.in/ and login with your login and password and then go to Profile->Update KYC Information, where you can either update the details or check them. It looks something like the below example (thanks to my close friend who has passed his details to me for creating this snapshot)

check uan status

In case, you have more than two UAN allotted to you, then you should discard one of them and should be using the latest one provided to you by the current employer.

Step 2 – Fill up the EPF Withdrawal form and send along with cancelled cheque

Once you have verified that all the details are fine. You can then fill up the form. Below you can see form 19 UAN as an example. One has to provide the Mobile number, UAN number, date of leaving, the reason for leaving the service (make sure you choose it properly, because TDS will be applied depending on that reason),PAN & full postal address.

Note that apart from this form, you also have to attach the cancelled cheque of the bank account which is mentioned in the UAN KYC details.

EPF Form 19 UAN for withdrawal
Step 3 – Send the form to the EPF jurisdiction office

Finally, the last step is to submit this form, along with the cancelled cheque to the EPF office which comes under your jurisdiction. The simple way to find the exact address of the regional EPF Office is to go to http://search.epfoservices.org:81/locate_office/office_location.php and enter your state and district of the office where you work/worked. You will get the full address. You can then courier the documents to that address.

epf jurisdiction

The above 3 steps will help you to withdraw from EPF money easily. If you want to withdraw your complete EPF amount, then you need to fill up form 19 UAN and form 10-C and send both of them.

BONUS – Fill up form 31 UAN to withdraw from EPF for purpose of buying house

Let me also share one very important thing related to buying house or repayment of house loan through EPF amount. Form 31 UAN can be filled for partial withdrawal for the purpose like buying house, repaying home loan or things like medical emergency or marriage at home. For more on this, please look at this article.

You can see the snapshot of form 31 UAN below. If you look at 4th and 5th point, you can clearly see that you can take the money directly in the name of the “agency”, which can be the builder or the company which is helping in construction of house. The cheque can be taken for that.

EPF Withdrawal process to be online very soon

I hope you are now clear about these EPF withdrawal forms and how to fill them up. Note that very soon these facilities will become online, it’s just a matter of time. Once that happens, the process will be much smoother and fast, because things will become online.

Let me know if you have any doubts or any questions on this topic. Do you think these forms will help in EPF withdrawal a bit faster?

    I resigned from my job 6 months ago. Can i withdraw my pf as i haven’t joined any organisation yet. As you mentioned Form 10-c and Form 19,Where should i submit them? Should i sent them where my pf account is held (i.e.. maharashtra) ? or Where my previous work place is held(Andhra Pradesh)? Please help. While googling i found that i should submit forms at regional office. What should that mean i don’t understand. I filled up both forms and even i took sign from my previous employer but i dont know where to submit them. Please help me sir.

  77. S Rajan says:

    I have worked for IBM for 4.5 years and left IBM and joined a different company and worked for the new company for 4 years. I have transferred PF account held at IBM to the second employer. Even though my total number of experience is 8.5 years, the current PF account reflects only 4 years. When I withdraw, will there be TDS since the current employer held PF account will show only 4 years?

    Thanks for your help

    1. I think YES. If its showing 4 yrs , then TDS will be applicable and finally the tax when you withdraw it

      1. Rajan says:

        But the total number of years of service is 8+ years. Is not the total years of contribution to EPF considered? Should one must have 5 years in same organization? Does not make sense!

        1. No , it should be a EPF account with more than 5 yrs of ACTIVE contribution. If you changed company, you must have transferred it

          1. Rajan S says:

            Thank you. Yes. I have transferred PF from IBM to the new company. I have one PF Account with all the money. Do you still think TDS is applicable? I have total of 8 years and 10 months of active service with 4.5 years in each companies.

            Thank you

            1. In that case its not taxable . The total number of years for which EPF was active has to be more than 5 yrs.

            2. Rajan says:

    HI Manish,

    The information you gave is really useful but I have few doubts,

    1) will after submitting the EPFO form any follow up is also required or will it be a smooth process.

    2) EPF jurisdiction office address would be the one where I worked before right? because now m in Pune I was in Bangalore before.

    1. I suggest that once you submit the forms, do one follow up in next 4-6 months . THE JURISDICTION WILL BE the old address from where you left the job

  115. SUNIL says:

    Hi,
    Currently working with Delhi based firm in Delhi. Want to withdraw EPF accumulated while working with Chandigarh based employer earlier.

    But the New Forms – 19 UAN does not have any reference about the EPF number issued in Chandigarh. Then how EPFO will come to know about the amount to be withdrawn.

    I do not want to withdraw the PF from current establishment.

    -Sunil

    1. Why dont you use the old EPF number while withdrawing ?

      1. SUNIL says:

        The form has only the UAN column. And writing that may authorize the EPFO to withdraw the Amount from both the Previous and Current EPF accounts.

        Is there any way to withdraw PF from previous EF account using Forms – 19 UAN?

  116. Krishna says:

    hello sir I worked in old company for 9.6 years I left job in Feb 2016 till now I did not get a new job can I withdraw my PF amount throw online EPF or not I am having UAN number plz tell me .

      Yes u can. approach the pf office where the deduction is happened. if new UAN is not generated and u are not working any where then it will be very easy.

    Hi Manish, What a wonderful article. I Have a question if you can help.
    I saw a screenshot above where it says KYC approved by employer. So if employer is not in good relation or not supportive how can we get this done? My wife worked for an year in a company and left in March 2013. We are trying this new option where we can send form without employer sign but for having Aadhar linked it says “Approved by employer”. I am not sure if employer will do that.

    Can you explain.

    Vivek

    1. It can only be done by CURRENT EMPLOYER . Once you left the job, now from my understanding you need to do things manually, not using UAN

    2) For claiming entire EPF money do I need to send Form 19UAN and form 10C or Form 10C UAN ? – Need bit of clarity over it.

    3) •Your KYC details (especially bank account number) must be verified by employer using digital signature – how to get the digital signature and whose responsibility is that?

    1. 1. Find out which jurisdiction EPFO office that EPF number comes which you are trying to withdraw.

      2. Form 19 can be submitted offline

      To withdraw the EPF, you can always fill up the form 19 and submit it to EPFO office. After few months try to follow up with RTI

    Yeah Timeline is very important. Its been 3 weeks now when my forms were delivered to EPFO office but no progress. On portal it says “No Record Found” and after sensing emails and reminder, no response from EPFO.

    1. SharmaAK says:

      Very nice article indeed.
      I left my job in march 2015 and joined overseas company.
      Can i withdraw my pf by submitting same documents?
      Any TDS is applicable in my case, my pf account is around 12 years old.
      Please advice.

    Hello Manish,
    Thanks for this information! I do have few questions.

    I’ve quit from my previous organization almost an year ago but still not withdrawn my PF. I do have a UAN number.
    please let me know how to check if UAN is approved. Also am i eligible to apply directly at EPFO.

    What is the timeline to get the money in my account?

    Regards,
    Naveen J

    1. You will have to check about UAN with your employer !

  252. 1. I have 2 PF accounts liked to my UAN one of them is a trust based PF.
    2. Both the organisations had different bank accounts for salary and both are present in the KYC section.
    3. I have no details about my adhar card as KYC attached in there.

    Questions:
    1. Will the PF from both the PF accounts be withdrawn?
    2. Which bank account check I should provide?
    3. I have both the accounts active. Is it required to have the check printed on my name or check from the bank startup kit fine?
    4. If the adhar card details are required, who will approve the KYC as I am not in a job anymore?

    Thanks for the nice article and this great information.

    1. Hi Anant

      SOrry these would require detailed info for which you should check with your Employer and also with EPFO directly using RTI. That would provide you the most correct info !

Later I joined another company where i got UAN. Can I withdraw my earlier PF using the UAN number provided by my present company as it is active. It would be a kind favor from you. Thanks.

    1. Only if an EPF account is linked to UAn, you will be able to withdraw it online. Otherwise you will have to withdraw it offline

    Thank you for sharing the details.

    I have one question

    Is Adhaar Card mandatory for this ?

    Best Regards,

    1. Yes

      Aadhaar card is extremelly important document now. Better get it

  267. Rahul says:

    Not so easy still. I reached Noida PF office with the UAN forms for withdrawal and they plain tell me something is wrong with my UAN number. They could not even explain what it was , I think even they did not know what it was.
    I have been told to apply using the old method through the ex-employer.
    I have even sent emails to UAN support desk and EPF support desk emailids but as expected no response even after so many attempts.

    1. In that case, I think its the time to use RTI as the tool for getting information.

Can I withdraw my earlier PF using the UAN number provided by my later company as it is still active. It would be a kind favor from you. Thanks.

    Hi Manish!
    Thanks for sharing the great stuff!!
    I left my previous organisation on November 2014 and then joined another company on August 2015.
    I did apply for the pf withdrawal on June 2015 but it got rejected, I still don’t know, for unknown reason.
    I guess it’s because my previous organisation had my birth date incorrect in their records. I found out this when I tried to find my UAN no. using the PAN card no. and DOB.
    It didn’t pull out the UAN with my correct DOB but as I remembered my DOB goof up so I gave a try with incorrect DOB and succesfully got my UAN no.
    As per your snapshot of UAN website, my PAN card which bears my correct DOB shows approved by my previous Employer. I wrote to PF for the correction of my DOB. For which I got response the response to get my DOB proof rubber stamped by my previous organisation and to be forwarded by the Company to them for correction.
    In this scenario what do you suggest that how should I move on to withdraw my PF?
    I had the gap of 60days earlier but now as I am already working in another company. How should I withdraw my PF as I don’t want to transfer my previous pf AC

    Hi Manish,
    I was working with Infosys till July 2015 and joined Deloitte in Aug 2015. Based on your article I understand that I won’t be eligible to withdraw my PF , is that correct? Also I do have an UAN number but I don’t have a adjat card, is holding an adhar card mandatory?

    1. You cant withdraw EPF because you are currently employed. Having aadhaar card is not mandatory

  313. Praveen says:

    Does this apply to those employers who maintain EPF account in their trust rather than directly with EPFO ? Please advise.

    1. No , i am not sure on that..

  314. Illahi says:

    Dear manish sir,
    Thos is my UAN 100112569520 i want withdraw my pf amount how can take this my mobile no is not activated how can activate my mobile no after what I am do pls inform to me clearly

    1. You need to contact EPFO for that

  315. Saurin says:

    How do I get my UAN ? I finished job with my employer 9 years back and since then no job done in India.

    1. Your employer gives that. Contact your employer for this.

I uploaded my adhaar information on the kyc details but its showing now that verification status is pending. Kindly guide me as my UAN number is activated how can i get my PF when my adhaar information is showing the status is pending ?

    Hi manish,

    As you said, The new EPF forms can be used by only those employees who fulfil following two conditions

    UAN must be active and should be linked with aadhaar number
    Your KYC details (especially bank account number) must be verified by employer using digital signature.

    My UAN is active but my KYC details are not yet approved by my employer. Then besides all these updations in EPF withdrawl, it is still in the hands of Employer and i dont think it makes a great difference. Because My KYC status is Pending in the verification for both my AadharNumber and Bank account details from my Employer.
    Please let me know, if there is any solution for this, other than contacting my employer and taking approval of my KYC.)))

    Thanks,
    Narendra

    Sir,
    My father-in-law was working in a company since last 15 years. The company used to follow all the terms and conditions of EPF. Due to poor turnover of the company, there arised dispute between the management and labour union. Since last 3 years there is civil case going on between the employer and employee. My father-in-law is has already crossed the 60 years age and now he wants his PF either to be withdrawn or the pension may be commenced.

    Can you please guide me whether he can withdraw the PF amount without employer’s signature by Universal Account Number (UAN)?. If yes, will he get both the amount i.e. employer’s contribution and employee’s contribution? If UAN is not possible can you please guide me of how to withdraw the PF amount from the EPFO?

    As the UAN might be introduced 1 year back, will he be eligible to open an UAN?

    Please share your reply on my email id: chir1612@gmail.com also. Your guidance shall be very helpful for the withdrawal of PF amount of my father-in-law.

    Hi Manish,

    My wife left company ‘X’ and joined company ‘Y’. Since the company ‘Y’ was not financially in good shape she had to switch to company ‘Z’.

    Now she is been working with company ‘Z’ for past five years.

    I have realized that her EPF of company ‘X’ is not linked with her UAN.

    Please show a path forward.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Sahil says:

      Dinesh,

      If your wife has her UAN linked to the current company.

      Check if your wife is eligible for pf transfer here:
      http://memberclaims.epfoservices.in/check_eligibility.php

      Next, login to epfo claim site and fill up the transfer form :
      http://memberclaims.epfoservices.in/

      Take a printout, sign it and submit it to your company Point of Contact for EPF. (EPFO will send you an automated message with the details of the current company POC . Gawd , the government has became so cool and efficient 😀 )

      It might take a couple of weeks to be done with the transfer. Follow up with the spoc or check in EPFO site every weekend.

      1. Satya says:

        What is the case if X company has been closed?

        1. Sahil says:

          No idea on that mate 🙁 But i suggest you still go ahead with the above procedures . Its still worth a try . Keep your EPF Account details of X Company handy as it might help you get the transfer done without hassles

      2. Dinesh says:

        Thanks a ton Sahil.

    2. Hi Dinesh

      THe old EPF cant be linked to UAN , what she needs to do is manually transfer that EPF to the current one.

      1. Dinesh says:

        Thanks a ton Manish.

    Please Kindly let me know. I am waiting for your reply

    1. Dinesh says:

      UAN number directly you can get without the help of employer you just have to activate your UAN in the web site : http://uanmembers.epfoservices.in/ – it can be done in few mins.

      1. Chandrasekhararao says:

        Hi dinesh,
        Sorry I have only PF account number in site it was asking UAN number and other details. Except UAN everything i have. So now tell me please what i want to do?

    2. Hi Chandrasekhararaopentela

      You need to keep in mind following points

      1. You need to fill up form 19 and give it to EPFO to withdraw your EPF

      2. You should reach out to your employer in case you dont have UAN number

      3. To make any changes in your UAN details, you can either do it online yourself by making a login or ask your employer to do that.

      4. IN case of any other queries, I suggest to do RTI with EPFO with your queries

    Hi Manish,

    I joined in a Company in Jan 2012 and left the Company in Nov 2013. after 5 months later joined in a new company which is started in Apr 2014 and it doesn’t have EPF facility due to the less employees i.e. only 9 people working including me. initially i thought to withdraw my EPF but i wanted to wait if my current company will avail the EPF facility which is may not be possible in future also. So in this case am i eligible to withdraw my EPF now??

    1. No , you are still not eligible, because you are not UNEMPLOYED !

    Hi Manish,
    I’m very pleased with the manner you explained things and trust this blog will be useful for all of us.

    I have some queries and can you please help in sorting this out.

    I’m working for an IT MNC company having 7+ years of experience my PF outstanding is 360000, planning to buy a site/land and thinking to withdraw close to 3L or 3.5L.
    What documents to be submitted ?

    Only Form 31 – UAN will do?
    Any idea how long will it take to receive the amount?

    P.S: My UAN must be active and linked with aadhaar number and approval pending by an employer

    Kind Regards,
    Satish

    1. I am not sure how long it will take because its a govt thing and you know that it takes a lot of time !

Please let me know, is there any way to perform the withdrawal process online? As i have been trying it through the portal, I’ve only got to the point where it gives me option to transfer funds from 1 account to another pf account.

    In this case what should I do, should I submit the forms again to my employer?
    Or can I take the other way of submission of forms I.e. online as mentioned by you in the article? I fulfill both the criterias that are mentioned by you for the process

    Hi Manish,

    I have a bunch of problems here.

    I was working with an Indian organisation earlier (until Nov 2014), after which I moved to Canada.
    Now, I want to withdraw my PF amount. Can I withdraw the complete amount (or) are there any clauses with it ?
    Will there be some additional forms that I need to submit if I am trying to withdraw the PF amount while not being in person.

    I have got the PAN number and Bank Account number added and verified by Employer under KYC – Is that sufficient ? (or) do we need to have the Aadhar card number too?

    Is there a way that I can register my Canadian number to the EPF account ? Right now, I have given a friend’s Indian number to receive the verification PIN.

    Lastly, I have my surname spelled incorrectly and how can I correct it ?

    Your inputs would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards
    Swetha

    1. Hi Shweta

      You can always fill up all the forms and send it to EPFO office. As you have many issues which needs to be fixed. I suggest using RTI here . As far as I know aadhaar card needs to be linked to your UAN for online application.

      Anywyas you can fill up the form offline and send a post to EPFO office.

      1. Swetha says:

        Thanks Manish.

    1. Hi srinivasvolkaji

      You need to keep in mind following points

      1. You need to fill up form 19 and give it to EPFO to withdraw your EPF

      2. You should reach out to your employer in case you dont have UAN number

      3. To make any changes in your UAN details, you can either do it online yourself by making a login or ask your employer to do that.

    1. Hi Vijay

      There are articles that EPFO had plans to do it by Dec 2015 itself, but now they are late. So surely its coming !

      1. Vijay says:

        Thanks Manish.
        One more question. Why is it Aadhar is mandatorily linked in KYC to Form 11 – form 19 UAN ?
        I have PF #, UAN #, also noted employer has verified my Salary savings bank acc details & my Pan details.
        DO I still need my Aadhar scanned copy uploaded AND VERIFIED to use form 19 UAN ? VEERIFIED by whom ? I left job in Jan 2015 after 4yrs of service.
        I can upload the Aadhar scanned copy. What happens after that ?

        Thanks,

        1. Hi Vijay

          Its because Aadhaar is the main document for a person in India now !

      Check your epf slips given to you by your employer to find your A/c No: ##/###/#######/###/#######.
      Once you have this ac details you can check status of your UAN on the epfo portal which would ask your contact details as registered with EPFO/shared by employer.
      It will let you register/activate UAN directly in the same page and it opens your account.

    Hi, I left the organisation with short notice period so my employer with held my pf amount and am not sure about the Uan number rather I have only EPF number.Is there any possibility to with draw my amount, pls help.
    Thanks
    Shyam

    1. Hi shyam

      You need to keep in mind following points

      1. You need to fill up form 19 and give it to EPFO to withdraw your EPF

      2. You should reach out to your employer in case you dont have UAN number

      3. To make any changes in your UAN details, you can either do it online yourself by making a login or ask your employer to do that.

      4. IN case of any other queries, I suggest to do RTI with EPFO with your queries

      Its a bit long cut, but works well

  593. Shobha says:

    I have recently switched the company and applied for PF transfer online. Within the short time the process is started. Without any manual effort. Thanks to government for making these jobs automated. No third person involvement, hassle free process.

    1. Glad to know that Shobha ..

  594. Minal says:

    Manish sir
    My son working and he has changed the job 2 yrs back, his employer made mistake in his name spelling, due to that we are not able to transfer the amt to his current epf which has UAN and kyp complied

    Formar employer has not updated his digital signature also ( company is bangalore and we are in pune)
    We are following this issue for the past 2 yrs, but still in old pass book epf has not change the name
    Any suggestions for the same

    1. You need to update the changes first in the EPF for the name change.

  595. Mukesh Kumar says:

    i have two Provident Funds account and i am joining a new company. Can i ask my new company to submit Form 13 to transfer money from my previous two accounts.

    1. You can do it yourself online now . I am writing an article on that, will share with you soon

  596. Aditys kachru says:

    Hi,
    Please give light on transfer of epf money from previous employer to New .
    I don’t have Aadhar no. And UAN.
    would like to know the steps of doing transfer.

    1. I am writing an article on that, will share with you soon

  597. Timma says:

    Hi Manish,

    Can you explain tax implications for different withdrawal reasons?

    Thanks.

    1. There are no taxes to be paid, because all the withdrawals are done after 5 yrs minimum.

  598. Kiran says:

    what if employer not verify bank account details? this is the main problem during withdrawal.
    Otherwise employer can easily submit the form to EPFO.

    This whole thing is required when there is a problem with employer
    Also how to link UAN with Aadhaar number

    1. Your employer will link the UAN with the aadhaar number, give it to them

  599. Madhav says:

    I am not retiring from my job but need to withdraw EPF money for medical reasons. I hope the online withdraw scheme is applicable there as well.
    Can you please confirm?

    1. NO , you cant do it online. Anyways you will have to send these docs to EPFO office

  600. Sundesh says:

    Is the process same for a Trust as well? I do have a UPN btw. Normally for bigger organizations like TCS, Infosys and Wipro EPFO allows these organizations to manage EPF as a trust.

    1. I am not clear on that Sundesh

  601. Manoj says:

    Hi Manish

    You said once KYC must be verified by employer and then employee.

    When KYC submitted by employer, in that case it shows no Document is available.

    Should not it show under approved upload section?

    Why this is considered two different cases i.e. submitted by employer and submitted by employee?

    In any case KYC approval should be listed. Please clarify.

    And one more thing, it ask for attested scan copy for KYC, is it self or gazetted officer?

    Thanks

    Manoj

    1. Hi Manoj

      I am not clear at that level. You might want to check this with EPFO office itself using RTI

  602. Vamsee says:

    Nice article. Some of my friends withdraw the monet from EPF even they joined a different company within 60days. Is it really possible ?

    1. Its possible ,but they have gone against the rule. As the system is so big and with no stringent checks, many people are able to bypass these rules

  603. Bharath says:

    EPFO is really making good progress. They are making things easy. Thank you EPFO.

    1. Thanks for your comment Bharath

  604. Raj says:

    I hope they will set this up online and it will really cool then.

  605. Kiran says:

    Great article !!!
