How to use my old EPF money – Withdraw, Invest or Prepay home loan ?

POSTED BY RRG ON March 24, 2014 2:37 pm COMMENTS (3)

I recently changed my job and have doubt about Provident Fund.

PF of approx. 1 lacks is accumulated in my PF account from my previous job. I have an option of withdrawing this sum and invest it somewhere else (I know ideally I should transfer this amount to new PF account).

Please suggest which will be more profitable option from below:

·         Transfer amount from old PF account to new one (I heard that this takes long time. Aslo usually we don’t get chance to withdraw PF).

·         Home loan prepayment (I have taken 14 lacks home loan in 2012 and EMI is jointly paid by my wife).

·         Investment in share market ( I am already doing SIP of 15000 per month)

·         FD / tax saving FD

·         Any other profitable option

Please suggest what should I do? I want to withdraw this amount for better.

    Dear RRG, as you are not jobless, you can not withdraw your PF amount. It should be transferred mandatorily.

    Thanks

    RPG, Transfer it to EPF A/C of your current company. As I can see you are able to do SIP of 15K/month and your wife is also working. so better get tax benefit on Home loan and keep money in EPF invested as it would be tax free (after 5 years of EPF A/C Opening).
