Online EPF Transfer and Withdrawal Strengthens Your Retirement Saving

Online EPF Transfer and Withdrawal facility helps the employees more than the expected. This small initiative can increase the retirement saving considerably. The hassle of EPF transfer forces people to withdraw it or just leave the amount in the account. These inactive accounts don’t earn any interest. Online EPF Transfer and Withdrawal reduces this hassle. Hence now onward you should not delay.

You can start your online transfer of EPF right now.  This will result in greater saving. In Practice majority of the employees don’t transfer the amount after changing the job. According to EPF rules if you are only changing the job you can’t withdraw the amount. But to avoid the hassle employer as well as employee both gives a false undertaking of unemployment. Hopefully this will end by online EPF transfer and withdrawal.

In this article I will tell you-

  1. How Online PF Transfer eases your hassle
  2. How Online PF Transfer Process Works
  3. How You Can Transfer PF Online Yourself
  4. What About Online EPF Withdrawal Process

Online EPF transfer and withdrawal, Provident Fund Benefits Of Online EPF Transfer And Withdrawal

  •  This service makes transfer and withdrawal of the EPF transparent. The employee can track its application just by one click. They are not required to go from one desk to another.
  •  All the Applications of Online EPF Transfer and Withdrawal will be tracked centrally from the Delhi office. This makes regional PF officials more accountable.
  •  Application processing is faster. Now you can expect your PF transfer in 3 weeks.  Now EPFO Employees are required to data feed the physical application. This saves time.
  • Now it is the responsibility of EPFO to get the response from the employers. Usually after the resignation of the employee, the employer becomes reluctant to do paperwork for him. Now he has the only attest the application form just by one click.
  • Also, because of online application, there would be less error. This also makes application processing faster.

How Online EPF Transfer Works

Employee provident fund organization is the custodian of your Provident Fund. It invests your money in safe option so that you can get assured return after the retirement. But you have not to directly deal with it. Rather your employer deals with it. Your employer do the paper work, authenticate and deduct mandatory contribution from your salary. Unlike Banks or any financial institution EPFO does not ask for any KYC documents for authentication, rather employer authenticates you.

In case of EPF transfer or withdrawal EPFO acts only after your employer’s authentication. Earlier this was done by physical paper. You used to give the application form to the employer. Employers used to verify and send to the regional PF office. In the EPF office also files used to move at snail pace.

  • But in the online process you submit your application directly to the EPFO. Since it is in digital form it is simultaneously sent to the regional PF office, your previous and present employer.
  • Now regional PF office tracks application with the employer.
  • Your employer(s) gets the message of application. Now it has to attest it so that EPFO get assured about the identity of the employee.
  • But employer itself also has to satisfy that the original employee has applied for PF transfer or withdrawal. That is why you have to submit signed hard copy of your application  with the employer.
  • After this assurance employer attest your application with the its digital signature. The employer does this process at the EPFO portal.
  • Now EPFO has to work on the process of transfer or withdrawal.
  • It seems very easy and it should be also. But in realty EPFO itself has many steps of processing the application. Also, your employer can also take several days just to attest the form.

Online EPF Transfer And withdrawal Actual Process

  • Your first step is to check eligibility for online transfer. This facility is not available for everyone as many organizations have not given their digital signature yet. Between your past and present employer one should have given the digital signature.
  • The employee can Fill the application form on the website of the EPFO (www.epfindia.gov.in ) with all the details.  Besides Personal details Employee will be asked to give it’s PF account number, Old and new employers EPF code. You should have these before filing the application. Employer’s code can also be searched from EPFO website.
  • After Submission of application You have to download the printable application form. You have to submit this application form either to your present or past employer. This process is to validate that real employee is trying to transfer the EPF amount.
  • On the other side copy of the application will directly go to the employer who has the digital signature. Another copy will go to the respective regional PF office.
  • After the verification from the employer(s), EPF will be transferred. EPFO commissioner also said that if required there would be provision of penalty also.

 The employee can also submit a Physical Application in his regional PF office for the transfer or withdrawal of EPF.

What About Online EPF Withdrawal Process

Earlier EPFO announced that it will start the online EPF transfer and withdrawal process simultaneously. But it could not start any service on time. Whole initiative was stuck on unavailability of digital signatures. At last EPFO came to the online EPF transfer facility only sense in this service to employers are involved and there is more chance of getting digital signatures from either of them.  Now gradually many employers gave their digital signature and we can hope that soon EPF withdrawal service will start.

    Hello,

    I have applied for online PF transfer in JAN 2014. The online portal OTCP.
    its been 5 months till my status on OTCP portal shows that "Your request is in transit"

    I raised grievience 2 times but same reply that it will take time.
    What will be the reason still its not done?

    Avinash Thorat

    • Hi Avinash
      The one and only reason is the lethargy and unprofessionalism of EPFO. Wait for some more days and after that file RTI.

  9. aryan says:

    sir I have worked for 3 years with an organization but organization is not helping in withdrawal the epf amount.Can I directly withdrawal the epf amount from regional office ?without interfere of my employer?

  10. Hi Arpit
    I have a different take. I find EPFO very lethargic. Online EPF transfer should be done at least 5 years before. If there can be core banking 10 years ago then why not online PF transfer. Today as well there should not be any need of transfer. Why should we transfer money from one account to another. There must be a single EPF account and our every employer should deposit money in it. We would have quote the EPF account number to our new employer. That is done. after that we should be able to check our account whenever we want. IT system has reached to such a level. These thing can be done easily.
    However i agree that it might help congress. :-)

  11. TA says:

    Hi,

    I have worked with an organisation (X) in Delhi from 2003 till Jun 2010. They had our EPF account with regional EPFO office in Delhi . Since Jul 2010 , I have moved to new organisation (Y) in Delhi itself and still working with them. They (Y) have their TRUST as per EPFO guidelines . Last month I had submitted form 13 (as physical signed doc) to present employer (Y) and after completing their part C, they (Y) had send form 13 to previous employer (X) for confirming part B and to have their signature. Pls note present employer (Y) has not signed my form and advised its better to be signed by previous employer . As informed by previous employer ( X) that they had received my form and after signing my form and verifying details, had handed over form to their authorised representative for submitting to EPFO office. After this i am not getting confirmation on status of submission of form even after multiple follow ups (its more than 2 weeks). In this scenario , I have 2 queries:
    1) It’s now 4years since i left job with previous employer (X) and now i am getting EPF transferred to present employer (Y). So query 1 is – will i get interest for all 4 yrs or for 3 yrs only.
    2) Since I am not getting confirmation on submission of my form to EPFO office by last employer (X) ; what are the possible and best options available with me . I don’t want to further waste time by mere waiting for response to have ‘confirmation on submission’ ; should i re-submit form and this time submit myself in epfo office after getting signed by last employer (X) OR Present employer ; else pls suggest .

    • Hi TA
      1. You will get interest only for the 3 years.
      2. My advice is to wait for some more weeks. At least one month. Check the status with EPFO. Hopefully Your amount will be transferred till then. If you could not get it transferred after a month you should file a grievance with epfo. You will get answer within a week. I know you will lose some interest in this waiting game. But Do bear for some more months.

      regards
      Chandrakant

  12. Mishraji, Nice blog. I must say, On-line PF transfer is one of the few good things which UPA government did for common citizen. Unfortunately they never talked about it during election campaign. I believe they might get few more seats if they advertised it. :)

    Hi Chandrakant,

    My wife had initiated the PF transfer from the current employer on 28th May 2014 through online portal. It was approved by current employer on 6th june and pending with the previous employer. Inspite of contacting them several times, it is still not approved from the previous employer. She had received a message from EPFO portal as “Your Claim is pending with the employer. It may get rejected after 12th June if a signed copy is not submitted. Ignore if already submitted.” Please suggest me a way to expedite the process as she left the previous organization and joined the current organization almost 1 year 9 months back. Looking forward for your response.

    Regards,
    Jai

    • Hi jai
      While filling for you are asked for the verification through current or previous employer. You must choose the current employer. If this is the case you shouldn’t worry. Else raise a grievance through EPFO. you can again fill for choosing current employer.

    Hi Chandrakant,
    I wanted to know how I can retrieve my current PF balance from the EPFO website? Currently in both e-Passbook and “know your balance” it only reflects till 01-04-2014. Would it now only update in the next financial year?
    Thanks in advance…

    • Hi Manish
      Normally EPFO tells PF balance till the last financial year. In the passbook, it updates frequently. You are fortunate that you get to know your balance till April 2014. I myself can’t see the PF balance after April 2013.

    I left my 1st organisation more than a year ago, I have switched 2 organisations since then. I did not get my PF transferred. When i asked them for a withdraw i got the following response.

    As per clause (e) of sub-paragraph (I) and in clause (2) of Paragraphs 69 of the EPF Scheme 1952, if employee working in an organization the previous employer PF accumulations has to be transferred to their present employer PF account number.

    Since you are working, please ask your present employer to initiate the PF Transfer application through EPF portal (online PF Transfer).

  43. RAJDEEP DUTTA says:

    Dear Sir,
    I was working with a company in Saltlake, Kolkata for 5 years. It has been more than 3 years as I have left the organisation and I had never applied for the PF amount. As I have moved to my hometown i.e. in Guwahati, Assam and right now I am self employed as I am running my own business. So, I would like to know that can I be able to transfer my PF account online and if so then how. Could you please help me out regarding this. Thanking You.

    • Hi Mr Dutta
      As it has been more than 3 years and you are self employed, you should withdraw your PF amount. For withdrawal you should approach HR department of your employer. You have to fill form 19 for PF withdrawal and form 10 C for pension withdrawal. Your employer would attest and forward these forms to regional PF commissioner. This whole process take average one month.

      I can understand your hurry. You should get your EPF money early. It does not take 12 months for EPF withdrawal. Average time for PF withdrawal is one month. Iris possible that either your employer or regional PF office is slow. In any case if you want speedy withdrawal then you have to pursue them. You can go directly to the regional PF office for withdrawal but unfortunately it takes more time.

    1. Has any one recently submitted online pf transfer form, how much time it takes these days?

    2. I have 3 pf accounts from my last 3 employers, i never got them transferred.
    how do i go about closing them? transfer first to second and then second to third? i am not in any job since 8 months.

    Thanks
    Tushar

    • HI Tushar
      Since, you are not in any job you can apply for withdrawal from all of your accounts. But for this you have to go to all of your employers.
      1. It takes one week to one month for online PF transfer
      2. You can transfer your pf directly from first to third account.

    hi Chandrakant,

    I have submitted my pf form (10c and 19) to epf office on 28th march.
    and now when I am checking for account balance, it is showing that your account has been settled pls contact your respective epf office.

    is there any problem ? if not then, how much time it will take to transfer the money to my SBI savings account.

  47. Ashish says:

    Hi Chandra,

    I have a query on EPF withdrawal. I came to US more than two years ago and now work for a US company. I have some balance in EPF account. Will it be illegal to withdraw money by stating that I do not have any job in India?

    How can I withdraw the money and transfer it to my bank account? Which form do I need to fill?

    Thanks,
    Ashish

    I left my 1st company 6 months back to join a new one. I applied for PF transfer to 2nd company just last month. I want to know what happens to my PF transfer if I leave my current company to join a 3rd one before the PF transfer is complete?

    Hi Mishra- I tried to do the online transfer of my account from my prev org to the new org account and everything is going on smoothly till it shows me the preview page and when I generate my pin, get it on my mobile, enter the same and finally ask for process, it says ‘error in the page’ and doesn’t take me to the next page confirming my request.

    Any suggestion please?

    • Hi
      Indraneel These are my suggestions

        Please check if you had filled all the coulmns.
        Try to use different browser.

    Thanks Chandrakant ji.

    To give you a background, I was employed with IBM for close to 6 years and then joined Satyam. I was there with Satyam for only 6 months before I moved overseas, I wanted to combine my PF accounts before withdrawing my PF funds. Hence I applied for the online transfer process and got it approved by IBM.

    As per your advice, I filed a grievance through the EPFO website and received a response saying my previous employer(IBM) has not approved the claim. I provided them the proof of approval and now EPFO has come back saying they haven’t received any transfer request from my last employer(Satyam). My understanding was this online transfer process was to make things easy for PF members by getting approval only from one employer. Request you to kindly advice what are my options now?

    Thanks & Regards,
    Anil

    What does this mean. By when will the money be actually transferred to my current company’s PF account?

    • Hi Shreyas
      Congrats. Your documents were right and now there remains procedure of transfer. Your PF should be transferred within 15 days.

  56. Manmohan Garg says:

    Dear Mr. Mishra,
    I worked with previous company for 03 years. After leaving my previous company I remained idle for some time say “X” months. After “X” months I joined another company and transferred the PF to my current PF account. I have completed 02 years in current company. Now I want to leave the company and want to withdraw my PF balance. As I have completed 5 years (aggregating both companies service period) now, the amount should not be taxable. I want to know is there any limit of time “X”.

  57. Daniel says:

    Hi, I had applied for the PF withdrawal on March 4th, and when i checked the online claim status is says 6th March as the submission of claims. Later, when i check today, the status for 10C is still under process but Form 19 status says as approved, and payment under process.

    Wanted to know how long does it take for the fund (under Form 19) to be credited into my account when the status says “Payment under Process”?
    How long does the Form 10C take for approvals and disbursement of funds?

    • Daniel
      You should expect money in a week. Both of the forms proceeds altogether.

      • In any case if you are the genuine person no one can stop your EPF. Talk to them and offer an affidavit. your employer must have some different account number in their record. Talk to them in writing and send a registered post with acknowledgement.

    • Hi Rajesh
      A very warm welcome to Planmoneytax. As you have settled your previous PF account, you can’t continue That PF number for another job. There is nothing left with that PF number. Now your employer would apply for a new PF account on your behalf. Tell these things to the employer.

      Yours

    Yeah, Old employer has done the verification.I did n’t opt for attestation from old employer, since I was worried whether they would care to act fast for an ex-employee and also handing over the acknowledgement was easier with current employer.I was surprised that my current employer is taking time to attest it online.

  70. Gajanan says:

    Hello sir,
    I had applied for online PF transfer on 12th Feb’14 and submitted the acknowledgement signed to my current employer (Had selected current employer for attestation).Meanwhile my old employer kindly verified the data quickly on 14th Feb.However my current employer has still not attested online.Wanted to ask whether EPFO follows up with the employer too.I have been continuosly following my current HR dept.
    With best regards

    • Aniruddha Sharma says:

      Dear Gajanan,
      For fast transfer you could’ve selected only old employer. This point is mentioned in EPF website too. Any way, now you need to follow up with both of your employer to do the needful. EPF office will act only after final submission from employer side. If ole employer has done the needful then ask your current employer to do the final things from their side;

    logically it should be my full name under member name.

    am highly disturbed by this that a/c no given to me has a different member name assigned on EPFO.

    is this normal nuisance with EPFO. have people faced this issue before ?

    regards,

    Sandeep

    • Hi Sandeep
      This is really unfortunate. Now you have to struggle with your employer. Go to him and ask or rectification of the mistake. It is possible that they have given you wrong pf number. It is not a naromal anamoly. There have been instances of wrong spelling or date of birth but totally different name is rare.

I know i have a lot of queries but i greatly appreciate your advise. thanks

    • Hi Harman
      you have to apply for withdrawal through both the employer. You need not to come in India if your HR department accepts scanned application. You can download application from the site fill it and send scanned copy to your employer. Then your employer should forward it. Talk to the HR department of both the companies.

    Dear Chandrakant Mishra,
    I used to work for a company in chennai between 2000 – 2002, for which the EPF account was with the Chennai Regional Office. Subsequently, I have relocated out of Chennai to Bangalore, and the old company has closed down.

    I recently tried to check my EPF account with the Chennai Regional Office, and it shows the account as “Inactive”.

    I wish to withdraw the funds parked in the above EPF account, as I no longer working with a company. What is the process? Can I process the withdrawal request from the Bangalore Office of EPFO?

    Please note that the old company has closed down, so there is no one there to process the request.

    Await your expert comments.

Can this account get transfered aborad say South Africa. if not then when i return to india how will I track my account and if needed how iwll i withdraw my money.

    • Hi Nesar
      If you can return before 3 years then you may continue your EPF account, Else you should withdraw your EPF since you will not get interest after 3 years of inactive account. You can’t transfer your account either.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your article. After being resigned from my previous organization on August 2013, i was been unemployed for more 3months. But my concern is, i do work currently in an company and don’t wish to transfer my PF amount instead i would like to withdraw them.

    As you mentioned earlier, as per the PF rule, we can apply for withdrawal only if we are unemployed for 2 months.

    Will i be eligible to withdraw the amount? though i”m working currently?

    Looking forward for your reply…..

    • Hi
      To withdraw pf amount you have to give undertaking that you are unemployed. You may have heard that many people give false undertaking. Now you have to decide, Government is not going to put you in jail. This rule is to ensure that you must save money for retirement days.

    My Name is Gnanananda Reddy. I left my job in December 2011. I have PF Account in my old company. The old company is in Hyderabad. In March 2013, i have joined in New Company in Kakinada. But my new company didn’t provide any PF. Can i withdraw my PF amount online without consulting my old company.

    Thanks in Advance,

    • Hi gajanan
      You can’t withdraw your PF without going through your previous employer. If he does not cooperates then only you can submit direct application to regional PF office. You have to tell about employer’s not cooperation.

    Hi,

    I am resigning from company in two days and i like to withdraw my PF amount. I was working in the present organization for 4 years. Before joining or after joining other company can i withdraw the amount. What is the procedure to withdraw the PF amount?

    • Hi Sarvana
      As PF is for retirement years EPFO discourages withdrawing it prematurely. According to rules you can’t withdraw PF amount if you employed. But if you have been unemployed for more than 2 months then only you can withdraw the amount. To withdraw you have to give undertaking that you have been unemployed for 2 months. You have to give application through your previous employer.

    Hello,

    Thanks for article.

    Hope you will be able to revert on my specific query as below:

    After joining my current employer in May 2012 (EPF office is Delhi), I had requested PF transfer of my last company where I worked for 3 years (EPF office is in Chennai). My current employer applied for PF transfer and also gave me receipt (dated Sep 2012) for the PF transfer request. Till today there is no clarity why PF transfer did not occured. My current employer (HR) is of opinion to request for PF transfer again and asking me to fill form 13 again. This is because now PF transfer request will be initiated online and hopefully there will be better clarity in whole process. My query is::

    Ques: Is it fine to put PF transfer request again (online this time) provided we have already done PF transfer request once before?

    thanks in advance…..

    • Hi Singh Sir
      Yes it would be fine to initiate online transfer again. If EPFO has any problem they will revert you. Please Go ahead.

    Hi, I am part of a Indian company and deputed to onsite to another country. My Indian company pay me salary in the foreign country and stopped my PF contribution in India. I understand that upto 36 months my PF account will attract interest. If I come back to Inida, my company will resume PF contribution. Now, I will live in the foreign country for few years. Please advise if I need to withdraw my PF contributions?

    • Hi Bala Kumar
      Yes you should withdraw the PF amount. As you will not get the interest after three years.

    Hi Chandrakant,
    I had been working in previous organisation from April 2006 to July 2008. I forgot to withdraw my PF amount. Now I want to withdraw the amount but when tried to access the balance details , it is showing “In-operative member”. Further my previous organisation has been shifted from Gurgaon to Chennai. When I contacted the HR in Chennai , they are saying they don’t have any information regarding Gurgaon office as they have new account in Chennai. Can you please suggest , what should I do in this case ?

    Regards,
    Manish Mishra

    • Hi Manish
      If you are working now you can transfer previous PF amount easily. As online transfer facility is there. Either fill the withdrawal form, Scan it and send to the previous employer. they should forward it to the EPFO. If there is not response then you can directly submit your withdrawal form in regional PF office. I have given detailed process of that in previous comments.

  107. Deepak K says:

    Dear Mishra,

    Could you please help me understand if I can withdraw my previous PF amount if I am currently working in another organisation. If yes how?
    - I have switched the job twice
    - I remember giving PF transfer applications when i joined my 2nd and 3rd organizations.
    - Recently I checked my balance of all 3 accounts and by seeing the amount it looks like previous 2 account are independent and are not transferred.
    - I am currently in my 7 years of career and I dont think so it would take 4.5yrs (1st tenure) and 2yrs (2nd tenure) for the EPFO to transfer the amount

    So I am wondering if my PF is transferred or not and if not how to withdraw it. If i cannot withdraw it, any other alternatives to take partial money back.

    Regards,
    Deepak

    • Hi Deepak
      If your previous amount is showing in any way you will get your whole amount with interest. It is better to show independently because you would have always an idea that how much amount was transferred.
      Rules say that you can’t withdraw your amount if you have any employment, You can transfer only. If you are unemployed for more than 2 months then only you can withdraw the amount.

    Request your help on this aspect.

      You can file an RTI requesting for the day by day status to PF department. Also you can request for withdrawal directly than going through the employer by attesting the application with a bank manager. Please check the procedure online.

    Dear Chandrakant,

    Thanks for your valuable efforts on this forum.

    Sir I have few queries concerning my PF withdrawal/transfer

    Queries :-

    1. I left my last company after working for 4 and half years last month only. Now if I go ahead with withdrawals of my PF amount :-

    A) Are they taxable ?
    B) What percent of tax is liable on withdrawal of amount ?

    2. I tried to check my balance as per link provided by you in previous queries however there is No CPM code in my EPF number. It starts with DL/XXXXX/XXXXX (there are numbers in place of the X’s)

    3. I tried online transfer however same is the options available on the portal are :-

    DL CPM
    DS SHD
    DS NHP

    Thanks and Regards,

    Sandeep

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Sandeep
      1- if you withdraw your fund before 5 year it would be taxable. Your PF amount will be added to your total income. Then tax will be calculated according to your total income. So it is possible that would not be liable to any tax in case your have lower total income.
      2- Nothing to worry, Go through this link, search your establishment. You will get your other codes as well.
      3- same solution as above.

    Hello Chandrakant,
    Before I put my problem, let me thank you for the special service you are doing in this space. You are relentless at it and appreciate your commitment. Please also answer my query:
    The situation:
    1. I worked for a firm for about 1.5/2 yrs. The separation was not smooth and do not have a relieving letter. But have some pay-slips and the pf account number for some Karnataka pf office. I did not transfer the account to my next job. I am not able to check the balance online, the format of the number seems old.
    2. I worked for about 9.5 yrs in the next firm, I could check the pf balance. Please remember the account is different that the first. The separation was smooth.
    3. My last job was for about one month, again the account was a new one. Here too there was no problem in separation. But not able to check the online balance.
    Now I am jobless for about six months and plan to start of my own.
    Considering the situation above, can you please let me know if I can take all the money, including one in the first situation. And how should I go about it?
    Like, shall I go for individual forms for the withdrawal or first consolidate and then take the money? Please provide your expert opinion.
    -Best Regards,
    Gautam

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Gautam
      First thing I would like to tell that only you are owner of your PF money. No one else can take that. As you have not any job you should withdraw the money. As your First PF account is very old so you are not able to view the status. File a grievance with whatever details you have. Also tell the company name and address. They should reply with your current status. Either you can directly apply for withdrawal without going to the employer. I have told the process in earlier comments.
      For second and third account go through your employer and withdraw the amount

      Hello Rahul
      You can send your form to your employer. Have a chat before that as precaution. They should attest the form. They verify that you have been thier employee and authorised person to get the PF amount.
      You need not to be present there.
      You should give the account number which has been your earlier salary account. your employer will verify that.
      Duration of attestation depends upon the promptness of your employer there is no minimum time stipulated.
      They must have all of your details.
      Go this link for form and instructions

              It is upto them. They have to maintain the document. they would be answerable for any misdeed or fraud. Of course you will get the money. Cheers

    My current status shown as:

    Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.

    When can I expect the final transfer?

    • Lalit says:

      How long did it take to reach this status from previous status?

      • Lalit says:

        There are 15 steps in the transfer out office and 8 in the transfer in process.
        If it took 4 weeks to get to this stage then expect another 2 weeks at least.

        • govind says:

          It took one month to come to this status

          • Lalit says:

            Then expect 2 weeks easily. Even after that you will only see the new balance after the generation of 2013-2014 member balance statement by Sep 2014. However once the intimation letter is generated you can be sure that the amount has been transferred.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Govind Ji. Actually there is no set time frame for every step. But I think you will get it within 15 days.

      Online Withdrawal of PF is not started yet. You have to go through the previous employer. EPFO will give you interest till date.

        It also depends upon the promptness of regional PF offices. Overall it should not take more than one months.

    Hi Chandrakant,

    In reply to one of the members you have written that, we can draw EPF by getting the Form attested by a notary, bank manager etc. and write an application to EPF comissioner about the behaviour of the employer. Just want to ask is it neccessary to write this application. becoz the employer might give negative feedback due of this action to my new Employeer . i don’t want to get EPFattested form my previous employer becoz there office is quite far. They usually call me on working days which is not possible. can i get my EPF form attested by notary and not write any application. Is an application essential?

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Rahul

      Normally employee should forward their application through the employer. There should be genuine reason to bypass this channel. Also EPFO takes more care in processing the application which are not coming through the proper channel. It may happen that they would reject the application. In your case it will be better to take one day off and apply through your previous employer. You will have chance to catch up with your friends and colleagues. You can send scanned copy of application to your employer. Either use courier and send form to your employer within 3 days.

      Cheers

  134. Vaibhav says:

    Dear Mr. Chandrakant,

    I wish to withdraw my PF amount as I am not working since over two months. This was my third job. I had got earlier PF amounts (accrued at first two jobs – work ex of 33 months and 12 months respectively) transferred to my latest company (where i was employed for 30 months). Overall, my work experience is over five years, and hence I believe there should not be any levy of tax on withdrawal. I wanted to know the list of documents that would be required by PF office to ascertain that I have worked continuously for five years (I guess it is too much to expect that they would have details of my previous employments – especially as it pertains to different PF offices).

    Thanks
    Vaibhav

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Vaibhav

      You need not to worry about tax. As PF office do not deduct tax at source, it means that you will get your full amount. In case someone’s total initial PF account is less than 5 years old then also he is liable to tax on its total income. That is PF amount will be added in his income of that year for tax calculation. In your case as you have completed 5 years you are not required to give tax.

      Cheers

Do I need to apply to EPFO hyderabad only as I am living in delhi. Is there any way That I can apply it here only in delhi, or else what can be the best possible process for me.

    Thanks n Regards,

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Sachin
      You have to apply with Hyderabad office. Talk to your previous HR department. you can download form and fill it yourself. After that you can send scanned copy to the employer and they will send it to the Hyderabad PF office. Else you can wait for online withdrawal process. but in this case you may loose interest as 3 years has been passed.

    Hi Chandrakant,
    I appreciate your help to people through the blog.

    Like most of the people I am also facing problem with PF transfer. My previous employer has their own PF trust. When i initiated PF transfer through my current employer my previous employer promptly prepared a demand draft and send it to my current employer. But neither of them informed me about the transfer. It looks like my current employer lost/misplaced the demand draft. All this happened in Jan-2006. The PF transfer did not happened till now. Now my current employer is saying that he did not receive the draft. Where as my previous employer said that my account is clear with their trust, and also they gave me draft details (DD number, date, amount), annex-k as a proof of settlement. and they say it not their fault if draft is lost by some one else.
    I agree It my mistake that i did not track my PF transfer so long.

    I appreciate your suggestions in this regard…
    regards
    suresh

    • suresh says:

      • Chandrakant Mishra says:

        Hi Suresh
        It is a tricky situation as many years have been passed. Now as you have draft number and date etc. If it is public sector bank then file RTI and ask where this amount was gone. It may be that money is remained with the draft issuing bank as unclaimed amount. If it is the case then through your previous employer redeem that amount. After that your previous employer will again initiate the transfer process.

    Dear Mr. Mishra,

    Glad to see the sincerity with which you are replying to all the queries. I wanted to share my experience so far with PF transfer.
    I currently have 3 PF accounts, One with my present employer and the other two with 2 previous employers going back to about 14 years which I have not been able to transfer yet inspite of many attempts including RTI filing.
    Today I filed an online transfer request successfully after many attempts for transfer of my more recent PF account which is 5 years old. I will be sending the attestation form to my previous employer tomorrow.
    The other account is no longer visible on the EPFO website and for that I have a mail to the EPFO helpdesk mail id as was provided on the website.
    I will try to keep you updated on the progress of my efforts.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Abhishek
      You must withdraw your EPF ASAP. If you are employed you can also transfer. Transfer will be easy in your case. For withdrawal you have to get your PF money without attestation of employer. For that you have to fill the EPF and EPS withdrawal form yourself and get it it attested by any of these
      -PSU Bank Manager
      - Gazetted officer
      - Magistrate
      - Postmaster
      - Notary

      Send this Form to the regional PF commissioner stating that company does not exist now. If you have any proof attach it also. Wait for at least a month. If it does not get processed you can file RTI also.

  161. Naveen says:

    Hi Chandrakanth,
    My previous company Patni Computers System is closed (merged with iGate), but I have not transferred the PF to my new account. When I tried for the Eligibility of PF transfer, I got a message “Since Previous establishment ID MHBAN0018734000 have not registered the digital signatures of their authorised signatories, you cannot submit the transfer claim online. It is advised to submit physical claim through previous or present employer.”

    Is there any way I can do the transfer?.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Naveen
      It is not a big problem. As your previous company does not exist there is no question of providing it digital signature. You have to apply through the previous company that is iGate in your case. It is also possible that iGate also did not provide digital signature till now. Ask to your HR department whether they will give the digital signature in next one month, If yes you can wait for online process. Else You can go through the offline process.

      Also Naveen, since your company is merged, the new HR department should initiate the PF transfer process of all the employees by itself. Check once with them.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Kiran
      I can understand this is a worrisome problem. There are two probabilities of this problem. It might happen that you have entered wrong account number in your application form. Check with your employer whether it’s HR office maintained copy of your application. If that is the case then PF office can’t be responsible for that. But Don’t worry there is still chance to recover your money. You have to work fast for that. Go to your bank with the account number in which money is transferred, Ask the name, address and contact number of the account holder. Now File a lien with that person’s bank. After that you can contact that very person and request for reimburse. You can also file a case in court to recover your money. I advise you to contact a business lawyer in this regard.

      If mistake is on the part of EPFO then immediately file RTI about the status of the money. Act fast. I would also like to know about your case plz do Share with me.

    Hi Chandrakanth,

    Thanks for reply to my earlier query.

    The printable Transfer Claim Form (Form-13) can be saved in the system. The member
    has to take a printout of the printable PDF file of Form 13, sign it and submit it to the employer chosen by the member to complete the process of claim submission by the member.

    1) After submitting Claim form for attestation to previous employer, what member has to do going forward?

    2) Generally, How long it takes for transfer of PF to new PF account.

    3) By doing so, whether pension fund (8.33% of employer contribution) is also transfer along with PF fund or do we need to separately request for its transfer.

    Your response will highly appreciable.

    Thanks,
    Govind

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Govind
      1- You have to go to the previous employer and submit the form with them. For precaution take two copies of that and take recieving in one. Now you have not to do anything except tracking. Your employer will attest your application online.
      2- Govind Online transfer Facility has just started, we have to see how much time it takes. Logically it should take lesser time than offline process. EPFO says that it will take 3 days in processing But my estimate is one to two week.
      3- Govind your pension fund will also transfer with this.

    Hello Mr. Mishra

    I would like to wait for online withdrawal facility to withdraw my old PF accounts, but when I am trying to see my balance using my PF number provided by the employer its format is not matching and not showing any balance even putting zero in place of missing number

    For example my PF account number provided by the company is MH/PUN/34224/nnnnn while checking the balance of the account by putting PU/PUN/0034224/000/nnnnn nothing is being displayed.
    Invalid Input / Member name mismatch against this PU/PUN/0034224/000/00nnnnn

    please suggest.

    - Manoj Kumar

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Manoj
      You are doing right, I Think You should try without prefix of 00. Else Check with your employer. There is possibility that in PF records your name has some spelling errors.
      Cheers

Your blog is simply best and very helpful. Thanks

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Ajay

      Online EPF transfer service is working now. For withdrawal there is no deadline. Let EPFO take its time.
      You have read correct you can withdraw your money by above process.
      Thanks for encouragement

    Hi Chandrakanth,

    I have a strage case and would really appreciate your guidance.

    I had worked in 4 companies. I have 4 PF accounts. All 4 accounts are inactive since I am not working from last 3 years. All 4 of them have different surnames.
    1. Radha Kumari
    2. Radha Kumari Sharma
    3. Radha Sharma
    4. Radha — this is the last one

    Please clarify is it possible to merge/transfer/club all these PF account money is 4th Account with name Radha and then withdraw it? Bcos the bank account right now I have has my name as ‘ Radha’ without any last name/surname…

    Please clarify… I will really appreciate ur help. If possible please send ur reply at agrwal.a@rediffmail.com (my husband’s email id)

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Radha

      Indeed it is a strange case. If you want to transfer your epf amount from one account to another you have to run from pillar to post. You have to to every employer they will accept forward your application of name change first. Then you have to initiate transfer process. Either apply for withdrawal via every company using the respective names. IF your company attests your application with your current account then there should not be any problem.

      Actually I havn’t came across to this type of problem. But this is for sure that your employer must have to verify you in this case. Go and talk to them. Also Do share with us. It will be helpful for many other readers.

    Hi Chandrakanth, This is good forum to be in. I really appreciate your effort in regards. I have couple of clarifications.
    1) I applied for PF transfer in July-2012 but it still I didnt see the status updated. Can I do that again online now?
    2) I have my e-passbook downloaded from Jan-2012(new job) to till now, I didnt see any intrest added in Apr-2013, saw it on Apr-2012.
    3) I tried to download my earlier E-passbook(before Jan-2012), it says its not available and will recieve an sms once its available. But I placed the request more than a month before, but still its not.

    Thank you !!!

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Sridhar

      1- It has been long time. You should file your transfer application again preferably online.
      2- Download your passbook after sometime It will be updated. EPFO takes time to update the passbook. Also they are introducing real time balance status. You can get to know about the current balance
      3- Yes Sridahr same happened with me. Try know your EPF balance facility at least you will be able to know the balance.

      Thanks for appreciation
      Cheers

    Hi Chandrakant,

    I have pf account with rs. 36,000/- , i left job on 1st july 2013 without serving notice period, i got relieving letter for the same. then i approached hr for pf money- company hr is asking me to pay rs 45,000/- for not serving notice period and without it they will not process my pf withdrawl form,

    i am in bangalore, my pf account is maintained in delhi epfo regional office, now i dont have job and i want to withdraw it,

    can you please guide me to withdraw my pf money,
    can i withdraw it online? or is it possible if i submit withdrawl forms in bangalore epfo office?

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Nagendra
      Your Employer can’t deny to process your EPF claim. It against the EPF rules. So next time you communicate with your employer in writing Also you can mark your mails to your regional PF commissioner. Also tell your employer in straight words that you are going to take legal action. I think this should solve your problem.
      Either you can get your PF money without attestation of employer. For that you have to fill the EPF and EPS withdrawal form yourself and get it it attested by any of these
      -PSU Bank Manager
      - Gazetted officer
      - Magistrate
      - Postmaster
      - Notary

      Send this Form to the regional PF commissioner stating the behavior of your employer. If you have any proof attach it also. Wait for at least a month. If it do not get processed you can file RTI also.

      I must say that no one can take your EpF money. It belong to you. Please do share your experience further with us.

            RECEIVED ON 04.11.2013 ,
            REJECTED ON 14.11.2013,

          • nagendra reddy says:

            My withdrawal form was rejected,
            i didnt get Rejection letter, but i am assuming the reason for rejection could be:
            1) i gave HDFC bank account details in form (as mandatory is ‘scheduled bank’ account as mentioned in forms)
            2) forms were attested by Notary public
            3) i mentioned my present employer name & address, but actual employer name in pf statement is old employer name(before acquisition)

            So I applied again,
            the documents i submitted are:
            1) SBI cheque & details
            2) forms attested by SBI Bank Manager
            3) i mentioned employer name & address (as per that is in pf statement)
            4) and i also submitted ‘Indemnity Bond’ attested by notary – this is for declaration that i left service and am not working presently,

            indemnity bond format available at: http://www.jagoinvestor.com/2012/11/withdraw-your-epf-without-employer-signature.html

            Hoping Approval this time…:))

            Mishraji, I will update my application status further.

        • nagendra reddy says:

          Hi Mishra,

          When i spoke with sbi bank manager regarding pf withdrawal, he attested the forms after verifying bank account details, On both the forms (10c & form 19), where employer signature is required-he attested there.

          He asked me will this forms get approved? nowhere it is mentioned asking bank manager to sign, because it is mentioned asking ‘employer signature/ authorised official’ on form 10c
          And ‘designation & seal’ on form 19.

          I ask you, will my forms get approval??

          If not approved then i have to transfer after getting job. (only option i am left with).

          Thanks,

            Dear Sir/Madam,
            This is with reference to your Grievance registered vide Registration Number DELSO/E/2013/07696.
            It is informed that your grievance is being treated as non-actionable due to the following reason(s):
            Withdrawal claim forms 19 & 10C have been returned to the member vide letter dated 03.12.2013 with a request to re-submit the same along with service proof or ID proofs.

            Therefore, we are closing your grievance from this office.Please quote the same in your future correspondence.

          • Nagendra Reddy says:

            Hi Mishra,

            I applied again (third time).

            as per the greivance i filed says:: Withdrawal claim forms 19 & 10C have been returned to the member vide letter dated 03.12.2013 with a request to re-submit the same along with service proof or ID proofs.

            I didnot get any any letter or forms returned by them, so i again went to SBI bank and got attested on both forms, then sent to epfo delhi south along with ID proofs & service proofs copies, letter to officer/pfc,

            One rupee stamps are not available now in post office, so got them at rs.10 each stamp in some roadside shop.

            Hey Mishra…

            I think It is not possible to withdraw PF money without employer attestation.

            I reapplied for pf withdrawal (with sbi bank manager attestation on forms) as per their request in greivance filed by me,
            Again they rejected, i again filed GRIEVANCE ON 16/12/2013,
            reply on 18/12/2013 is follows–
            Details of Final Reply : You are advised to submit claim forms duly attested by the authorised signatory of the establishment.

            DELHI SOUTH OFFICE
            FORMS RECEIVED ON 11.12.2013

            GRIEVANCE REPLY ON 18/12/2013

            Actually I didnt had any idea what PF deduction was for in payslips, but I was just curious about withdrawing once i came to know it is given back to us.
            There are still many like me who thinks this deduction is mandate in salary :|

            I have read your other blogs as well, they are really helpful financial tips in real life.

            Details of Final Reply : You are advised to submit fresh forms to this office duly filled along with service proof and ID proof. You must enclose an application regarding non attestation from the employer for some reason. This office will depute an Enforcement Office to get the claim forms attested from the employer.

            can you please guide me what application should i enclose regarding non attestation from the employer. ?
            is there separate application for this or will some letter is suffice?

            if i apply again this will be my 4th time in filing withdrawal application,

            Thanks,

            • Chandrakant Mishra says:

              Hi Nagendra

              Actually You should state in separate application why you are bypassing the employer. You must give the reason as ‘non cooperation’ from the employer side, whatever it may be. Actually going directly to the EPFO is not the standard procedure because there is more chance of fraud through this way. That is why you have to clearly tell the reason behind opting direct application. If you have any Proof of non cooperation also attach that. There is no prescribed application form, you have to write in blank paper addressing to regional PF commissioner.
              Cheers Sir,

                Hi Mishra,

                Just saw your pm, thank you for following up,

                I applied again as told by them (mentioned above), didnot get any reply and when i checked for status this time my claim forms are not updated as received.

                But they are delivered to the pf office, i feel there is mistake in my application form. I assume it is like the canceled cheque should have my name printed on it, since my bank account is new with sbi i didnt had my name on cheque when i applied for pf :) .

                But whatever may the reason, After getting job i can transfer it and I dont like to opt for pf in my next job, since this pf cut will reduce my home loan amount eligibility (planning for home loan).

                So I gave up.

              • Nagendra Reddy says:

                Hi Mishra,

                I joined a new company last week,

                I requested to opt out of PF, and told them about form 11 and i have a option not to choose PF.
                The respective manager just said: membership of PF is MANDATORY!
                and opting out of it was possible 5 years ago, but now it is a mandate for all.

                I didnt wanted to talk much with them, since i was a new joinee & it was my first day at office.
                sadly i had to opt & sign those forms.

                Surprisingly a point in offer letter about PF states:
                Once we submit the forms to PF office, we does not have any control and we are not responsible for delays
                and issues related to the PF process. It is advisable that the employee follows-up with the PF authorities.

                Mishra, there is no such thing as PF is an Option, everyone has to go with the painfull process of withdrawal, transfer,
                changes etc..

                EPFO is not a trusted company, just google epfo frauds, you will find a lotof fishy news about it.

                Thanks,
                Nagendra.

    Hi Kumar
    Unfortunately I don’t have exact date for online withdrawal process. I Think even EPFO itself would not be sure about the exact date.

    Dear Mishra,

    Sorry, I couldn’t able to understand the Pension fund. Is it possible to withdraw it along with PF before 10 years. Please advise of the terms and conditions.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Laasya
      From your employers EPF contribution 8.33% of salary goes for pension. But it can’t exceed more than 541 rupees. This contribution ensures a certain pension to every worker after the age of 60. This amount is managed along with EPF. Whenever we transfer PF, pension amount also get transferred with it. If your EPF account is less than 10 years and you leave the service, You can withdraw the pension fund along with the PF. But if you have completed more than ten years in service then you can get only the pension that also after the age of 60

      Cheers

    hi,
    my name is vikash i left my last organisation 1 year back without notice period/without any information and now i want to withdrawal my PF amount. i have my PF number with me so please suggest me what i can do.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi vikash
      Legally your organisation can’t withhold your PF. It remains with the EPFO. But EPFO don’t give the PF money unless it is verified that your are the genuine person. Therefor employer attestation is sought. Employer can use this power and may not verify you. But relax with the online transfer system your new employer can also verify you. So don’t worry start with the online transfer process.

      Yours

    Dear Mishra,

    Could you please advise here:

    [1] I have just downloaded the EPF e-Passbook, and there it is shown as “Interest Updated upto 31/03/2011″. What happened to the interest after 31/03/2011 ? But date for the Closing Balance is shown as 07/10/2013, and no interest is added after 31/03/2011. I heard that interest will be added for the 3 years from the date of resignation.(My resignation date: 13-May-2010). I initiated PF tranfer to the current company 10 days back.

    [2] Some PF got “Diverted to Pension fund”, when I will get this pension fund.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Laasya
      Normally EPFO add interest after the end of the financial year. Further this is updated till 30 September of next financial year. In your case if you download the passbook it should show interest updated till 31/03/2013. As you have initiated PF transfer whole amount with interest will get transferred. Also check whether your previous employer submitted your contribution of PF till your resignation.

      Pension fund also get transferred with the pf money. You can also withdraw this money with the PF amount. But in case you have been in service for more than 10 years then you will get pension only. That also after the age of 60.
      Cheers

    I have a question. As mentioned by you in your earlier posts that we tend to forget to transfer our PF from our old organization. It so happened that my first job’s (almost 8 years back) PF amount is still lying in the account, however I don’t have the track of the PF number. I had been to my old organization however due to some technical up-gradation I was told that only data from 2007 onwards is available with them and since my resignation was in 2005, they have not been able to obtain any data regarding my pay-slip details and the respective PF number. I have the relieving letter as well as the employee ID of the previous organization but I don’t have the PF number. So what’s the procedure for obtaining the PF number? Any idea on this?

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Souvik

      Now you only hope is the regional PF office. Visit there with company name, Employee number and your personal details. They should provide you the PF number.

    I really appreciate your efforts and time to provide us with this detailed information.
    I am trying to withdraw the PF money from my first employer, IBM. I have received the confirmation from IBM and now, I need to submit my completed form, processed by IBM to Gurgaon PF Office.
    However, I am on-site now a days. I have few questions:
    1. Should I wait for the online withdrawl option to come up? I am waiting for that since July 01, 2013 but it’s already Sept end and I don’t see it.
    2. Is it necessary for me to be there while submitting my form at PF Office? Can my family members can go and submit that for me?
    3. Can I post my PF form to PF Office Gurgaon?

    Thanks again for the information.

    Thanks and Regards,

            • Chandrakant Mishra says:

              Sharma ji Namaskar
              Yes I can understand your long wait. But not everything is that bad. Online transfer will certainly reduce processing time because it does not involve transfer of papers. There would be transparency also. If employer deliberately do not attest your application you can take him to task by using RTI and making case against him.

            So, now, in how many days I can expect my money to hit my account? Is there any chance now that the withdrawal request can be rejected?

              It should take less than one month. There is a little chance of rejection. But if your company is cooperating and withdrawal request is genuine, there should not be any problem.

          My PF claim has been approved. Below is the status:

          Claim ID : GNGGNXXXXXXXXXXXXX
          Status : Claim Form 19 for PF Settlement AGAINST Member Account No (GNGGN00XXXX0000000XXXX) has been approved. Payment is under process.

          Claim ID : GNGGNXXX0000XXXXX
          Status : Claim Form 10C for Withdrawal Benefit AGAINST Member Account No (GNGGN00XXXX0000000XXXX) has been approved. Payment is under process.

          As the payment goes through NEFT, should I expect the fund to be transferred in another few hours now?

          Surprisingly, I am really happy to see the fast progress. Within 10 working days, the claim has been approved. Payment under process should not take more than a day I guess because of the NEFT.

            I have received the money transferred to my account today dated October 30, 2013.
            I submitted my form on October 14, 2013.

            So, total 16 calendar days (12 working days) it took overall, which I guess is quite good, looking at the complaints raised by many people.

            In terms of money as well, I got more than what I expected based on my calculations.

            Once more, salute to the assistance you are providing to the people selflessly.

            CHEERS!!!! It’s party time!!!! LOL..

            I know, it’s emergency funds (good amount indeed) and I’ll invest it cautiously. But, it calls for a small party for the efficiency of the EPFO department.

  196. Samit says:

    I was searching for information on how to withdraw from PF account, I came across this page, I must Thank you for providing such detail information. It is really amazing to see your reply for each and every questions asked (most of the time there are repeated/duplicate questions).
    I have few question regarding PF withdrawal, Visiting PF office to complete the process is out of question, I tried once in Bangalore, it’s seems, language is a biggest problem here (I don’t understand any South Indian Language). Next option would be ‘PF Consultants’,
    Question 1:- Do you think they are helpful ? I know, one of my friend who failed to get his PF money (through pf consultants).
    Question 2:- What would be the best reason to specify (in terms of getting approval from PF office) (Note:- I have completed 12yrs of work, I have a house and want to go for the next one, any of the following would be fine with me)
    a. PF money to close my previous house loan ( Bank – Oriental Bank OF Commerce, Builder – Local builder of Bangalore)
    b. To buy new flat / plot (Location – Bangalore or any other city)

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Samit
      Thanks for kind words.

      Ans 1- PF consultants are there to ease your hassle, to do paperwork and fast tracking your application through their contacts. So by paying them you can have these luxuries. Normally Approval or disapproval is not in their hands.
      Ans2- You can withdraw Pf money only for genuine need. They will not sanction it for foreclosing the home loan. You can withdraw money for buying the house for self dwelling. Actually we should understand that EPF is forced saving for our retirement years. Why it is forced? Because many of us are unable to assess the retirement needs. You will agree that sometimes this type of forced saving would become very helpful in challenging times. In my opinion (of course you did not ask) You should not put your retirement money in property market. Markets are volatile, property prices can’t always rise in fast pace.

Please advise if online PF withdrawal is available or any expected date? I didn’t withdraw/transfer my previous company PF account and its already 3.4 years over. I heard settlement has to be done within 3 years, is it possible to withdraw my previous PF account now.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi laasya
      Yes EPFO promised to settle PF transfer and Withdrawal within 3 days after the start of online process. But they are repeatedly delaying to start this facility. Now as you are loosing interest and there is no certainty about online withdrawal, hence you should apply for offline withdrawal. It takes one month average time to settle.

    Hi Mr.Mishra,

    I was working in company in 2011 for one year and left the company and joined a new one, after joining the new one i have applied for transfer of of my PF from the old company PF number to the new company PF account, its almost more than one and half year, but i dont know whether the PF amount is transfered. When i checked in online with my old PF account its showing the amount is settled, but when i check the balance of the new account the amount is not reflection. I tried downloading the passbook and see, but it was not reflecting in that also.
    Kindly let me know how can i check the transfered amount.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Mr Arun

      Please Check the date until your account is updated. I think it would be till 31st march 2012. EPFO gives the balance of last financial year. And it is reflected till 30th September. It means that till today we can see the balance as on 31st March 2012. You should wait till this month after that check again.

    Hello Mr. Mishra,

    Is it necessary to have a savings account to withdraw the PF money? The HR of my wife’s company told some thing really bizarre, we need to have a savings account or in case we do not have one, we need to convert the salary account to savings account, post which only the PF money would be transferred. The HR didn’t accept the PF form filled out by us as it was a salary account. I never came across such a problem myself in past. Please suggest.

      Even I am surprised after reading this. Salary Account is itself saving account. HR must have some misunderstanding. To avoid your stubborn HR you can open another saving account. It has become very easy now.

    Hello Mr. Mishra

    We appreciate your good job.

    I have left my organization in Sept. 2013.My ex-employer is unwilling to sign pf claim form.As per the above article for online pf withdrawal the onus of form verification lies with the PF office.
    In case i send the pf withdrawal form through online system will it be much more hassle free for me as the pf office will have to get the claim form verification shall be done by pf office with the employer?
    Also do you have any idea when this facility is expected to begin (tentatively)?

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Yes Mr Aditya
      Online EPF transfer will can save you from the tantrums of employers. While this is very useful facility, EPFO is very slow in implementing this. I hope that this service will sart in this financial year.

  203. SANJAY KUMAR says:

    I had left my job in Feb’13.
    Earlier in Mar’12 my employer had changed the PF office from West Bengal to Jharkhand and accordingly had taken my signature on the transfer form.
    But as on date my PF amount is with West Bengal office (up to Mar’12) and a separate PF amount with Jharkhand office (from Apr’12 to Feb’13).
    Interest on PF amount for 2012-2013 does not appear any where.
    Please let me know how can I merge both PF and withdraw them.
    Also please let me know the status of online PF transfer/withdrawal.
    Thanks

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi Sanjay
      In your case there may be that your pf account could not be transferred yet. Talk to your HR department and if required fill the transfer form again. Interest is calculated at the end of financial year. This calculation usually reflects after 30 September. So wait some more days. Online transfer and withdrawal may take 2-4 months more.

    Hi Chandrakant,
    I wanted to check my pf balance. But the site shows its invalid. PF No. on my payslip is 19 digit alphanumeric. I think it should have been shorter than this. How can i find my real PF No.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hi sushil
      You must have correct pf number. there are also 5 column to fill while getting PF balance
      First coulmn – 2 characters (it will be filled itself as you must have chosen the state)
      Second coulmn – 3 character of your city/area (it should be prefilled as you must have chosen the epf office)
      Third coulmn – 7 characters (it is your establishment code)
      fourth coulmn – 3 characters
      fifth column – 4 characters

      you can also get the first 15 characters of PF number from this link by searching your employer.

    Dear sir
    how can apply epfo online please help me.

    • Prathap Reddy says:

      EPFO has not yet launched the online facility. Even EPFO is not sure about when they are going to make this happen.

      I believe it is loss to EPFO if they make online & hassle free of PF (transfer and withdrawal) process,
      Because of manual procedure followed now, most of us leave our PF money in PF accounts (without withdrawing or transferring) after changing job, this money (hundreds of crores) eventually lies in the account of EPFO unattended.

      which is what they wanted,

      scenarios where even small amounts piles upto CRORES

      1) if employee works for a company for 4-6 months and absconds (for without serving notice period) and leaves PF money in account itself (cuz he absconds, he cant go back to HR for PF) :: thousands of such cases ….

      2) Guys dont follow up for transfer (since manual procedure is not cake buy), most of us think ok, let it go….

      3) companies dont co-ordinate well with people who have resigned ( this happens in most cases)

      4) other disputes…….& rules & regulations

      etc…

      —————————————————————–

      Is there any way or rule for Not opting for PF while joining company?, is it must & mandatory to have PF while joining any company?

      • Prathap Reddy says:

        If my salary (basic + DA) is more than Rs. 6500 /-, then do i have a choice not to opt for PF account while joining company ??

        • Chandrakant Mishra says:

          Yes Prathap, You can opt out of PF account while joining company. Tell the HR in beginning.

        • Chandrakant Mishra says:

          Hi Kumar
          Let me clarify that it is the responsibility of the employer to collect PF of their employees and submit to the PF office regularly. Employee do not play any role in this. employee come in the scenario at the time of transfer and withdrawal. If you are a employee you should relax now. For your satisfaction you can check your pf balance after some months.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Thanks Sagar.
      If you have left your Indian employer more than 3 years ago then you should not wait for online process because in that case you loose the interest on your amount. Else you can wait for online process because it would be hassle free.

    Hello Mr. Mishra,

    I had transferred my PF fund from my one of my previous organization to another one in 2009. Now I have changed to another organization and wanted to transfer the combined fund to the current one.

    Now when I check the statement of the earlier PF from EPFO website it does not reflect the transfer whereas after checking from local PF office I have come to know that the amount was successfully transferred 23/05/2012. Now should I go ahead with the transfer hoping that all the amount would get transferred or go as per the statement which does not reflect the fund being transferred even today?

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Check thoroughly your previous balance should be there under the head of transfer. Also you can use know your EPF balance facility of epfo. After this you should go for the transfer.

        You should first transfer your amount from earlier account to recent one. After the completion of this process you should withdraw the money. By this you can avoid the tax.

          One last question, does transfer of PF mandate that the person should be working with an organization or they really don’t need authorization from the both employers(as I am employed with none)? Do I still need to go via the offline/paper mode or is the online EPF transfer process going to be available in the near future?

          • Chandrakant Mishra says:

            For transfer it does not matter that you are currently working with both the employer. Employees use this facility to club their amount and tenure. If you are not in hurry you can wait for few more months. EPFO is working on online process however they are slow. I assume that the will be able to start this facility at least in this financial year.

      Employer can not hold your epf. It is your money with EPFO. You can initiate your withdrawal or transfer process yourself. If you employed elsewhere you should transfer this. Wait for online transfer process you would easily get transferred your amount.

    Please guide.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      You don,t need any copies for online transfer. Your employer will verify your account. But I advise not to withdraw your money. Transfer your epf account to new one. It is not a tedious process. Till today online transfer not started, you can take the offline route give the filled form to your new employer, it will do the rest of transfer procedure. Within one month your epf will be transferred in new account.

    2. If transfer from dormant account is possible?

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Hello Desh Pande ji

      1. Realistically it should be seven working days. Give 2-4 days to employers and 2-3 days to EPFO. 1-2 days may be wasted on timing of application.
      2. Transfer of dormant/inoperative account is possible.

      Thanks

      Hey,

      Online system is not yet live, they had given 15th August to be the date but as usual..nothing yet.

      • Chandrakant Mishra says:

        Yes Nishant

        I am also waiting. Now I think we should not rely on the given dates of EPFO.

      Of course Anuj. You can withdraw your PF account. Fill the form and Go to your previous employer’s HR. They will forward your application. Online facility will also start soon, you can take advantage of that also.

    Hi,

    I worked for 3+ years in my previous company. Am eligible to withdraw my PF? pls suggest.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Sunil

      If PF is deducted from your salary for a month only then you can withdraw it after quitting job. But if you are switching the job then you must transfer it to build a handsome corpus.

  237. Sachin says:

    So what do you recommend ?? I need to withdraw my PF of older company… Do I wait for online process or I continue manually ? Seeing that they are planning to launch online facility, I was thinking of waiting but actually I am in need of amount after 1 to 1.5 month

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      I think you should initiate offline process. Online facility not started yet. it may again postponed. Also there may be some technical hitch. EPFO Works like this only.

  238. Sachin says:

    Hi ChandraKant

    If suppose the online withdrawl link gets active by August end or so then How long will it take to get the PF amount into our respective bank accounts ? I mean , Will this online service only surpass the paperwork or the time span of getting the amount will also be short ?
    Regards:
    Sachin

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Both will Happen. According To EPFO in 80% cases it processes the EPF transfer and withdrawal within 30 days. With the start of online service this will come down to 3 days. But lets not be too optimistic, I think it should complete the process in a week.

    Hi,
    Thanks for nice information.
    If any one would like to withdraw from the EPF account (All amount) then does he get amount which are diverted to pension fund along with employee & employer share (in EPF account)? If yes then are there any forms to submit?

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Yes you will get the pension fund also if your epfo account is less than 10 years old. If you have completed 10 years of the service then you are eligible for Pension not the lump sum amount. To withdraw the pension amount you have to submit form-10.

    Dear Mr. Mishra,

    Thanks for the nice information. This will be of great help.

    Can you also let me know about the process for transfer of pension amount?

    Bikash Agarwal

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Dear Mr Agarwal

      Thanks for encouragement

      if you are referring employee pension scheme amount (EPS) then there is no separate process of transferring it. it get transferred with EPF. If you want to withdraw the pension amount then you have to fill the separate form.

    Indeed, they should just need to hire technology experts in developing smarter financial IT systems inside there belt. as simple as that. It will be 360 degree clear for all the parties, the employee/employer and the EPFO organization.

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Of course it not such a tough task. Everyone else is doing this since many years. But EPFO is making records for not doing the proper things. Disappointing !

    It will be a great relief!!! Can’t wait to have unique PF number and avoid transfer hassles. It should have been done long back though, it is a very simple matter. Isn’t it?

    • Chandrakant Mishra says:

      Yes Manoj, Actually the pace of EPFO is surprising. In banking we can transfer money to anyone in a day. Then why should EPFO should take such a long time and hassle to withdraw our money. There are lot of things to be done.
