PF withdrawal process

Last week I submitted forms for withdrawal of PF/EPF from my last company. It had to go back in loops two times in the absence of proper information on the process. So now that I have gained information on the PF withdrawal process, I am putting it in detail here for everyone of you who might need it.

Documents required to submit to your last employer for EPF withdrawal

  1. Form 19 (for EPF withdrawal)

  2. Form 10c (for EPS withdrawal)

  3. A blank cancelled cheque (this is required to ensure that account number and IFS Code are clearly visibly). The cheque should be of you as a single account holder and not a joint account cheque.

    Update : In July 2012, EPFO has declared that it will accept joint bank account only if the bank account is maintained with the spouse. Link to EPFO Circular

Instructions on how to fill Form 19

I have put instructions in red against all the rows that need to be filled. Right click and open the below images in a new tab and then click for zoom.

Form 19 Page 1

Form 19 Page 2

Instructions on how to fill Form 10c

I have put instructions in red against all the rows that need to be filled. Right click and open the below images in a new tab and then click for zoom.

Form 10c Page 1

Form 10c Page 2

On page 3, you will have to affix a Revenue stamp and sign across it. Thats it. You need not fill any other details.

Revenue Stamp availability in Bangalore

Post offices do not keep revenue stamps. I was able to get it from Koramangala BDA Complex for 5/- Rs. per 1 Re. stamp.
In Bangalore, affixing a revenue stamp is not required so companies in Bangalore accept the PF forms without it.

Know your claim status

Once your application is forwarded to the epf office by your employer, you can check your claim status on epfo website. You will also receive a sms from epfo stating that your application is received and is under process.

With all this information at your hand, I hope you would enjoy the process of submitting PF forms :)

Update: My PF money is transferred to my account electronically within a month of filing the claims.

    I've worked with two different employers i.e IBM Global and Concentrix.

    Since Jan 10 to Jan 11 (IBM Global)
    Since Feb 11 to Sep 13 (Concentrix)

    I have transferred my IBM's PF account to Concentric PF account on Nov 2012. Now I want to withdrawl my PF as I've completed 5 yrs.

    Shall I need to submit documents to my first employer (IBM) or previous one (Concentric)?

    approved and verified the forms and sent it back to me.
    So, should i consider it as that i should send it to EPF office.
    if yes, then should any other form be submitted with this?
    and at what address should i send this?
    My EPF office is at New Delhi, North.

    seriously this link has been very helpful in withdrawing PF from my previous employer. thanks.

    i wanted to withdraw pf now from the company i was working before joining the previous org. but the problem is i was working in tht org during 2004-2006 (part time - call center). i left that org without getting a releaving letter .

    is there any way i can withdraw on my own/without submitting any docs in the company. like directly going to EPF office ?

    Kindly suggest.
  • neha
    01 Nov 14
    Employer's signature/stamp is usually required on the withdrawal forms. If however, you are unable to get it, you can get it notorised in the place where employer has to sign, submit to pf office with your covering letter indicating the reason why you can't get previous employers' signature.
    You can get it attested by your bank manager also. Please read "What to do if I don't have good terms with the previous employer" in my previous post - <a href="http://www.humlog.net/finance/faqs-epf-withdrawal">Frequently Asked Questions on EPF Withdrawal</a>

    Hi,
    I have resigned in my previous company on 8th Sept'14. Now I want to withdraw my PF amount via Form 19 & 10 C. I don't have any Single name account in Punjab National Bank , but I have a JOINT Account ( First name is mine & second name is my Wife's name--either or survivor facility ). Will this JOINT ACCOUNT be considered by the EPF Authorities as correct and will they grant it ? Can I submit both -a photo copy of my PASS BOOK's first cover page as well as one cancelled cheque ? If only one is required then which is better option ? Please HELP !
  • neha
    08 Oct 14
    Yes, if you don't have any single account then you can give Joint account number. (In July 2012, EPFO has declared that it will start accepting joint bank account but only if the bank account is maintained with the spouse.) Only cancelled cheque is enough.

    Hi
    I have given a joint account cheque (account is joint with my spouse for PF withdrawal). The HR person says it should be of a single account but as per the Circular No. WSU/17(2)/2000 dated 15th June 2012, a joint account cheque is allowed provided the account is with the employees spouse. Please confirm if this is correct.
  • neha
    21 Sep 14
    Yes, you are right. Now it can be a joint account (with spouse only). You can show this circular - http://www.epfindia.com/Circulars/Y2012-13/WSU_7637.pdf to your HR and convince them. Please update us how it goes. Your information would be helpful to other readers as well. Thanks.

    hey neha....I am already done with my PF process. Wish I had seen this earlier though...would have saved me lot time :-). This is very good information for all those people out there. PF filling process can be a pain in the neck for those who dont change jobs often :-)
    I got a couple of questions. Does one need to fill for gratuity separately or does this amount come automatically with the PF? Also, does the employer contribution and employee contribution come together and gets credited into your account one time?
  • neha
    02 Sep 14
    Gratuity amount will not come with PF. Yes, employee contribution and employer contribution comes together.

    Hi,
    My company HR has told me to submit the documents (present with me) after two months?
    HR has submitted from the Employer side.
    How to check if i can submit them early?

    Thanks,
    Abhijit
  • neha
    01 Sep 14
    You should not submit before 2 months AND HR cannot submit anything (for your EPF withdrawal) until you send your documents to your employer.

    Hi your information was very helpful for me, I have one query, I left the job on 31-may 2013 and till now i didn't apply(transfer / withdraw) for PF, now i want to withdraw my PF amount, is it possible to withdraw it, i had two doubts
    1st doubt - does this one year gap will have any impact on withdrawing my PF
    2nd doubt - As per rule a person can withdraw PF only if he/she is unemployed

    Please help me in this to resolve the above said issue,

    Thanks in Advance
  • neha
    25 Aug 14
    1) One year gap will have no impact on withdrawing EPF
    2) Yes, legally you should not withdraw if you are employed. You are supposed to transfer the old account to the new one.

    03 Sep 14
    Hi Neha,
    Thank you for ur information, one more doubt, now for PF process GOVT had created a UAN, and some of them told me that it is not possible to withdraw the PF amount here after, because UAN no is been created for all the individual so they will keep track of your PF records, so we can only transfer the amount, can't withdraw the PF amount, is it so., if it is yes, please tell me some ideas to withdraw it, since i need that amount for my mother's operation. please help me
  • neha

    Hi, you can prematurely withdraw EPF amount in some special conditions. Medical Treatment of parents is one of such conditions. You can withdraw the total corpus or 6 times your Monthly Basic Salary (Whichever is lesser). For more details - http://anandvijayakumar.blogspot.in/2010/12/can-i-withdraw-money-from-my-employee.html

    Hi ,
    I just wan to know , when we leave job with exp of 2 years and 10 months and i chose to withdraw the EPF and EPS .... Can i withdraw both because my company told me that if you withdraw it , u will get only EPF but will loose EPS!!!!
    is it so ?
    And how much my EPF amount should be?
    I worked in Polaris Software Labs: Mumbai
    2 years and 10 mons
    my basic pay is 7012
  • neha
    17 Aug 14
    You will get both. Although you won't get the full amount of EPS. The amount you get as EPS would be calculated as per table D mentioned in my article - http://www.humlog.net/finance/calculation-of-epf-amount-with-interest#overlay-context=finance
  • Monika

    I opted for withdrawal , i filled both(19 and 10c) forms and sent to EPFO office . I got my PF amount but they rejected my EPS,
    But they didnt send me any claim rejection reason as well !!!!!!

    My service was of 2 years and 10 months , is it like if we do not transfer the amount to next organisation, we loose EPS part?
  • neha
    17 Aug 14
    No, I got my EPS part in a similar case as yours. Don't know why it got rejected.

    You can download and fill the claim forms 10C & 19. Try to get signature of your ex-employer on them. If not possible, you can get them attested by your bank branch manager or any gazetted officer and submit it to the area PF office, where your co. is registered.

Can I apply for the PF as its 2 months now when I left the company. Is there any letter or approval required from the company to withdraw the PF? Please advise..

    Appreciate your quick response.

    Thanks.

    As far as I understand, you can apply for PF withdrawal. However, your PF forms need to be attested by your employer before they can be forwarded to EPF office.

    You should submit the documents to the regional EPFO where your account was maintained. If your previous company is in Hyderabad, its highly probable that your EPF account was maintained by Hyderabad EPFO. But still double check with your prev. employer

    Really Appreciate for your information on EPF, which makes thing very easier in getting the PF amount.

    I have a query, please help in resolving the below,
    I had worked for 18 months, so my Pension Fund is 9738, but after submission of form 10C, I got the amount 9737.
    -> Please suggest how much money should I get
    -> Also suggest whom should I contact to get my actual amount, if the amount which I got is incorrect.

    3) In order that I can calculate your pension amount, I need to know your basic pay.

    Hi Neha,

    ->With the help of E-passbook i came to know my pension amount is 9738
    ->Yes only Re 1 difference, but I have worked for 18 months so i guess my pension amount should be (9738*1.99=19378) but I have got only 9737
    ->My basic pay was 8400

    Please help with my confusion, also suggest whom to I contact to get my correct amount.

    Hi Praveen,

    Hi,
    I liked this blog and I hope it can help me like it did for so many people.
    Previous employer is asking for Id proof, address proof, PAN card along with the crossed cheque as additional documents for filing form-19/10C.
    I didn't find any reference to additional documents other than crossed cheque. Can you please let me know if the rules have changed at EPF office or it's just my ex-employer is asking for it for it's own use. Again if these documents are required, please share any info on which documents could be used for Id/Address proof.
  • neha
    10 Jun 14
    As far as I know, these additional documents are not mandatory but if your employer is insisting, give them. PAN card would suffice as ID proof.

    My PF Status shows " Payment approved for payment through cheque and is under process". Does this mean it will sent by cheque? Because I have requested for a direct credit in my account and not cheque. Also I furnished all the Bank details in the form as mentioned. Please advice.
  • neha

    It will come as a direct credit in your account. EPFO sends cheque to your bank which is then credited to your account electronically.

    I was employed for 4 years and 3 months. My EE is 49674 and my ER is 25987 as of 3 years and 9 months - as per the message received from EPFO. I dont know what my 10c pension amount is . I received sms informing me that both my EFP and 10c claims have been sent for payment. I received 9975 from EPFO yesterday. I calculated the 10c amount based on teh calculations you have provided. Even if the amount was 521 per month, my 10c amount for 50 months should be more than 10K. Is PF payed i installments now ? if yes how is the first installment of 9975 calculated ? In how many days can i expect the rest ? Do they send us a detailed doc on how the amount was calculated ?
  • neha
    07 May 14
    If your basic salary was > 6500/- at the time of leaving , then your EPS should be around 26K. EPFO does not send any document regarding the calculation of amounts. However they provide the E-passbook facility wherein you can verify the amounts. Read more about E-passbook - http://www.humlog.net/finance/epf-account-online-e-passbook

    You need to send the application to your previous employer. They will sign it and send to the respective PF office. In case you want to send it directly to EPF office, just put the address of the state where your EPF office is located.

    I have submitted claim form a while ago. I got two messages with claim ids.
    I have got a message saying payment under process through cheque.
    Actually, i have opted for NEFT and enclosed a cancelled cheque also.

    When they say payment through cheque, do they send a physical cheque to the addree or its elctronic transfer?

    Thanks in advance..

    Its something like EPFO sends a cheque to your bank and bank does the electronic transfer to your account. For you, it will be a electronic transfer in your account.

    Hi,

    I have heard that if you are working somewhere then you cannot able to withdraw the PF of your last organisation. You only can withdraw in such condition if you are not working anywhere. For the same they want the affidavit (on Stamp Paper) on which you need to mention as you are not working anywhere.

    Please let me know that as currently If I’m going to apply for PF withdrawal so do I need to submit an affidavit with the documents or not?. Currently I’m working with another organisation and want to withdraw the PF of last organisation which I left 1.5 Year back.

    Also if it is not required then what should I need to do as the last organisation is asking for the same.

    Regards,
    Roshan

    You should not withdraw your EPF if you are currently working. Just apply for transfer of that old EPF account to your current employer.

    You should send the forms to the regional PF office which means the PF office where the company is located. Much easier would be to send the forms to the employer...they would forward it to the regional PF office themselves.

    2)money in EPS deducted for 10 years only or the time you serves (if more than 10 years...)
  • neha
    28 Jul 13
    1. if the employee completes 10 years of the service, the withdrawal option ends and the member becomes eligible for receiving pension after the age of 58. it is not a loss of money as you will get pension till you survive. On the death of the employee, members of his family—whom he has nominated—are entitled for the pension.
    2. money is deducted till the time you serve.

    First check your balance in both the PF accounts. Enter "PY/KRP/0035411/000/2288" for Bangalore account on <a href="http://epfoservices.in/epfo/member_balance/member_balance_office_select.php">this</a> page. And "TH/THA/0043037/000/53142" for Maharashtra account.

    You can transfer the amount from the old PF to new one by submitting Form 13

    Hi

    Thanks for wonderful post, I have a query.

    1. I was working with my previous Employer, and it's been 3 years I haven't withdrew my PF. Do I need to file an Affidavit

    2. I was transferred from One branch to another, and hence have a different PF Account number, problem is my Org has my Original DOJ, and not the one on which I was transferred to Hyderabad Location. Do we need to have exact DOJ on Forms?

    Regards
    Amit

    Hi Amit,

    1. Yes, I think an affadavit is required. Please read more on this <a href="http://www.citehr.com/151764-indemnity-bond-affidavit-pf-withdrawal.html">here</a>

    2. Yes, I think you need to put an exact DOJ. You can confirm this from your employer.

    Dear Sir,
    While submitting the PF form to the PF Office, If mobile No. is not mentioned how will I get the information that my application is under process. Should I again approach the office for giving mobile No. Please advice.
    Thanks in advance and hope to receive your advice soon.

    I have not mentioned my mobile number while submitting the claims, still I received sms alerts. I think they recorded/linked my number to my account when I checked my account balance online on the EPFO website.

    I have submitted forms 19 and 10-c in my previous organization by filling the salary account bank branch details.
    But now I had to close that account due to financial constraints. So, what should I do to get the amount?

    It would be grateful if anyone can answer my concern.

    Thanks Neha.

    Re posting my query.

    After going through many of your comments, I feel like submitting the EPF withdrawal form in a new financial year will not cost you any tax, provided that your EPF comes under 190000 or so(the minimum slab & the person is not in india or no income).

    Withdrawing PF(for person leave India) in a new financial year does make any difference from tax deduction point of view?.

    Thank You,
    Mohamed

    The information is really helpful. Couple of questions:
    1) Do we need to submit both forms on all cases? I have served for more than 7 years?
    2) Does the cheque leaf needs to be signed & cancelled?
  • neha
    31 May 13
    1) Form 19 for EPF withdrawal and Form 10c for pension withdrawal. If you want to withdraw both, fill both forms.
    2) Sign is not necessary. Just cancel it.

    Hi,

    I really appreciate your effort in making the process simpler with the pictures. I followed the same way you have mentioned above. But I have few questions heard in middle of this process.

    1. The EPF+ EPS is taxable if the person served less than 5 years (In my case 4.8 years)
    2. Do I need to submit something like form16 for tax exemption on the amount the PF dept. is going to deposit?.
    3. Are we going to get any receipt after submitting the forms for withdrawal?.

    Waiting for your update!.
    Thank You
  • neha
    16 May 13
    1. Yes, EPF is taxable if the person has served less than 5 years. The payment received by the individual in respect of the employer’s contribution along with the interest accrual thereon is taxed as “salary”. Interest on the employee’s contribution is taxable as “other income”. Payment received in respect of the employee’s own contribution is exempt from tax (to the extent not claimed as a deduction earlier). Source: <a href="http://taxguru.in/income-tax/withdrawal-provident-fund-account-completion-years-maturity-taxable.html">taxguru.in</a>

    2. There is no provision for tax exemption on EPF withdrawal if service is less than 5 years, so submitting any form for same is pointless. Furthermore, Form 16 is a document that is issued to salaried personnel in India by their respective employers. It furnishes various details such as Salary Income components of the Employee, Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) by the Employer, and Tax paid by the Employer to the Income Tax Department.

    3. You will get a sms from the EPFO office that your forms are received and are under process. Till then, you have to keep the speed post receipts as a proof of sending the forms to EPFO.

    Hi, i worked in small company in chennai for around 6 months and left that company in 2011. when i approach same company for PF withdrawal now, they told that it can be only transfered to new office account and can't be withdrawn since PF deduction not completed 7 months. Is there any rule for withdrawal saying that minimum 7 months pf deduction like that.
    i urgently in need of my money. that old company asking to get transfer to new comp pf a/c. but i'm not interested to transfer and only want to withdraw. what i have to do next??? Thanks in advance. pls help....
    Thanks,
    Saba.
  • neha
    25 Apr 13
    Hello Saba,

    The rule is that if you worked for less than 6 months then you are not eligible to withdraw your pension amount but you can withdraw the PF amount (Your total EPF amount comprises of 2 parts: one is pension , other is PF. see <a href="http://www.humlog.net/finance/calculation-of-epf-amount-with-interest">EPF amount breakup</a> ). So you just submit form 19 for PF withdrawal.

  • neha

    As written in the post, canceled check is required , no ID proof need to be attached. You just submit the application to your employer , if its in another state you can speed post the form along with the documents to your employer. They will process your form and submit to the respective PF office.

    In case, you are not able to contact them, you can try intimating the matter to your employer. They should help out.

    I want to opt out of the PPF pension scheme, as it is very cumbersome to keep account of small amounts. Is it possible to get 100% pension commuted and to opt out of pension? If yes, How? Thanks in advance.
  • neha
    13 Feb 13
    I think its not possible. You will only get a part of EPS if you apply for the early withdrawal ( which you can do if you are not employed for 2 months).
    Earlier there was a provision under EPS allowing commuting of one third of monthly pension by paying 100 times the original monthly pension. However, the amended scheme w.e.f 26 Sep’ 2008 doesn’t allow it anymore. (source: <a href="http://www.themoneyquest.com/2012/02/epf-eps-facts-you-should-know-about.html">www.themoneyquest.com</a>)

    Hi,

    I have checked my EPF balance through epfindia.com/MembBal.html which shows EE Amount:96753 and ER Amount:59583 as a sum its around 1.56 Lac. But today evening only 25953 has been credited to my account which is very far less from what i expected.

    here is my claim status

    Claim ID : TBTAM130100005606
    Status : Claim Form 10C for Withdrawal Benefit AGAINST Member Account No (TBTAM00487710000000753) has been approved. Payment is under process.

    Claim ID : TBTAM130100005604
    Status : Claim Form 19 for PF Settlement AGAINST Member Account No (TBTAM00487710000000753) has been approved. Payment is under process.

    I got only one transaction to my account. Will there be one more transaction from them?

    Please any one help me out regarding this...
  • neha
    05 Feb 13
    The transaction you got is the EPS portion. You should receive one more transaction. See post : <a href="http://www.humlog.net/finance/calculation-of-epf-amount-with-interest">EPF and EPS Calculation</a>

    Signature of a gazetted officer is sufficient. Post your forms to your regional EPF office with a covering letter mentioning the reason why you can't get previous employers' signature. In case you have any proof of unsupportive behaviour from your employer, better attach it.

    Not sure why i got less..
    i got 2 epfo sms,one for form10c and other one for form 19.as per the above posts reply for the same query the amount should be credited seperately on the same date one for employee and other one for employer...If this is true i should be getting atleast minimum of Rs7000 as employee contribution(as per 9 months) but i got even less and only one credit..

    Hi Ramesh,

    I was wrong when I said that one entry on my account was for employee and other one for employer. I have rectified my reply and putting the same here -
    One entry is corresponding to the employee contribution and employer contribution while the other entry was EPS amount. For details, see this post - http://www.humlog.net/finance/calculation-of-epf-amount-with-interest.

    Probably you have got just the EPS part. Sometimes it takes a week for the other amount to come into your account. I will suggest waiting for a week.

    One option - is to submit form 13 to the present employer by which you can transfer the entire pf balance with previous employer to you present employer.

    Second option - fill up PF withdrawal form, get it notorised in the place where employer has to sign, submit to pf office with your covering letter indicating the reason why you can't get previous employers' signature.

    Third option - is to lodge a complaint directly with the Regional Provident Fund Commissioner of the region where your PF account is held. However, before submitting the complaint, I would suggest that you send a Registered Letter to the VP / AVP - HR of the company that you were working with and demand for an attestation of your PF documents and inform that in case they are not willing to do so, you would lodge a complaint directly with the PF Commissioner and would take necessary legal steps as well. Usually, the companies clear up the PF documents simply with such a threat. However, if they don't, Go ahead with you complaint to the Regional Provident Fund Commissioner whose address you can find from the website http://www.epfindia.com.

    Hi, thats a wonderful piece of info you have put on. Thanks a lot. I had just one query, where do we need the previous company stamp and signature? as per the pages, no where it is mentioned previous employer signature or company stamp. Does that means, if we know the PF account number, we dont need to go to previous employer? Confused about this. It would be very helpful if you can help on this. Thanks. Sushil

    Employer's signature/stamp is required on the forms. If however, you are unable to get it, you can get it notorised in the place where employer has to sign, submit to pf office with your covering letter indicating the reason why you can't get previous employers' signature.

    Regarding tax on PF amount:
    Your own contribution to PF is not taxable. The company contribution for less than 5 years is taxable income. If the total service is more than 5 years in two or more companies, the total company contribution is NOT taxable. If a firm is shut down and that is the reason for change of job or withdrawal, the company contribution is not taxable even if the length of service is less than 5 years.

    Hi, Thanks for the great job.
    I applied for pF withdraw and submitted above forms. I recieved 2 SMS, 1 for from 19 and other for 10C. They mention different claim id for each. So shall they credit money differently for form 19 and form 10C. I recieved on credit sms from PF which mentions very less amount. Can you please let me know about this.
  • neha
    28 Dec 12
    Yes, I also got different claim ids for both these forms in the sms. Regarding the amount transferred electronically - I got 2 entries for EPF in my account on the same date. One entry is corresponding to the employee contribution and employer contribution while the other entry was EPS amount.

    You have to fill form 10c and form 19. Ask your HR to send you both these forms. Fill both and submit in their office.

    Sir kindly tell me when excactly do we need to submit the application?? as I resigned with one month notice on 8th Dec I have submitted the form & the required documents. I was told by my HR that thety will submit the form only on 9th Feb 2013 & it will take 60 days for me to get the amount. so total 120 days ??? isnt that wierd??? please contact me on smitha.asha@yahoo.com
  • neha

    yes, it takes that much time. In all companies the withdrawal formalities are initiated only after 2 months from your last working day and it takes another 1-2 months for the amount to be credited in your account. For more information: http://www.citehr.com/199972-epf-withdrawal.html

    if they have rejected any form either form 10C or form 19 then what will be the next procedure to get the PF..how long it takes?...
  • neha

    You will have to fill the forms again and send them again.
    The time taken would be around 1-2 months from the date of receipt of forms by EPFO.

    Hi Ritu,

    You have to fill separate forms for separate PF accounts. In those different forms you can mention the same bank account and your pf money will be refunded in the same. Hope it helps.

    Hi,

    This page is so much useful! It is a one stop solution for all PF withdrawal form queries. God knows how much time I would have spent trying to find out what to fill in each place if I didn't see this page.

    I hope all those who are lost in the details of pf form filling will find this page sooner.

    Thanks a lot
