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

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

new epf withdrawal process

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

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

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

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

Who can fill up & use these new EPF forms?

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

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

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

Step by Step process of withdrawing money from EPF account

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

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

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

check uan status

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

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

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

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

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

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

epf jurisdiction

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

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

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

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

EPF Withdrawal process to be online very soon

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

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

Should i sent them where my pf account is held (i.e.. maharashtra) ? or Where my previous work place is held(Andhra Pradesh)? Please help.

  77. S Rajan says:

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

    Thanks for your help

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

      1. Rajan says:

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

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

          1. Rajan S says:

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

            Thank you

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

            2. Rajan says:

    HI Manish,

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

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

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

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

  115. SUNIL says:

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

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

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

    -Sunil

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

      1. SUNIL says:

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

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

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

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

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

    Can you explain.

    Vivek

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

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

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

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

      2. Form 19 can be submitted offline

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

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

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

    Regards,
    Naveen J

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

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

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

    Thanks for the nice article and this great information.

    1. Hi Anant

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

    Hi ,

    I worked in one company for more than 3 years and resigned there joined to other company where I worked only for 3 months. Now my PF amount from the first company account is transferred to second PF account. Please suggest me how do I withdraw this PF. Is there something to do with reliving letter and PF? My UAN is active. How do I find out if the employer as digital signature?

    1. Nish says:

      Can I please get a reply here?

    2. If your EPF from where you want to withdraw is linked to your UAN and your KYC is updated, then you can apply for withdrawal online.

    I worked in a company for 4.5 years between 2002 and 2006. I left the company due to some personal reasons. I have my PF no with me but no UAN number. Later I joined another company where i got UAN. Can I withdraw my earlier PF using the UAN number provided by my present company as it is active. It would be a kind favor from you. Thanks.

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

  261. Thanks for the giving some good news

    Hi ,

    Thank you for sharing the details.

    I have one question

    Is Adhaar Card mandatory for this ?

    Best Regards,
    Gaurab

    1. Yes

      Aadhaar card is extremelly important document now. Better get it

  263. Rahul says:

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

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