It has been 15 days since I left my organization. How I can withdraw my provident fund?

I recently withdrew my provident fund from the Wazirpur Office in New Delhi, India.

Here are some simple steps on how to withdraw your provident fund, which I have learned through my own experience.

· You can withdraw your provident fund after 60 days of your leaving the organization.

· In most cases, employer's HR Department gets the form filled up by the employee who has left the service and gets it dully attested and stamped and signed by the employee and the Managing Director or whoever is designated to sign the PF form. Then, HR people send a person to submit the application. In this case, there is very less work done by the employee and he/she is to just wait for the PF to come in his/her account.

· But in other cases, employees have to fill the application form on their own. Employees purchase a form from outside and get it signed and stamped from the employer and then submit for withdrawal.

· The most important things, which you have to be absolutely sure about, are reviewing your name, father's name, bank account number, bank name with full address of the bank, and some details written by your employer's HR Department on the form.

· Always crosscheck all the details before submitting the form because even a single detail, which is not matched, can lead to rejection of your application. One of my colleagues got rejected because there was no address of bank in the specified column and then it takes another 45 days long process to submit the application.

· Please always remember to take a photocopy of your PF application form with you. It will really help you out in case of a rejection.

· According to EPFO guidelines, it takes around 30 days to receive your money in your account but it is not true, even my money came after 45 days. Some candidates receive their money even after 60 days.

· There is a long queue at the PF office and it takes around 4 to 5 hours in the queue before the person on the counter will submit your application and give you the receipt.

· You can check the status of your claim online after 10 days of submitting your application. Just log on to google, write "epf" in the search column, click the first link epfo and you will be taken to the EPFO home page, then check for a button by the name of "KNOW YOUR CLAIM STATUS" click on the button and you will be taken to another page. On that web page, select your city for example "Delhi", press tab, select PF branch office where your PF is submitted for example "Delhi (North) Wazirpur, then enter your establishment code for example 12345, then insert extension code if any, and then employee number. Hit the button, GET CLAIM STATUS and you will directed to a page - Form 19 is Under Process. Your Claim is received on 14/01/2009 and is being processed. Kindly Try after 30 days from Submission. Form 10C is Under Process. Your Claim was received on 14/01/2009 and is being processed. Kindly Try after 30 days from Submission.

· In some cases, if it is not updated on the PF server, then it will show, "Your Claim Not Received By This Office".

So these were some simple steps for withdrawing your PF. In my case, I found "Your Claim Not Received By This Office" even after I received my money in my account. I do not know why but it was really serious for me when I was checking it online on a weekly basis before I got all the money in my account.

Besides these steps, there are some cases where an employee gets in a dispute with previous employer like leaving the service without notice and in this case, some employers do not sign up the PF form. For help in these type of cases, please visit this very good forum of right to information india website

thank you for this information. you know most of employees struggle most to get their PF after leaving the company. True Information from experience.

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Yes Kmadhav some of my friends and colleagues from previous organizations have waited for around 3 months to get their PF in their account after leaving the organization and there was one person I remember who got his PF in 5 months so waiting for 5 odd months is really debilitating and stressful. If you will go through this website http://www.rtiindia.org and http://www.citehr.com, you will get a lot of information on people who have been waiting for many many months.


Pratibha 7 years ago

Hi,

I just want to know few clarifications.

I shifted myself from mumbai to bangalore 4 yrs back.

currently in bangalore.I can get bangalore employer attested, but how should i approach mumbai employer...

Should i courier them application and ask then to send back attested copy.

your guidance will value add my effort.

Thanks in advance.

pratibha


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi Pratibha,

Number one is that you have not told me that your PF account number in which your money is deposited is the same for both employers, previous Mumbai and latest Bangalore employer and if yes you do not need to attest the form from your previous employer but if they both are separate and you have two PF accounts, then for the previous account, you can send your Mumbai employer the PF application form to get stampted and signed and also remember to ask them to fill in details in the form of the money they submitted in your PF account as it is very important. When they will send you back the application fully attested with all details, you can submit the application in your PF branch office for withdrawal.

For the new employer, if you are not working over there anymore, I have explained the steps in my article above.

If there is any dispute and the previous or new employer are not agreeing to sign it up, you can visit this very good forum for further help and instructions: http://www.rtiindia.org/

JOYCE DCOSTA 7 years ago

can i know how many days will it to take for PF payment to get cleared as my account number is HR/GGN/29023/10.

Please let me know the status at the earliest.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi Joyce, I have checked your status at the EPFO website and it is showing that YOUR CLAIM HAS NOT BEEN RECEIVED BY THIS OFFICE". Please tell me when you submitted your form at the PF office for the claim. Your company's name is SPA LIFESTYLE PVT LTD.

For me, it took exactly 45 days after submitting my PF claim form. For some of my colleauges from the previous organization it even took 50 days and some got cleared within 30 days... It all depends on them...

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Yes definitely Jayshree you can apply for your PF now also. The money would have increased a little bit and you will not be in loss but will in profit. Contact your previous company's HR department and fill up the form and wait for the PF to come to your bank account. Best of luck.

Hi,

Thanks for very informative post.

Actually I have one doubt, how much i would be taxed if i withdraw money before 5 years? On what basis its calculated?

Regards,


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

You will not be taxed on anything if you are talking about your provident fund rather you will get rebate for submitting PF. PF is calculated on the basis of 8% interest per year that means if you have 10000 INR in your account after one year comletion it will be 10800 INR.


SAKSHI 7 years ago

Hi

I had a querry wrt my PF.I had downloaded the two forms required,sent it across to my HR but after a month came to know that it cnt be sent for processing since the PF dept in mum(Head Office-Pantaloon Retail India ltd) accepts only original forms & not downloaded..dont knw hw correct this is.

Also where in delhi can i submiot my PF form & wd i be required to get sumthing signed from my previous employer.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Sakshi if your PF office is located in Mumbai, you cannot withdraw PF from a Delhi office. I really cannot believe that mumbai head office is refusing the downloaded form. How that can be? Then why they have uploaded the online forms and why they started this system. Sakshi regarding this, you can file an RTI application but that you can do later. It also might be possible that your employer is telling a lie. Seriously sometimes these HR people do like this. I am been through all these hassles that's why I am saying this.

But I am really confused as to your last statement, "Also where in delhi can i submiot my PF form & wd i be required to get sumthing signed from my previous employer."

Please tell me first what is your PF number, give me the whole number and I will assist you.

One more thing, you can submit your PF application with or without getting it signed from your employer. The procedure after signing I have listed in my hub above, read it properly and for without signs of employer, you can get your signature attested by a bank manager or a public notary and can submit the application to your PF Office.

or visit this link: http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/19466-how-withdraw-p...

If ex-employer not ready to cooperate, you can get your signature attested by: 1.Manager of a bank. 2.By any gazetted officer. 3.Member of the Central Board of Trustees./ committee/ Regional Committee (Employees' Provident Fund Organization). 4.Magistrate/ Post/ Sub Post Master/ President of Village Panchayat/ Notary Public. You might be having saving bank a/c (if with nationalized bank). you can get your signature attested by the manager of the same.


Sakshi 7 years ago

Hii thanx for replying..wat i wanted to knw was the PF forms are routed by the HR to MUmbai since the Head officde is there so I had a queery as to whether is it possible to submit the form in delhi since i am in dubai & wd only b visiting delhi & not mumbai anytime soon.

Also should i mail my HeadHR North zone on the same--as to whether downloaded forms are accpetable or not.

Also is there any change in the PF form interms of color???

Hi Shaifali,

First of all, you need only 60 days after leaving the job to apply for PF. If the PF office has rejected your claim, please contact your previous company's HR department and if they also refuse to do the needful, please contact:

Labour & Employment Department,

Ranjith 7 years ago

Hi,

I left my company two months back and i submitted my pf withdrawl form after sixty days from time of leaving.

Now HR people are saying that il be getting my PF next year

July as they will submit annual statements by next year only.

I left job by May-20-2009 and wht they say is il be gettin my pf amount only by july 2010. Is this a thing that actually happen as 1 year is a huge gap is what i feel


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

No they are misguiding you Ranjith. Do not fall prey to them. Just go ahead and ask them if they have submitted their annual statements last year or not. If not, then they will be in serious problem. It is not like that that you have to wait for July 2010 when they will submit their next year's annual statements. Also, they can also use their monthly statements if they do not have annual statements.

Do one thing: Ask them that why they are not submitting their monthly PF returns??? It is illegal I think.

If they do not solve your problem and are refusing to sign and stamp your form contact, your areas PF commissioner via http://www.epfindia.com site.


Philip 7 years ago

Hello Soni,

I left my previous organisation almost 8 months ago. However I have been misled constantly by the Finance Manager about my queries on the PF. Now he refuses to give me the Form 3A which is required by my present employer to get the PF amount transferred to the new PF account. I have two queries:

1.) Is the previous employer not legally obliged to provide the Form 3A ? If he is required to do so what is the supporting law or act ?

2.) Since my previous employer is uncooperative I do not expect him to sign or fill up any forms. So I have decided to withdraw the money in my previous PF account. Please advise on what forms I need to fill up and whose attestation I would need instead of my previous employer ? Also should I personally submit the forms at the PF Office and are any other documents required to be submitted alongwith it ?

3.) Is the employee not legally empowered to file a withdrawal 60 days from resigning ? In my case I resigned as of 31 December 2008. After 60 days when I called the PF office I was told the PF account no. given to me by my former employer does not exist. When I called the person responsible at the company he said the company would file returns only by April 25 and I will only be able to withdraw money after that. So this is almost 4 months after my resignation. Is this legal ?

Appreciate your help.

Thanks,


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

It is totally illegal Philip.

You are eligible for withdrawal of your PF after 60 days of leaving the organization.

Regarding your two questions:

1.) Is the previous employer not legally obliged to provide the Form 3A ? If he is required to do so what is the supporting law or act?

my answer: Yes your previous employer is legally obliged to provide you all the details and forms of your PF account. I do not know what is the law for that but why to go for such a long thing when you have a short route, just go ahead and write a letter to the RPFC in this regards and send them a filled out form no. 19 and 10c without your previous employer's signature and please download form 19 and 10C from EPFO website and you can fill the details. You can also get them attested by any notary public or a gazetted officer. Submit both these forms to your regional employees provident fund organization or EPFO. Them you will get the PF settlement from them. Employer's signatures are not mandatory in all cases.

2.) Since my previous employer is uncooperative I do not expect him to sign or fill up any forms. So I have decided to withdraw the money in my previous PF account. Please advise on what forms I need to fill up and whose attestation I would need instead of my previous employer ? Also should I personally submit the forms at the PF Office and are any other documents required to be submitted alongwith it ?

My answer: Please follow my answer for question no.1 for question no.2

3.) Is the employee not legally empowered to file a withdrawal 60 days from resigning ? In my case I resigned as of 31 December 2008. After 60 days when I called the PF office I was told the PF account no. given to me by my former employer does not exist. When I called the person responsible at the company he said the company would file returns only by April 25 and I will only be able to withdraw money after that. So this is almost 4 months after my resignation. Is this legal ?

my answer: IF the company is not providing PF number, then first find out from the company that have they paid all their dues till date. If they say yes, then place your final request to the HR department, even then if do not get a reply, then go to the PF office for directly raising a complaint with the PRO and explain the status on your PF claim and the person will definitely help you.

Best of luck.

Hi Bharath just go ahead and contact your HR department and they will assist you in filling up the PF form and if they say no, then also it is not a big issue for anyone because everything is simple. Just go ahead and try to fill up a rough forum before filling up an original form and you will be able to do it on your own.

Hi Soni,

I worked for whilpool of india for around 1 year then I left my job on nov 2002. I went for further studies I did not withdraw my PF. Now I am employed with other company.I have'nt withdrawn my PF from whirlpool. Can I withdraw it? if yes then how?

Thanks

Anuj


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Yes Anuj you can withdraw it at any time until and unless your new company is also providing PF facility. If it is, then you can transfer the old one or withdraw the old one from old company and get a new PF account via your new company.


anuj_aries13 7 years ago

Hi Soni,

Thanks for the information.

My new company is providing the PF facility now I have new PF account number.

Please tell the detailed procedure for:

1) the transfer of old PF to new PF account.

2) the withdrawl of old PF account.

Also do tell me which would be the easier transfer or withdrawl?

Thanks

Anuj


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Transfer is most easiest thing to do as it only involves giving your old PF account number to the new company and they will submit all your PF deductions to that old account but Anuj in your case, withdrawal of your previous PF account's money is the option left for you because as you have said you have already applied for a new account and both the old and new accounts cannot be merged if you are thinking to do that.

For withdrawal of your old PF account, just read this article and the following comments as all the information is already written over here...

Hello, I'm working in India (foreigner) for an American based company. We have just been told that we have to pay into PF as a condition of employment. I have checked with other foreign companies (American based) and their not involved in this process.

1. Do these companies risk fines for no compliance?

2. Is this correct, do I have to pay into this to work in India?

3. At ternmination of employment are there any additional difficulties withdrawing the money not being based in India?

4. Is there history of people not getting their money when paperwork is submitted correctly.

For both anony and Sam, please fill out the PF form and if your employers are not cooperating in PF withdrawal, please get your forms signed by a bank manager, etc. For information, read this article carefully and you will be able to get all the information you are looking for. These types of questions have been answered several times in this article. Best of luck.

Hi Raj,

Yes it is possible to withdraw PF from a company where you resigned before six months and can submit the form for that but you will only get the PF amount submitted and not the pension amount.


Mann Singh 6 years ago

Hi soni,

Is it is possible to withdraw the PF if employer had not deposited the PF for last two months due to financial crises & shutdown its operations.

Actauly i had left my previous company in Nov-2008 & my employer deposited the pf till Aug-2008. Now i want to withdraw the pf & there is no point of contact to employer.

what to do in this case pls suggest.


Sam 6 years ago

Hi Soni,

Thanks for ur above help, but the company which I worked was a Hyderabad based company and the PF has been deposited there. What can I do about it in regard to withdrawing the PF fund from there.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

@Mann Singh, see bro, it is not written anywhere in the books that if your employer has stopped submitting your PF for some months, you cannot withdraw your previous balance because it is your money. The thing is that your employer must have submitted his and your part of money in your PF account, leave alone the two months so my advice is to fill up the form, get it attested by some bank manager or designated officers I have listed above, and submit the PF form in the same PF office where your PF account belongs to and your employer has submitted the funds. Regarding submitting PF forms, attesting them without employer's signature, read this article in detail and you will find answers to each and every question you have in your mind. Go ahead and withdraw your PF. Best of luck.

@Sam, as I have told to Mann Singh, the same things apply to you plus one thing is for sure that you have to submit your PF form in the same office where you are holding your PF account. Up until now for withdrawing PF in India, there is no provision for submitting PF forms in any other office other than the office in which your employer and you have the accounts, so you have to submit your form in Hyderabad. Best of luck to you too.

You have very less time left as you have to go to Australia so it would be better to request your employers or contact PF commissioner ASAP to avoid delay.

Hi Soni,

Thanks a million tonne for relieving me from the worries about the PF. But one more favor if you can let me know how to withdraw this PF amount as my ex-employer says that i cant withdraw the PF if i am not completing 6 months of the tenure. They says i can only transfer it and i dont want to transfer it.

=============

Hi Raj,

Yes it is possible to withdraw PF from a company where you resigned before six months and can submit the form for that but you will only get the PF amount submitted and not the pension amount.

Around 5 or 6 years back, I worked in one company for 5 months and withdrew my PF and there were no issues but I got just a small amount of money.

Why don't you opt for a transfer of your PF amount as the money if you have in your account would be really less and it is better to accumulate more and get interest on all the amount and then withdraw.

No dear not at all, there is no requirement of a blank check plus do not give it to anyone. How it can be possible? Please check with the PF commissioner or PF department in your immediately regarding this demand by your previous company. I am sure that there is no requirement of a blank check.

Yes you will getting the interest and you can withdraw your PF when you come to India but I do not know for how many years, your money will be entitled for interest. Please check with the PF department.

I did not receive any pay slips in both the cases and as such i dont know my PF a/c no for both. I have the appointment letters of both the company's in which the salary breakuo mentioning the PF contribition is mentioned. Kindly Advice

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Deepak, you need to contact your company, HBL Global & Solutions Integrated Marketing Services, for getting your PF number as there is no other system to tell you your PF number like that. If you have written record of your PF deductions as mentioned in your payslips, your previous company has no right to deny you of your PF account number. Contact your company ASAP. Get the PF number, get your PF form filled and attested by your previous employer and submit the form at your regional PF office for PF withdrawal.

Jignesh 6 years ago

Hi,

I had worked with my Ex-employer for 3.5 years. I had left the Org in Jan 2009 and I had applied for PF withdrawal in the month of Oct09. Recently What I did was I went to the EPFO Vashi Branch to check my status, I got the detail that the claim has been accepted and the cheque details were provided to me. My query was that the amount I am receiving seems to be only my contribution, No share of employers contribution. As per my knowledge the employee contribution and employers contribution are same so in that case I shd be getting the double of the amount. Pls suggest your view.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Jignesh, Kindly contact your previous company's HR Department for clarifications regarding your PF amount because I think this cannot happen. No PF can be submitted like this. Both parts should be submitted or either there is some problem with your calculation or estimation I would say or there is some error in PF department's calculation. One thing also I would like to ask you that have you got details for two cheques or or only one cheque because there will always be two separate cheques or ECS coming your way and not one because there are two separate forms to fill up in your single PF withdrawal form, i.e., pf withdrawal form 19 and 10c. Type this in google and you will get to know.


Jignesh 6 years ago

Thanks Soni for your reply. I had filled in both the forms, however I was provided only detail of 1 cheque when inquired at Vashi Branch. I was also told that the file has been transferred at Bandra office. How it is possible that my company operates in vashi and my file could goto Bandra. What further action should I take in this regard. And would that cheque would directly get deposited in my bank or I personally need to collect that from the PF Office.

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

There is no problem in filing your PF for withdrawal Saurabh. Actually, the same happened to me around 4 years back. At that time, I left a company and was not able to file a claim for around 2 years. There was no problem when I filed it after 2 years. Rather I received much more money than I thought I would get because I also got my amount plus the interest for 2 years at 8% increasing my PF amount as a whole. So go ahead with the procedure of filing the claim. Best of luck dude.

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Dear Vik,

You cannot withdraw your entire PF amount from your account without leaving the organization and this is for sure but yes you can withdraw some part of your PF amount submitted till date depending upon your length of services that are prescribed by PF Authorities.

Detailed information regarding withdrawal of some percent of your PF is available in the PF site itself. I have attached herewith a link for your reference:

EPFO Site: http://www.epfindia.com/members_benefit.htm

This link talks about all the PF member benefits. I hope that the above link will definitely meet your requirements.

Best of luck.

Hello,

Read through the whole list of questions, however 1 small query, according to the PF site,if service is less than 5 yrs, then form 16 for all those years have to be furnished along with form 19 for withdrawal of PF. Should this be provided by the company HR to the PF office or should we provide a photocopied versions of form 16 to our employers ourselves?

2. Provident fund and Pension fund - I understand that I can transfer/withdraw Provident fund. What happens to pension fund? Do I need to transfer/withdraw that too? Suppose I transfer my Provident fund to Pune, will my pension fund also transfer? Sorry to ask but I am new to all of this.

Thanks

Naren 6 years ago

Hi Deepak, I saw a lot of useful information on your page, and have a few questions, though some of it may be repetitive.

1. I worked for a company in Bangalore and then moved to Hyderabad. I've submitted a form for transfer, but I don't think the transfer is complete. In this case, will my new company continue to deposit my contribution into the old account (my salary slip lists my old account number). The new company has an office in B'lore too, so they may be using the same regional office.

2. What happens if I leave my new company before the transfer is complete? If I want to withdraw my PF amount, will I need to submit two withdrawal forms, one for the old company and one for the new?

3. I heard that I have to pay tax on withdrawing PF if I withdraw within five years of employment, however you have said that this is not correct. I just wanted to make sure, I worked for 3 years and 9 months in the old company and 8 months in the new company. Will there be any tax on withdrawal?

4. How long can I keep my PF account in freeze, if I decided to work abroad or study? Can I withdraw anytime later, or re-use the same account if I take up a job in India again after a few years?

Thank you very much for your help.

Do not worry too much Murali. Go ahead and check the date when the PF site was updated for new information. I am pretty sure that your claim must have been submitted and it is not showing up in the site because the PF staff has not updated the site with more info. Wait for 5 or 10 more days and then also if nothing happens, visit your Chennai PF branch and show them your PF no. and the acknowledgement slip you have. They will then tell you what is the exact status of your claim. Best of luck. It happened with me also so no need to worry a lot.

If they ask also then also what is the problem, as you have already left the organization and if they are not helping you in withdrawal, then you have to take this step to get your money out from your PF account. Your previous employer cannot deny any information asked by the PF organization.

I had resigned from my company in the month of June 2009 and the PF form was send by my HR to the PF office at Thane on 5th October 2009.

My PF details is : MH/THA/43037/014203.

I have checked the updated site "04/01/2010" and it is showing claim "Your claim not received".

Please let me know how to find the status of my claim as I have been trying the PF telephone number of Thane office but they are not picking up the phone. Since I am working currently in Chennai I am unable to check personally the office at Thane.

Dear Mr. Krishnendu Ghosh,

In your case, I am really sorry to say that you have to personally visit the PF office located in Thane and you to travel from Chennai to Mumbai for that because according to your details you submitted your PF form on 5th of october and today is 22nd of january so it has been already three months almost 90 days since your company submitted your PF form for withdrawal. In these types of cases, a person has to visit it personally and there are no other ways that can help in this situation.

Hi Soni,

I had gone through the whole posts and your answers as well.

It is really amazing seeing your vast knowledge about PF. Hats off to you my friend.

I resigned my previous employer on Aug2005 and yet to claim my PF. With your posts I came to know that I can claim my PF now also. But my question here is, will there be any tax deduction on my PF amount which I will be claiming?

Thanks in advance.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Thanks a lot for that praise and appreciation Mr. SaravananSeshan. I just wanted to help fellow friends who are having from PF problems and that is why I keep on answering their questions. As you know, for withdrawing old PF like yours since Aug 2005 or new ones that are 2 months old, you need to contact your previous employer and get the signature and authorized stamps on Form 19 and Form 10C and submit your PF form to your designated PF office. It will take at least 30 days from the date of submission of forms to get your money deposited in your bank account. Many times, it gets delayed also because of bulk PF forms to be processed by the PF authorities. Secondly regarding tax, I do not think that your PF amount will be eligible for any tax, then also you can check with your company's HR or a PF consultant or a PF officer when you visit your PF officer to submit your form. Best of luck for your PF withdrawal my friend.

Atul Mittal 6 years ago

Hi..

I have worked till July 2009 in company A and then joined company B.. I got my whole EPF (nearly 1.1 Lac) transferred to company B.

In April to JUly 2009 total EPF contribution by me was nearly 5000.

Now for the purpose of tax calculation , accounts person of my current employer says that the previous 5000 contribution to old EPF won't be considered under 80C as whole PF has been transferred to current employer, and they will consider whole PF transfer amount of 1.1Lac under 80C.

This sounds a bit irrational to me as i have only contributed 5000 in current financial year to previous Employers EPF and just got it transferred to current EPF..

Please tell me whether he is right or i am right?

Sorry Manisha, I cannot help in this situation. You must at least your husband's PF no. in order to claim for PF withdrawal. Actually, your husband must have obtained the PF number as soon as he got to know about the PF deduction from his salary ion September 2002. Always 6 to 7 years have passed and only your husband's old company can be of help. Try something to get the PF number from them.

I was working in company A for 8 mths, and absconded from the same. Then I joined company B where I am still employed. However, company B made a new PF a/c for me, and I completely forgot about my old PF a/c with company A. You have mentioned earlier that having 2 PF a/cs is illegal. What should I do now? Company A will not sign and submit the withdrawal forms on my behalf as I had absconded from the company. What will happen if I continue having 2 PF a/cs?

Thanx and regards,

this is in contitinuation of my previous mail an our before.Actually my previous employer had refused to accept my resignation and they wanted from me to serve full 3 months notice period which i din't.So now they refused to cooperate.So pls help/guide me to withdraw my PF.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi Rajeev,

For PF withdrawal without signs of employer, you can get your signature attested by a bank manager or a public notary and can submit the application to your PF Office.

or visit this link: http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/19466-how-withdraw-p

hi sony,my pf account no is KN/BN/19214/054915. I am not able to track the status online. my prev company had submitted the form in pf office on 08/02/2010. Please help me.

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Don't worry Asha, as according to you it has been only 27 days since your company submitted your PF application. Though the PF organization claims that it only takes 30 days to get your PF money but sometimes it takes more than 30 days, sometimes 45 days to receive the money in your account. Also go ahead and check their website in the KNOW YOUR CLAIMS STATUS that when they updated this information, right now over here in Delhi it is showing "Data is not available for the given input." They do not update the information on a daily basis or weekly basis. I think they update it on 20 days basis so better check it when it shows the nearest date and is updated recently.

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

You need to check with your Tamil Nadu PF office urgently as your PF claim is already 70 days late. People usually receive their PF money between 30 and 45 day, beyond this day limit, you need to contact your branch office immediately. Go ahead and give them your PF no. and they will tell you the exact status.

Hi Soni,

I have read somewhere that female employees leaving job to get married do not have to wait for 2 months in order to withdraw from the PF account. Is this true? If yes, do we need to submit any proof of marriage or something?

Thanks.

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Yes Sumi, I think you are right. Here is one clause of EPFO organization I found "Application for final settlement can be sent by a member on completion of 2 months from the date of leaving service, if the reason for leaving service is other than superannuation, medical ground, retrenchment and V.R.S./ Female members getting married etc."

Sumi 6 years ago

Hi Soni,

I want to transfer my old PF into my current one. However, after I left the previous company, it was acquired and hence changed its name. So in the form, do i mention the old name or the new name of the previous company?

Thanx


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

@Pankaj, just go ahead and meet the HR Department of ITM, Gurgaon. They will definitely help you in filling out the form and getting it attested by the designated authorities there? If they do not cooperate, fill up the form on your own and get it attested by officers listed above in this article. Also check in comments. I have listed them three times I think. After doing this submit form in PF office.

@Sumi, though everything should be done by your new employer's HR department, then also for your information, you can check regarding this directly with the PF Office. Visit your branch office and contact the designated persons.

Whatever amount your company is deducting from your salary and submitting to PF, the same amount your company is adding and submitting to PF. Plus you get some interest on the PF amount of 8% I think.

Sachiien Sathawane 6 years ago

Hello Soni,

My P.F.No. is MH/PUN/120725/437.

I have given my appliation to my previous employer 2 months after i left the company.

The previous employer is saying that PF dept accepts the application only during first week of every month. And it might take 4-6 months to credit the amount.

That means I need to wait for the whole month to just get my application submitted to PF dept.

Is theere any such rule of PF dept of accepting the application during first week of every month only?

Can I personally go to PF dept and submit the application along with the previous empoyer's attestations/documents etc or is it manadatory to go through the pervious employer?

Please guide on the same.

Thank you very much in advance.

I have never heard about this before Mr. Sathawane, as your employer is making a fool of you.

Why don't you visit the epf site that I have listed several times in the article and confirm on your own, Your employer is misguiding you,

I have joined 3i Infotech Ltd in Apr 2005 and have resigned in Nov 2008. And then I have joined Aurionpro Solutions Ltd in Mar 2009 and have left it in Mar 2010. I have note transferred/withdwarn PF amount from 3i Infotech. Now if I withdraw it will I have to pay 30% tax on it. As technically speaking the account was opened 5 yrs back out of which for 1.5 yrs it been inactive.

As the HR from 3i Infotech have mentioned that "There will be Tax deduction of 30.90% on the Gross amount if your membership with PF is less than 5 years".

Suresh, what is your employee no. actually. I searched for CMS Computers Pvt. Ltd. in the establishment search and found

20019 as your establishment code but it cannot be found in your pf account no. It is very confusing. Also the EPF site's page "VIEW THE STATUS OF YOUR CLAIM" was last updated on April 5th 2010 so it is highly possible that your claim if has been processed is not showing up on the site. I advice you to check with your PF office directly as they have access to all current PF records and will guide you in the best possible way.

Best of luck Suresh.


Hitesh 6 years ago

Hi Soni,

What I want to ask is that, now if I withdraw the fund 3i Infotech will I be taxed @30.90% as mentoned by the HR. As I have served for 3.5 yrs and later on for 1.5 yr I have not withdrawn it.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Why not you confirm all the details in the EPF website. Here is the useful link for frequently asked questions: http://www.epfindia.com/faq.htm

According to me, there is no system like you will be taxed @30.90%. Then also go through the epf site and check on your own. Might be possible that they would have added some new rules and regulations.

HELP Required regarding PF withdrawal

Hi Soni,

I worked in a company in b'lore for around 4.5 years & currently I'm working in Pune since past 3.5 years..currently I'm having two pf accounts

Can you please guide me what options do I have?

A) Transfer ?

can I get this previous amount transferred to my newer one after gap of 3.5 years and that two it involves two different states ( That may bring pain in terms of long waiting/transfer period )

B) Withdrawal?

If I can't get it transferred or want to withdraw, I have few doubts :

1) As If you withdraw from PF a/c before 5 years it is taxable.

- but five years from when?

I worked in first company for 4.5 years & it has been 3.5 years since I switched my job. Then am I subjected to this tax deduction?

C) Let it be the way it is?

Do I have the option of keeping this previous pf a/c as well?

I mean, I'm getting nice returns here (by nice i mean safe ) .

and down the line I may think after 10-15 years to get this amount. Is it possible or what could be the consequences?

Looking forward for your Help.

Thanks,

Gunjan

My question is can I withdraw my PF even when I have joined a company that has PF accounts, or is this illegal

Because on http://www.scribd.com/doc/6585961/Pf-Withdrawal it is mentioned as follows

Please read the instructions carefully (particularly the reason of leaving). Please do not mention the following mentioned reasons.

- joined other company

- better opportunities

- better prospects

- career opportunities

- retrenched from service

- Discharged from service on receiving compensation under the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947’

- Resigned not employed in any factory to which the EmployeesProvident funds scheme applies etc.

In that case what do I mention as my reason for leaving.


Sparsh 6 years ago

Hi Soni,

Pls reply soon.

I have left the org. this 19th and our HR dept. had given me the EPF form asking me to submit it to them after filing it. Our head office is in Delhi and I was in the Goa branch. I just want to know if I should sign on the ADVANCE STAMPED RECEIPT part of the 10c and 19 form without receiving any amount or knowing what amount they will write there though my payment statement always mentioned the amount that gets deducted towards EPF?

Also, what is this "scheme certificate in lieu of withdrawal benefits" mentioned on the form? I am just interested in getting the money in my bank account.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

See Sparsh, most companies do this work on their own. They just ask you to fill up the form you need to fill in with your personal details like name, father's name, bank account and no. etc., but the part they need to fill like what amount they deducted and what amount they are including in your PF is their own responsibility so better fill up the form with your own details and left the work of your company's HR in their hands. I mean give the form to them so that they can fill in their details and also stamp and attest the form to be submitted to your respective PF branch. Hope this helps.


Sparsh 6 years ago

Hi Soni,

Thanks a lot for your quick response. But I still did not get whether I should sign on the form in the Advance Stamped Receipt area and submit the form or should it be signed after receiving the amount. By "attest the form" do you mean I should sign and submit?

You did not answer what is scheme certificate in lieu of withdrawal benefits.

So in all I have 4 PF accounts.But during this period I was not unemployed so couldn't withraw the PF. When I will be able to apply for PF claim.Is there any upper limit that after so many years of inactive PF acount I will not be able to claim the PF?

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

@Krish, I am sorry bro. You need to contact your previous company or you must have at least some proof of your PF deduction like a valid salary slip, etc.

@Abdulla, do not worry too much about this. You can withdraw your PF account with reason better prospects or better opportunities. It is not like that companies are deducting and submitting PF because some companies with less employees do not come under PF act. I am not pretty sure about this but it is true as to my knowledge. Plus one more thing. Is there any field in the PF form where it is written that you have write the name of the company you are currently working with? Most people withdarw PF when they leave the service and do not want to transfer their funds. The problem comes when you are having multiple PF accounts running in your name. It is better to transfer to new company or withdraw the previous PF from prior company and get a fresh one with the new company.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

@Santosh, you can search the establishment code for your company via this link http://www.epfindia.com/indiaepf/NameSearch.aspx

use the first two to three letters of your company. Regarding your PF account, you need to take your establishment code and salary slip to the PF office. I think they will help.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

@sachdeva, I am not pretty sure about a female employee getting pension amount after marriage and not doing job because logically also this is not a disability to do the job or some accident. This is a voluntary thing done by a female. You need to check with PF office. Frankly speaking, I am not really sure.

@Pradeep, don't wait start withdrawing PF amount from each and every of your account. It is not illegal because your PF account is in different regions and cannot transferred. There will no issue in this unless and until you have your PF number. Take an easy route go to your previous companies one by one and get your form filled attested and they submit to PF department. Most companies submit PF form to the PF departments as this is their responsibility. If not, then also you can submit it on your own. Plus one more thing, you are eligible to withdraw your PF money as soon as your two months complete after your resignation. Okay buddy.

Thanks Sony,

But I could not find my company's Estab. Code. Searching by name(Delphi Automotive Systems Pvt Ltd) in any way. How is this possible? .They are issuing annual PF report but there too only amount is mentiond and not the PF Number.I am sure they are submitting PF by some means can they do it indirectly in the name of some trust?

Dear Soni,

I left my organization around 2 yrs back. I reside in Delhi and worked in Gurgaon. My query is

1. Which Forms do I need to send across to my Employer for attestation, Form 10c and Form 19 both or one of them as they both look similar

2. Where do I need to deposit the FORM after verification from Employer, Delhi or Gurgaon. Any specific office or the only one where my company deposited my PF

3. How can I know my PF amount, I know it is difficult

thanks

Ritesh

@Samuel, brother I have mentioned this several times in the article itself or in the comments. You can withdraw PF if your employer is not cooperating or you do not want to go to them. Just fill up the form with your PF no. and other details and get them attested by a bank manager or by many other officials I have listed above.

@Pradeep, it's my pleasure buddy.

@Suresh, you just need to visit your PF office with the PF no. you have in your possession and check with them.

@Pawankumar1, your PF just got released on 26 April. You need to wait for at least 30 days and at max 45 days for the money to come in your account. Do not worry about this right now. At least wait for 30 days.

@Santosh, why don't you contact your employers regarding this. They will surely help you out and do the needful.

@Ritesh, if you have worked in Gurgaon you need to submit your form in the Gurgaon PF office. Here is the address and email id for Gurgaon EPF office:

Bhavishya Nidhi Bhawan, Plot No.43,Sector 44,

Institutional Area, Gurgaon 122002.

E-mail: : sro.gurgaon@epfindia.gov.in

If your company is located in gurgaon, they have to submit PF in Gurgaon. Also, your employers are the right people to contact in this case. All employers I have worked with up until now submitted my PF form on their own. You don't need to do this but if they are refusing you can do this on your own at the above mentioned address plus yes your employer will attest your PF form.


Sparsh 6 years ago

Hi Soni,

As informed earlier I have left my job and still did not take up any new job. Please let me know after how many days of leaving the job should one submit the EPF form to the concerned office to do the formalities and forward the form to the PF office. I read somewhere that if you do not join any new company you have to submit the form after two months of leaving the company. Is it true?


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Yes it is very true Sparsh. You need to wait for two months from the date of your resignation from the company to submit your PF form for withdrawal of money to your bank account.

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

@Samuel, it's my pleasure dear. I will keep on doing this great job of helping friends with PF issues.

@Suresh, I am really sorry friend. Frankly speaking, I can only help out on problems which I can solve personally. I do not have any expertise in your case. You need to consult a PF officer in your area if you are not able to visit your PF office in Mumbai. You can also visit a PF consultant in Chennai who can help you with this issue. I can only guide, except everything regarding this issue is in your hands and what action you take to solve this problem.

Nupur  6 years ago

Hi soni ,

I’m an ex-employee of SAP Labs. I left SAP Labs on May 2007 and applied for PF transfer. The transfer has not happened so in 2010 jan i asked them whether i can withdraw the money . They said you can do it. i filled all the documents needed and they sent it to regional provident fund office on March 17th 2010. Today i checked the status online it says "Your Claim Not Received by this Office!". It's now more then 45 days when i submitted my document. What does this status mean. What can i do futher to get my money and since i am losing time to get my money back will i be getting the interest on it as well.

regards,

nupur


Nupur 6 years ago

hi soni,

pls do let me know what exactly this status mean "Your Claim Not Received by this Office!".I checked with my company again whether the form is returned back to them they said no.

regards,

nupur


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Nupur, you need to visit the regional provident fund office where you submitted your PF withdrawal form on March 17th 2010 and confirm the status. As the PF site is not updated constantly so it is possible that your current account status is not reflecting on the site but this status is available with the PF office, just take your PF form acknowledgment with you or write your PF account on a piece of paper and ask the PF employee over there to confirm your status. I think that your PF money must be in the process of coming to your account. Regarding interest on your PF amount, that ceases on the same date the PF office starts the processing your PF account for withdrawal. Best of luck.


nupur  6 years ago

Hi

interest will cease on 17th march 2010 if i m not wrong ...or the date on which i left the company?

Please apply Form-13, for transfer of your PF account to the present company, if covered under PF”. i want to resubmit the documents what reason can i metion on it to withdraw my money. Can i write " I am going for higher studies". do they maintain databse for those froms whom they reject?

Tiku 6 years ago

Hi Soni,

Is it possible to submit the Form 19 on the EPFO website? Or we have to do it manually at the PF office? My account belongs to the Kolkata region - do I have to submit only in the Kolkata office or I can submit in any other office also?

Thanks for all the info you have provided.


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

@Nupur, you might have mentioned on your PF withdrawal form about joining a new company or something and that is why you have been rejected. If you have really joined a new organization, go ahead and get the PF transfer done or resubmit new form for PF withdrawal.

@Tiku, No it is not possible to submit the Form 19 on the EPFO website and yes the only way is to do it manually at the PF office. If your account belongs to the Kolkata region , yes you need to submit your form only in the Kolkata office and no other office.

Thanks for the appreciation and best of luck for your PF withdrawal.


Tiku 6 years ago

Thanks once again. As I do not live in Kolkata, is it possible to send the form 19 by post to the Kolkata office? Will they accept it?

Thanks

Tiku


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hello Tiku, frankly speaking, I don't know that whether PF office will accept the form by post and I am unsure about this facility. It is better to submit the form on your own or by some of your friend or relative in Kolkata because then you will have your acknowledgement slip in your hands.


AMD 6 years ago

It is been 3 months now that I have left the organization & they have asked me to fill for 19 & 10c for withdrawal. While reading these forms, I understand that you can withdraw your PF only if -

1. Medically unfit to work

2. Leaving the country

3. Crossed the age of 58

4. Have not been employed for more than 2 months

Since I do not fall in any of these categories, does this imply that I can only transfer my PF amount to the next organization? If I still proceed with withdrawal, I assume this is legally incorrect, right?

Thanks

@AMD, yes this is legally incorrect. You need to transfer your PF to new organization.

@Krish, you need to visit the PF office with your PF form acknoledgement slip plus photocopy of forms submitted 18 months ago. Query cannot be solved at phone.

@Amit, I have listed the details regarding submitting PF form without sign of employer many times in this article plus in the comments. You need to read them and use the tips. You can get your form attested by a bank manager also and submit it. Yes you can get your PF money without your employer's consent. Best of luck.

@Varsha, thanks for your motivation and regards.

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Abhishek, don't wait to call, just go ahead and personally visit the PF office where your prior organization submitted the form. You are just late now. Your money should have reached you by this time. I am not aware of phone no.s. Never tried because it's a government machinery and you know how they respond. What do you say?

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

If your PF has been submitted in Wazirpur branch, you need to submit it there only. I don't think so that you have any option of submitting it in South Delhi. By the way, you can contact me at rajsoni4u@gmail.com Geeti. I live near Punjabi Bagh and Wazirpur is near so can do some help.


Geeti 6 years ago

Thanks for the reply. I just need to know Wazir Pur is very far and I live in South Delhi. So, Are there any option to submit it near to my place as Wazirpur is very far, so do they provide any kind of drop boxes to drop the PF form. Or Is it Mandatory to submit it in main Wazirpur branch only. Please reply.

Reading through everyone's comments, I dont think this is un-usual but anyways here my part of the story.My claim was processed and settled on 17/03/2010. As per PF office they have sent the cheque to my banker in Noida. I have checked with my bank and they have told me that till date they have not received any cheque. I have tried to make contact with EPFO bandra office and now they have stopped replying to my emails. I have also tried to reach out to CPFC(Mr. Chatterjee) & RPFC Mumbai (Mr Mathew) but no response till date. Logged a greviance through their new portal and no reply till date. Do you think you can provide me some guidance how to move forward with this. It is kinda frustrating now...

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

@sorab, you need to physically visit the PF office to check status of withdrawal, PF balance, and everything. Not available online.

@Rohit, you need to go to Bombaby only in which PF office your PF is submitted.

@krish147, who told you about canceled checks. You don't need to send any canceled checks. This is not an ECS but it is only one time deposit in your account. Just submit the form and that's fine.

@Suresh, wait for at least 30 to 40 days.

@Gaurav Rajpal, your situation is distressing. You need to visit your PF branch office directly and explain the details to the concerned officer.

@Old Man, you need to talk with the HR department of your organization. They will definitely help.

@Praveen, already discussed this many times in the comments. Visit EPFO website FAQ section for more details.

You need to consult the HR personnel of your previous organization regarding your PF withdrawal or alternatively if you have got your correct PF account no. then you can purchase a PF form and submit without the consent of your Previous Employer. I have mentioned all the details regarding the PF withdrawal process and answered lots of common questions in this article and comments. You just need to go through them and start the process.

First of all, you need to:

1. Submit your PF forms in the PF offices where your three companies deposited your and their money respectively.

2. You need to visit the PF offices or send someone to submit the form as if you will send it through registered post, you will not have any acknowledgement.

3. If you want your money, you need to do the things on your own.

4. I have mentioned all details regarding getting PF withdrawal without employer's signature in this article. Please read it carefully.

All your questions have been answered many times in the comments of this article. You need to read it carefully. That's it.

Hi Sony,

First up all thanks for this informative post.

In one of your previous post you mention that employee can give his old PF account no to new employer however what i noticed from my (and my friends) experience that most organizations enforce new PF account to employee and ask to transfer amount from old a/c to new a/c, which is quite lengthy process. Is it mandatory ? can i ask my employer firmly to choose for first option?

But I left the 3rd one without serving the notice period and hence they are not willing to sign the PF withdrwal form. I don't even know if the PF from other 2 got tranfered in the 3rd company. What should I do to know if the amount got transferred and to withdraw it from 3rd.

Thanks in Advance.


Ankit Aggarwal 6 years ago

hi soni

I left my old organization on 16-nov-2009 and after 60 days I asked my old organization to sign my PF withdrawal documents but the accountant there who was the authorized signatory also was having few grudges against me so refused to sign my documents. Then I thought of getting it signed from the notary and finally got it signed from the notary but when I sent my documents to the EPFO Noida, what these people did is, they send my documents back to my previous organization and it got into the hands of the same accountant only. Then he did nothing and kept those documents with him. Since 23-mar-10 those documents are lying as it is with the accountant and no one is able to help me. I have even made a complaint to the Ministry of Labour, but they also slept and did nothing

You're requested to please help me in getting my PF money asap

Don't worry about the third one as it looks as though they would have not transferred your money to their account. Most companies tell their employees to open a new account.

@Ankit, you didn't need to do it with notary buddy. You need to follow the steps mentioned in this article, especially check out how to withdraw your PF without your employer's signature.

@Venkat, you need to contact the PF department regarding this. EPFO India has set up dedicated customer care executives to help in these cases. Best of luck.

I have one query.....Is it possible companies deduct the PF amount after resignation..??.........


Jatin 6 years ago

Hi Soni,

Kuddos for the great job you are doing....

Well i have given up hope of getting back the amount deposited in my PF, but all the queries mentioned above have given me some hope...

Although my answers are almost mentioned above- kindly clarify one thing..

In my case, i left my company in Bombay and relocated to Assam. So in my case where do i need to send my filled in forms (PF No- KN/WF/45572/919). In my case i didn't have a proper exit from the company ( worked for 11 months).

1) where do i need to send the filled in form [Mumbai office (where i worked) or Bangalore (Head Office of my previous company)]

2) Can it be resolved in the local level so that my previous company isn't at all involved.

3) If the same needs to be submitted in Mumbai, can my friend in Mumbai process the same on my behalf ( me signing all the documents)

4) Does the sales HR in Mumbai office authorized to sign the form or it needs someone from Finance.

Although you have answered to this questions and i have gone through it- this doubt still lingers in my mind.

So kindly clarify the same- and guide me so that i am resolve the same.

Thanxx in advance

I want know which state Stand for a short name called PN in india.(as mentioned in PF No). i left company 2 years back and the day one i requesting them to clear my A/C(Submitting all the paper like ECS and form 19 and 10c)till the date they fail to updating me the process. yes i'm not in the stage to go back and ask them because i do stay out of country. Of course if my PF been accounted with bangalore branch i would withdrawn this without a company interaction long before. but now as you mentioned in your article submitting a gazetted officer letter how it could be ,,like any format or in 10c form we need attest seal and sign of the Officer, or we need to write a separate letter with seal and sig , along submitting 19 and 10c form how it is??? Even we have a ECS bank attested copy that even can consider as an official letter, I hope so if I’m not wrong. Or we can do affidavit on so en so mater how it could be?? Because in my case im from Bangalore present working in Singapore and my previous company PF a/c is there in some other city. let me know how do I do this transaction in online?? need your support on priority (my first PF withdrawn done without a company interaction in late 2002. with out giving any bribe or any letter.

Can you please clarify some doubts that I have in withdrawing PF.

1. Is it like we can with draw only when we move from one company to other company. I mean when I am in the same company and when I want to take PF, can I get that ?

2. Is there any time limit saying, one should complete x no. of years before be take PF for the first time ?

3. Whether the Govt will take some amount in % from the PF whenever we take the PF?

Please clarify the above.

Sameer Agarwal 6 years ago

I've been trying to transfer my PF for 5 years now. Have submitted the application several times, but it has never really happened. My current and previous employers just seem to pass the buck. Is the current employer supposed to send the filled up form to the previous employer; who will then send to RPFC? Or, is the current employer supposed to directly send the transfer form to RPFC?

Thanks for your help in advance!

I resigned from the services of a Company almost two and a half months back. Although my resignation has been accepted, yet they are silent on my PF claim which I feel I rightly deserve. Since it has been more than 60 days, is it possible for me to put up a claim with the Department directly by filling up the requisite forms as I least expect my ex-employer to take any steps in this regard. I fervently request you to advise me ASAP.

Sincere regards,

Hi Soni,

I have left my previous company 6 months back after working for nearly 3 years. I have opted for PF Withdrawl. I got my PF today and the amount is less than what i have calculated. My previous compnay payroll site shows me that my PF account have 48k excluding intrest by the time i left the company. i got just 35k only from PF department.What happened to the remaining amount ?

Is it the tax on PF amount ?

Is it the EPF component only ? (excluding pension)

If 2nd point is true then when wil i get / claim the pension amount ?

Need your help. This is regarding my PF form that was deposited couple of months back for withdrawal. The PF representative states that the form will only be submitted once he receives sufficient withdrawal forms and till then the person has to wait which to the best of my knowledge is highly unreasonable and annoying.

To whom should I complain about this?

Or If they are too occupied with their stuff, Can i hand over the complete signed and sealed form and I myself would get the same deposited.


PDhar 5 years ago

Hi,

I was working with a private institute for last 8yrs. I took 3weeks leave and came to North America on 20 Sept. 2010 without resigning from the job to pursue my higher studies. Applying through proper procedures for more than a year, the authority didn’t approve my study leave/ sabbatical leave and accepting my resignation. On the other hand, they were not giving me 6th pay etc. and reduce the monthly PF contribution from Rs. 4000 to 750 without informing the staff members. However, from the Oct month itself, the authority, stopped my salary. As I have to be here at least for few years as per my contracts, I wouldn’t be able to move to India. I have downloaded the form 10C and 19. But I don’t find any solution from where I should do the attestation. My query is how to do attestation here to get the PF money to my savings bank account.

Sanjay  5 years ago

I had to transfer my PF from Mumbai to my new office in Bangalore. I had submitted my duly completed form 13 in Mumbai. Later Mumbai PF office as a routine procedure sent it for details verification to Bangalore. The verification reply to come from Bangalore took 11 months totally.

Now the PF office in Mumbai are informing that the 3A form submitted by my previous office in Mumbai is not correct.

I had resigned in August 2008 and my previous company has contributed upto Feb 2009 as per the 3A form. For this reason the PF office is not ready to transfer the amount to Bangalore.

PF office Mumbai has sent a letter to my previous employer about the same and has requested to send them a fresh 3A form. I have doubts that my previous employer might not send a fresh 3A form.

Please advise how I should proceed. I personally do not want to approach my previous employer.

Thanks and Regards,

My previous employer has confirmed that my pf withdrawal form has been submitted on 12 Nov 2010. The EPF website says that 'claim not received' and data is updated on 25th Nov 2010. Today is 23rd Jan 2011. It is frustrating that the data has not been updated for the past 2 months.

Hopefully, I will receive it by March since it is the financial year end.

abhishek 5 years ago

No it is not required. They ask for cheque, giving cancelled cheque is no harm. They take it because it has MICR and ifsc code written on it so at the time of remitting, they need these info. If you provide ur acc no, bank name ifsc code etc then no need to give cheque. and if u give it, no need to sign

Hi guys,

My naem is arvind singh. If you want to withdraw your pf amount so i think it will take a lot of time. I left my last company in july-2010, then i subimt my pf application 12-nov-2010 with all the vaild details. it's runing may 2011 and still i am waiting for my pf amount. it's almoust around 6 months. they guys are very slow. they don't want to do work on time. i mate with the consorn person in last to last month, she asked me to submit a application and they will reply shortly. but didn't get any reply form them. So plese don't think you will get your pf in a month or so.

Good morning to all of you.

You just need to search and find their answers.

Yes Krish and others, I agree still we don't have any online facility to check our PF amount. This is the condition of our nation where very important decisions are never taken and least important decisions are giving priority.

@R. Manjunatha, you need to contact your office HR department for the same. They will definitely help you process your claim faster.

Hello,

I want to withdraw my EPF however my last company (i worked there till 2006) is closed.

I heard that in this case, i can sign teh form from a gazeted officer and submit teh same to epf office where my account is there. Can you pelase confirm this.

Also where in the form I should get it signed from the Gazeted officer. Also do he have to just signj and put his official seal or have to write dometjing there (like company is closed and hence he is attesting etc etc).

Thanks

Hi Sonie,

It's nice to see your patience in replying for every query.

I had a query about PF withdrawal, I was quit from my job last week & i'm travelling abroad by end of this month for 1 year duration.

Do i have any option to withdraw my PF money in a short time?

Because i came to know through a colleague that if we are going-out from India for a long duration, we can withdraw PF money in a short period of 1 week by providing a valid Visa/Travel Ticket.

Thanks in Advance.

Regadrs,

ihave submitted my pf form on 2 feb 2011,however pf department has taken my form on 26th april 2011,from then my pf is pending.

i called them several times but no response..god knows when they will do the work. As per rules it takes only 30 days to disbursement the pf settlement after recieving,but now it almost 35 days,i am unable to trace any thing. now that i have learnt these rules are only on papers nothing else.

well,all i can do is just wait and watch when they settle. sick and tired of these pf official.

so,friends no use in making any complaintto any offcial..just relax and forget about ur pf...or suffer from a mental harasement.

thnx and regards.


Amruta 5 years ago

Hi Soni,

Thanks for all the info above.

2 years back my hubby was working in Satyam.

He left the company in Jan 09 and applied for PF withdrawal.

But in the application form, in the bank address by mistakenly he had missed some data.

For which the Cheque did go to the bank but got returned.

We are staying in bangalore and the PF office is in Hyderabad.

After so many times of to and fro to HYD they revealed this information.

Till now they were just saying that they have sent the cheque.

Now they are asking for a reauthorization letter.

Does that mean further delay in getting the money back.

Could you please suggest what should we do in this case.

Thanks

Sagar 5 years ago

Hi Soni,

I would first thank you for maintaining this discussion chain for so long and helping out many people.

I do have a question, may be it is repeated, but not sure about the current circumstances.

I have worked for Company - A for about 3 years and my PF Amount was around 90k till Feb-28-2011.

I left company-A and joined Company-B on March-2-2011. I have submitted PF withdrawal form and post dated check in my company-A's finance department, stating higher education as the reason for withdraw.

But after bugging Company-A's HR and Finance department, I found that only on June-3-2011 they have forwarded my settlement forms to EPF department. Unluckily, I have got a new PF number in my Company-B.

My questions are:

1. Will EPF department reject my application quoting that I have joined a new company and hold a new account?

2. If I get money what will be the TAX on it? This financial year I belong to 30% tax category, so will it be (90k * 0.7) = 63k ?

Your answers would be of great help.

Thanks,

Sagar.
