        Hi Stephen,

        In this case, you can raise a grievance online in order to claim the PF dues along with your employer’s contribution. On the basis of the grievance raised, EPFO will then take action against the employer for non-remittance of dues. As for the Bonus and Gratuity claim, you need to raise the complaint with the Labour Office in Bangalore.

        By now your bank account would have been credited. If not, you can approach the PF office or can raise an online grievance to know the status of the reason for delay or rejection (if any).

        Hi P.S. Ganesan,

        UAN is allotted by EPFO during the year 2014. In the above case, since a UAN has not been allotted for the said tenure of employment you need to approach the employer to claim the PF dues. Or you can directly submit the duly filled and attested claim form to the respective PF office for withdrawing the PF dues.

        Hi Shivani,

        If you have worked for your previous employer whose PF is maintained under their PF trust and you wish to withdraw the contribution from the current employer then you need to apply for an EPS transfer online. If you’re still facing issues, I suggest you contact the PF office with a screenshot of the error message.

        For the error display message that you have mentioned in your comment, you need to contact your employer for KYC approval. Once approved, the system will allow you to apply for the claim online.

        Since you’re saying that the form is submitted, you need to log into the portal with your UAN to check the claim status.

        You need to approach the employer and place a request to submit a joint declaration form in order to correct the right date of leaving the previous employer. In case the issue is with regard to the D O J the current employer, then the same form needs to be submitted to the current employer for D O J correction on the PF portal which will enable you to apply for an online PF transfer.

Once the transfer is processed, and the funds transferred to the current employer’s PF code, you can apply for an online claim.

      My first company (2013-14) had PF. Seconds did not. Third company (2016-17) had PF facility. When I lost my job and I was at home for more than 3 months, I withdrew the amount on the basis on unemployment. Current balance zero (0). Now last company did not had PF registration. My present company promised that their won’t be any PF deductions while joining. Now they are saying, it is mandatory as I had PF A/C. From what I read, if the amount is withdrawn then I’ve to start afresh with PF. Also my salary is above 15,000. So I do not fall under mandatory employee for PF deduction. Can this new company deduct PF?

        If you have withdrawn your complete PF dues from your previous employers and have not been a part of PF membership, then you can opt out of PF — by submitting a declaration in Form 11 — since your PF wage in the current company is above INR 15,000.

        Hi Shiv,

        If your previous company has maintained its PF accumulations with the EPF Organization, then the pension will also get transferred along with PF. Moreover, it will be counted as part of service history but the amount will not reflect in your e-passbook unlike the PF amount as the pension benefit is based on service/tenure and not on the actual contribution.

        Since the transfer is from Company ‘A’ to Company ‘B’, after claiming PF dues from Company ‘B’, you need to submit the physical claim form to get your PF dues and the amount transferred from Company ‘A’, along with a cover letter addressed to the PF Commissioner.

        Hi Pari,

        EPF contribution for both employee and employer is calculated on the basis of your BASIC+DA i.e. 12% of BASIC + DA. This amount (BASIC + DA) is capped at INR 15,000. In other words, if your BASIC + DA exceeds INR 15,000 the maximum EPF contribution will not exceed INR 1,250. However, if your BASIC + DA falls below INR15,000 then the capping doesn’t apply and the contributions are calculated accordingly.

        Of the 12% contributed by the employer, 8.33% of BASIC + DA is diverted towards PF and the remaining 3.67% goes towards EPS.

        Please follow the aforementioned mode of calculation, check your monthly contributions, and report discrepancies (if any) to your employer.

Both my ids have leaving date from the organisations. As trust PF do not have online claim process. So I want to transfer the entire amount to untrust and withdraw the amount.

        Hi Debabrata,

        Firstly, you need to get your PF and Pension accumulations transferred from your previous employer’s PF trust to the current employer PF office. Once the transfer is completed, you can apply for online withdrawal of PF and Pension by logging in to the EPFO portal with your UAN and password.

        Hi Y.S.Reddy,

        You should contact your employer as some companies do show VPF contributions separately. Having said that, the EPF passbook shows VPF and EPF contributions under the same header. To corroborate VPF contributions, I suggest you compare the two amounts — contribution before you opted for VPF and after.

        Hi R RAVISANKAR,

        You will get your pension dues along with arrears. Since the pension process takes more time, I suggest you visit the PF office in person along with the acknowledgement for the submitted pension form.

        Hi Nripendra,

        You can opt for a scheme certificate by filing Form 10C and choosing ‘Yes’ in the column “Are you willing to accept scheme certificate”.

        In order to opt for a scheme certificate and to avail reduced pension (considering that you have attained 50 years of age and served for more than 10 years) you can submit the pension form (Form 10D).

        Hi Pankaj,

        You can apply for a PF advance against your UAN through the EPFO portal. Bear in mind that in most cases you can withdraw upto a certain limit (never 100%).

        That said, you can withdraw 100% of both PF and pension if you’re no longer in service and the date of exit is reported against your UAN.

        Hi Koshyabraham,

        There is no option to continue PF contributions upon retirement. You can claim your pension dues and abstain from withdrawing PF dues as it earns interest year on year.

        Hi Sheersh,

        You need to contact your employer in order to update or correct your father’s name in your PF records. On doing so, the transfer will be brought about to your latest employer’s PF account. You could also log into the EPFO portal with your UAN and password and submit/resubmit your father’s name under Manage > Basic Details.

        You need to submit the PF and Pension claim form manually with necessary enclosures through his employer in order to claim the PF and pension dues. Alternatively, you could also submit the form to PF office by taking necessary employer attestations in the claim forms.

      Is it possible to claim family pension after retirement at 58/59/60 years; without withdrawing EPF Balance? This is because of higher interest rates.

      If yes, what is the process to start getting family pension? How much time the process takes for pension to start? Thanks.

        Hi Anil,

        Upon attaining 58 years of age, you can apply for a monthly pension by submitting Form 10D along with necessary enclosures such as Aadhaar Card, Bank passbook, nominee details etc. The process may take 2 to 3 months.

        Hi Radhakrishanan,

        Last drawn pension wage (capped at INR 15,000) * No. of years of service/70 is the formula for pension calculation.

        You can avail pension benefits upon attaining 58 years of age.

        Also, pensionable salary will be based on the last 60 months’ average pay subject to a cap of INR 15,000 on Basic + DA.

        To get more clarity on this matter I suggest you reach out to your PF office.

        Rishabh Ranjan

        Hi D M Shah,

        You can either withdraw the PF amount or keep the account active without submitting a claim. Earlier, a person could keep his PF account active for 36 months after his date of leaving(service) in order to get interest. Furthermore, post 36 months, the PF account would become inoperative. Now, the aforementioned 36 months rule is omitted. I suggest you keep your PF accumulations active which will earn interest on a year-on-year basis.

        Also, currently there is no option available to transfer PF dues to NPS.

        Hi Praveen,

        You can raise an online grievance here:

        Bear in mind that you have to furnish both employee and employer details such as UAN, Employer PF Code (Number), tenure of employment, e-passbook etc.

        To answer your second question, you can approach your employer in person. In case you do not get a favourable response, you can take it up with the Labour Office by filing a complaint.

        Hi Narasimha,

        PF claim settlement may take a maximum of 20 working days. That said, the time period for settlement varies amongst PF offices. Furthermore, time taken by the PF office also depends on the inflow of claim forms. In my opinion,the claim would have been settled by now. In case it hasn’t been settled, you can either visit the PF office in person with details about your PF claim and UAN or can raise an online grievance on the PF portal.

        Rishabh Ranjan

        Hi Swetapadma,

        You need to list employment details such as Date of Joining(DOJ) and Date of Leaving(DOL) service for each employer. For DOL which is before Dec 2013, you can apply with the manual claim form in case you wish to withdraw the PF and Pension dues. If not, you can apply for a manual transfer of all the funds from all your previous employers to your latest employer’s PF code.

        For employment after Dec 2013, you would have been allotted a UAN. On the basis of the UAN that has been provided, you can submit an online transfer request (since Jan 2014) to the latest employer’s UAN/PF code. But bear in mind that before start submitting the form online, you need to upload your KYC details such as Aadhaar, PAN, Bank account details and Mobile Number for the latest UAN/PF Number.

      Dear Sir, I used to work in reputed software company, resigned in June this year. My PF settlement claim got rejected because the current employer didnt make EPS contributions while previous employer was making the EPS contribution (instead whole 12% employer share was contributed in PF monthly). When I approached the last employer to resolve the issue of EPS contributions with the EPFO, they are not helpful nor are they communicating properly since last 4 months.
      Please suggest me how to resolve this issue or who can help me resolving this issue, thanks a lot!

        Hi Sumit,

        Once you become a member of EPS, your membership with EPS continues. In case of change of employer and increase of PF wages, your current employer needs to submit the revised contributions showing EPS deductions along with PF starting from his Date of Joining (service) in order to process your transfer.

        Interest is calculated for both employer and employee PF contributions, not for the contribution made towards pension. Also, it is calculated on previous accumulations and current year contributions.

        In this case, it seems like the date of exit submitted by you is not matching the contribution remitted to your UAN during the employment period. I suggest that you contact your employer to report your date of exit against your UAN on the PF portal.
