Now file PF withdrawal claims without employers’ attestation

NEW DELHI: Moving a step closer to online settlement of PF withdrawal claims, retirement fund body EPFO today allowed its subscribers to file their applications directly to the body without employers’ attestation.

At present, subscribers submit their claims regarding provident fund withdrawals manually through their present or former employers. The attestation of the forms was mandatory for the purpose.

This facility will be available to all those subscribers whose Universal (or portable PF) Account Number (UAN) is activated and seeded with the KYC details like bank account and Aadhaar number.

“The facility of filing withdrawal claims directly to EPFO will help us eventually launching facility for settling such applications online. We hope that now we would be able to launch the online PF withdrawal facility within this fiscal,” EPFO’s Central Provident Fund Commissioner K K Jalan said. (AGENCIES)
