Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) and Employees Pension Fund (EPS) withdrawal is a real pain for most of the subscribers. But now online fund withdrawal is possible. Online withdrawal of EPF and EPS Fund helps Individual to settle claims without having to wait for the respective Employer to initiate the process. The online settlement of claim is made possible through EPF unified portal which was recently launched by EPFO. Even Claim Transfer while switching jobs is also possible through the Subscriber portal. This has made online withdrawal of EPF and EPS Fund easy and simple.

*The facility for online withdrawal has been launched and it is completely functional. The EPFO has also shortened the timeline for settlement of claims from 20 days to 10 days.

Users have to activate their UAN and after logging into their respective account they may apply for withdrawal. However, some guidelines have been laid out for the online withdrawal. The new system not only saves time, but removes the painstaking task of interacting with the intermediaries such as Employer and Regional EPFO office.

My last working day at office was 08th May 2019. When can I apply for Full Settlement?


Hi sir, I have 2 pf accounts under same UAN. I want to withdraw my previous employers EPF & EPS. Tell me is there a way to withdraw it. Because, in epf website only my current employer is getting listed for withdrawal. Whether I can submit final settlement offline.
Also my previous employer’s pf office is located in bangalore. But I am located in chennai. Do I need to go to bangalore pf office incase to submit form offline if I can withdraw my whole amount. Thanks in advance
