EPF New Composite Claim Forms for Full and Partial Withdrawal Aadhar and Non-Aadhar Based

EPF New Composite Claim Forms for Full and Partial Withdrawal Aadhar and Non-Aadhar Based

EPF New Composite Claim Forms for Full and Partial Withdrawal Aadhar and Non-Aadhar Based: EPFO lately launched the EPF Composite Claim Form. This is a particular form for all kinds of withdrawal (including partial or advance withdrawal) with or without the employer’s signature.

Last year, EPFO formed the UAN based EPS and EPF withdrawal forms to simplify the method (New EPF Withdrawal Forms-Withdraw without employer signature). To simplify the process, now the particular single form is introduced as EPF Composite Claim Form.

This will replace the existing Form 31, Forms 19, and Form 10C. Form 19 is used for EPF final agreement, Form 31 is used for EPF partial withdrawal, and Form 10C is used for EPS withdrawal. Are affirmed for PF Final Settlement, EPS Pension.

The EPFO’s New EPF Composite Claim Forms

On Feb 20, 2017, EPFO (Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation) had introduced an Aadhar based and Non-Aadhar established Composite PF Claim Forms, which substitutes existing Forms No. 19, 19 (UAN), 10C, 31, 10C (UAN) and 31 (UAN). This is simply the form for claiming the full and partial withdrawal from the EPF.

It has done away with two separate forms for Full Withdrawl, claiming EPS (Form 10C) and EPF(Form 19). So now individual form can be used, which will withdraw from both EPS and EPF.

There are two variants of the form Aadhar based form and Non-Aadhar based Forms.

  1. Aadhar Based Full Withdrawal Forms: These forms are relevant in cases where an employee’s Bank Accounts and Aadhaar Number details are available on UAN Portal, and UAN has been initiated. So an individual can withdraw by submitting these forms straight to EPFO without the attestation of the Employer. These forms were earlier called as UAN-Based Forms.
  2. Non-Aadhar Based Full Withdrawal Forms: These forms can be practised when Aadhar has not been added with UAN. So one needs to get the attestation of the employer, and then the employer will submit the Full Withdrawal form to EPFO. But even in these forms, a person is required to provide the Aadhaar number.

New Partial Withdrawl Form: Earlier, an individual had to submit Form 31, called EPF Advance Form or EPF Withdrawal, through the Employer for partial withdrawal from EPF after placing in at least five years of service for Treatment, Marriage / Education, Purchase or construction of Dwelling house. Form31 of EPF for partial withdrawal was 3-4 pages long-drawn and required revenue stamp and proof. EPFO made it 1 page and has dismissed the submission of documents. So now it is just like a form for complete withdrawal.
