Employee Provident Fund is a scheme instated by the government, as per the Employee Provident Fund Act of 1952, wherein you and your employer contribute a specific amount each month. Since money is invested on a monthly basis, it helps you build a corpus for your post-retirement life. While your PF account will change every time, you start working at a new organisation, your consolidated EPF account, identified by your Universal Account Number (UAN) will not change. This 12-digit UAN is extremely useful, and is all you need to check your PF details. If you want to know your EPF balance or if you want to check contributions made by your employer, you can do so, through the EPFO e-SEWA portal, mobile app, and SMS by logging in with your UAN.

What is required to withdraw PF online?

In case of emergencies such as hospitalisation, wedding or education of your child, home renovation and repairs, you may need quick access to these funds. Instead of taking a loan, you can withdraw funds from your PF in full or in part. Just remember that to initiate the PF withdrawal process you will have to keep your Universal Account Number (UAN) handy.

In order to withdraw your PF amount using EPFO portal, you will need to ensure the following:

  • UAN must be activated

  • Aadhar number must be linked and verified with UAN

  • The bank account where you want to receive the amount, must be the same as the bank account registered with your Aadhaar.

In case of any changes or modifications, you can complete the eKYC process, and update your details before you submit a claim.

You can easily withdraw your PF online through your UAN by visiting the EPFO e-SEWA portal. Here are the steps you need to follow:

  • 3. Enter bank account details – Once this section opens, you will be required to enter the correct bank account number (seeded with UAN), as a verification process.

  • 4. Confirm Terms & Conditions – Once you’ve verified your details, you would need to confirm the ‘Terms and Conditions’ as stated by EPFO. You can then click on ‘Proceed for Online Claim’

  • 5. Select reason for withdrawal – You’ll find a dropdown menu, from which you would need to choose the reason for withdrawing from your PF account. You will only be shown the options for which you’re eligible.

  • 6. Enter details and upload documents – When you select the reason for withdrawal, you would need to enter your complete address, and you may need to upload your cheque/passbook details if you’ve chosen the option for ‘Advance Claim’. You’ll need to accept further ‘Terms and Conditions’ before requesting a one-time password (OTP) for verification.

  • 7. Get Aadhaar OTP – Once you’ve confirmed your details and accepted the ‘Terms and Conditions’, you would need to request an OTP, which will be sent to the mobile number registered with your Aadhaar. On entering the OTP, your claim application will be submitted.

Once you’ve submitted your claim, you can track the status of your claims by logging into your Member e-SEWA portal account, under ‘Track Claim Status’. The EPFO officials will match your data in their records with the data submitted in your online claim form.
