Dear Mr. Malik,
For withdrawal of your PF accumulations, you will have to collect Form 19 from your Personnel Department / nearest EPFO.
You can Form 13 for transfer of your PF from earlier organization to new organization.
To avail withdrawal benefit under Employee Pension Scheme, 1995, you will have to fill in Form 10C and submit the same to your previous organization. There is a waiting period of 2 months after which the said Form 10C shall be forwarded to EPFO by your previous employer. EPFO, after the receipt of said Form 10C will credit the amount accumulated in your pension fund to the SB A/C you have mentioned in Form 10C. This withdrawal benefit is available to you if you have worked for less than 9.5 years in a particular organization.
Please revert in case any further details are required.

Hi Umesh, Are there any chances that your previous organisation would not submit the Forms to PF Office? And are there any remedies for the same? Best Regards Ravi

Hi there,
its been more than 9 months that i filled in the pf form to my previous employer & they said that the amount will be deposited in my bank account within 8 months, I havent yet heard neither frm my prev empl. nor did i recv any notification frm the pf office.
following are the issues/doubts that i am having before hand:
1. my prev org office has been closed & shifted to a place far away frm where i stay.
2. My SB a/c. no. that I had given for the pf amount to be sent to has been closed, so i am not sure if thats a problem. but i think if thats the case i should have recvd some kind of notification frm either of the parties.
Please advise as to what i am supposed to do to get my PF amount withdrawn in this scenario. Any help will be highly appreciated.
thanks in advance,

60 days of time is not required on the following grounds.
1. Retirement on superannuation
2. Marriage of dependent falls immediately after relieving from service
3. Relieving to go abroad
On all other grounds 60 days is required. This is to confirm whether withdrawal is a must or can be transferred to next service.

Why you have to withdraw PF? You can transfer the previous PF by submitting form 13 to previous RPFC Office through your present employer.
If withdrawal is necessary; fill form 19, get endorsed from the previous employer and submit to previous RPFC.

I am working in a limited company say X ltd. previously i used to work with another company say Y ltd.

now pf was being deducted from my salary in Y ltd and i have left the organisation more than a year back so i have doubts about withdrawing my PF:

1) I would like to know how do i fill up the column for Contribution for the Current Financial Year in form 19 for withdrawal of PF. i.e the contribution that was deducted from my salary by my last employer along with his contribution or amount contributed by my current employer.

2)Do i have to get the form 19 attested by somebody or should i just fill it up and send it to my previous employer along with a photocopy of my bank passbook?

3)Any other procedure i should be aware of to withdraw my PF from my previous employer? it has been more than a year since i quit my job.

Also before joining Y Ltd i was working with the same company that i am currently employed in ie. X ltd and back then Pf was being deducted from my salary and i want to withdraw that too ( i do not want to transfer it to my current pf account in X ltd instead i want to enchash it) please guide me on the same.

To withdraw your PF, there should be minimum 60 days gap, so after 2 months you will be eligible to withdraw your PF.
The procedure is very simple you just contact HR regarding PF withdrawal, There are several forms should be fill up. The forms are as follows, Form No. 10-c, 19, 5 & 10.
The forms should be fill up & stamp and sign with Authorized signatory along with your either passbook or cheque book photocopy.

The PF forms can be submitted if all the procedure completed and the amount will be credited in your bank account within min. 15 days.

@Ramjan.Ali As you've mentioned that you have completed your PF procedure in Dec 2014 so you should get the amount at least by end of January 2015. Kindly contact your company and ask them the status. I doubt that your company has not submitted the form yet. If they have already submitted the forms to PF office then ask for the O/c. copy because @PF office Public relation officer definitely stamped with the received date. Thus you can contact to PF office with that evidence.

You can withdraw your PF of a previous employer with minimal HR involvement .
In order to use this method , make sure your Form 11 is filled and completed . Here are the list of documents you require to withdraw your amount without involvement by the employer -
Form 19
Form 10 C
Form 15 G
Along with this forms you need to attach a cancelled cheque as well
Here is an article link that has a downloadable PF withdrawal form that you can use to withdraw your PF - https://quikchex.in/withdraw-provident-fund-balance/
From India, Mumbai
Mr. Ravindra kasture,
Since your service is less than or up to 6 months, you are eligible to withdraw, your and employer contribution to PF only. First, check your UAN no as provided by your employer, if they have not provided it to you, you can check and get your UAN no from the link Check UAN Status by mentioning your PF number details.
To withdraw PF without involvement of your Employer, you have to fill UAN based form 19 and can send directly to your concerned PF office along with Form 15G, Xerox copy of PAN card, NEFT form and cancelled cheque in support of your KYC.
Please note that the process will be applicable to those who had activate their UAN and their KYC details is uploaded and approved by employer in the PF web portal.
