Dear All,

Please help..............!

It's regarding the amount withdrawal from PF accumulation for the purpose of education of daughter of one of the employees working in our company for more than 7 years at managerial cadre.

I am getting a bit confused on this. I believe, since PF amount does belong to the employee, he can take out the amount subject to the guidelines/limitation prescribed by EPFO. In respect to the above mentioned scenario, I think 50% of the total accumulated amount can be obtained. pl correct if it's wrong.

But the term "education loan facility" is also used when it comes to name the benefits that can be availed under PF act. My question is, can an employee withdraw the amount in this condition or will he have to apply for loan based on PF accumulation? In case, loan will be the option, what will be the rate of interest for it's payment.

Also, do let me know of the formalities that to be done for availing the amount. So far, I came to know that we need to provide cancelled cheque with IFSC code and enclose estimation fee particulars for year wise from college/university.

I checked EPFO site wherein I came across form-31, which is meant for availing amount for house construction. pl provide me relevant link/form so that I could help the employee properly.

Will appreciate your timely help.

Dear Vishal,
You can definitely take the loan for education of your children.
- You should have contributed 7 years continuously to your PF account.
- Maximum you can avail 50% of your contribution (only) which includes interest that you have gained over 7 years.
- The same form 31 that you have mentioned can be used to place the request. Along with that you may have to submit the education expense details.
Hope this may help you.

This is a very cool idea. I adore active team building. Last time we had a quest in the office and it was very boring. So the next time we go to the gym to compete. I advise you to offer to take a sportsцуфк, and who does not have it, you can buy leggings will be useful in the future, because they are comfortable.
