Dear Arunima Nanda,

Note that Employee provident fund money is totally yours and no matter what the situation, your past employer should be helping you in withdrawing it.

Here are the steps you need to do to successfully to withdraw your EPF without previous employer signatures.

Step 1

First download and fill up Form 19 (for EPF withdrawal) and Form 10C (for EPS Withdrawal)

Step 2

Get it attested by any one of the following

Manager of a bank (PSU preferred)

By any gazetted officer.

Magistrate / Post / Sub Post Master / Notary

Step 3

Write down a letter addressing the regional PF commissioner, stating the reason why you have to get it attested and how you are facing issues with your employer. In case you have any proof of unsupportive behavior from your employer, better attach it. (This step is optional and not mandatory)

Step 4

If you are unemployed, you will have to make an affidavit that proves that you are unemployed and get it printed on a Rs. 100 stamp paper with a notary or any gazetted officer signature on it. This is required because you need to be unemployed if you want to withdraw your EPF. If you are employed, you can transfer your EPF to your new employer.

Step 5

Send these forms to your regional EPF office and wait for next few months for some kind of action.

Step 6

Once your application is processed, the EPF withdrawal request will be honored and you will be paid. If you still dont see any action or response, then its time to file an RTI application to EPF Department for finding out the exact Status.

Thanks Ramya Ranjan. Appreciate the clarity.
My daughter's previous employer has closed his business and not available for signing the PF withdrawal form. The new employer is not covered by PF rules. What should be done in this is case. Regards

I agree with Ramyarajan view. You just follow the above mentioned steps PF will in your hands. You can also file RTI if PF department is clearing your file after following all these steps.
