I am not sure exactly but Form 19 is used for EPF withdrawal & if you have contributed in pf a/c more than 9 years than pension amount will not to withdrawn. If you don't withdraw than form 13 is used to transfer the EPF account from one company to another. Eligibility for pension is at the age of 58.
Thanks & Regards,

Form 19 is used for withdrawal of employee's contribution and Form 10 C is used for withdrawal of EPS (Employer part payment). If you deny for pension scheme certificate then only you will get this contribution. If you say "YES" for pension scheme, you will get lamination. As per revised EPFO circular, TDS is applicable withdrawal of PF before completion of 5 years, which please note. Always maintain and guide people to transfer the PF amount, this is only a saving that will be useful at the time of retirement to a private employee. Always thinking about withdrawing and spending is not advisable.
Secondly, you are eligible for claiming pension on and after crossing 50 Years, Lesser percentage than when you get pension after crossing 58 years. This is upto you to take a decision.
Once you withdraw your contributions or employer contribution, you cannot use the same number in new organisation.
I was advised by RPFC at Hyd not to submit the scheme certificate but to get them all on and after completion of 50 or 58 yrs to compile and decide about the pension eligibility. If we submit the scheme certificate, it was told that chances are there for its missing and it will be a big headache to obtain a duplicate.
We can work for 2 yrs or 3 yrs or so but need to accumulate scheme certificates and safe keeping them with us only.
You have not given the contribution period. In absence of this we cannot give you exact opinion of your query. Since you have left the company and working in another company, provisions are there in the scheme to get it transfered from your old account to newe account by applying form No.11 and Form No.13. The PF account will vary from company to company and shall not remain the same.
Secondly, I am repeating once again through this forum don't withdraw contribution and shall try to get it transferred till the member is attaining the age of 58 years which will be beneficial to the members to get his PF account settled as adequate amount accumulated with interest can get so that it will be helpful to the members and will also get Employees Pension as per scheme.
