We have a situation where, one of our employee who was resigned and joined in other company around three to four years ago. Since then, he neither transferred his PF Account nor withdrawn. Recently we came to know that he expired recently. And his nominee (Spouse) approached us to settle his PF account or transfer to the the company where he joined after working with us.
Now my concern is that, can we process with the withdrawal formalities (along with pension process) as we generally do for our employee who expires when he is working in our company. If so, please detail the process. Or, is there any alternative methods to help her out.
Kindly revert as early please.

There is no issue in doing the formalities. They will be filling up the form 20 by attaching all the documents to process the claim. Your work is to check his joining date, dob, resigned date, death certificate, legalor certificate, etc and authorize it and send it back to EPFO.
Do it on humanitarian grounds and help them.
