Dear Friend,

To answer your query of PF..!

First try to understand why the companies is not submitting your pf forms in PF office.

if you don't get proper response, YES.! you do have an alternate way to get your PF claims.

Since, employer do not verify, You have to attest your EPF withdrawal form from other credible authorities. These authorities are

Manager of a bank.

Any gazetted officer.

Member of the Central Board of Trustees./ committee/ Regional Committee (Employees Provident Fund Organization).

Magistrate/ Post/ Sub Post Master/ President of Village Panchayat/ Notary Public.

As you can see, the list is long, who can attest the withdrawal form. But in practice attestation by the bank manager is preferable. Also, Manager should be from the branch, where you maintain an account.

Note that you have to take signature and stamp in every page of the application.

Since this is an alternative route, EPFO does not encourage this process. Also, there is more chance of fraud as well. Hence, It asks for a letter which should state the reason of the direct application for EPF withdrawal.

It is advisable to attach evidence, if any, of non-cooperation by the employer. This will give weight to your application. Try to correspond in writing with your employer, so that you have some evidence of non-cooperation.

Attach an indemnity bond (affidavit) in a 100 rupee stamp paper. Although it is not mandatory according to rules. But you should not take any chance.

Also, attach service proof. Application of one of Planmoneytax readers was rejected for the lack of service proof. Hence, you should attach copies of payslip, ID card, form16 or appointment letter from employer to substantiate your claim.

Also, attach a copy of your identity proof and address proof.
