I have two questions regarding my late brother's pf and gratuity claim:
1. A.Srinivasan - my brother worked in XXX Ltd for more than 10 years (till 2005) and joined other companies subsequently. He passed away few years back. We are trying to claim from the XXX company i) pension and ii) gratuity and iii) superannuation. The company got closed and bought over by another company about a year back.
a. When I approached LIC for claiming his gratuity, it said that the application needs to be forwarded by the trustee of XXX ltd. I am unable to find the trustee of XXX when the company is closed. What do I do now ?
b. For claiming pension ( brother has scheme certificate) we are submitting form 10 D. In that form it is required that the company has to put its seal and signature. When the company itself is not there, how can I get both of them ?
I am struggling without proper guidance. Can someone help me ?
