I would like know whether EPS and PF withdrawal is linked or not.After completion of 10 years of service, EPS provides option of Scheme Certificate. Is this certificate any ways related to the PF withdrawals.
My point is since Form 19 and FORM 10 are for different schemes,so the withdrawals should not be linked

Hi Aranyak,
No the eps and pf are not linked . You can withdraw the pf once u leave the organization after the completing 10yrs or service or even less than that. For that withdrawl u need to fill form 19 which u know. For pension amount that can not be withdrawn in case the contribution is more than 10yrs. PF authority will provide u with pension certificate. In case u are unemployed , or started business or leaving for other countries for more than a year then u have to submit the copy of visa , then only u can claim the pension amount thru form 10-c.
The contribution if less than 10 years u can claim pension fund accumulated in your account by filling form10- c. There is option in 10-c form where they have asked whether to opt for pension certificate or withdrawl. Incase u want to withdraw u can opt for putting tic on withdrawl or if u opt for pension certificate than u have to tick on scheme certificate.
If any further doubts mail back

Dear jaswinder20
I would like to add on with regard to your query
12 % Employer contribution is segregated in to 2 parts
8.33 % in Pension
3.67% in PF
But Employees contribution of 12 % each month goes to PF.
You can receive PF Slips for the contribution you have made and what is interest you have acrrued on the money which is lying with PF Office.pls check with it.
out of the 51/2 year service please caleculate basing on the above principle
you had got pf amount of 40000 ( both 12% employee and 3.67% employer)
another chequ to get from pension fund. i.e. 8.33% of employer contribution to eps fund

Dear Ravi,
For pension, withdarwal benefit, scheme certificate etc. application should be through employer. For pension, form 10D is to be used. For withdrawal benefit & scheme certificate, the form is 10C.

Dear Pragyakh,
If you have a service of below 9 years and 6 months, you will get one time withdrawal benefit. If you have a service of 9 years and six months or more, one time withdrawal is not applicable. But you are eligible for pension. Minimum age to get pension is 50 years.
For pension use form 10D and for withdrawal certificate 10C. If you have not attained 58 years' age, you may apply for Scheme Certificate also thr' form 10 C.
