I joined a new Organisation in Jan 2020. I was asked for Aadhaar card to enroll in EPF, so I informed I do not have an Aadhaar card. At that time the company was not registered with EPF office. But from my January salary, the company deducted PF from my salary. In April the company asked me again for Aadhaar card, I tried to get an Aadhaar card but most of the centres in Chennai were closed due to Covid19. Because of no revenue to the company, they decided in mid-Jun to permanently layoff a few employees and I was in the list. 31st July is my last working day, this month I am on a 25% salary. Now they are saying to give Aaadhaar card to create UAN which is not possible as even yesterday I went to the post office to get Aadhaar card.
Now my situation is that I could lose my PF contribution money. What are my options? Will I get both my contribution and employer contribution? Can I request them to transfer the amount to my salary bank account?
I also have a company laptop that I need to return. When will be the right time to handover the laptop?
I want this to be fair. Please help me with your advice. I am in a situation where I need to pay my son's school fees and this PF money will help me in a big way.
