My service in previous company is more than 5 years, but in recent company is 3 years.
When I applied for pension (form 10) it was rejected saying "service is less than 6 months". They did not consider previous company's 5 year service.
How can I reapply for pension on EPFO? Or do I need to visit EPFO office?

Please refer to earlier queries and answers regarding PF pension, which could be retrieved from this Forum.
Please note that you have to complete 58 years of age to enable you to avail full pension. There is also an option to avail pension at a lesser rate when you attain 52 years or more.
As you have worked in 2 different companies, first you need to obtain 2 scheme certificates for the services rendered in both companies.
To become eligible for receiving pension, you need to have 10 years of service, and scheme certificates for the same period of services shall be submitted ot EPFO, when you complete 58 years of age.

following conditions have to be fulfilled
1) EPS contribution is 10+ years and remains deposited in EPFO, in same UAN, if anything is not transferred then the employee has to get it transferred through filing form 13
2) Employee has to attain 58+ years of age and get superannuation, i.e retirement
3) E Nomination is filed properly and e verification is done,
4) UAN is KYC compliant
and for information, form 10 is for withdrawal of EPS, not for pension , ........to avail pension form 10D is used

Hi Friend
Please clarify are you continuing in service or not.
If yes, you may contact your HR department to append your previous 5 years pensionable service to the present organisation for continuity of Pensionable service.
If you are not in service you may apply for Pension withdrawal along with PF withdrawal.
