Hi all - This is my first post in these forums. I hope everyone is having a safe and healthy 2021!

My PF withdrawal has failed recently and the reason for the rejection - Claim Rejected MEMBER WAS AN EPS MEMBER IN PREVIOUS ESTT WHEREAS NON EPS MEMBER IN PRESENT ESTT. This was an online request using the UAN portal.

My work history is

Oct 2013 t0 March 2019 - Company A . Here, I had a PF component and EPS component in salary - Approx EPS was 1,200 rs a month.

March 2019 - Quit Company A and joined B.

March 2019 - Sep 2019 - Company B. PF got transferred to the new companies account number, but in this firm, I am not enrolled for EPS contribution.

I am currently not employed in India and out of the country. How do I sort this issue and get my hard-earned money?

Please guide me. Thanks a lot.

Once the employee is registered in EPS, he will remain contributory member of EPS till last day of working or 58 of age, check the facts with your establishment HR
Previous UAN holders can not be treated as excluded employee under EPS or EPS

Thanks for your response. Does this mean I won't be able to get my EPF and EPS money till im 58? My ex company HR/Finance people are not helping me and the PF office mentioned I need to reach out to the employer.
I am not employed in India from Sep 2019. What can i do now?
Please guide me.

Misinterpretation of the reply in gross
in new establishment you have to continue your EPS as you were previously member of EPS in past service records, and this can not be discontinued unless the member attains 58+ of age
i.e once the member has joined EPS he has no exit way during whole service span,
You can discuss the present establishment that on which ground they did not paid contributed EPS, as it can not be avoided for existing EPS contributors below 58 of age,
out of employer part of 12% ...........8.33% goes to EPS and balance goes to EPF for all previous uan holders who are below 58 of age
