EPF Claim Status Shows Under Process For More Than 10 Days

  • It happens in very rare cases, but it doesn’t mean that your claim is rejected. It has 50-50% chances for your claim rejection. The reason for this is your data may not be updated in EPFO database or EPFO officials kept your application for pending for further verification.
  • If you are also facing the same issue then it is better to raise a grievance at PF portal, then 24-48 hours EPFO officials will check your application and they will mail you the exact reason for the delay of your EPF claim.

What To Do If Your Claim Gets Rejection

If your claims get rejected then the reason for rejection will be updated in PF claim status portal. If the rejection happens due to the employee mistake then the rejected PF withdrawal forms will be sent to employee address. If rejection happens due to employer mistake then the rejected forms will be sent to the employer address.

If you have claimed in online you have to correct the mistakes and again apply for EPF claim.

How Many Days It Will Take To Get PF Amount After Re-Submission Of Rejected Claims

If your claim is rejected due to wrong bank account details like a wrong bank account number or IFSC code, then you need to submit PF re authorization letter to your regional EPF office.

After submission of PF reauthorization letter within 7 -10 days, you will get your PF claim amount.

If your PF claim rejection happens due to any other reasons like wrong personal details or due to authorized officers signature mismatch then again you need to claim your PF amount after solving the problems.
