    • नई चेक बुक मिलने में समय लगता है, इसलिए बैंक पासबुक के लिए आवेदन करना बेहतर है। आप ASR form के साथ बैंक पासबुक जमा कर सकते हैं।

    • You can submit a bank passbook copy also.
      If you don’t have a bank passbook, then apply for it in your bank, which you can get it on the same day.

    • Reapplying for PF is the convenient way, correct your bank details in UAN Portal and after approval reclaim the PF. In the meantime, your PF amount will reflect in the PF passbook, even though it doesn’t reflect you can reapply for the PF.

    • It will take 7-20 days for claim settlement, even though your claim settles but still, you don’t receive your PF amount due to the wrong IFSC date.
      And that PF amount will return to your PF account in another 10 days, in the meantime correct your bank details, and once the amount returns then reapply for the PF.

  7. Same here got an issue with this epfo thing . Kyc update done but i did not recieved any otp to the regestered mobile number and all of my pf has been claim to an unknown bank account .beside there is no epfo office in my place . So i rushed to the police to filed a complain against fraud and advice me to speak to the epfo upline so confused . Whom should i reached . From my point of view pf is not a very good thing . Its better to take a full salary instead of all this trouble . If full salary was given all this thing will not happen . For most i dont trust this epfo again . Savings could be done in our own personal account . Why epfo its a waste of time . To approve it takes time the money keeps on traveling by the time we recieved all the needs are almost done . What good is epfo . Just trouble

    • As they said correct your bank account details on UAN portal and ask your employer to approve them, after approval reclaim your PF amount.
      You can do this even though the returned PF amount is not showing in your PF passbook.
      Incase if it rejects then raise a complaint on the PF grievance portal website.

      • As you said I done all these things but still not getting result can you please provide me the contact number of Pf office representative so I can call him and try to get the solution

  10. Sir,
    My PF claim was settled but the amount was returned due to wrong bank details. I returned amount is reflecting in the passbook and my bank details are updated in the UAN portal. But I have resubmitted my claim for 3 to 4 times and each time they reject it saying claim already settled whereas the the claim though settled the amount is returned and reflecting in the passbook. PF office is just blindly rejecting the claim.
    What can I do Sir? Please suggest.

    • This time after applying for the claim, Raise a grievance on the EPF portal immediately, so that they will not reject your claim.

  11. Hello

    I have claim for PF withdrawal and received an amount in my Bank.
    But there is a mismatch between settled and credited amount.
    Since I am part of “Withdrawal of EPF after 5 years of continuous service” category, there should not be any TDS deduction.

    What could be reason for less credited amount ? How can register complaint for this ?

    Looking forward to hear from you.

  12. My recent advance claim settled on 30 dec but the amount is not credited in account,i raised grevience but he said that,” you are requested to reissue performa attested by previous employer with cancelled cheque.”
    My question is:-
    1) So basically he is asking for reauthorization form?, which you describe in this post.
    2) there is timeline given below the upper message, so should i have to submit the form before timeline because i left my recent employer and the admin department is not working from office, i could not get the sign and stamp so what should i do in this situation?
    3) After timeline expire the amount will credited to my Pf passbook?, If yes then i will be able to kyc my other bank account and then apply for the claim settlement.?
    Please resond asap, your responce will be appreciated.

    • If your PF is not credited due to wrong bank account details then you have to submit a PF reauthorization form with cancelled cheque. Or you cal also reclaim your PF amount again after correcting bank account details on the UAN portal.
      In both cases, you need to take help of your previous employer.
      Your PF amount will be credited back into your PF account within 7-10 days.

    • March 2020 is a long time ago, If your bank account number is wrong then the amount will be returned to your PF account. So pls check it.
      Now correct bank account details on UAN portal and ask your employer to approve them, after approval you can reclaim your PF amount.
