  1. Hi Sir,
    I filled my PF settlement form 19 and 10C on 02.08.2021 and it is settled on 12th and 13th Aug. 2021. I also received a message on my mobile number on 14th Aug ’21 that money will be credited within 3 working days in your bank account. But it is going to be 1 month & 4 days still i am unable to receive my money. Yesterday I called in my PF office they are telling me my pf is returned back but when i am checking online (on my PF account) it is showing settled only. kindly please help. i am unable to understand why my settled PF is returned because i checked all my KYC details they all are correct.

  2. Dear Sir ,

    My PF claim raised on 9th July got returned on 16th as Account number was wrong. But even after one month neither the amount is showing in the passbook , nor the online status is showing as returned only grievance reply is as returned. I fixed the account number online, got it approved from my employer and when i visited the KR puram PF office they asked me to claim again. This claim got rejected with the status that the claim is already settled. In this case what is the recourse i need to take. Online grievance is not replying with correct status , they just reply with raise the request when amount recredited . Or recredit in progress. Does it mean that their is something fishy ?

  3. Sir I got a msg to my mobile number from epfo telling my asr form got rejected on 23rd but after that again and again I’m receiving msg from epfo telling that claim is under process for the same claim id which got rejected wat does it mean?

    • To know the exact status, register a complaint on EPF grievance portal website.
      If your ASR is rejected then solve that problem, and resubmit the ASR or reapply for PF online.

  4. Hii Sir,
    Mistakenly I had given wrong account number in my PF account. Last time when I applied.. Claim was settled but amount went back to my PF account… I didn’t notice the account number I reclaimed the amount… It got rejected and the reason was claim already settled…. And the status is also same i.e already settled.

    Now I have informed my employer to correct the account details. After correction do I need to apply ASR or directly claim for withdrawal from my PF account.

  5. Sir my name in UAN portal is John samuvel but in bank account it is John S so will my claim be rejected if I proceed with the following

  6. Sir I submitted Asr form and it got rejected due to the following reasons
    Wat does this mean and now wat should I do

    • Maybe your ASR form is not signed by your employer, so better reapply for the PF online after correcting your bank details on the UAN portal.

      • The asr form which I submitted had the attestation from my employer with the company seal but still I got it rejected and rejecting reason was as I mentioned above why did this happen sir

        • Is your bank passbook signed by the bank officer, or in case if you have submitted a cheque then make sure your name is printed on it?
          If everything is fine then register a complaint on the EPF grievance portal website to know the exact reason for rejection.
