  1. Dear Sir

    PF/EPS withdrawal has been rejected two times due to following reason mentioned by EPF dept.


    kindly help what to write in column 19. ???

  2. my dad retired at age of 60 and his service is 35 years. he want to withdraw pf so at the time of pf withdrawal form 15h is applicable or not

  3. Hi,

    I have completed five years of experience but still asking to fill form 15G, whom do I need to approach in this case.


  4. Hello Mr. Rajesh,

    Thank you so much for going through the efforts to put this together. This is by far the best guide on PF withdrawal using 15G online.

    Although you have answered most of my queries through the post, I still have some confusion concerning the terminologies used in the form.

    1. The thing with 5 years of service – Should I have worked for at least 5 years in my LAST COMPANY to be eligible for ‘No TDS’ or it’s a combination of all my past work experience? I had a PF settlement in 2016 as well, should that affect this ‘5 years of service’ thing?

    2. The estimated total income in #17 – Is that the income I received in this financial year (2020-2021) so far and is that before or after exemptions? This is my tax slip from my last employer (I’m still unemployed), can you please go through it and tell me which of these amounts should I add in #17?

    Thank you in advance for your help! Much appreciated!


    • 1. If you have already claimed your PF in 2016, then your new PF service period will starts from 2019 from the date of your new job. If it is 5 yrs or above then you don’t need to submit form 15G.
      2. The simple way to mention the estimated income is to multiply your monthly in-hand salary with 12 months. If you are not working now, then multiply it with the number of months you worked in the FY 2020-21.

      • Thank you, Rajesh!

        I joined my last employer in April 2018 and left in June 2020.

        #My in hand salary/take home so far is Rs. 424540
        #Tax Deducted so far is Rs. 100796 (the tax is deducted based on the projection of my earnings in 2020-2021 based on the last CTC)
        #PF Balance is Rs. 400000

        So, in line 16 of Form 15G, I should enter Rs. 400000 and then in line 17 Rs. 824540. And that I have to pay a %10 TDS on my PF withdrawal which is Rs. 40000?

        I’ve been charged more tax than the nominal already because of the projected tax calculations rather than my actual earnings in the FY. Although, I can get a refund when I file my tax return, isn’t there anything I can do to avoid this 10% tax on my PF withdrawal at this moment?

        Thanks again!

  5. Dear Mr Rajesh,
    Thank you for taking the time to create & share valuable info like this. It is very very helpful.
    Regards & God bless.

  6. Hello,

    My mom’s IB account has a few MMD and FDs. They were a gift from my family. She doesn’t work. She hasn’t filed for Income tax. She is 70+. Her PAN details are registered with the bank. Should she file the 15H form? The bank has already got the form last year. Now as we cannot go outside much, we are trying to deal with internet banking.

    If she does have to file, what should she put in these blanks? The limit amount is already filled by default as 5 lacs. I am not sure about the other details requested- like there are lines of information needed like indentification number etc.,I have no idea what it means. Requesting your guidance

  7. Hello sir, my pf amount is below 30,000/- and I worked for 13 months. Is 15g form required to upload? I wish to withdraw the whole amount.

  8. I have resigned my job from the previous company on Feb-2020, after 7 years of service. Am I need to submit form 15G for PF withdrawal?

  9. Dear Team, i was employed with 2 companies. Please suggest how could i withdraw my pf from both companies. Please suggest which step i follow from below.
    Step 1 : should i transfer my pf balance to another pf account.
    Step 2 : should i apply online claim for both companies individually by submitting form 15G.

    • Better transfer your PF amount to your last worked company because it is not possible to link the same Aadhar with Two UANs.
      After transfer, it is your choice to withdraw the PF amount or not, but remember after PF transfer only PF amount will transfer, the pension amount will not transfer.
      To withdraw PF and pension you need to submit form 19 and 10C respectively, not form 15G. Form 15G is required to avoid TDS if your PF amount is more than 50000 rs and service is below 5 yrs.

  10. Hi Sr, I left the company on 06-01-2020. Now, I am jobless and applying for PF full withdrawal. So, what should I enter in fields 4, 15, 16, and 17. My KYC has been done already in 2019. Please suggest me how should i go ahead now.

  11. Sir my epf settlement amount below 30,000/-, duration of work period one year(2008-2009), whether form 15g upload or not in the Unified portal

  12. My dad retired two years ago at age 58 govt employee,now he wants to withdraw his entire pf amount, whether he has to submit form 15h? his service period is 30 years.while applying for pf withdraw in online whether he has to submit form 15h or not? kindly clarify.

    • Transfer your PF amount from previous PF account to present PF account and after transfer you can leave your previous UAN.

    • If your KYC like aadhar and bank account details are linked with your UAN number then update your date of exit in UAN member portal and submit form 19 and 10C online. If KYC not linked then you have to link KYC at UAN portal and ask your employer approve them, after approval you can claim your PF amount.

      • same i left my job in april 2019 , for studying so i need my pf money for my education fees , do i have to submit 15g form as its optional and what should i select for purpose for which advancement is required.

    • That means your previous employer is not approving your KYC details in their employer PF portal, so you have to talk with them directly to approve your KYC details, It is an easy process that takes less than a minute.
