Simplified EPS/ EPF Withdrawal Claim Forms 19, 10C & 31 (UAN based)

Simplified UAN based EPF Withdrawal Claim Forms (Form 19 UAN, Form 10C UAN, Form 31 UAN)

EPFO has introduced Composite PF Claim Forms (Aadhar/ Non-Aadhar), Pension Claim Form (Aadhaar) and Composite Claim Form (PF/ EPS/ EDLI) for Death cases. As a result, the Claim Forms No. 5IF, 10C, 10D, 19, 20 and 31 (including UAN Forms 19, 10C, 10D and 31) stands withdrawn. Further, now partial PF withdrawals shall be allowed based on Self Certification (instead of other documents/ certificates), using new Composite PF Claim Forms (Aadhar/ Non-Aadhar).

Earlier, the EPFO had notified that the employees whose details like AADHAAR Number and Bank Account Number have been seeded in their Universal Account Number (UAN) and whose UAN have been activated, may submit their PF withdrawal claims in Form 19 UAN, 10C UAN and 31 UAN directly to the regional EPF Office even without attestation of their respective employers. Now the EPFO has dispensed with those forms.

Also, the EPFO has issued an Order containing instructions on implementation of the above initiative, which is based on Central Govt. directives, along with the formats of new / revised PF Withdrawal Claim Forms, as under:

 EPFO Order No. SU/10(1)2011/Changes in MAP/31406 dt.1 Dec. 2015

Earlier, the members/ employees under PF were using EPS/ EPF forms 10C UAN, 19 UAN and 31 UAN, for PF/ Pension withdrawal without attestation by respective employers. These forms were being used by members / employees under PF whose AADHAAR Number and Bank details have been seeded as KYC and have been duly verified by the employer using digital signature thereof and the details in form No. 11 (new) have already been completed / submitted. Further, the Member/ Employee were required to attach a cancelled cheque containing the name of employee, bank account number, IFSC code of the bank / branch, etc. bank details with the above UAN based PF withdrawal claim forms to expedite the withdrawal process.

On the other hand, all other employees not fulfilling the above conditions were required to make their claims of withdrawal in non-uan forms No. 19, 10C & 31.

Relaxation in the instructions for Mandatory use of UAN based PF Claim forms in certain cases by EPFO

The EPFO vide Circular dt. 13 July 2016 had made partial modification/ relaxation in the instructions for mandatory use of UAN based PF Claim forms in certain cases due to difficulties being faced by members, as under:

EPFO Relaxes instructions for mandatory use of UAN based PF Claim forms in certain cases

EPFO Instructions for accepting Declaration Form 31 and Form 31 (UAN based) both without Employer’s Attestation

EPFO had clarified that the Declaration Form can be accepted without attestation by the employer both in the case of Claim Form 31 as well as UAN based Claim Form No. 31 (UAN), as under:

Attestation of Employer not required on Declaration with Form31/ 31 (UAN): EPFO
