I’m from Malaysia. I was working in Hyderabad India from 2007 to 2014. Now I’m 58 years old and would like to know the procedure of EPF final withdrawal. What documents I need to present in EPFO? I had a valid PAN card and EPF account number. I am told by someone that I MUST have Aadhar Card for my withdrawal application. Is it really required? I don’t have the same. My SBI account not active anymore n can EPF do transactions through my bank account in Malaysia?
I´m from Singapore. I worked in Chennai from 2010 to 2014. I am 60 years now and would like to withdraw my PF. I have my PAN card but have lost my salary slips and hence do not have my PF number. I still have an account in ICICI bank and there is some balance there. The account is probably frozen due to being inactive but there is interest payment being deposited every month. Hence I should be able to activate it.
Please advise on the procedure for withdrawal based on the above. Will I be able to retrieve my PF number from my passport and visa details.
