Employer’s PF Claim Status

EPF claim status can only help track the development of withdrawal plea if the applicant has completed the application process correctly.

Consequently, employees should also know the steps involved in applying for EPF withdrawal online to streamline the entire process.

For instance, one has to proceed with these following steps to complete the process correctly through the UAN portal –

Step 2 – Click the ‘Online Services’ option from the menu.

Step 3 – From the drop-down menu, select ‘Claim (Form-31, 19 & 10C)’.

With the completion of this process, employees can claim their pension fund and track their PF claim status both online and offline. Additionally, applicants should note that their employer must approve their withdrawal plea to initiate the disbursal process. Once it is approved, the requested sum of EPF would be disbursed to their registered bank account. Usually, it takes around 2-3 weeks for the fund to get transferred into the applicant’s account.

The government has launched the Umang app in order to make it convenient for you to check your PF balance. With this app, you can view your passbook, raise a claim, and track the claim via the app itself. All you need to do is register by entering a one-time password that is sent to your mobile number.
