Members are allowed to deduct a three-month basic salary (basic payment allowance) or 75 percent of the amount represented on their debt in their provident fund account, whichever is less.

-IPFO allows subscribers to withdraw unpaid refunds in certain circumstances such as illness, home purchase etc.

-Now, individuals can withdraw money from their PF account, citing the COVID-19 epidemic as a reason.

-Members who have already used the first upgrade of COVID-19 can now opt for the second upgrade again.

-The provision and process of withdrawal of COVID-19 in advance is the same as in advance.

-Othermore, EPF withdrawals can be made either:
Submission of body request for withdrawal
Application submission online
Submission of body request

For this, one can download a new claim form (Aadhaar) / a compiled claim form (Non-Aadhaar) from the EPFO ​​website.

-A new claim form (Aadhaar) can be completed and submitted to the relevant EPFO ​​office without the employer’s proof and a new claim form (Non-Aadhaar) will be completed and submitted with the employer’s evidence to the relevant EPFO ​​office. One can also note that in the event that a limited number of EPFs are issued by an employee in a variety of circumstances, more recently, the requirement to issue various certificates has been reduced and the authentication option has introduced EPF subscribers.
