EPFO has launched Form-19 (UAN), Form-10-C (UAN), and Form-31 (UAN) to provide benefit to a large number of employees who can now withdraw their EPF amount without employers’ attestation. However, this facility is applicable to those employees who have completed their Form-11 (New) details and the employer has seeded the Aadhaar and bank details as KYC and uploaded the same to the UAN portal duly attested through Digital Signature.
Earlier, after leaving employment, employees were supposed to get their forms for withdrawal of EPF amount attested through an employer as only the employer could identify the worker and his/her details.
After the launch of UAN (Universal Account Number), EPFO has started collecting the KYC details such as Aadhaar, PAN, Bank details etc. duly attested by the employer. So, the employee is not required to verify the Form by his employer. He can provide a mobile number, UAN and canceled cheque of his/her bank account and address as basic details and submit the same under his/her signature. Based on his KYC previously submitted by the employer the money will be sent to his/her bank account provided by the employer.
