    Check EPF Withdrawal Status Online

    Posted In India - By NitiN Kumar Jain On Friday, November 19th, 2010 With 96 Comments

    In India, it generally takes 6 to 8 months to settle Employee Provident Fund (EPF) claim from EPF India. Although the current provident fund settlement period is agreed to be one month but still it takes more than 6 months and sometimes only an agent can help us to settle our EPF claims.

    A year back EPF claim settlements were promised to be settled in a weeks time but neither then they were settled in a week nor now they are and I don’t think it would be in a sooner time.

    Not many would be knowing that we can check the status of our withdrawal claim online. You can enter your organization and your PF details there and check your PF withdrawal status. Establishment Code is within your PF number. For e.g. if your PF number is HR/GGN/XXXXX/YYYY then XXXXX is the establishment code and YYYY is your employee number.

    Link: epfindia.com/indiaepf/loginnew.aspx

    Although it says the system is updated till date but I really doubt if it is a reliable way to know the claim status.

    I have generally noticed only one status: “Your Claim Not Received by this Office!“. If you come across any other status then do let us and others know.

    UPDATE 7th Mar 2011

    One of our reader, Imtiaz, shared an updated link which worked for me.

    Link: 124.153.110.57/epfo/homepage_claim_status_new.php

    Link: www.epfindia.com/ClaimStatus_New.html

    (Direct link: epfoservices.in/homepage_claim_status_new.php)

    After I entered my PF details, it displayed that they have received the claim and it is under process. Now that sounds that at least they have received it.

    What do you think, how long would they take?

    UPDATE 15th Mar 2011

    If you are waiting for your PF for a long time then just  register your grievance at the following link and they may get it done sooner. You may also want to visit them in person or call them to know the status of your grievance. Grievance link

    UPDATE 17th Mar 2011

    After writing a grievance, I finally received my EPF and that too within a week of writing the grievance. That’s really good. But do we need to write a grievance for receiving what we should be receiving itself? It’s our right after all.

    UPDATE 9th Oct 2012

    Other EPFO service that are available online.

      Hi,

      How to find establishment code,extn code and a/c number.

      E.g. if a person having PF number as, MH/12345/6666 then what value to enter in text box

      • http://nitinkumarjain.in NitiN Kumar Jain

        After selecting the city of your establishment …. just enter 12345 in the establishment code and 6666 in the account number (as in your example) …. extension is generally left blank … try it out …

    • Pritam

      What happens when it says “No Record Found”? Should I file a grievance?

      • http://nitinkumarjain.in NitiN Kumar Jain

        that may mean that your pf withdrawal request has not reached there at all .. contact your org to get the receipt of their submission .. after getting it u can personally visit ur rpfc or file a grievance attaching the receipt …

    • Mayank

      registering your grievance at Employees Provident Fund internet Grievance Management System (EPFiGMS) portal does not necessarily mean that you will get your refund early.
      I have been waiting with an under process status for over 3 months now and they closed my query with the weirdest and most unsatisfactory reply saying that they are upgrading systems and so it is getting delayed…no mention of estimeated time it would take further to process the refund.

      • http://nitinkumarjain.in NitiN Kumar Jain

        That’s true … u can personally visit them and give them a written letter …

      Hi Nitin,
      I recently applied for PF withdrawl from an organisation where I had worked almost 11 years back for about 9 months. I sent the requisite indemnity form etc and they forwarded it to the PF ofc in Hyderabad. Today I got a letter from PF ofc Hyderabad denying me the claim citing the reason that I have already withdrawn the same on 10-2008.
      My query is that what should be my course of action get my PF because, if I have not applied for PF all these years then how has it already been paid to me in 2008? Atleast my bank account should reflect the money, even if my memory doesn’t!

      kindly advise me ASAP about your suggestions to this problem.
      Thanks a ton,
      Priyanka

      • http://nitinkumarjain.in NitiN Kumar Jain

        You should immediately give them a written complaint saying you have not filed for claim before now and the matter has to be investigated as to where your amount has actually gone … if nothing comes I would urge to file an RTI ..

        • Kaulpriyanka

          Thanks a ton Nitin. Will keep u posted.

      Hi all,

      It has been more than 1 year since I submitted my claim. First, the GREAT EPF (BANDRA OFFICE) said they are automating the process and that is the reason for the delay. I have registered a few grievances –  but no response at all. I tried calling them – no response at all.

      In any way, i dont think I will ever get my PF money. I just wonder what are the EPF employees doing there or what would have happened to my money. ????

      • http://nitinkumarjain.in NitiN Kumar Jain

        Did you try giving them written grievance .. that might help if not already …

    • Narendra Kumar S.S

      I had applied for PF transfer 2.5 years ago and till now I don’t know whether the transfer is completed!
      I have submitted a grievance 6 months ago and the status is “Under Consideration” for last 6 months!!

      Our company has a PF consultant and I asked him to check the status in the PF department itself directly. He used his contacts and told me that the PF transfer is affected on 2nd May 2012.
      But, still I don’t have any written acknowledgement or letter supporting this.

      I tried to check the status online. I read in many blogs (including this one) that we can check the transfer status in the same “Claim Status” link. So, I clicked on http://www.epfindia.com/ClaimStatus_New.html and entered my details.
      I tried with both the PF numbers – the PF number from which the transfer is being done and the PF number to which it will get transferred.
      For both, I am getting the following status:
      STATUS for Member ID: BGBNG00*****00000000** * * No record found* * Data available since last six months. * ** * BANGALORE data availaible from 09-11-2011. Last updated on 08-05-2012 at 05:35 pm * ** * Approval Details on PPO and Scheme Certificates will be made available soon.. * *So, what does mean?The transfer is done and the online status is not correct?ortransfer is not done?orthis is not the correct link?Anybody who had applied for online transfer, able to use this link to know the status?

      • http://nitinkumarjain.in NitiN Kumar Jain

        You need to contact the authorities for the details … This is true that this link can also be used to know transfer status and I have seen in past but there is some discrepancy in the system too …

    • Bhargavi

      Hi Nitin,

      I had resigned from my earlier in Jan, 2012 and applied for PF withdrawal somewhere during Sept, 2012. Today when i check the status on the links mentioned by you, it says “* * No record found

      * * Data available since last six months. * *
      * * VASHI data availaible from 28-07-2012. Last updated on 28-01-2013 at 05:50 pm * *
      * * Approval Details on PPO and Scheme Certificates will be made available soon.. * *”

      Is there any hopes that my money would return to me… Also the link mentioned is useful for checking the status of PF withdrawal or PF transfer???

      kindly help.

      Thanks in advance and Regards,

        The link basically is for PF withdrawal … you should see a proper status .. my personal experience is to have received PF in around 6 months … try again or share your PF and we can try …
