PF Claim Status
Employees Provident Fund is basically a social security and savings scheme for an employee in India. Employers who are engaged in certain Industries and engaging 20 or more employees are required to enroll all employee under PF on the Unified Portal and provide UAN. This article is based on the procedure for viewing PF claim status through various methods like EPF website, UMANG App, missed call and SMS.
Any employee can check his PF claim status after making an application for PF withdrawal. In case, if an employee is having UAN then the PF claim must be made in PF claim form 11. It does not require the employer’s attestation and can be submitted online through the unified portal.
In case, an employee is not having UAN can apply for PF claim using PF claim form 19. It must be attested by the employer and employee and submitted at the nearest EPFO office.
