How To Withdraw PF (Provident Fund)?

Employees can readily withdraw their PF online. Through EPFO’s member e-SEW site, this is possible.

Once they reach retirement age, the employees are able to withdraw their whole PF balance. However, if they meet specific requirements, they may withdraw some money even before retirement.

Important Points For Provident Fund Withdrawal

To deposit money into a PF account, one must link their Aadhar card to their universal account number (UAN). This can be done online via the UMANG smartphone app or via the EPFO website.

Before withdrawing PF, the “Know Your Customer” or KYC formality must be completed.

PAN cards are required for KYC, and after the process is over, EPFO designates the PF account as “verified”.
