My name is Rajiv. The question is rejection for advance claim from my EPF account. I had applied online 3 times for advance claim (form 31) for house purchase, which got rejected due to “Insufficient/Ineligible service” popping up during approval process. Based on suggestion, I also applied offline, which got rejected due to same reasons. I was working in L&T from 2002 to 2010. L&T has its own trust for employee PF (Exempted). In 2010. as part of L&T business takeover, I joined an another company with its EPF maintained by PF office. Currently I am employed with the same company. My claim amount is per allowable withdrawal, total years of experience is 18 years (more than eligibility for withdrawal). My L&T amount has got transferred to my new EPF account. When I login to UAN website, under service history, my current organization work details are shown. L&T years of working is not mentioned (which i think should be shown). My KYC is updated with Aadhar, PAN and Bank details. Request your inputs on the probable causes for the rejection. Thanks.
Suggest you to submit your grievance to the EPFO and inquire about your total service years that is available in EPFO database(s), via this link..
You may also request for Annexure-K to cross check about the Transfer of funds from your previous EPF account(s) to the latest one.

Thanks. When I login to UAN portal, my existing company DOJ is shown as 2010 under service history.
Did you get the funds transferred from your old EPF account (prior to 2010) to the current EPF account?
Yes the amount got transferred, and is reflecting in my passbook. This was done based on Annexure K submitted.
