How to withdraw EPF through Govt’s UMANG App?

As you may be aware, the EPFO has launched an online EPF claim facility during the month of May (2017). This is a great initiative by the EPFO. This online PF withdrawal facility is beneficial for both PF subscribers and employees of EPFO.

Besides the online EPF withdrawal facility, an EPF subscriber (employee) can also submit his/her offline PF claims through new Composite Claim Forms.

However, it has been observed that the online EPF withdrawal facility has often been shut down for maintenance activities, due to which the employees are unable to withdraw PF reader query EPFO online EPF withdrawal portal down technical maintenance

One of my blog reader’s has suggested an another alternative for making online EPF withdrawals i.e, through Govt’s UMANG AppOnline EPF withdrawal through Umang app mobile app by Government

  • Yusuf Siddiqui says:


    I worked for company A for 3.5 years. As per the new system we can only withdraw fund online. I’ve created my profile on PF portal and see that all of my KYC details are updated. I left my previous job on 4 March 2018 and joined company B on 16th April 2018. My company A has updated the last working date in the system but as per the process I’ve linked my UAN with my new company B. I wanted to withdraw PF for my company A on urgently basis but since I’ve linked my UAN my date of joining has been changed and my date of exit is also vanished. I tried a lot online but unable to claim my PF. Can you please help me in this matter? I don’t know what to do.

    I also visited PF office and they’ve given me the PF form to withdraw it offline but my previous organisation A is not ready to accept it as PF office is not accepting the offline form from them. Below is the screenshot which shows that even online transfer can’t be done.

    Sir i applied my pf by umang app on 18 april 2018 but still now i have not received any amount and there is no 10c form in umang app only showing form 31 and how can i withdrawal my pension contribution and employer contribution..plzz help me

    • Dear Nakul,
      Did you apply for full EPF withdrawal?

      Mostly your ex-employer might not have updated your Date of Exit and Date of Joining in your service history. Kindly contact them. Once they update these details, you will get to see the options for EPF withdrawal (Form 19) and EPS withdrawal (Form 10c).

  • Anna says:


    My previous company A’s PF account is transferred to company B. In the member passbook of company B is showing only EPF amount of company A, EPS amount is not transferred. Now i want to close my PF account permanently and want to withdraw full EPF and EPS amount.

    I worked in company A for 17 months and Company B for 2 Months.

    Q1. Now when m trying to withdraw my EPS amount through UMANG app, system shows only current PF account in dropdown for selection(i.e. company B’s PF account)and when m selecting the current PF account then system shows the error message as m ‘DATE OF EXIT IS LESS THAN 2 MONTHS FROM TODAY OR TOTAL SERVICE IS LESS THAN 6 MONTHS’ ( i think in this case system takes date from company B’s PF account where i worked for 2 months but the same EPS belongs to Company A’s PF where i worked for almost 17 months)

    Kindly help me with the confusion and what m I suppose to do now?

    • Dear Anna,
      On successful transfer of EPF, EPS also gets transferred, but EPS balance is not reflected in Passbook.
      However, the service period and pension contributions get carried forward in EPFO databases.

      Probably, due to short service the online claim facility wont accept online request. You may have to go ahead with offline withdrawal.Or Kindly contact the here..
