EPFO facilitates online filing of claims for members having an activated UAN
EPFO has launched a new facility in the employee’s Member Interface of Unified Portal for employees / members. It enables members / employees to submit Online Claims based on Aadhar to avail benefits under EPF (Form 19), Pension (Form-10C) and PF Part Withdrawals (Form-31).
This facility will be available to the members after having carried out the following:
(i) Activated their UAN
(ii) Aadhar seeded and demography verified
(iii) Bank details seeded
(iv) OTP based e-KYC from UIDAI has been done on the portal before submission of online claims.
With this new facility, settlement of claims will be faster as the Regional Offices of PF are advised to settle claims within 5 days. The Regional Offices are further advised to speed up the verification of Aadhar so that members can avail this facility at the earliest.
