Do you want to check your PF claim status? There are various ways to do it and this article will guide you through all of them.
Before we address the question ‘how to check PF claim status’, let us take a quick look at what exactly PF is.
PF is short for EPF or the Employee Provident Fund which is a fund created by making monthly contributions by both the employee and the employer. Every organization that employs more than 20 people needs to register for the EPF.
The employee and the employer contribute 12% and 3.67% of the employee’s base salary to the EPF fund, respectively. The remaining 8.33% of the 12% from the employer’s side goes to another fund called the Employee Pension Scheme (EPS). You can read more about the EPS.
You can withdraw funds from your EPF account either partially or in full, but that depends on how many years you have contributed, your age, and the purpose of withdrawal. Such requests or claims are referred to as your withdrawal claims and you can check it in various ways.
