Provident Fund (PF) is an investment fund provided to a salaried class person, contribution to which is made by both the employer and employee. The employee can avail the benefits of the investment upon retirement although there are provisions that allow the employee to liquidate the funds while in employment, subject to terms and conditions. The contribution made by the employer is equivalent to that of the employee i.e., 12% of the basic pay and DA, every month.

For claiming funds, a request has to be raised to The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO). The EPFO is a statutory body under the Ministry of Labour and Employment. The process of withdrawal of PF can be referred to here. In this article, we will see how we can check the status of our PF Withdrawal claim.
