Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) scheme rules have been recently changed. Now you can withdraw money from your EPF only if you want to buy a house, pay home loan EMIs, etc.
To make withdrawal from EPF, you need to fill the new Composite Claim Form. Those subscribers who have an Aadhar number, bank account details available on the Universal Account Number (UAN) Portal and have an active UAN, can submit the form directly to the concerned EPFO office, without attestation of claim form by the employer.
The best part is that now harrassment from employer/ex-employer can be avoided.
Beware! I question everything and everybody.
