EPF Claim Forms

Applicants must submit an appropriately filled claim form to the responsible authority before beginning an online or offline PF claim. For different types of claims, there are various types of EPF claim forms. For a smooth disbursement of funds, applying for EPF withdrawal using the correct claim form is critical. Here are some of the major PF forms:

  • Form 13 - Transferring PF/pension funds between accounts

  • Form 10D - To use when filing a claim for a pension
  • Form 19 - To be filled by the member for the final settlement of PF account

  • Form 51F - To claim an Employees' Deposit Linked insurance benefit, a member's legal heir/nominee must complete this form


Once you register for EPF withdrawal, you can know the claim status using online and offline methods. Before verifying your EPF claim status, keep EPF-related details such as your employer's information, extension code, employer's EPF regional office, UAN, and an active mobile phone with UAN ready. It is important to know that there is no way to cancel the PF claim status online once the claim has been processed. Applicants can, however, contact the EPFO-Regional Office as soon as possible to revoke their online request for EPF withdrawal.
