    Default Clamining PF - Emploee as well as Employer??

    Hi,

    I recently resigned from my company, for an opportunity abroad, and now I am not sure the procedure involved in clamming PF. I checked some of the blogs and found out that there are contributions from both employee and employer. I know my contribution, but dont know what my company contributed! Is there anyway to find that out so that I can claim both the amount, correct me if I am wrong!

    Now I am in a situation, where I cant physically go there to claim the funds. Can this be done online?? Any help is highly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Nevin.

    Which company did you work for, if I may ask?

    By PF laws, employers are supposed to contribute 12% of the basic pay towards employee PF. 99% of the times, the employee and employer contribution is the same, i.e., 12% of basic. Employee can contribute more if s/he likes, minimum being 12% (of basic).

    Most employers have a intranet site that shows details of PF.

    PF amount is either deposited with the state government a/c or held in a trust. Check with your ex-employer. Withdrawal is not an easy process. You have to submit physical forms. Cannot be done online.

    Hi j4k,

    I worked for "AECOM" prevously. Its not an IT Company, but an Engineering design firm. Anyway, as you said, I had checked the intranet for the same but the local policies were not mentioned in it, as the intranet was also from US, so it was not much of use to me. At the time of leaving, I had asked the HR for the same, but that idiot explained it in a very vauge way, and I thought this can also be done online as most of the transactions are....

    Like you mentioned withdrawal is not an easy process, and I learned it the hard way, after I reached my home here in Kerala, and its practically impossible for me to go back to Delhi!!

    So, I understand the only way I can find out the employer contribution is to call them up?? I found some forms for claiming the fund, but I dont know if I should send that to my previous company, or to some govt offices??? Our democracy is not at all transperent!!!

    You must have been allotted a PF number. Now EPFO provides the service of checking your PF account online.
    As you have stated that you worked in Delhi you would need to contact the office of RPFC Delhi, duly validated by your previous employer. In case you had worked in NCR but not in Delhi, then the concerned RPFC office would be different.
