At present, subscribers submit their claims regarding provident fund withdrawals manually through their present or former employers. The attestation of the forms was mandatory for the purpose.

This facility will be available to all those subscribers whose Universal (or portable PF) Account Number (UAN) is activated and seeded with the KYC details like bank account and Aadhaar number.

However, claims will be submitted manually by subscribers directly to the respective provident fund commissioners.

Subscribers filing their claims directly without employers' attestation would have to use new forms 19 UAN, l0-C UAN and 31 UAN.  These new forms are of half a page size compared to two to three pages applications used at present for withdrawal of PF.
