Claiming Provident Fund will become easier now as employees can now directly submit forms to their respective regional office without having to seek employer’s signatures. Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation has also come out with new forms – 19UAN, 10CUAN and 31UAN
– for all employees whose Aadhaar number and bank details have been duly verified by the employer, using digital signature.
Aadhaar-seeded Universal Account Number (UAN) holders will, with immediate effect, no longer require employer attestation to make provident fund claims.
Employees whose details like Aadhaar Number and Bank Account Number have been seeded in their UAN and whose UAN have been activated, may submit claims in Form-19, Form-lOC and Form 31 directly to the Commissioner without attestation of their employers, in such form and manner as may be specified by the Central Provident Fund Commissioner for fast settlement of claims.
