Business Bureau,

WITH a view to make its services available to its stakeholders in an efficient and transparent manner, EPFO introduced Universal Account Number (UAN). Subscribers, who seed Aadhar and bank account details, to their UAN have the facility to submit claim forms directly to EPFO without the attestation of employers by preferring claims in
Forms No 19 (UAN), 10C (UAN) and 31 (UAN).


To add further convenience, these now have been further simplified and replaced with single page composite claim form (Aadhar). The new composite claim form (Aadhar), can be submitted without the attestation of employers. For subscribers who are yet to seed Aadhar and bank details with their UAN also new composite claim form (non-Aadhar), can be submitted with the attestation of employers. Self-certification replaces various certificates prescribed at present.


Submission of composite claim form (Aadhar), composite claim form (non-Aadhar) duly signed by the EPF subscriber will be construed as self-certification’ for the above said partial withdrawals, for which no document would be required to be submitted to the EPFO office, informs a press release.
