You can withdraw money from PF without UAN number, know how to apply
If you also want to withdraw advance, full or little money from provident fund (PF) but you do not have a UAN number, you can still withdraw your PF. For this, you have to fill a form which has to be submitted at the EPFO office. However, extracting PF in this manner may result in circling the EPFO office.
Paperwork will increase
To go to EPFO and extract PF, you have to fill the form. You will also get this form from the EPFO website or from your office. With this you will have to attach some documents. However, extracting such PFs will increase your paperwork slightly. When your paper and form EPFO checks and all is correct, then after 10 to 20 days PF will come to your account.
