New EPF withdrawal Rules 2019…

As I said above, Now it Has new clause 68 HH along with clause 68 H.

The new clause 68 HH refers like below.

68HH. Non-refundable advance to a member in case of continuous unemployment for a period of not less than one month.- The Commissioner or, where so authorised by the Commissioner, any other officer subordinate to him, may permit a member, on ceasing to be an employee in any factory or establishment to which the Act applies, a non-refundable advance up to seventy-five percent of the amount standing to his credit in the Fund, if he has not been employed in any factory or other establishments for a continuous period of not less than one month immediately preceding the date on which he makes an application for such non-refundable

From the above notification, we can arrive at the judgment of below-mentioned points.

#  Unemployed for more than a month can withdraw 75% of Non-Refundable EPF corpus accumulated.

# You can not refund the amount withdrawn from EPF to EPFO. So, act wisely before withdrawing money.

# Here one month period means it is from the date of an application for such non-refundable advance is applied for.

#  The person is part of EPF and eligible to pension benefits even after this withdrawal.

Do Keep a note of the point also that, along with newly inserted clause 68H H, the earlier para 69 (2) that allows 100% withdrawal after two months of continuous unemployment is still in effect.  Women can withdraw 100% of the corpus for their marriage at the time of resigning. There is no need to wait for two months for women.

Hence, it is clear that if a person is unemployed for more than a month, then he can withdraw 75% of non-refundable advance from EPF corpus accumulated and still continue to be the member of EPF along with EPS(employee pension) benefits.

However, the earlier part of 100% of withdrawal is still in force.

In case of the person is unemployed for more than two months is also still in force.

Also, Resigned women employees can withdraw 100% corpus to get married at the time of without waiting for two months.
