EPFO revises instruction on Submission of claims through online mode in case of settlement amount is above Rs.10.00 lacs

Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) vide Aril 13, 2018 has revised the instruction issued on Submission of claims through online mode in case of settlement amount is above Rs.10.00 lacs.

Considering the grievances raised by members, this stipulation will be kept in abeyance so that offline claims will also be accepted in all cases. However, in view of the need to step up security, claims received online from claimants will be sent online to employers for further verification, only after which the claim will be settled. The employer should return the claim within 3 days to the EPFO office either accepting or rejecting the claim.
