What is PF Withdrawal?
When you retire or leave your job, you are usually entitled to withdraw your accumulated PF balance. The EPFO requires you to submit a claim form and other documents to process your request.You can choose to receive your PF withdrawal as a lump sum or in the form of a monthly pension.
If you are below the age of 58, you must withdraw your entire PF balance. If you are 58 years old or older, you can choose to either withdraw your entire balance or keep it invested with the EPFO to receive a monthly pension.
The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) allows its members to make partial withdrawals from their provident fund (PF) account under certain circumstances. These include situations such as marriage, children’s education, medical emergencies etc.
To make a partial withdrawal from your PF account, you will need to submit a claim form along with supporting documents to the EPFO. Once your claim is approved, the EPFO will credit the amount into your bank account within 10 days.
The maximum amount that you can withdrawn depends on the reason for which you are making the withdrawal. For example, if you are making a withdrawal for medical reasons, then you can withdrawn up to 60% of your accumulated PF balance.
However, if you are making a withdrawal for purposes such as buying a house or plot of land, then the maximum amount that you can withdrawn is 36 times your basic monthly salary.

How to Check the Status of Your PF Withdrawal Application
If you have applied for PF withdrawal and are wondering about the status of your application, there are a few things that you can do in order to check on its progress. The first thing that you should do is contact your employer. They will be able to tell you whether or not your application has been received and processed. If they have not received it, they may be able to give you some advice on how to proceed.
