EPF Form 10C

Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) is a scheme wherein both employee and employee make certain contributions towards EPF and EPS accounts. When you decide to change your job, you can either withdraw the pension amount or transfer it to the new one by submitting the EPS Scheme Certificate. This certificate shows the service details of the employee and the details of the family members who are eligible to claim a pension in case of the death of the member. However, the accumulated pension can be withdrawn by the members by using Form 10C after 180 days of continuous service and before completion of 10 years of the service period.
