After subscribers face EPFO portal problems, withdrawal rules changed; how it impacts you
The EPFO circular said, "Considering the grievances raised by members, this stipulation (earlier decision) will be kept in abeyance so that offline claims will also be accepted in all cases." Earlier in February this year, the retirement fund body had made it mandatory to file online claims for provident fund withdrawals above Rs 10 lakh.
EPFO circular, issued on April 13, instructed all its field offices that claims received online will be sent online to employers for further verification, only after which the claims will be settled. Image source: PTI
