PF Passbook: How to withdraw money from your PF account? Learn the step-by-step process. If you have been unemployed for 2 months or more, you can withdraw the entire amount from your PF account.

EPF Withdrawal: If you are a member of the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO), you can withdraw money from your Employee Provident Fund (EPF) account. According to EPF withdrawal rules, EPF account holders can withdraw a partial or full amount based on their eligibility. Generally, the entire EPF amount can be withdrawn when a member has been unemployed for two months or more. Additionally, EPFO members can also apply for partial withdrawals from their PF accounts for various reasons, including:

  • Self or child’s marriage
  • Medical emergencies
  • Buying a house
  • Repaying a home loan
  • House Renovation

Note that for most partial withdrawals, the member should be an EPF subscriber for a minimum of five or seven years. If you change jobs, the remaining balance in your EPF passbook will be automatically transferred to the new employer.

  1. First, make sure you have four details – Universal Account Number (UAN), member’s bank account number, ID proof, and a canceled check.
