For Full Withdrawl, it has done away with two separate forms for claiming EPF(Form 19) and EPS (Form 10C). So now one form can be used which will withdraw from both EPF and EPS. We think it is a simple but excellent move.

There are two versions of the form Aadhar based form and Non-Aadhar based Forms.

Aadhar Based Full Withdrawal Forms: These forms are applicable in cases where employee’s Aadhaar Number and Bank Accounts details are available on UAN Portal and UAN has been activated. So one can withdraw by submitting these forms directly to EPFO without the attestation of the Employer. These forms were earlier called as UAN-Based Forms.

Non-Aadhar Based Full Withdrawal Forms: These forms can be used when Aadhar has not been attached with UAN. So one needs to get attestation of the employer and then employer will submit Full Withdrawal form to EPFO. But even in these forms, one need to provide the Aadhaar number as shown in the image below.

New Partial Withdrawl Form: Earlier one had to submit Form 31, called as EPF Withdrawal or EPF Advance Form, through the Employer for partial withdrawal from EPF after putting in at least 5 years of service for Marriage / Education, Treatment, Purchase or construction of Dwelling house.  Form31 of EPF  for partial withdrawal was 3-4 pages long and required Proof and revenue stamp.  EPFO has removed submission of documents and made it 1 page. So now it is just like full withdrawal form.
