EPFO/PF Claim Settlement Days

EPFO/PF Claim Withdrawal can take anywhere from 5 working days to 20 working days. The general timeline for settling a PF Claim is 20 working days after submission of the claim online in the EPFO UAN Portal. As of late EPFO has improved its claim settlement timelines to 3 days in some of the PF Regional offices.

Some of the PF Claim withdrawals can take only 4 days (This happens if all the information is correct on the UAN Profile)
