Here’s how to withdraw money from your EPF account online
  • Employee’s provident fund (EPF) is a mandatory fund for the Indian workforce.
  • Both the employee and the employer contribute to the fund.
  • While the EPF can be withdrawn in full at retirement, employees can also withdraw prematurely in certain circumstances.
If you are looking to withdraw money online from your employee’s provident fund (EPF) account, you can do it through the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) portal. Employees' Provident Fund is mandatory for all employed in the Indian workforce and it is deducted from an employee's salary as well as the employer contributes to it.

The employee contributes 12% of his basic salary to EPF and a similar contribution is made from the employer to the EPF fund. The funds are saved in the EPF account of the employee and interest is also added to it. This helps the employee get savings, pension and insurance. While the entire amount of the EPF can be withdrawn at retirement, premature withdrawals are also possible online through the EPFO portal. Here’s how you can do it.
