Sometimes the authorities reject the PF claim without giving any cogent reason. As a result, account holders face financial difficulties. Of course, such complaints are often made to 'EPFO'.

PF money is useful for essential reasons like house construction, children's education, marriage ceremony, illness etc. In that case, if there are sufficient documents and reason, chances of rejection of PF are less. At the same time, it is important to know the rules while making a claim with PF, so that your claim is not rejected.

If you have applied for PF and are upset that it has been rejected, don't worry. 'EPFO' (Employees Provident Fund Organization) has issued guidelines last year to overcome such difficulties. Care has been taken to ensure that the account holders will not suffer.

What do the rules say?

As per 'EPFO' rules, no one's claim can be rejected for any reason. Also, any claim should be kept pending for no reason. If a claim is rejected again, the reason for rejection should be explained.

As per the EPFO ​​directives, if there are any deficiencies while claiming by any account holders, the authorities should inform them in time. So there will be no delay in filing the claim. If the claim is still rejected, verify all the claims and correct them. Accordingly, the claimant will be processed in time to receive the payment.

According to the guidelines, if there are any errors in the claim, they should be mentioned only once. PF account holders will not need to frequent the office. According to the PF department, each claim should be checked once and completed.

Complaints have come to 'EPFO' that officials are often rejecting claims without giving any reason. So members get into trouble. These things should be avoided.

As per the new directive, the field office should forward the canceled claim to the divisional office for review. At the same time, action should be taken to complete the claim process in time.
