The measures taken by Government for the quick disbursal of PF amount to workers are as follows:

  1.     Auto settlement of Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) claims was introduced by Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) in January, 2020.
  2.     Multi-location claim settlement facility was introduced in EPFO to provide the uninterrupted services to the EPF members at the time of any disaster like pandemic, floods, earthquake, etc when it may not be possible to process claims in such Disaster Affected office(s). This arrangement has helped in delivery of uninterrupted services to the EPF members and also helped in disaster proofing of the offices of EPFO.

The average time taken to process claim settlement year wise is as follows:-

Financial

Year

Average time taken to process claim (in days)
2019-20 11.5 days
2020-21 8.4 days
2021-22 (as on 06.12.2021) 7.3 days

 

As can be seen in the table above, the speed for settlement of claims has increased during  FY 2019-20 to FY 2021-22.
