A social security system of Provident Fund was developed to encourage employees to save and to benefit them in retirement. PF contributions are made monthly by both the employer and employee. Except in certain circumstances, an employee can only withdraw his or her PF contributions during the period of employment.

Employers who are PF registered are required to make PF returns on a monthly basis. Each month's PF returns must be filed by the 25th. In this section, we'll go over the various forms used to file PF returns. Using the Unified site, employers may conveniently file the PF return.

Form 2

Under the Flagship scheme of the Employment Provident Fund and the Employment Family Pension Scheme, Form 2 is filed as a declaration and nomination. If you're joining a company, you must fill out Form 2. With Form 5, you must submit this form. Form 2 is divided into two halves. - Part A and Part B

Part A : If the account holder passes away, Form 2 Part A asks for the names of the beneficiaries who will receive the EPF balance. Here you must include the following information:

  • Subscriber's name and address
