New Delhi: Over four crore members of the retirement fund body EPFO can now withdraw funds from their EPF account for treatment of illness and purchasing equipment to deal with handicap without medical certificates. The Employees’ Provident Fund Scheme 1952 is amended to do away with the requirement of submission of various certificates for seeking advance for treatment of illness and purchasing equipment required in case of physical disabilities. Now, the subscribers can seek fund withdrawal from their EPF account on various grounds by using a composite form along with a self-declaration. At present, the EPFO subscribers can seek advance under Para 68-J of the EPF Scheme for their and their dependents’ treatment for illness. PTI
