Post-retirement - If you are above 55 years of age, you can claim the entire EPF corpus. However, if you have opted for early retirement, you are not allowed to claim the full value.
Before retirement - If you are of 54 years, you can claim up to 90% of your EPF corpus, only if you are retiring the next year.
In the case of unemployment - If you remain unemployed for over a month, you can claim up to 75% of your EPF corpus. However, when you start a job, you get required to transfer 25% of that amount to your EPF account. If you become unemployed for over two months, you become eligible to claim your entire EPF corpus.
Partial withdrawals are usually allowed only in the case of funding required for higher education, medical emergency or for constructing or purchase of a house property.
