Dear Friends

We can easily get pur PF transfer from one company to another through Form - 13.
But i would like to share one important aspect of PF i.e any employee can take loan against PF. This is possible only when there is continuation of PF for seven years.

Therefore friends its better to transfer the PF from one to another company.

Hi Everyone,

I have filled the Form 13 for PF Transfer. As my current company requested other Forms including Form 3A, i have obtained the same from previous employer.

But when i verified the Form 3A, my father's name was mentioned wrongly but all other details are correct.

I heard that PF office will looks whether all details like Name, Fathers Name, EPF NO. Amount contributed, Signature etc.. would be verified. Will it get transfer with the wrong Form 3A if i proceed.

Can someone help me. I dont know what is the next step should i need to do in this case.

Any clarification is really appreciated

Hi, You just need to fill up a Form 13 and send it to your previous employer. They will transfer it to your existing PF account. The Form 13 will have all the details. Regards, Roopa

I am concerned about my PF transfer. Earlier I was employed in bangalore. I moved from one company to other in Oct 2007 in bangalore itself. But my new employer did not initiate the PF transfer process for the first 6-7 months as the HR person was not aware of the process(he was super dumb). Then later we pushed him to initiate the process, he took the forms from the whole lot of us and submitted it. But its been over 2 years now and it's still not transferred and I have now left that company also. I am going to join a new company in Mumbai. Now that I will have 3 PF accounts, will that be a problem? Can I withdraw the PF from both these organisations now?
PLease advise.

Your new Company HR Department can fill up Form 13 (APPLICATION FOR TRANSFER OF EPF ACCOUNT) and send it to concerned PF authorities of your region. PF authorites will confirm the particular of previous employment from previous Employer and transfer the previous account to your new account. It will take two to three months time.

PF transfer is very simple

The Form 13 Should fill and take present employer signature and submit through present employer.

should ensure the following documents :
1. your previous employer code no. & your PF No.
2. PF Regional Office correct address
3. break in particulars of your previous employment

if you not submit your break in service PF authorities return your Fomr-13 to your previous employer
So you will obtained break in service particulars
