My name is Shyamala. I joined in a KPO job in june..and subsequently left that job in 2 weeks owing to personal reasons. I did not submit a formal resignation letter as my employer didn't ask for the same. I just mentioned I'm leaving to the HR orally and he just said he's terminating me from service. I didn't have a bank acct opened during this period & hence, I didn't receive a salary for these 2 weeks either. I've been unemployed ever since.
My query is:
I'm aware that the PF number alloted to someone is permanent - it cant be changed even when you move from 1 company to another. I'd signed in the Employee PF enrollment form during the 1st day there (formal induction procedures). Now what will be it's status? Will the HR cancel it, as I have left their organization? Will this PF number pose a threat to me and reveal my old employer, when I join another company later? I'm a fresher engineering graduate and I'm quite tensed regarding this situation.
I hope someone can resolve my query. Thanks in advance. :)

First of all you should have relieved from the company by formally submitting resignation letter. Though your personal reasons would have held up not going to office, you would have mailed either. A HR cannot accept any employee's resignation orally, coz he must be answerable to his boss.
You must be looking for some other job, which reveals clearly from your question. If your personal reasons are over, you might have reapplied to the same company.
Reasons apart, PF number is not permanent. It changes whenever you switch over to another company. You can either close the PF account if you are not employed for the next two months or you can transfer the PF account to the new company you have joined. Having not received salary for your tenure, your PF account would not been activated.

That was a precise answer. yeah, I'm searching for a job now.. I didn't submit any written letter because my boss/HR had made the decision of terminating me even before I could ask if a formal statement was required. And I'm not going back to that company ever again! So its alright even if they black-list my profile for all future references. It's good to hear that my PF account wouldn't have been activated... Many thanks for resolving my query.

My previous employer has not remitted the PF employee share & also the employer share from past 1 year (Oct 2011 to Oct 2012) to the department. The company is now closed. Even after several 7A issued by the department, the employer is not in a situation to pay the PF amount. It has already become 6 months of my resignation. Since the factory is closed & no officer is working over their, I had not been issued duly filled Form 19 & 10C along with 3A, Form 5 & 10. My question is since the employer has not remitted the amount as said above, can I apply for Claim of PF? If yes, what are the necessary steps I should follow to get the claim? Without remittance from the employer, will the PF office settle my account till the date of my resignation? Can any body help me in this issue?

Like Question no 2 and 3= wage cieling limit of Provident fund has been raised to Rs 15000 (wef 1 sep 2014)
Q4: An employer cannot force the employee to be a part of Provident fund if his basic salary +DA is more than Rs 15001 and until he has specified the same in their HR policy.
Q5: As per the new amendments took place on 1sep 2014, new employees who gets registered fro Provident fund. No amount gets deducted towards EPS(8.33%) and EPF(3.67%). Its total of 12% towards both employers and employees. And even an employee can now withdraw total of 24 % even if he has worked for the company from 0 months -9 years.
However, withdrawing PF before 5 years of service and that too of sum equal to or more than Rs 30,000 will attract tax. But if the employee submits form 15G/15 H along with his pan card, no tax will be deducted.
Q.7. Form no 13 R is now been replaced by new form called Form 11(N) in case the employee has got a UAN number for transferring PF from one company to another.
In addition, continous service in an employment is considered where in the employee has completed 240 working days in a year. though this applies to rule of calculating gratuity however its the same for other statoury benefits.
EPFO has no responsibility to send any annual statements to individuals. However, to check the PF balance, it is easier to go on to the PF website (www.epfindia.com) to check the balance.
Q 33. VPF is an account only meant for employees and not for employers. IF an employee feels to contribute any thing extra towards his savings which (8-20%) he can do so by opening VPF. But no employer can made contribution to such VPF and such is not mentioned in the PF Act 1952.
Hope this clarifies.

I left the company July'15 and I applied for my PF in Jan'16 by my left company but still I did not get any update and my pf amount.
When I contact to my previous company they said We forwarded your PF application to PF office but today 14 Apr I didn't get any PF amount.
I have also checked in PF site but site showing no records found.
Please guide what should I do?
14th April 2016 From India, Mumbai
Pls approach your PF office personally with your pf number.
Check whether they got your application or not.
If yes check whether they need any additional documents and provide them.
If no contact employer from PF office and ask for acknowledgement copy.
Threat them stating that you are going to complain that they are not submitting the claim without proper reason.
For added info reach me # email@example.com
