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
