You can only transfer one account at a time . You need to fill form 13 for that. In case of any concerns you can contact PF office. Its always better to get the account transferred as this increases the benefits you get from PF. Transfer the one which has more amount in it first. Then after a gap of 6-12 months fill another form 13 for the second account or maybe you can simply claim the return for that amount.
After resigned/ leaving the organization, EMPLOYEE can withdraw his/her money/deducted amount (After 2 months of your last working day with employer) anytime or can transfer this with the new employer. Otherwise EPF account will be closed automatically for an Employee. It means no further amount shall be submitted by Employer into employees EPF account w.e.f. the very first day after resignation /leaving the organization from the EMPLOYEE.
Hope this helps

My only concern here is I am currently in Notice period and would leave this company after 2 months from now.
But since I have all my forms ready to initiate PF transfer from my old account to this account.
I want to make sure that this current account (which would soon be inactive) should not create any issues for this PF transfer.
1. Should I Transfer my old PF to this(soon to be inactive) account OR instead wait till I get a new PF from my new employer (employer C) and then transfer the previous 2 PFs (A and B) to it?
2. Also if an account has become inactive will the PF transfer not happen; although it was initiated when it the account was active?

That was very helpful input for me.. I would prefer waiting for new pF number then as per your suggestion
- Just for info - Can we transfer old PF to an account which is active right now but would become inoperative after some time;so will EPFO transfer PF amount to an account which is inactive?
- This might be a silly question.. but do you have any idea as to how long it take for transfer if both account at the same EPFO?

I worked in A company (15 July 2011 to 15 Sep 2014) and in B company (17 Sep 2014 to 30 Apr 2015). Currently I am not working anywhere. So i want to withdraw my pf amount. But when i checked UAN Portal I still have two PF accounts,having certain amounts in them. So what should I do?
How to get my PF from both accounts? I am helpless. Please suggest me ?
