Keeping fund in PF will increase your corpus on which one gets tax free compound interest.By withdrawal of amount one looses the power of compound interest.
I would strongly advice -no withdrawal of PF,obtain an UAN and keep accumulations in the fund for longest period of time possible.

The law requires you to transfer your PF from previous employer to the new one.
You can withdraw only if you are no longer working.
The current procedure has the concept of unique ID which means that your PF number will remain the same irrespective of whether you are changing your job.
If you do not have the unique number, then you need to go online to the PF portal and initiate the transfer.

It is very easy way to get the same transferred. Just fill the form 13 and give it to your present employer for necessary proceedings. Also, there is provision of getting pension for the person who has been regular contributor of PF at least 10 years may be it different companies also.
