As per EPFO circular dated 20th September 2017, the EPFO has ordered the introduction of Composite Declaration Form (F-11) by replacing the existing New Form-11. The introduction of Composite Declaration Form (F-11) is ordered with immediate effect by replacing the existing New Form-11. The Composite Declaration Form will also replace Form No. 13 in all cases of auto transfer vide order No. Manual/Amendment/2011/13326 dated 20th September 2017. As per this order, in such case where the earlier UAN was Aadhaar seeded and verified, the declaration by the employer in Form-11 for transfer request made by the employee will trigger an auto transfer process which will transfer the accumulations against his previous PF ID to the New PF ID. Hence Form No 13 will not be required to be submitted in such cases going forward. In case (a) the earlier UAN was not seeded with Aadhaar or (b) UAN was Aadhaar seeded but not verified or (c) EPF transfer from or to an exempted establishment, then the member needs to apply for transfer in Form-13 as per the existing procedure for physical transfer. EPFO has emphasised that any failure to furnish Aadhaar will lead to difficulty in transferring of old accumulation into new account and therefore all employers are advised to ensure that the Aadhaar number of transferee is filled in the EPFO portal.
