2. The transfer of PF is not affected by your continuance/discontinuance of EPS. In deed from the PF contributed by your employer 8.33% goes to EPS maintained by the local PF Office and it has to continue to be so even after you have joined the EPF Trust. The Trust has control over only your PF accumulation and the EPS has to continue with EPFO . In the absence of EPS going to EPFO, the entire employer contribution also goes to your PF accumulation. Pl check this. Now they have to reverse the entry and apportion from the employer contribution 8.33% of the wages into EPS account and deposit it with EPFO and only the remaining amount can be adjusted/added to your PF accumulation.
3. The aforesaid circumstance does not permit withdrawal of accumulation. But you have to approach the local EPFO organisation and bring this anomalous position to their notice.
4. EPF accumulation can be transfered subject to the formalities in this regard. There is no transfer of EPS account as it has been standardised and you have a unique number generated during previous employment which can be continued.
