EPF Online Transfer Claim Portal (OTCP) -Transferring is now online !!!

Recently EPFO (Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation) started online transfer of your old employer EPF account in new EPF employer account online. I hope with this initiative lot of hurdles of the EPF members will get resolved.  Let see the procedure and guidelines of this account transfer.

Latest News-

The first step before proceeding to apply for online transfer is, you must have an online registered account on EPFO site. To do registrations follow the process provided “HERE“. Once your account is registered then you need to apply for transfer of account by first visiting the Online Transfer Claim Portal (OTCP) portal. For detailed instruction of how you can apply for transfer visit “HERE” where they provided the detailed instruction of applying.

EPF Online Transfer Claim Portal

Few points you must know before proceeding this online apply.

  • You must be a registered member of the EPFO portal before proceeding.
  • Both your previous employer as well as present employer must be available on EPFO database.
  • The employer must register for the digital signature process of EPFO.
  • You can check your eligibility for transfer by visit OTCP site “Here“.
  • You can’t edit any of your personal details as well as the details like joining or exit dates.
  • But suppose if you found any discrepancy in the details then you can do editing so by clicking the tab called “The following information in incorrect”. Once you do the editing, take the printout of the pdf form. Self attests the same you need to submit it to the EPFO office through your current employer.
  • You can submit for transfer once these rectifications are done properly.
  • You can change your DOB (date of birth) also but the restriction of attempting to change is only about 3 times.
  • If both your previous as well as current employer registered digital signatures with EPFO then you can submit this claim form either with previous or current employer for employer attestation.
  • Even if your previous employer registered with EPFO then too you can submit form with either of them.
  • If your previous employer not registered then also you can submit with either of them but it will take time to transfer as the process of verification data will be done.
  • You can submit online transfer only in case your previous employer registered with EPFO for digital signature.
  • The same way your present employer registration also mandatory for online transfer.
  • Once online submission is done, you need to take the printout of the same and submit it with employer with self attestation.
  • You have the option to choose for submitting your form for attestation either with previous or current employer.
  • Within 15 days of online submission you need to submit claim form with your employer.
  • If any rejection from the employer then it will be after 15 days only.
  • You can view the status of claim online also.
  • Below are the few reasons for rejecting your claim.
  1. The claim already submitted previously and EPFO not yet rejected it.
  2. You have not submitted the signed online claim transfer form with your employer within stipulated 15 days period.
  3. Records mismatch.
  4. Signature mismatch.

    Hi ,

    I was working for an IT company for 3 years and I obviously had a pf account.
    After my MBA when my new employer asked me to get the UAN for my PF account for transferring the PF account.
    At the time of verification I got message that there is date of birth mismatch.
    I am worried if at the time of my final withdrawal it will create a problem.

    How can I solve this problem ?

    Regards,
    Srijeet

      • ViswaViswa says

        Thanks a lot Basavaraj :)

        I already checked with them, and they said that they already settled my previous PF balance to new PF account. However, am checking in my PF passbook, its not showing any transactions. Simply it saying “Already settled”. So, i want to know how to see my present employer PF account passbook. Because whenever i login into EPFO member portal through my UAN its showing only my previous PF account passbook.

        Kindly adivce me, how to see my present PF account passbook and how to add my present PF account into my already existing UAN login.

        Please, required your help on this.

    Hi Basavaraj,

    I am applying for PF transfer online , when I was filling DETAILS OF PREVIOUS ACCOUNT (WHICH IS TO BE TRANSFERRED), I came to know date of joining and date of leaving are same. I changed them hitting button “following information is incorrect” after filling all the details when I hit preview button then I am getting “Error: Data inconsistent. Please fill up the form again”

    Please do let me know what to do now?

    Thanks.

    • Anshul GoyalAnshul Goyal says

      You have to get the information corrected first by generating the correction letter on the same screen and submitting it to the corresponding employer. When this information gets corrected in EPFO office and visible on the screen you are referring to, only then you would be allow to fill the form completely.

    2. Can I apply for a fresh PRAN no. in second job.
    please clarify, Thanks.

        How will I know that the Form 13 is submitted by the present employer, I am told that it is submitted, and how will I know the previous employer received it, they say, they do not have it. Who is correct and who is wrong, I am not sure.

        I tried on-line, it failed. We will forget the procedure error, time being. # you may help me who to contact for this kind of error.

        The other two claims are not visible and when I try to submit a new request for these two claims it shows the message “The attempted Request for Transfer of Account already exists on the system. Click here to view the status of your existing request”.

        Regards
        Manish

    Hi,
    I have applied pf transfer online, my previous employer uploaded digital signature also, even then company saying, we unable to approve online application…
    can you please suggest what needs to be done.

    Thanks in advance

      • ravinderravinder says

        Hi,

        Thanks for your reply..!

        They are saying that, till now we did not done online., so we can’t do it. They are asking to visit directly with transfer form..

        What needs to be done.

        • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

          Ravinder-They are just not ready to upgrade their knowledge. It is nowhere written that if the organization never done anything online then they must do it offline. They have to adapt to changes. Let them do. You no need to visit.

          • ravinderravinder says

            Hi Basavaraj,
            Thank you!!

            I am little worried about the expiration date of my PF Transfer application. If it expires again I have to apply for it. Is it so..?

            If they don’t do.. then I have to wait.. till they accept.. :(

            Previously, I submitted hard copy at my present employer, they couriered the same to previous employer., they misplaced those documents., after that again I applied online. Now this is the scene.

            Thanks,
            Ravinder

    Hi Sir,

    It was a very useful post. Need your help in my case. I am trying to do a Online transfer of my previous PF account,i found my date of exit is being shown as wrong. So i have filled form 5/10 and sent it to my previous employer and after few days i recieved a message saying records updated and exact amount is reflecting in my pf account. Now i have again tried to raise a transfer online,but the date of Exit is still the same (It is wrong). Kindly suggest how can i get it rectified.Or can i go a head and raise a transfer claim since my account balance is accurate.

    note:i have verified my EPF passbook in UAN portal and there also the balance is accurate but the Date of Exit is worngly updated.

    Kindly help.

    Dear Shri Basavaraj

    I am in the process of transferring my PF and FPS contribution from previous to new employer through online portal.
    my questions are 1) after transfer will my previous FPS(pension) contribution also get displayed in passbook just like PF amount.
    2)during my earlier job change I opted for receiving scheme certificate for FPS contribution by filling form 10-C.
    now a days whether this system changed ? or what is difference between getting scheme certi and transferring FPS contribution?

    Thanks in advance.

    I had applied for online transfer of my PF account, with the current employer selected for attestation. I submitted the claim form to my current employer and was approved by current employer. However, the previous employer says that submitting the claim form to the previous employer is mandatory without which the verification process by previous employer will not be done. Is it mandatory to send the claim form to previous employer also, eventhough the option for attestation is through present employer?

  64. NagappaNagappa says

      I had a similar problem – but it turned out that the PF account moved from Chennai to Tambaram. But both account numbers remained valid in other places(eg: transfer claim status). So check with your employer if such a thing happened or not.

    Hi Basavaraj,

    I joined a new company in March 2013. My previous organization used to maintain the PF account through a trust. Post joining the new company I applied for PF transfer by submitting the relevant form in 2013 itself. When I checked with my old employer in 2014 they said they have sent the cheque to the RPF Hyderabad where my current organization maintains the PF on June 2014 and it got encashed also. When I checked my current HR they said that Hyd PF office has said that the money has been transferred to my current PF account. However when I am downloading my passbook using the UAN number it is not showing that amount it is only showing the current employers contribution. Can you kindly advise next steps.

    HI Basavaraj,

    Recently i transferred my PF account through online initiated through previous employer.
    I have doubt regarding the amount which is diverted to Pension Fund. by doing PF account transfer is the EPS amount also get transferred? if not can you please provide some details on how to withdraw the EPS amount.

      • KKKK says

        This is true only if PF and EPS account are maintained by PF. if your company has a trust which maintains PF and the EPS is maintained by PF office, you need to check if both have transferred. Ideally the company should send a request to the PF office to transfer EPS as well but most of the time, things are lost in between. I had similar problem where i worked for Infosys for 2 years and 3 years after i left infy, my EPS was still not transferred from Bommasandra PF office to KRPuram PF office

  118. RahulRahul says

    Hi Basu,

    I have received SMS on my registered mobile like:
    MemberID: BGBNGxxxxxxx PF Claim ID: BNG1411xxxxxx Settled Amount: Rs XXXXX.00 Sent to A/c No.:1109944xxxx (IFSC code: SBIN000xxxx)

    but the account number mentioned here is not mine. So just wanted to understand, what this account number means here?
    and also the settled amount is somehow less say almost 6000/- than actual. I can say because earlier downloaded the epf passbook for previous employer.
    So will it be any deduction while transfer ?

    Kindly help me with your answer on ‘account number’ and the ‘less amount’.
    Thank you !

    • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

      Rahul-Account number may not belong to you as it may be internal transfer. But regarding difference in amount, there is no charges involved for transfer. So either you can contact your old employer or regional EPF.

    Hi

    I have initiated OTCP for my 3 below mentioned PF account to my 4508 PF account number:
    1)ending with 33580
    2) ending with 598
    3) ending with 2667
    4) ending with 4508 from this account i wish to withdraw my amount for all

    I have got messages”Your claim has been settled and credited to new account.message,

    but as its mentioned on Forum, amount would reflect in next Financial.
    I have already submitted withdrawal form, does this mean i will have to wait until next financial for withdrawal of rest of the am0unt which is still not reflecting.?

    Have a made a blunder :(

    Thanks
    Sangeeta

    • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

      Sangeeta-First check which claim transfer approved. Then check for reason if not approved. Do rectify those errors and submit once again. From your comment it is not clear whether all approved or only one account approved.

    Recently I have transferred my previous employer PF account balance to my current employer PF account. As per the EPFO’s new member portal, I can able to download the transaction details on my current PF account. On which the transfer was carried out on two heads like “Employee share” and “Employer share”, however I have found one more head as “Diverted to Pension fund” on that head my current employer is putting the money where as from transferred amount it shows as “0”. Is it correct?

  127. MandarMandar says

    Hi Basavaraj,

    Thanks for the valuable info.

    I would like to transfer my old PF account to current active account. The problem is that the old account is more than three years old. So is there any separate procedure to follow for online transfer of money?

    Also I would like to know:
    The time-frame by which the money gets transferred (when both the employers have valid digital signatures and me being eligible for the online transfer process).
    The day I start getting interests on my PF money, the rate of interest and time-period of interest calculation (e.g.: quarterly, annually)

    Thanks & Regards,
    Mandar

    Dear Sir,

    i made a claim through Online Transfer Claim Portal. once submitted the claim in online, taken print out of the same and signed it and sent to my previous employer for approval.

    in View status of Transfer claim , i can see as
    21-Oct-2014 Claim Form Submitted
    29-Oct-2014 Claim Form approved by Previous employer,

    Once claim form approved by previous employer it generated one new PDF from.

    Now my doubt is, Is i need to take print out of the newly generated form and sent it to PF office? or need to submit it to my Present employer?

    one thing need to mention here is… My Present employer is not under digital signature list or some thing like that under EPFO. only my previous employer was. So i submitted/initiated through previous employer.

    Please let me know the future actions need to be taken from my side if any?

  129. SantoshSantosh says

    xx Sep 2014 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer

    There are two printable forms generated ,
    Ro.SRO
    APPD(Final PDF)

    The two forms are addressed to PF commissioner and it shows that member need to sign the form and submit to previous establishment. the final pdf needs previous establibshment signature and seal.

    My question is do the previous establibshment has to submit the form13 manually to the pf office or pf office will reach previous establishment to get the approved form?

    My previous establishment is taking long time for approval and i need to do lot of follow ups. i’m feeling like i did wrong by choosing previous establishment. :(

        submitted to the Previous Establishment.

        I haven’t send the signed form till date to my previous employer, but my previous employer had approved the form13. after that the final pdf form is generated.

        sorry i am not getting your point can you let me know which form i have to submit to current employer.

My previous employer haven’t asked any signature from me for final pdf also.My previous employer prendenting like they dont know any process. after i pressuried and explained the process only they had aprroved it. so kindly explain me what i have to do now.

        • AnithaAnitha says

          The status changed for me in portal as,

          Current Status :Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.

          So i think there is no need to submit any forms to past or current employer.

    Hi,

    I have submitted request for Online EPF Transfer 20days back. I could not submit the signed Form13 to my previous employer yet. But I have received the following message as status on my transfer:

    21 Aug 2014 Claim Form Submitted .
    22 Aug 2014 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .
    Current Status :Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.

    Do I still need to submit the hard copy of Form13 to my previous employer or it is already taken care of.

    Hi,
    Initiated the online EPF Tansfer; the current status as per website is as follows –
    09 Aug 2014 Claim Form Submitted .
    18 Aug 2014 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .
    22 Aug 2014 Claim Form Approved by Present Employer .

    Current Status :Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.

    How long does it usually take before the next step in EPF transfer process? How long before I need to make any inquiry/raise grievance etc.?

      • GauravGaurav says

        Hi,
        The claim status has now changed to
        Current Status :Account Details received in EPFO IN office and under process.

        I raised a grievance online through the EPFO portal asking for time it will take for transfer to complete.
        However the reply I received was –
        It is informed that your grievance is being treated as non-actionable due to the following reason(s):
        It is informed that no claim has been received in this office. Kindly contact your previous employer.

        However the OTCP says the claim is already approved by previous employer on 18-Aug-2014. Can’t understand what’s happening ..

    Hi Basavaraj,

    I have submitted Form13 in otcp to my prev employer. i have received sms with contact person and mobile number of previous employer. when i contacted her, she is saying only back office will receive the mail and they will fwd the mail to her for attestation. i have mailed back office people also, still there is no clue for 2 days who had received it.the mail is triggered for me with claim id.

    is there will be any chance the mail wont be triggered to my employer?in that case what i can do?

    Regards,
    Dinesh

  158. DineshDinesh says

    Hi Basavaraj,

    I need to self transfer PF through OTCP portal. I am going to select Previous Employer for attestation. I checked the claim transfer eligibility. Both prav and present employer has valid registered Digital Signature Certificate on the portal. After claim submission, If the Form13 PDF is generated whether i should take the printout , sign it and then send it to prev employer or the portal itself will automatically challenge the previous employer for attestation. If i had to take the printout how to upload it again. i can’t see the upload option in the epf transfer step by step instruction document. Just I am gearing myself up for it before intiating the process.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Dinesh

    Hi Basavraj,

    May i know if some thing more to be done by member when his/her form is approved by previous employer.

    Actually last week i had applied for Transfer through previous employer and now i got the message that it got approved. So, i just want to know that something else is to be done from my side. Or i have to wait now.

  160. AshishAshish says

    Hello basavraj,

    I just read from a blog that it is possible to withdraw the EPD amount before 10 years of service. and if possible, then how these 10 years will be counted. I have completed 8 years of my service and in my fourth company. So will the counting start from my day 1 in service or from the first day in my current organisation.

    Regards.

  161. ManojManoj says

    Hi Basava,

    I have a query on eligibility of pension under FPF.

    I left company#1 at Delhi on 16-02-2009 and joined company#2 at Hyderabad on 17-02-2009. Effective 01-01-2011 company #2 transferred all the employees with a new company (company#3) and maintained PF part under own trust and FPF under RPF Delhi.

    My PF from company #1 not yet transferred and PF from company#2 transferred to company#3 on 01-08-2014.

    To eligible for pension should I transfer the PF from company#1 to company#2 and then company#2 to company#3 or I can still eligible even if I transfer the amount form company#1 to company#3 directly. Then there will be gap period between two company.

    I heard that continous 10 years contribution to FPF required to eligible for pension. please help… Thanks Manoj

    • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

      Manoj-Total service mentioned as EPS contribution service without break. So if the same account continues from employer 1 to 3 then you can do so for transferring. But what is the status of your account with employer 1?

      • ManojManoj says

        Hi, as I mentioned in my original query the amount in my employer 1 not yet transferred. The transfer request rejected once and I am working again to get it transferred.

        I have three diffrent accounts under three different employer. I think 10 years of continuous contribution means contributing to pension fund for cont.. 10 year irrespective of number of accounts, please clarify?

        The other question I had about transferring the PF balance and Pension Fund of employer1 to employer 2 first then to employer 3 or can I transfer directly to employer 3 (will this be counted as discontiuation of service).

        Thanks
        Manoj

        • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

          Manoj-If same account transferred from previous employer to current employer without any break up then it is called continues employment. So if you have different account but in your own name, still treated as different period of employment.

          • ManojManoj says

            Hi Basavaraj,

            Thanks for your valued time. If understood your answer correctly, I am not eligible for pension as per above case. Then what will happen to the contribution of my employer 1 & 2 to the pension fund. Do I mean I will get that as withdrawal after my service if I don’t withdraw before that and will that withdrawal will be with interest.

            Regards’
            Manoj

        Hi
        I am also facing the same issue. I applied for a PF account transfer from my previous company to my current company using form 13. Today I got a message saying Amount sent to A/c No:xxxx (IFSC code: xxx) . The bank account no does not belong to me and and I never requested for a withdrawal in the first place. What could be the issue?

          • Venkata SubramaniamVenkata Subramaniam says

            I received a similar message and I’m not sure what’s happening.

            The efp portal has my current status as – Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office, and the claim status check tells me amount has been settled, and the sms reads that the money has been transferred to A/c No:xxxx (IFSC code: xxx) , which infact is not mine.

            Have any of the others in the same situation got the money finally getting transferred??

    Dear Basav,

    I worked with an organization till May 2014. On 2nd June ’14, I had joined another organization. My previous organization has issued me the UAN No. I had already submitted application for transfer of PF to my present employer. How or Where can I register or link the UAN No. (received from previous employer) to my present employer.

    Also another point is, the PF contributions done by my previous employer (Apr 2013 – May 2014 – 14 months) should be 14 entries. But the EPF passbook which I downloaded as on 18th Aug. 2014 shows only 11 entries (i.e. till Feb. 2014 only). As I am from HR dept. I pretty well know that PF contributions has been deposited by my previous employer, but the EPF portal is displaying only 11 entries.

    Kindly guide.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I have initiated PF transfer many times. Every time its rejected with a message

    “The reason of rejection is not available in database. You may please contact RO/SRO BOMMASANDRA for further details”

    I even tried to initiate online transfer claim, where i found that current employer has given a wrong joining date which is 21-05-2011, where as I joined 10-sep-2014.
    is this the reason why transfer being rejected?

    how to proceed.

    Thanks,

    • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

    Hi Basavaraj,

    I had applied for PF transfer from my first Org to 2nd organization last year, I also got confirmation from PF office(through a grievance) that my PF is received from my previous organization and they are updating it into my account. But my E-Passbook is not getting updated after march and it is not showing the amount transferred.
    Now I have again changed the Organization. My Question is, should I wait for sometime for my E-passbook to get updated to reflect the transferred amount before applying for transfer again? Or I can apply for online transfer as the amount will be already there in my account as of today.

    Regards,
    Arpit Jindal

    Hi Basavaraj,
    You are doing a great job in helping people like us who are not able to get any help from EPFO. Thank you for that.

    I have a situation , where my online claim was approved by my previous employer and current employer. I have applied through my current employer (exempted category). But the application was rejected by EPFO without any specific reason as it says “the rejection reason not known , not there in database”. I had also raised an Grievance which was simply closed by EPFO without any specific explanation.
    What should be my next course of action?

    Thank you and God bless you.

      Paresh-Sadly this is the typical replies of Government officials. Why can’t you write them stating the reasons and warning them that if they not budge then you can use RTI or bring them to court? Update the same what action you are going to take and end result. Because it is learning for me and other readers too.

  180. Avinash SAvinash S says

    THats very useful information, thanks Basavaraj! So does OTCP imply transfer of money from PF accounts of previous company to present company or is it transfer of PF accounts please? I am a bit confused here & your answer would be helpful. Also, if its the latter, is there a way to transfer money from previous PF a/c to the present one please? Thanks in advance! :)

    • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

      Avinash-Why confusion? This is used to transfer your old employer account to your current employer account. I am unable to understand what do you mean by transfer of PF account. Is it about EPF or PPF?

  181. ELamELam says

    Hi Basu
    May be you can stream line and add this to your content. I have gone through the entire process myself as I shifted company recently.
    I have applied for PF transfer through online. As recommended I signed the form and sent it to previous employer (Sending the form directly to previous employer will expedite the process). So during the entire process we just need to apply online and sign n send the form to employer. that’s the only action from us. In my case both the employer are unexempted and they have digital signatures. After my previous employer received the hard copy, he accepted my request online and forwarded it to the EPF office. After that we can check the status getting changed at regular interval.
    Finally we will get a message that the amount is transferred to the new account and the process stops here.
    I have applied on march and amount gets transferred in June, so basically the entire process takes about 3 months.
    I was not able to get the account statement of new PF account so I wasn’t able to check whether the amount is actually transffered :P. Anyhow i ll get to know about it in the future.

    when she uses her pf code to check the status.it shows – NO RECORD FOUND

    its the correct code.she can login to the member portal sucessfully.

However when I check the balance in online portal, it is only showing me the current employers EPFO details. How can I check the previous employer’s (that is transferred now) EPFO amount and details?

    i was working with my previous employer till 2002 for about 30 years, i want to ask that if i want to apply for eps from the previous employer, do i have to transfer the pension account from previous employer to new employer??
    or can i submit the eps form to the previous employer seperately.

    THanks, hope to see your reply soon sir.

    hi Basavaraj,

    I have made my pf transfer online and it is done successfully. But there was difference in amounts of balance present in previous account and the amount credited to new account. When checked for this they said the difference in amount is for EPS.

    1, How I can transfer EPS?
    2. Can I withdraw EPS separetely while my EPF is transferred.?

    thank you,
    gautham

    • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

      Gautham-EPS stands for employee pension scheme, some percentage of your employer contribution will be towards that. But as you transferred from old to new, then benefits will carry forward.

    Hi Basavaraj Tonagatti,

    My sincere wishes to you for writing the this article and giving timely responses to the people. I don’t understand individuals like you are able to clarify the doubts in a timely manner but as large organization EPFO doesn’t even have a channel to clarify the doubts.

    Now coming to my doubt, I had applied for PF transfer through my previous employer on 7th May 2014 and it got approved by them on 19th. I don’t know what should I do know. And how do I know whether the transfer is completed or not ? Please clarify.. is there any way how to check the final status. ? even FAQs and guidelines issued by EPFO are not clear on this I think.. If you have an EPFO material on steps to be taken by member after approval of online transfer please share..

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I was trying to fill the OTC for transfering my PF account. But while checking the eligibility following message was displayed “Only the Previous Establishment PYKRP0019214000 have a valid registered Digital Signature Certificate on the Transfer Claims portal. Thus this claim can be submitted on the portal through your previous establishment. ”

    But on filling the tranfer form, i am unable to fill the following field of previuos employer details
    1.Fathers Name
    2.Date of joining
    3.Date of leaving

    Fathers name and date of joining of the present enmployer.
    Can any one tell me how to proceed further

    • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

      Swetha-The reason of getting message is, I think your current employer not registered for digital signature certificate. Second thing is, why can’t you try once and let us know the status. This error may be due to sometime technical.

      • SwethaSwetha says

        I have tried many times with different browsers (IE, Mozilla, Chrome). I have tried from different systems as well. But i am unable to fill these fields. Please assist me to do the same.

        If one of the employer alone have a valid registration , cant we applu online for PF transfer?

        In OCTP, FAQ session it is mentioned like the online transfer can be initiated even if one of the employer is registered.

        • SwethaSwetha says

    Hi,
    Good to read the process here.
    I initiated the online process on 10th dec 2013 and the forma got approved from my previous employer on 11th dec 2013.
    But post this update, till date there is no update or progress on this.
    Can you tell me if something has to be done from my side here?

    Current status:
    10 Dec 2013 Claim Form Submitted .
    11 Dec 2013 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .

      • Dhawal ChauhanDhawal Chauhan says

        Hi,
        I am not aware of the further process. I was assuming it to go on automatically.
        I will surely get in touch with the current employer.

        Do you know what steps will follow now? Is the current employer supposed to take it forward or i am supposed to take printout of approved from and submit to the current employer?

        Thanks in advance.

  195. TusharTushar says

    There is a Ro-SRO form which i filled signed and submitted to my present employer.

    Hi,
    In my case, both present and previous employers have approved the claim. The current status says
    Current Status :Claim Form 13 for Transfer to New Account Number: AGAINST Old Member Account No (PYXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX) has been approved. Payment is under process.

    My question is how many days does it take for payment to be processed and the amount to be transferred into my new account.
    Thanks
    Suhas

    Hi Basavaraj,

    I initiated the online transfer of PF from my previous employer (with EPFO) to present employer (PF trust) through present employer. No option was there to select previous employer.

    Present employer has approved the claim. However, previous employer found no option for approving it and getting “no action required” option only.

    The online status showing “Claim Form Approved by Present Employer” and nothing else.

    Is ther any issue? or no action is required by my previous employer?

    Regards

    Adarsh

    • PremPrem says

      HI Adarsh,

      How did you find out that the previous employer found no option for approving it and getting “no action required” option only?

      I am also stuck in this process with my previous employer.

    Dear Sir,

    My previous employer has approved my claim form on the 5th of Feb, 2014 and the current status as of 8th May, 2014: Your request is in transit between EPFO out and in office. Does it take that long? Has it been rejected by my current employer? If rejected, will I get to see the rejected status online?

    PS. Actually my current employer is no longer my current employer. I have moved again. Will it make a difference? Thanks.

    I have submitted for PF transfer on 16th April and It got approved both by my present and previous employers today(5th May).

    However, my previous a/c is not operative from 2008.

    Any idea how much time it takes for getting the transfer done in these cases.

    Thanks in advance.

  202. GajananGajanan says

    Hello sir,

    Good afternoon.Could you please share :

    1) By when will we have “one” unique PF numbers so that we don’t need transfer every time one changes his employer.

    2) Will this also apply to non transferred old accounts or only existing current PF ones.

    With best regards,
    Gajanan

  203. PremPrem says

    Hi Basavaraj,

    I raised the request on 14th Jan 2014 for online transfer of my PF account.
    Attestation through my present employer.

    I submitted the signed form as well within a week.

    The request as approved within a week by the present employer. Now, since more than 3 months the claim status shows it’s pending with the previous employer.

    Is there a way I can chase the previous employer? Or how can I get the exact status?
    What’s does the process says?

    Thank you,
    Prem

    Hi Basavaraj,

    I have raised the online request for online EPF transfer on 28th April with my previous employer and it been approved by them next day . Current status of my claim is “Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer’. Can you tell me what is next step in the process. Do I need to submit the hard copy of the approved form 3a to my current employer to take this process forward ?.

    Thanks
    Rohit

      • ElamElam says

        I don’t think we need to submit it to current employer. Rule says either you need to submit it to your past employer or current one. Preferably to past employer. Since you have submitted the hard copy to previous n they have approved, there is no action pending from you. You can check the status at the interval of 10 days. It will get changed to ‘ payment approved for transfer’. I did myself online transfer in Feb.

    Hi ,

    My online transfer claim status is approved by previous employer on 9th Dec 2013. I contacted the e-mail address provided in portal for status with whom my claim is pending but no response.

    Current Claim Status is -> Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer –in EPF website

    My questions are
    1)What are the next steps in this process as I don’t see any Action Item pending with anyone in EPFO website
    2) whom shall i contact for status of my claim or with whom the claim is pending

    Regards,
    Jagdish

    • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

      Jagadish-Whom you contacted through mail? Once you submit the signed form with your current employer and it was approved by previous employer then your work is over. Let us wait for the account transfer. If it was not transferred then contact your current employer as they will be in better position to inform you the status.

  208. srisri says

    Hi,

    This is a query regarding transfer of PF from private trust account to regional EPFO account via new online portal.

    I have my PF account number from my current employer which private establishment.
    ex format – YY/11111/1234 – assuming that 1234 is account number
    I tried mapping the above to regional PF office via – http://search.epfoservices.in/est_search.php
    ex formart – ZZ/VV/11111/1234 but when i try to get details in the EPFO online claim request the details are of another person like different name ,different father name etc.So i can not use the button to correct my details as the name itself is wrong.

    So is my assumption wrong on using the same last part acc,No 1234 of trust for regional office EPFO acc no mapping?
    Should i ask my current employer about the PF acc no held with EPFO regional office ZZ/VV/11111/? or
    Can I use my EPS number in case i know the same which is different from ac.No like ZZ/VV/11111/4321 ?

    • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

      Sri-I am now aware about the transfer of account from private trust to your existing EPF account. This post is mainly meant for transferring your old account to existing account. Hence I request you to contact the local EPFO.

  209. raviravi says

    Hi, can you pls confirm if Father’s name (abbreviated vs expanded) should make a difference while transferring the PF account from one organization to another organization ?
    I mean is father’s name validate, if all my details – DOB, Date of joining and leaving the company are correct ?

    Thanks
    Ravi

    • Basavaraj Tonagatti says

      Ravi-To be frank I am not aware about these official issues. Because in India we have different format of naming a person depending on the region he belongs to. Hence if there is minor changes then I don’t think there will be issue. But if whole name changes then they will create a problem.

  210. Shreehari says

    Hello Basavaraj,

    I had applied for Online transfer of PF from Previous Emp to Current Emp. The previous emp had approved and i had received SMS stating payment is under process.

    I just received an SMS from “BZ-EPFO” stating PF amount has been settled and amt has been transferred to A/C No. 10977236011 (IFSC code: SBIN000813). But, the A/C No which they have transferred is not my account and in the claim form i had provided correct account number.

    Could you please let me know how can i fix this.

    Thanks,
    Shreehari

        • ShreehariShreehari says

          Hello Basavaraj,

          I had approached my company on status of EPF transfer. But, they have come back stating they are aware of this.

          Could you please assist me next step, should i contact EPF directly.

          Thanks,

                • ShreehariShreehari says

                  Hi Basavaraj,

                  The status in OTCP says “Your claim has been settled and credited to new account.”.

                  Hi Basavaraj,

                  Post receiving the UAN number from my existing employer i applied for EPF transfer from my previous employer so that the amount can be credited to my existing UAN linked PF account.

                  I received initiation acknowledgement for transfer from my previous employer stating amount trasfer request to new EPF account.

                  Post confirmation sms, certain Transfer claim id was received to my mobile on Nov 1,2014.

                  Now suddenly from the last two days consicutively i have also received SMS from “BZ-EPFO” stating PF amount has been settled and amt has been transferred to A/C No. 10977236011 (IFSC code: SBIN000813) and sms also mentions the same transfer claim id.

                  And as preliminary measure i have asked both my previous/current employer and i am yet to get reply from them.

                  It would help if you could address few of my queries here.

                  The s/B account which is mentioned here is same as faced by other folks – Shreehari/ Charishma.

                  And as mentioned by Shreehari that her present employer has confirmed that it would start reflecting in next year statement – Does that means the equivalent periods interest would be lost to the saving account holder? — Amount + interest has been parked to the saving bank

                  My case was also transfer one not withdraw of money, then how come the amount has been credited to a saving account 10977236011.

                  I am away from the Bangalore state bank of India where this account has been maintained then how could one exactly know who is sitting behind this s/b account.

                  How could PF office transfer the amount to a saving account when nothing has been initiated from an individual.

                  I know i have bombarded many questions on you, but could u assist me to understand who can actually help consumer in such cases.
                  BTW mine case is a transfer from HYD to BLR PF office.

                  Many thanks!

        Sir, Is there any option to edit Online Transfer Claim (Form 13) to correct the mistake done? I have given wrong Bank A/c number and now I want to correct that with the Online Transfer claim itself? Is this possible now?
