Last month on 13th August,2015 I submitted Form 13 through online portal for my EPF account transfer from the previous employer to the current one. Within 2 weeks time, both my previous and current employer approved my transfer claim. From 28th Aug,2015 the status is showing as “Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office” and along with that one more pdf form could be seen , I hope that this new form is the revised/updated one as few editing was done by my previous employer in Date Of joining column. I just have 2 queries:
- I also went ahead and submitted the revised/updated Form 13 pdf to my current employer. Was that supposed to be done, Will there be any chances of rejection of my claim due to this duplicate request.
- I received a message in my phone stating “Your Form 13(Transfer) claim id: PYXYZ********2897 approved for payment through Cheque. Payment under process”. Generally how much time it takes after this to get the transfer done? Do I need to follow up with my current employer in this regards?
Manish-As your earlier request already approved then I don’t think it was necessary for you to submit the revised Form 13. Hence, they may reject the second request. There is no time limit set for this transfer. If it got delayed too much then can raise the issue with EPF Grievance.
