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

Recently EPFO (Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation) started an 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.

Note-We stopped commenting option for this particular post due to heavy commenting. Hence, if you have any doubt related to this post, then I request you to raise the same in BasuNivesh Forum.

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 a 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 the 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 the 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 a 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.

  1. Hello,

    I worked in TCS till Jan 2015. I joined another company Cargill after that and also left Cargill on Aug 2015. Joined a bank after that and I am currently working there.

    I tried to transfer my PF online via OTCP from TCS to Cargill on 28 APR 2015. The claim has been in status EPFO in and Out and both EPFO office and TCS informed me they haven’t received signed Form 13 from my then present employer Cargill.

    Cargill did not help much in this and after 1 year , I raised a fresh claim on 19 APR 2016 to transfer the TCS PF to my present employer which is a bank.

    This new claim now got rejected by EPFO office probably because there is an existing claim with EPFO in and Out status.

    Can you please advise how:

    1. I can raise a fresh claim to transfer PF or how shall I proceed here?
    2. Is there any way I can get the old claim cancelled by EPFO?
    3. Would it help if I go for PF Withdrawal or that request would be rejected too?

    Many thanks in Advance.

    Cheers

    • Saikat-You raise the complaint with EPFO Grievance Cell online.

  2. Hi
    I got following error while submitting form in OTCP because my DOB stored in EPFO is different from my actual DOB which I came to know only after exhausting the three attempts .( Later I found it from UAN database that my month and date had been interchanged!!!).
    “Your Employee Id is Blocked due to incorrect entry of date of birth three times”. How can I transfer my EPS now to my new account?
    Thanks in advance

    • Deepa-It is better you contact the EPFO to unlock it. Once they do, then apply for corrections through your employer.

  3. Hello ,

    While transferring MY previous Org. Amount to current one, I am getting error “Error: Data inconsistent. Please fill up the form again.”

    So not able to do the transfer. Can you please help me on this.

    Regards,
    Deepak

    • Deepak-I think your personal data mismatch. Check once again.

  4. Hi basunivesh,
    I had read your Q&A forum and still having doubt.So my question is
    1) I have done a transfer claim through OTCP on 14th March 2016 & 22nd March 2016 it has been approved by my previous employer.So checked with OTCP site and it shows like this,

    14 Mar 2016 Claim Form Submitted .
    22 Mar 2016 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .
    Current Status :Your claim has been settled and credited to new account.

    I got a message on 12 April 2014 stating that Form 13 (Transfer Claim) approved for payment through Cheque .Pmt under process.

    So i contacted my pcurrent employer and they said they didn’t get “ANY” information regarding transfer and settlement.

    So how should i know whether the amount is credited to my current account?
    In my current account balance is showing only till march 2015..please reply for this query and help me out.

    Thank You

    • Sooraj-You have to check it once the passbook updated. However, if you have doubt, then approach EPFO.

  5. Hi Basavaraj,

    I had my previous employer DOE mentioned wrongly in the PF database.

    Because of this my current employer was not able to link the new PF to the previous one hence they have created a new UAN number by using my another mobile number.

    After the correction of DOE from previous employer the PF transfer is in progress now.

    But now I have two UANs mapped to my name. one for the previous employer and one for the new employer.

    Keeping two UAN is a legal issue? what should I do with the old UAN, can I deactivate it? If so what is the procedure to do this.

    Please provide your suggestion

    Thanks

    • Rajkumar-You have to write to EPFO for this. Because as of now there is no clarity on this issue.

      • FYI. Got the response from EPFO.

        Query has been explained in FAQ section.

        Q.30 Two UAN allotted to me by EPFO?
        In case two UAN are allotted to you, this could be because of not filing of Date of Exit by your previous
        employer in ECR filing and/or you have applied for transfer of service in your current establishment.
        In such a case, you are suggested to immediately report the matter either to your employer and through email
        to [email protected] by mentioning, both – your current UAN and your previous UAN(s). After due
        verification, the previous UAN(s) allotted to you will be blocked and the current UAN will be kept active.

        Later you will be required to submit a Claim to get transfer of service and fund to the current UAN

        • Rajkumar-But in many cases two UAN issue arises when the employee hid his earlier UAN or not aware of it.

  6. Hello Sir , Its been 4 years since i quit my previous company . Can i still transfer my balance to the new a/c

  7. Hi, I am facing issues while filling online transfer claim for.

    In the transfer application Part B: DETAILS OF PREVIOUS ACCOUNT (WHICH IS TO BE TRANSFERRED) when I enter the PF account number, it only populates my name. Fathers name, date of joining and leaving is blank and I entered it manually.

    However in Part C: DETAILS OF PRESENT ACCOUNT, when I enter the existing organization’s details, the date of joining is incorrect. It is same as date of joining entered in Part B.

    Can you please help understand what is the issue here.

    Thanks,
    Yogesh

    • Yogesh-Date of joining and leaving how be same?

  8. Hi Sir,

    Earlier it was showing Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.
    Then it moved to, Claim Form 13 for Transfer to New Account Number: AGAINST Old Member Account No has been approved. Payment is under process.
    Now again it is showing, Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.
    Please suggest what should i do. It has been more than 2 months now.

    Thanks & Regards

    • Nishant-Better you raise the request at EPFO Grievance Cell online.

  9. I have applied for online transfer claim on 17th April 2016. Approximately how long does it take to transfer?

  10. Hi Basavaraj,

    I have initiated for an online transfer of PF. I chose attestation by my previous employer. My previous employer has approved this request. Just wanted to know, what are the next steps here? Does my current employer also need to approve this request?

    11 Mar 2016 Claim Form Submitted.
    14 Apr 2016 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer.

    Do I need to chase my current employer also for approvals?

    Would appreciate your guidance here.

    Thanks,
    Manish

    • Manish-Wait and watch for the completion of process.

  11. What does the Status mean – “No Transfer Claim found”. What is the action from our end.

    • Saujanya-It shows there is no request for transfer.

  12. Hello,

    when iam trying to to a fund transfer of KN/11394 to AP/HY. But it says insufficient data!! What i have observed is that: i have tried correcting the wrong information of KN , is that causing any trouble.

    Thanks in advance 🙂

  13. Dear Sir,

  14. Hi Sir/Madam

    I have initiated my PF funds transfer from my previous organisation (Exempted firm EPF Office Mumbai) to my current organisation (EPF office Pune) in the last week of december 2015. By The mid january 2015 it was already approved by both my previous and current employer. Since then it is showing the status as “Your request is in transit between EPFO In and Out Office”. It has already been 3 months and the status of this transaction hasn’t changed yet. Kindly suggest into this matter , also i have raised grievance online and awaiting reply. While checking online on grievance cell site my claim status is showing as ” new account credit details received and payment is under process but this is showing from last 2 months. Please suggest on the same. Also tell me if something else is required from my side to be completed.

  15. Hi,

    I applied for EPF transfer online very long back.

    It got rejected as i didnt send FORM 13 to my preivous employer.

    Now i want to freshly create claim status, by selecting present employer.

    Is it possible? if so, how to do it?

    Bcoz when i create a clain freshly, it say this claim is already applied.

    • Ashwini-If the earlier status showing as REJECTED, then you can go ahead and re-apply.

      • When i re apply, After filling details. When i click on preview button.

        It redirects to page, saying “The attempted Request for Transfer of Account already exists on the system. Click here to view the status of your existing request”

        • Ashwini-In that case you have to contact EPFO Grievance Cell for the same. Let them reject the claim, so that you can raise the fresh request. In that case instead of rejecting the earier claim, they ask some alternatives or addiitonal information to process the old request itself.

  16. Hi.

    I applied for pf transfer from my previous employer (amdocs) to my current employer (adobe)
    on december I got a message Claim Form 13 for Account Transfer AGAINST Member Account No (GNGGN00294XXXXXXXX) has been settled. Annexure K and Payment sent through NEFT.

    yet I am unable to see my pf neither in epf nor in trust managed by adobe.

    Kindly help

    • Damanpreet-You have to wait for passbook update. Otherwise raise the issue with EPFO.

      • Now what makes it tricky is that adobe ( my current employer and to whom I have transferred) maintains its own trust where as amdocs( my previous employer and from whom I have transferred) maintains through epfo

        So when I try seeing my details through UAN i get a message ” passbook not available as pertained to exempted trust’

        And when I check through Adobe portal I am unable to see that transferred amount.

        I raised the issue with EPFO Grievance portal but they closed with a message that I am not able to comprehend. in short their message was useless
        So What shalL I do now as passbook updation will not be reflected in my UAN portal.

          • Their reply was :
            “The claim has been approved and the amount has been transferred to the account MRNOI00302XXXXXXXX dated 19/12/2015.”

            I know that y amount has been transferred, I got a text message for that, the issue is
            I am unable to see it in my new account.

            • Damanpreet-You mention the same and reply to their answer.

              • Hi.
                My current employee(adobe) says that it hasn’t received form 13 and when I raised grievance, I got reply that epfo hasn’t received my annexure K.
                Now from whom shall I contact about my form 13 and Annexure K, adobe or Amdocs(previous employee) for EPFO office.
                If my document was missing then why my pf was transferred in he first place.

  17. What is the approximate timeline within which the amount gets transferred to the new PF account after the approval by previous employer?

  18. Hi

    My PF transfer claim status is showing below :

    07 Mar 2016 Claim Form Submitted .
    04 Apr 2016 Claim Form Pending at Previous Employer .
    28 Mar 2016 Claim Form Approved by Present Employer .

    my previous employer is not approving even after sending multiple mails. could you please guide me on this.
    is it mandatory for it to get approved.

    • Mallika-Raise the complaint with EPFO Grievance portal online against your employer.

  19. Hi Sir,

    Hope you are doing well 🙂

    Back on your portal to ask one more question.

    The status of my transfer moved from “The request is in transit between EPFO in and Out Office” to “Claim Form 13 for Transfer to New Account Number: AGAINST Old Member Account No has been approved. Payment is under process”

    The problem is that my ex PF trust (An Exempted Trust) had sent the cheque with my PF accumulations to EPFO in Dec 2015 with a copy of the cheque to me. It has been 4 months now but the status is still showing as Payment is under process. My only worry is that by now the cheque would have become invalid already.

    When I asked the EPFO office through mail, the answer that I got was that the transfer out establishment pertains to an exempted one. There is no physical transfer of funds. Only service detail (EPS) is transferred. Therefore the payment status shown as pending.

    How will I get to know that the payment is reflected in my account already if the payment status at EPFO portal is still showing pending.

    Please help Sir, what should I do now.

    Warm Regards,
    Neha

      • Sir, when will that update come, any tentative timeline?

        Regards,
        Neha Ansal

    Its been more than 7 months but amount is not transferred in my current account. It is showing status as ‘Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office’.The status has been the same for long now.
    I also raised a Grievance, please see below the reply for them. Could you please help me here;

    This is with reference to your Grievance registered vide Registration Number SRBOM/E/2015/05776.
    It is informed that after processing your grievance,the following action(s) has been taken:
    Member is advised to furnish his grievance in detail, since the grievance raised by the member has not mentioned his previous establishment name or code number to find his transfer in amount. Hence, this office is unable to reply to this grievance. Further, member is requested to trace the transfer in received to this office as his date of joining in PY/BOM/46545/489 is 16.12.2014

I wrote several emails to the EPF mail id mentioned and no replies or resolution. Today I received an email mentioning that I have not submitted the printable copy and it will get rejected in another 5 days if I do not submit it.

        Will I be able to generate a form again once it is rejected?

    • Sourav-It is procedural error. Please contact EPFO.

      • Thanks for replying. I have mailed them. But not hopeful of their reply.
        I have no option i guess. I think my employer will reject the request as I will not be able to submit the Form 13 to them. After rejection, i have to raise another request. Probably, thats the only option.

        • Hi Basavaraj,

  39. Hi Basavraj,

    I hope you are doing good.

    I had submitted for my PF transfer form online to my previous employer to transfer my PF to my current employer PF account.

    I submitted my claim online on 16-Nov-2014 and the claim was approved by my employer on 19-Nov-2014 but my PF has still not been transferred to my current PF account.

    I had raised couple of grievances with both the PF offices.

    The very recent grievance that I raised with the EPF RO Mumbai III said “CASES TRANSFERRED” so I checked my account balance with my current account I found the PF is not transferred yet so I raised a grievance with my current PF account office which is EPF RO Chennai. I received a reply stating “the transfer is not received from the previous PF account and hence member is requested to contact the previous PF office/trust”. I have written back to the EPF RO MUMBAI III asking for the explanation as both these offices are giving contradictory statements.

    Can I request you to guide me on this and tell me what according to you must have gone wrong. What should be my next course of action?

    I have already contacted my previous employer; however, the employer says that they have done what they can do. I will have to contact the PF office. I had already visited the PF office numerous times in the past including meeting the the Regional PF commissioner.

    My PF is pending since 9 years now.

    I have a tracking number to check my claim but I dont know where to use it. Can you give me some link where I can put that tracking number to check my transfer claim.

    Please suggest me as I am clueless on whats going on.

    Warm regards,

    Samir

  40. Hello ,
    I have submitted the printout to my previous employer. Today I have got a message – “Claim Approved for Payment through Cheque”.

    1. I assumed it is internal transfer through cheque from my previous employer to current employer – Is that correct?
    2. Also I had submitted the printout of Form 13 to previous employer only. Do I need to submit that to current employer?

    Thankyou in advance for resolving these queries. It is really helpful

    • Nikhil-1) It is internal transfer. 2) Not required.

  41. Hi Basavaraj,
    I transferred PF account from previous employer to current employer last year and below are the details

    29 Sep 2015 Claim Form Submitted .
    01 Oct 2015 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .
    31 Oct 2015 Claim Form Approved by Present Employer .

    Current Status :Your claim has been settled and credited to new account.

    Today, I checked the balance via SMS facility and find that I still have money in my old PF account, although the status says its been credited to the new account. Should this be the case?

    I also don’t see any balance in my new account as in the website it is posted that data is available only until 2014 for APHYDXXXXX office (which happens to be the PF office of my new establishment).

    Kindly let me know what action needs to be done from my end regarding the old account.

    Thanks,
    Sudha

    • Sudha-Wait for next passbook update (may be after April). If the status continued to be same, then raise the issue with EPFO online.

      • Thank you very much.

  42. Hi Basavaraj,

    I have a strage issue with my UAN. My UAN was generated while I was working with my previous employer, so I asked them and gave that URN to my current employer. But I don’t see my current PF details in my UAN, it still shows my previous employer as current account. The date of exit is not showing up. My current employer says that is the reason they are unable to map my current PF to UAN since previous employer has not yet updated my DOE.

    When I spoke to my previous employer, they say that they have already updated the DOE and that this issue is not only with me but with their new employees too. So they asked me to give Form 11 to current employer and that my current employer can also update it.

    Are you aware whether such an issue could or have had happened with anyone? And my previous employer is true and the process he told about Form 11 is the only way?

    Regards,
    Lalit

    • Lalit-UAN is suffice and Form 11 is not required. Why not you raise the issue with EPFO online directly?

      • Thanks, yes my previous employer said they would raise it with EPFO.

      • Hi Basavaraj,

        Issue resolved. Thought to share the info.

        Current employer can also update the DOE of previous employment on the basis of service certificate provided by previous employer. Now current PF account is mapped to UAN.

        • Lalit-Finally 🙂 Thanks for your sharing and hope this will help others.

  43. I have initiated online PF transfer from my previous PF account to existing PF account.

    When i submitted request for transfer the form 13 is not generated over there, so i am unable to find out status for the transfer.

    I have received a SMS from BZ-EPFOHO : form 13 (transfer) Claim ID : ——- approved for payment trough cheque. Payment under process.

    My current employer requesting to me to provide signed copy of form 13 which i filled online & submitted.

    Can you please guide how to get it the same.

    Thanks.
    Rohit

    • Rohit-Raise the same issue with EPFO. It is procedural error.

      • I have discussed with EPFO officer, he confirmed my PF amount has been already transferred to the existing account. He advised me to collect the Annexure-K & submit to the existing company.

        My existing company maintaining PF amount in Trust Account. They require signed hard copy after that only they will reflect this amount in my existing account.

        My previous companies payroll team is not help me out to provide Annexure-K.

        Is there any site or any other way where I can get it Annexure-K.

        Thanks for your help.

          • I will raise grievance. I appreciate your help. Thanks !

            • finally transferred amount has been settled in my existing PF account. 🙂 Thanks !!

              • Rohit-Congrats and thanks for your update 🙂

                • Current Status :Your claim has been settled and credited to new account.

                  How do I check if it is transferred?

    24 Feb 2016 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .
    07 Mar 2016 Claim Form Approved by Present Employer .

    Tracking ID 999248051602230054430

    Even Received a Form to be submitted to Employee.

    But how can i check my status and know if my balance has been transferred.

    • Abhishek-You can check using the online passbook option.

      • ohh…Thanks a lot for quick reply……. and sorry i did not check this response and asked the same question again.

        But my Passbook shows old balance.
        Any help

  49. I applied for my PF transfer from my previous organization where in I worked for 16 years. As I was not able to see any old PF amount transferred, I raised a grievance. In my passbook, I was able to see an entry saying that “Transfer in from old id” but the amount is zero. On raising grievance, I got a reply that ”
    It is informed that while transferring pf account number form previous account to present account, Pension amount (physical funds) can not be transferred . Only pension service will be added to your present account. At the time of settlement you will get full benefit including your previous service. This is for your kind information.”

    What does it means. I believe that the contribution goes to two heads. One is PF and other is Pension. While pension amount will not be transferred, PF amount should have got transferred and visible to me in my passbook.

    Can you tell whats the reason for this reply and is the response justified or I need to raise a query again.

    • Raj-They are stating that EPS will not be transferred. However, at the time of retirement you can claim so.

      • Thanks Basavraj. EPS part is fine. But the EPF part should have got transferred and the amount pertaining to it should have reflected in the new account passbook. Currently it is showing as zero amount.

        Is this understanding correct and does raising a query sounds justified here.

  50. Hi, this is Ramanachari, i applied for pf transfer from old employer to new employer. Both employers also accepted. Old employer send money and annexure k to current epfo office (online status). But current employer(trust) asks , plz submit annexure k . Then how can i get annexure k. what is the process, plz help me.

    • Ramanchari-Why your past employer asking Annexure when they already approved it?

  51. Hi Mr. Basavaraj,

    I recently raised a claim at Online PF transfer claim portal. It got approved by my present as well as previous Employer but got rejected by RO office. On raising grievance, they informed me that it got rejected due to EPF A/c,Trust address and payee detail wrong mentioned.
    Now I raised the claim again and see that there are two form 13 that got generated at the portal(one is addressed to Trust and other one to RPFC). My previous PF account is maintained by Trust. Which form(or both forms) is required to be submitted to my current Employer in this case? Your response will be highly appreciated.

    • Gaurav-If it is to managed by trust, then use the form which is meant for trust.

      • Thanks for your response. Just want to double check whether the form meant for trust is the only form that needs to be submitted to the Trust through my present employer and the other form is not relevant for transfer of PF and EPS accumulations?

  57. Hi,

    I had applied for online transfer of my PF from Bangalore (prev emp) to Mumbai (current emp). I had selected my previous employer for approval. The same was approved by my previous employer.

    The current status in the OTCP shows: Account Details received in EPFO IN office and under process. What does this mean?

    Also when I login to my UAN id and download my current passbook, this transfer amount reflects with the description TRANSFER IN (Old Member Id-:PYKRPxxxxxxx)- Amt. Received,Credit is Subject to verification.

    Can you please throw some light on this? I am confused. Is the amount transferred or in process? Usually how long does it take to transfer?

    I need this money for a medical emergency and can withdraw only when the amount is transferred.

  58. Hi,

    I received Annexure K from my previous employer giving details of the amount transferred to EPFO but i could see they have mention wrong PF account Number to be credited i.e. my PF account with new organisation is wrong in the form. Could you please advise what are the options available for me to get this rectified.Is it possible that epfo will credit to the wrong account without checking other details or they will block amount at epfo level or they will return to my previous employer.

    • Gaurav-Raise the issue with EPFO Grievance Cell online.

Now from this year I am again starting working for an Indian company so I registered for UAN with the previous PF Account and tried to download the Passbook but it gives me the same message as Sunil, “Contribution not received or status is as UCD Member or Already settled.Kindly contact to concern EPF office”. Please suggest what need to be done in order to transfer the money.

        Thanks.

        • Vishal-Better you contact the regional EPFO at the earliest.

  65. My ex employer has already send annexure K to PF office Pune and they had already given me teh proof with the courrier tracking number. Thne after I had raised a grievance back to PF office pune, but they say the same answer, no annexure K recieved. Dont know what to do can some one guide me with the directions please.

    • Surya-Instead of raising with Pune EPFO, raise the issue at centralized EPFO.

  66. Sir,

    I had requested for a transfer of account and the status is

    ‘Current Status :Your claim has been settled and credited to new account.’

    But when I check the account balance it still does not reflect the expected amount .

    I could still see amount in my previous account.

    Could you please let me know whether this is due to the EPFO database refresh latency

  67. Hi Basavraj,

    I am trying to transfer my PF from previous to present oraganization. However, I am getting an error message as “Since membership details in respect of member ID APHYD00376860000002740 is not available on the portal, you cannot submit the transfer claim online. It is advised to submit physical claim through previous or present employer”.

    What do you suggest. Should I go with the physical submission of the PF form.

    When I was transferring the PF from my previous organization to current organization, then the system gave an error that the DOB entered in Part B of Form 13 is different from the one maintained in EPFO database.

    It seems that my previous organization has passed wrong data to the RPFC. In such case, how should I go for the transfer of funds – Both PF and Pension. Please support.

    Thanks,

    • Kritika-You first have to rectify it through current employer.

  83. Hi Basavraj

    I applied online to transfer my EPF through current employer. I got a mail frm EPFO on 10th day that “Your transfer claim ID XXXXXXX (claim id) submitted on 19-01-2016 at OTCP is pending with employer for more than 10 days. The employer can reject the claim after 15 days due to non-receipt of signed copy. If you have not submitted signed copy to employer, please do so immediately.”

        • Hi Basavraj,

          After initiating online pf transfer request I got the error : “Unable to create the pdf…”. And there is no record showing in Claim Status screen.
          I have written mail to “[email protected]”. Also called them on 1800118005 and got the response it will be rectified in 2-3 working days.
          Mean while I got an email from my previous employer that they received my online pf transfer claim and I have to submit signed copy with them by Jan 22nd 2016. Otherwise they would reject my claim.

          Now my query is if my claim is rejected due to above mentioned issue. Will I be eligible to resubmit the claim or I would never be allowed to claim again and my pf money would go in govt account.

          Regards
          Pankaj

          • Pankja-It is typical portal error of EPFO. You will be allowed to raise the request once gain. If they not, then you have a proof to show of what went wrong. So don’t worry.

    • It’s means you already applied pf transfer, check pf transfer status

  100. Hi
    How many online transfer i can apply at a time. Actually i have to transfer PF from 2 previous employer to the
    current employer. Is it possible concurrently or I have to wait for one transfer to complete and then invoke the 2nd.Actually I am getting error from the portal for the 2nd transfer that the request is already exist.

    • Bhaskar-You can do it now at once as EPF numbers are different.

  101. Hi Mr. Basavaraj,

    I got a message today in the morning saying, “Form 13 (Transfer) Claim ID: XYZ approved for payment through Cheque. Pmt under process.

    So I had requested for a transfer, but here they are saying the payment will be done through cheque. I am a bit confused as to will I get the payment, or my current employer will get the payment?

    • Subhra-It is internal transfer settlement. No need to worry.

      • Same for me also. Can you please clarify whether it will still be sent through cheque or online transaction which could be faster. Any idea how long it will take if its through cheque if transaction between Pune and bangalore?

        • Viswanath-It is online transaction. Ideally it takes around 20-30 days.

          • Hi,

            Its already more than 30 days and status remains same as “Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office. ” Kindly clarify if a follow up is required and any contact number/email to followup.

            Thanks
            Viswanath

            • Vishwanath-Raise the complaint at EPFO Grievance Portal.

              • Thank you. I have registered a complaint.

              • Thanks for your guidance. I had raised the complaint and got response that transfer is already done on 14-Jan and same amount is reflected when i checked the UAN statement. But the status remains same in the Claim portal as processing.

                While doing Transfer, I see some interest shown till 31-Mar-2016 in the statement, but could not get correct calculation which should have been for two months only Apr-May 2015.

                I stayed in April -May in my previous company in this financial year and from June in new company. Please let me know when is the interest credited for the financial year 2015-2016 in the PF accounts. If its automatically done during transfer or its given after the transfer is one and in the month of March/April 2016.

                • Vishwanath-What do you meant CORRECT CALCULATION according to YOU?

                  • I am not able to get correct calculation for interest. Pls help me on that. I assumed, Interest will be paid along with the transfer for the two months I was part of Previous PF account / office in this FY year 2015-16. The remaining interest would be given in the March/April 2016. Please let me know how it will be done.

                    I understand that interest rate of this FY 201516 is not finalized yet, so if its already given for 2 /12 months during PF transfer, what interest rate it would have taken for calculation.

                    Thanks

                  • Hi,

                    I read your article on interest calculation. Its gives good information.

                    Can you also please guide me when a PF transfer is for a opening balance in a previous PF account, the interest will be calculated only with the available closing balance during transfer and not including future months in that financial year which should be done in the new PF account after FY year end? Please clarify

                    • Vishwanath-It will be on available balance for those months but not for future months.

                    • Thank you.

                      I have calculated the PF interest which is paid during the transfer , I find a difference of 30% less in the interest amount given and I have followed as per your method for the calculation. I had followed exactly same way of calculation to arrive at interest earned for each month with only 3.67% considered for Employee share part for interest calculation.

                      Can I raise a request in grievance portal to validate the interest paid during transfer ?

                      Thanks

      • Sir….u r doin a great job ! Kudos 🙂

  102. Hi

    • Aditya-Stay calm, let the next process start and transfer complete.

  103. Hello Basavaraj,

    My PF amount has been transferred in new PF account(which was a auto transferred) but I didn’t receive Pension Contribution amount. Only Employee and Employer share has been credited. Please let me know what should I do in this case. Should I raise a Issue with EPFO?

      • Hi Pam,

        I also has the same concern and raised the request with EPFO.
        I came to know that only length of service is transferred for the Pension. Actual amount is not transferred.
        Hope this will clear your doubt.

        Thanks.

  104. this is the current status of the PF transfer claim:-Account Details received in EPFO IN office and under process.

    Please update almost 1 month it is showing same, do i need to do some thing.

    • Chandramani-You can raise complaint with EPFO.

  105. Hi,

    Recently i changed my company few months back, when trying to do PF amount transfer from previous employer, found that there was mistake in date of birth.

    Is it Ok to go ahead for online transfer or should i get it edited by contacting previous employer ?
    If so, any idea how long it can take this process in Bangalore EPF ?

    • Basavaraj-Better you correct it and then transfer. I am not sure of how many days it will take to correct.

  106. Hi Basavaraj,

    My name is Chaitanya.
    I applied for the OTCP with Previous Employer.
    My Current Status is :
    Claim Form 13 for Transfer to New Account Number: AGAINST Old Member Account No XXXXX has been approved. Payment is under process.

    What if i left the employment with current employer ?
    What will be the status ?
    Where do i start in the next company where i am going to join ?

    • Chaitanya-No need to worry. When you join the new company, you provide the existing EPF number. The same will continue.

      • Hi Basavaraj,

        Thanks a lot for the reply.
        But every company has their own EPF Account number.
        Please re-direct me if i went in a wrong perception.

        Thanks,
        Chaitanya

        • Santosh-You raise again stating the earlier complaint reference and transfer request reference number. Mention that your earlier employer is not co-operating. Hence, you are raising the issue. They just not ready to take initiative.

      I also received a message recently from EPFO regarding a transfer claim through form 13. I haven’t filled in any transfer form. However, recently I filled the form 11 and my present employer linked the EPF account. It appears there has been an auto transfer claim created and transfer is being made automatically. Could you please share the details of your transfer – how long did it take and is the member’s involvement in the process required? Neither of my employers knows the details of the transfer.

      Many thanks,

      my Status of tranfer claim is showing two option :
      1.31.jan-2014- claim form submmited .
      2.15 May 2014 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer.

      now what is the next process .

      please suggest

  134. I have submitted my online transfer claim on 13th September 2015 to my Previous Employer. But after submitting the claim while taking print-out of my form to be send to my previous employer, I found some error on my form and I have not yet send the form to my previous employer and asked them to reject my claim, so that I can initiate a new claim. So far after asking them so many times they are not rejecting my claim and I am stuck as I cannot start a new claim till then.

    Please advise what can I do in this case to start a new claim and go ahead in the transfer.

    Also, I don’t think so they will be too supportive in helping me change the details from their side. Basically I want them to reject it and I will start a new claim and this time submit the form to my current employer.

    • Keyur-First raise the complaint with EPFO about pending transfer request. If it is processed then let it be. If rejected, then raise the request after the corrections.

  135. Dear Sir ,

    I have requested My EPF Tranfer from my Old PF number to New PF number on 8th September 2015.

    I have selected my Previous employer for approval and it is approved on 15th September 2015.

    Then 26th September 2015, I got a SMS from EPFOHO that my Form 13 (transfer) Claim id approved for payment through Cheque..Payment under process.

    still the status is showing as ” Your request is IN transit between EPFO out and IN office”.

    Could you please let me know how long this process will be completed and when I will get the Pf amount to be transferred to my new PF account number.

    Or let me know it’s there any possible way to cancel this transfer claim and I want to withdraw my PF amount from the old PF account. This will be very helpful for me.

    • Bharathikannan-It takes around 20-30 days. You can’t withdraw EPF when you are in job

    • Hi bharathikannan,

      I got the same sequence and my status also seems to be stuck at

      ” Your request is IN transit between EPFO out and IN office”.

      Any update on your transfer application?

      Thanks,
      Mukund

      • I also got the same status and there was no update for over a month. Therefore I raised a grievance on EPFINDIA.com. I asked them if the Annexure-K has been sent to my employer. Also asked a copy of annexure-K on my email.

        I got a reply in 20 days saying that they have uploaded the annexure K on the portal and employer should be able to see it. They emailed a copy to me also.

        So the next steps should be :

        1. Raise a grievance with your previous RPFC. Ask them for the check date, check number and annexure -k
        2. Side be side reach your employer (previous / Current) based on whom did you raise your request. Check if they see the annexure-k on portal
        3. Once you receive the document from RPFC, forward it to employer for further processing.
        4. Oce the processing is completed by new employer, should see the details in next payslip / new PF acct number.

  136. Hello Sir,

  145. Hi Basavaraj,

    I have recently changed my job and provided my UAN to the new employer. My questions are:-
    1. How long it will take to map UAN with my new PF account(mapping request has already been raised by the new employer)?
    2. After completion of UAN mapping, my pf will be transferred automatically from old account to new account or I need to raise pf transfer request through OTCP portal?

    Please through some light on these.

    • Pam-1) No specific time frame mentioned. 2) No need to request for transfer. It is automatic.

      • Dear Basavaraj,

        My case is same like Pam.
        I have got auto SMS from EPFO that they have got Claim form 13 for transfer on 9th Dec and same has been approved for payment through cheque on 15th Dec.
        My question is that how much time it would take to reflect the amount into my new PF account.

      • I have similar status. The query is that old member ID is only linked to UAN. Will current member ID also be linked to UAN and show as latest post the transfer? Will passbook also be updated accordingly post transfer?

        • Shrikanth-When you have UAN, then the old one will ONLY continue.

          • Is there any process to get the new Member ID linked to UAN card?

            • Shrikanth-Use the FAQ link of EPFO on the same.

  150. Hi,

    I changed my job about 4 months back. Last week, I applied for online transfer of pf account. I have two issues.

    1. I have changed my signature. My current signature does not tally with the old one. However, all my relevant documents bear my current signature. What should I do.
    2. Secondly, in the OTCP I entered a wrong date of Joining for my previous employee. I noticed this error only after submitting it online. Do I submit the form 13 pdf document to my current employee for approval or wait for 15 days for the claim to get rejected.
    3. If the claim is rejected, can I re-apply again online for transfer withdrawal.

    Please advise.

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    Regards,
    Vishal

    • Vishal-1) If they raise the issue of signature change, then declaration from your end is enough.
      2) Better to submit first with employer.
      3) YES.

      • Thank you for your advice.

  153. Hi All

    I have intiated PF transfer online. Now its approved by my previous & current employer . Then any action I have to perform?

    • Satyajit-No action is reuired from your end.

      • Hi Basavaraj,

        My PF transfer form is approved by both previous and current employer. After that I got a new PDF document in the online status. It has instructions section, that says the form has to be submitted to the PF office. Do I need to submit the form physically to PF office?

        • RAvi-If transfer is completed, then I don’t think this submission is required.

          • Thanks for the response. Transfer is not completed. Its just that both employers approved it.

  154. Dear Sir, my pf account no is MH/BAN/48846/32 .My earlier company name was XCEL Telecom Pvt Ltd but it was taken over by American Towers . I left the organisation without serving notice period in October 2008. I am doing my own Business and now I wish to withdraw my PF. .
    When I login through my UAN Portal and when I try to download the pass book it gives a message “Contribution not received or status is as UCD Member or Already settled” and when I try to check the PF balance I get a message as the account is inoperative. Sir what does this mean as I have not withdrawn my PF.
    Sir Kindly assist me so that I can get my PF.

    Thanks and regards
    Saket Kumar

    • Saket-Whether your current employer provided the same EPF account to you for contribution or created new EPF?

      • Sir I am not employed with any of the Company since Oct 2008. All I have is the salary slip of the earlier company which I left in 2008 with the PF Ac no as MH/BAN/48846/32.

        • Saket-It shows that your account is idle for more than 3 years without any contribution. Hence, better to withdraw. As this is inoperative account and idle for more than 3 years, you will not get any interest on this amount. Hence, apply for withdrawal.

          • Sir, sorry to disturb you but I have one last query i.e when i left the company the name of the company was XCEL Telecom Pvt Ltd and after few months it was sold / taken over by other company i.e American Towers.

            Sir pls guide me how I can withdraw my PF and where to approach?

            Thanks and regards
            Saket Kumar

  155. May I know how long will it take to link my new PF number to the existing UAN ?
    I have requested my new employer to link my New PF ID with the existing UAN. How can I track the status online ?

    • Divya-In my view there is no such time frame set. However, it will not take that much time. If it is mapped then your EPF number will be the old one.

  156. Hi,

    I withdrawn my EPF from my previous company before that I made a transfer request as well but since it was taking much time so later on I withdrawn it. I got EPF amount in my account but EPS amount I don’t know where it went. later on after raising grievance they told me that they transferred my EPS amount. is it correct?

  157. Hello,

    I had received a message in September stating that Form 13 (Transfer) Claim Id: XXXX approved for payment through cheque. Pmt under process .
    Since then, there is no update and my new account is not reflecting thee total amount.

    Can you please guide me on this

    • Akshay-What is the status in EPFO portal?

      • The PF transfer was done manually. I contacted Chennai PF office and they said the NEFT was done in September only. However, The amount has not been received in my new pf account number which is Bandra.

        That means the amount has been lying in the suspense account of SBI where NEFT was done.

        On contacting Bandra PF office yesterday. They stated that may be the annexure K is missing which needs to be sent from Chennai office.

        I am not sure how to proceed further

        1. Either it was not sent from Chennai office ( which i think is not true)
        2. It got lost somewhere in thee way while sending by post.

        What can be done now?

        • Akshay-When it is meant for transfer meant it is internal. I think the updating is missing here.

  158. Hi Basavaraj,

    I have a small query regarding (PF Claim transfer), last month I got a msg stating my old PF account has transferred to my new Employer and amount is transferred to A/c SBXXXXXX, now I downloaded My passbook (Current Employer) – it shows the data of present employer contribution, I tried to download passbook (Previous Employer) – it shows (Contribution not received or status is as UCD Member or Already settled). Please let me know how can I check my entire PF balance.

    Thank You

    • Roopa-You have to wait until the next update of passbook.

  159. Hi,

    My claim is approved by previous and present employer on 05th June 2015.
    My Current Status says “Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.”.

    Could you please let me know where it is pending now.

    Whom should I contact to get it transfered?

    Thank You

    Navajith

    • Navajith-It is hard to say so. But wait for few more days, if not settled, then raise issue with EPFO.

  160. Hi Basavaraj ,

    I have changed the Job and initiated the online PF transfer around 3 month back.
    From last 2 month , Below are the status showing on portal.

    03 Sep 2015 Claim Form Submitted .
    18 Sep 2015 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .
    15 Sep 2015 Claim Form Approved by Present Employer .
    Current Status :Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.

    I raised the Grievance and got the response saying “No claim has been received in respect of KN/23458/25457 till date. You are requested to contact Transfer-In/Out office regarding your claim form.” . Can you please help me here and suggest me what should I do?

    Thanks,
    Abhishek

    • Abhishek-Wait for few more days and then contact the “Transfer-In/Out office”.

  161. I am paying for Pension contribution for long time, I was worked with multiple organization in those organization I withdrawn the PF amount while reliving from the organization, in that I have not got Pension contribution amount.

    From Last organization onwards I am keeping the PF and Pension in UAN. How can I include the old pension contribution to the current UAN? What is the formalities to add,
    Can I request online or is any hard copy request to be given, If yes can you provide the hard copy request form?

    Regards
    Kishore

    • Kishore-In my view, if you already withdrawn the EPF then I think you also withdrawn the EPS. If not then better to withdraw now.

  162. I changed jobs and tried to do online of transfer. I got a message that a claim already exists, though, I cannot see any claim under view claim status. On 3rd Nov, I got a message that form 13 has been received and on 6th Nov I got a message that the amount is approved for cheque payment.

    The point is, after my initial few attempts of online of transfer and lack of seeing the claim under online claim status, I haven’t done anything. Nor have I submitted any documents.

    I am worried if this is a fraud happening on my account. Please let me know of any information that you know about this.

    Regards,
    Ajith

    • Ajith-If it is transfer then where comes the fraud? Also, check with your current employer about any information they relieved on the same.

  163. sir,

    • Sumit-Contact your nearest or concerned EPFO.

  164. Hi Basavaraj,

    On 22nd of October, 2015 I have applied for Online EPFO Transfer. On 26th I got the message from EPFO saying “The Member details of your previous employment have been verified by Previous Employer” Later after few days (3rd November, 2015). I received another message from EPFO saying “Your claim xxxxx pending with employer. It may get rejected after 06 if a signed copy is not submitted , Ignore if already submitted”

    I had submitted signed copy to employer day I completed online transfer (22nd October, 2015). On enquiring the status with my current employer I got to know “Employer digital signature got expired and he has sent a mail to EPFO and Employer approval will be done only after getting the new digital signature”

    My queries

    Current employer can approve Transfer request any time correct ? without looking at the stipulated period of 15 days

    Any reason for rejecting the transfer request , No need to go back to Previous employer right as it is already verified by Previous employer

    Incase if any rejection happens what is the next procedure.

    Kindly let me know your advice/suggestions

    Thanks
    Padmavathi

    • Padmavati-It is procedural delay of getting digital signature of employer. Hence, if the delay persists, then request for physical format of transfer.

      • I have a problem with previous employer and hence I cannot go to previous employer. So for Physical format of Transfer no need to go to Previous employer right as Previous employer verification done in my case

        Thanks
        Padmavati

          • Now both previous employer and present employer approved my transfer claim. How long it would take to complete rest of procedure from EPFO

            Thanks
            Padmavati

              • Thanks Basavaraj,

                Now I don’t have to bother about Previous Employer right? Still there is any action needed from my previous employer ?

                Please let me know your thoughts.

                Thanks
                Padmavati

                • Padmavati-No action is required by your previous employer.

                  • Hi Basavaraj,

                    Today I see my PF Transfer status as “”Your claim has been settled and credited in to your new account “. So I understand PF Transfer has completed. I tried to check my PF Balance with new Account. But I don’t see any updates it was same as I had checked 2-3 months before. Also I tried to download Pass Book from UAN site. But I have not seen my New Employee PF , Based on your previous post, I understands , I need to wait till my passbook get updated. Kindly let me know what is the frequency of PASS book updates

                    Thanks
                    Padmavati

                    • Padmavati-It will be usually once in a year (randomly after April).

                    • Hi Basavaraj,

                      I don’t see my UAN is linked to New Employer’s PF number, Whenever I go to UAN site I can my previous employer PF Number is linked to UAN and I can download Pass book. Linking UAN with PF number from New employer can be done by New Employer only or I can also do this individually . Please provide me more details

                      Thanks
                      Padmavati

                    • Padmavati-Once you provide the UAN, then linking and contributing to old EPF is employer’s issue. Check the same once again with your employer.

                    • Hi Basavaraj,

                      I am actually trying to respond back to your comment Padmavati-Once you provide the UAN, then linking and contributing to old EPF is employer’s issue. Check the same once again with your employer.””

                      But I don’t see reply option here so thought of updating here

                      I checked with current employer and I got the response saying *This is done by PF office so you need to wait until you get message from them. I don’t have turn around time on this. *

                      What to do here?

                      Thanks
                      Padmavati

                    • Padmavati-Quoting the same employer reply, raise the issue with EPFO Grievance Cell online. Because we don’t know when they reply.

  166. Hi,
    Thank you so much for clarifying all doubts. I have one.

    I recently initiated by PF transfer. Bot the organizations are Exempted, so in OTCP Portal I initiated the transfer using the pension account number. Below is the status for the claim #***5026
    07 Oct 2015 Claim Form Submitted .
    02 Nov 2015 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .
    08 Oct 2015 Claim Form Approved by Present Employer .

    The PF transfer is complete and I have received the amount to my present employer’s PF account. I have a doubt on the EPS transfer. How can I track it?

    Also, I have another doubt. I recently received another email from EPFO team stating
    “Your Transfer Claim is submitted under Tracking ID ****8803 . You may track the processing of your transfer claim on the portal using Tracking ID/ Member ID/ Mobile number.”

    The claim transfer id I initiated and the claim id I received in this email are different and I don’t see the new transfer claim id anywhere. Can you help from where I can check the status?

    Thanks,
    Rohit

  167. My transfer claim is approved by my present employer, but its been rejected by my previous employer. Is it necessary to get approved by both employees to complete the transfer process?

      • I have relieved from the services without completing the service period due to health reasons..and i was almost not in job for 4 months after relieving. When i joined in a new job i have applied for transfer and it is been rejected by them

        • Mahe-No need to worry. Take the help of your current employer and write a letter to EPFO and submit the physical transfer mode than the online. In that, mention that due to the said reasons last employer not approving the request. Hence, submitting the transfer through physical mode.

    • Sir,

      I have applied for online transferring of my past PF amount to my new PF account. Though I got approved from my CURRENT employer but my previous employer till not approved(status showing Claim Form Pending at Previous Employer ) What will be the next procedure I need to do?

  172. Hi,

    I have not initiated any transfer request for my PF account : UAN : xxxxx. However, I got 2 messages from BZ-EPFOHO on my mobile number xxxxx as below :

    MSG 1 :

    MSG 2 :
    Your transfer in details for crediting new account has been received and the same is under process.

    Since I have not initiated any transfer claims, why am I getting these messages ? I checked my account and no transfer claims are shown in my online account. Should I be worried ?

    • Shubham-It may be due to your new job change and providing UAN with new employer. If you not changed the job recently, then raise the issue with EPFO.

  185. Dear Sir,

    Had one query, the status of my PF transfer online shows that ” Your request is in transit between EPFO In and Out Office” from the past 6 months. I contacted my EPFO Office through mail to ask what this means. They sent in a reply saying that the EPS has been credited to my current PF Account but they have not received PF accumulations from my ex PF trust.

    When I had a word with my ex PF trust, they said that they have not received any formal letter from the EPFO office asking them to transfer the PF to my current PF Account.

    Can you please help and let me know what I should do now. What is the process once both the employers approve the online PF claims, does the EPFO contact the ex employer through a letter etc. basis which they release the PF Accumulations?

    Regards,
    Neha

  188. Hi, I have submitted my transfer claim in april,2015 through previous employer. Still the status is “It’s in transit from in In-Out PF office”. What does it mean?

    When I try to get the balance of my old pf account, it says “This account has already been settled”. But I can’t see the amount in my new PF account.

    Kindly suggest me what can I do? How much time it takes amount to get transferred?

    Thanks,
    Chandra Prakash

    • Chandra-It is too long wait. Raise the issue either in local EPFO or on EPFO portal.

  189. Hi Basvaraj,

    In my previous establishment and current establishment date of birth mismatch found, so current employer was unable to transfer the claim in the current one. I made a request to change the details which were found using “The following information in incorrect”. A form Revised 5/10 generated and i submitted through my previous employer about 2 weeks ago. Request you to help me in this regards as there is no status update. My previous establishment was with Thane and current one is with Vashi.

    One more thing my new employer can give me UAN no without transfer of previous funds.

    Request you to leave a copy of reply on my mail as well; this will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Mayank #09717304071

    • Mayank-Change the date of birth mismatch through your current employer. Once it is updated then go for transfer. Let your current employer give UAN. Later on it will be useful to transfer the fund.

      • Dear Basvaraj,
        My current employer asked me to do changes in DoB from the previous employer. Current employer denied to help me further.

        Pl Help.

        Mayank

        • Mayank-If earlier employer not co-operating then raise the issue with EPFO.

  190. Hi Basavaraj,
    I had submitted the request for the PF Transfer and today I hve received a Message from EPF saying that the amount has been settled and it has been sent to some A/C XXXXXXXXXX and IFSC Code SBINXXXX454. But I have checked with my current establishement that they dont maintained any account with the SBI bank. Could you please advice. I am worried

    • Sandip-This issue was raised by many. I feel it is internal transfer rather than transferring to your or employer bank accounts.

  191. Hi Basavaraj ,

    My PF transfer request is under Status :Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office from last 6 months. I have raised complaint in grievance management system on behalf of current employer. They replied as transfer in request not recieved to this office till date.

    Could you please tell me how to proceed further. Whom should i contact now. As it is already approved by the previous and current employers so who will be responsible now? Whom should i contact?.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Chandra mohan

    • Chandramohan-Raise the issue on your own in EPFO grievance, stating the details of history.

      • I did this in EPFO grievance. They forwarded request to the EPFO, RO, Delhi(South) which is my current organization PF office.
        They replied as transfer in request not received to this office till date.

        So whom should i contact now. Should i raise a request to the previous organization Pf office that is bangalore EPFO, RO?

        Regards,

      • Thank You, Basavaraj.

        I will wait for one more week incase If I didn’t get response from my Previous employer, is it possible to apply for transfer once again in Online through Current Employer.

        • Ramya-No, instead of applying for transfer once again, raise the complaint.

          • Thank You Basavaraj for your Suggestion,

            I have got message from EPFO stating my Claim form is approved by Previous Employer, So what will be the next process, do I need to follow up with my Present Employer??

            • Ramya-No need to act. Just wait and watch. If it got more delayed, then raise the issue with your current employer.

  197. Hi Sir,

    I have initiated PF transfer before 5 months and still the status shows “Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office”, and my doubt is if i switch over to a new organization now how this PF amount will get transferred and what is the procedure for that as this transfer request is still not complete?

  198. Dear Basavaraj,

    Response would really be helpful, as i am not knowing what to do.
    I understand there is no separate process to transfer EPF and EPS, but i guess here since EPF was maintained by trust it has caused an issue.

    already once form 13 was submitted when transfering from HP to accenture, during which i think EPS was not transfered, and accenture is again asking me to submit form 13, would this be right way of doing it, or you would suggest something else? I am really stuck in between and need your asssistance Thanks!

    • Raghav-I understood the problem. It may be due to fault of HP. Follow as per Accenture.

  199. Hi Basavaraj,

    Hope you are doing good!.I really appreciate your effort and kindness to share your knowledge.
    It would be great if you could please suggest on my issue.

    I joined a new organization and initiated PF transfer through their portal and after all approvals,I got the rejection message as below.

    24 Aug 2015 Claim Form Submitted .
    14 Sep 2015 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .
    27 Aug 2015 Claim Form Approved by Present Employer .

    Current Status :Claim Form 13 for Transfer to New Account Number: AGAINST Old Member Account has been rejected. Rejection letter is under dispatch/ dispatched to address in your claim.
    Reason of rejection: The reason of rejection is not available in database. You may please contact RO/SRO CHENNAI for further details

    Now I have written a mail to OTCP helpdesk and I don’t believe they would reply.

    I had received an SMS too that the cheque was issued for transfer, but all of a sudden it has been rejected.Please advice.

    Thanks Sri

    • Sri-I suggest to raise the complaint in EPFO Grievance portal too.

  200. Hi Basavaraj,

    I have applied for PF transfer 1 year back. My previous employer and present employer both approved and from last 1 year the status is showing as “Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office”.

    I also checked with previous employer ant they are saying they have cleared all thing from their side.

    My Previous employer PF account was from Bandra(MH/BAN/) and current employer PF account in Chennai(TN/MAS)
    Could you suggest whom I can contact for this.

    • Deepak-Raise the issue in EPFO Grievance portal.

  201. Hi..
    My PF amount got credited today in my account directly(chennai EPFO). Within 2 days after approval message they have credited the amount. So in 4 days time (after the form submitted to EPFO from my previous employer) all the settlement completed..Thanks!!!

  202. Hi,
    I’m working in MNC since 2011, unfortunately my complete details like name, fathers name, doj, dob has been registered incorrectly. So my office team have already submitted the supporting documents for the correction and it has already crossed 11 months till now and the correction not yet done. Please help with option to check the status from my side with PF office(chennai). Also explain me how the general procedure will takes place to complete the correction process. Also if i wanna exit the company do the correction process will go further?

    • Bala-Please check the status online in EPFO Portal. If old details exists, then raise the complaint at EPFO Grievance Cell.

      • As per your comments i have checked the status online, but still correction not yet completed. Hence i have registered my account at EPFO Grievance Cell

        • As it has already crossed 15 days from the date of submission of Grievance Register(RCHEN/E/2015/09830) and also i sent a mail to [email protected]. The Current Status of my complaint is “RECEIVED THE GRIEVANCE”. When i tried to contact the EPFO, RO, Chennai team they are not at all answering the calls. What would be the next procedure to proceed. Please assist….

      • Hi Basavaraj,
        As per the delay in touching the file with government officers i have raised the Grievance complaint against correction with registration number RCHEN/E/2015/09829. I received the reply from EPFO team saying “it is informed that as per recent EPFO, HO instructions, for any corrections in member details the member should submit a joint request letter through employer along with valid proof for the same. On receipt of same, necessary action will be taken.” Please consider this and do the needful.

  203. But yes, like you rightly said, my EPS is already available with my current company HP which i never transfered earlier, So only if EPF amount is transferred then the requirement is satisfied..

    what needs to be done? And also how do i need to transfer EPS amount from Accenture to HP? so that i will not have any issues further in case i change my company in the future?

    • Raghav-Truly speaking there is no such process to transfer ONLY EPS or EPF without EPS. EPF and EPS both follow together.

  204. Hi ,

    I had applied for transfer of my pf.
    I received a msg stating my pf amt has been settled & sent to acc no:XXXXXXX, IFSC code: SBIN0009044.
    However this acc# is not mine, hence i am worried.
    Is this a acc# maintained by pf department??

    • Arun-It is not YOUR account but internal transfer. Don’t worry.

      • Hi Basavraj,

        I had a similar query as I received the msg today as well. If this is an internal transfer, has the amount transferred to the new account that I mentioned in the transfer request ?

        Thanks,
        Prashant

  205. Dear Basavaraj sir,

    I had submitted for PF closure and withdrawal via Form 19 and 10C

    I got message from EPFO that my PF settlement claim is approved for payment through Cheque.
    I was expecting that the payment would be directly credited electronically to my S.B.account.

    Please let me know will i get cheque to my home address or bank or it will be electronically credited directly to my SB ac.

    Also i got approval messages for form 10c and another for PF settlement. so will there be two separate settlements?
    kindly respond.

    • Praveen-One is employee and another is employer contribution and both credited to your account rather than cheque.

  206. Hi Basavaraj Tonagatti,

    I have initiated my PF transfer Process Yesterday(24/09/2015) Through Online. i have also submitted the form with my sign to my previous employer. now today(25/09/2015) . i am getting a message from EPFO that my Claim is approved by my Previous employer. now what should i do next. or nothing is required from My side.

    Thanks
    Priyank Mankad

    • Priyank-Nothing is required from your end.

  207. Hi,

    I submitted the PF transfer claim form on 14-Jan-15. My previous employer approved the form on 20-Jan-15 and my present employer approved the form on 04-Feb-15. Now the claim status shows as approved by both the employers. But I didn’t get any message from EPFO regarding the transfer claim complete or so. It’s been already 9 months. How do I know my PF money has been transferred. If I see my old passbook online it shows the total amount under old account and the new passbook only shows the amount deposited by new employer. My name spells wrong in my old PF account as compared to new PF account. I am not sure if the claim is rejected or completed, I didn’t get any intimation. Please advise. Thanks..!!

    • Sriteja-Check the status online or raise the issue in EPFO Portal.

  208. Dear Basavaraj,

    I had applied for Pf transfer through offline mode. The forms was submitted by my previous employer to PF office Chennai 2 weeks back.

    Now, I have received a message stating that my claim ID has been approved for payment through cheque. pmt under process. I am kinda confused about the word cheque.
    Are they going to send some cheque or the transfer would be done internally to my new pf account number. I had mentioned my newly activated UAN number and current pf account number while sending the form for transfer

    • Akshay-No it is internal transfer. No need to worry.

  209. Dear Basavaraj,

    In UAn portal I have personally listed my current employer as previous member id. Also I have tranferred my previous pf to this new PF number. Still my current member id is reflecting as previous member company.

    How can I edit/ delete my previous member id in the UAN member portal I have written many maiils to epfo office but no response. Kindly advice.

    Regards,
    Karthik

    • Karthik-Instead of writing mail, I suggest you to raise in EPFO Grievance portal.

  210. Hi Basavaraj,

    I have filled my PF transfer Claim form on 08/09/2015 through Online, I got a msg from EPFO stating I have to submit the form through Previous employer on or before 23/09/2015, but I submitted the signed copy to my previous employer on 21/09/2015, incase if the Previous employer didn’t process within 23/09/2015 it will get rejected, what is the next step, I have to follow.

    • Rajesh-Is there are any such deadline provided by EPFO?

  211. I ask my current employer to transfer PF from my previous company(It has employ benefit trust). They asked me to fill a form, in some days I got a msg from EPFO..you request is under process with claim ID….after that i again got a msg that your request is rejected for the claim ID……….>
    Sir I am not understanding what is actually has happened in this situation….when i asked my current employer ..they asked me to confirm with my previous one.

    • Kunal-What is the reason they stated for rejection?

  212. Hi. After receiving the message “Form 13 (Transfer) Claim ID: TNMASlXXXXXXXXXX approved for payment through cheque. pmt under process”, I understand that we have to wait. But, I would like to know if the EPF amount will be transferred to my salary account which I had provided during the form submission (online) – meaning if I’d be able to withdraw the cash after it is transferred ? Please let me know.

    • Ebina-When you apply for transfer, then it will not be credited to your bank account. But it will be internal adjustment to show the total balance and will continue with your current EPF.

      • I see. Thanks! So, I believe I’ll be able to withdraw the cash only after I leave the current employer.

  213. Hi Basavaraj,
    As I claim My PF Online with my Previous Employer MRNOIXXXXXXXXXXXX but also fill the details of Current Employer PYBOMXXXXXXXXXXXXXX…..And now it showing me Current Status :Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.
    And last massage which I got from EPFO….. Form 13 (Transfer) Claim ID: MRNOlXXXXXXXXXX approved for payment through cheque. pmt under process.
    So I’m just little bit confused, Here I just wanted to know that how long it’ll take for it’s complete process. and if is there need to do anything from my side so please suggest me better….

    • Ajay-You can’t do anything. Just wait for internal fund transfer.

  216. i have initiated online pf transfer from my previous pf account to my current pf account, through my previous employer. i have received message as Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer . what to do next?

  217. While filling online pf transfer i am getting message as below . Please suggest

    The Present Establishment PYBOM0011394000 chosen by you have not registered Digital Signature Certificate on the portal. Please submit it physically to the Employer.

    • Ashutosh-Yes, I think your employer not registered for digital signature certificate of EPFO. Hence, you have to apply for offline mode.

  218. I did apply for online pf transfer. I have UAN number. Both previous and current has approved the claim. I saw on UAN portal passbook amount under Withdrawlas Claim against PARA 57(1) and interest updated upto 31/03/2016. It is transfer from UNEXEMPTED ESTABLISHMENT to EXEMPTED PF TRUST. Now both Employee and Employer share shows 0 in passbook.
    Does it mean amount already transferred ? When I can see passbook updated ? Would EXEMPTED PF TRUST also update passbook entry ? Also do EXEMPTED PF TRUST follow same rule and regulations as UNEXEMPTED ESTABLISHMENT ? Also why DOE ( date of exit ) is not updated yet on portal ?

    • Ashish-They update usually in April. Yes, all entries will show in passbook (irrespective exempted or whatever).

  219. Hi

    My EPF is transferred from my 2nd company to 3rd in April-2014 but EPS amount is not transferred yet. In my 2nd company EPF and EPS account number was same. What should I do for getting it transfer?

    My EPS transfer from 1st company was also pending so I applied for transfer but it was rejected mentioning that it was already transferred to my 2nd company account but in my 2nd company account statement I am not able to see the amount (however I applied separately in my second company as in my first company EPF and EPS account number was different). What should I do for getting EPS transfer from 1st account.

    Thanks in Advance

    • Piyush-There is no separate process to transfer EPS. EPS will follow EPF.

  221. Hi,

    I changed my employer recently that is Jun 11th 2015. I got the PF account number from my current employer and now it is linked with my UAN number.

    I am yet to initiate PF transfer request.
    But few days back on Aug 21st, I received an SMS from EPF saying transfer form 13 has been submitted. And on Aug 25th I got another SMS saying the transfer claim has been approved for payment through cheque.

    Below are my Old PF account details:
    PF No: PY/BOM/11394/000/200700
    Claim ID mentioned in SMS: PYBOM150850002240

    I checked with my current employer, he has not raised the transfer request.
    Can you please let me know, if it is possible to know who has raised this transfer request?

    I tried to raise an online transfer request, but since there is already a request, I am unable to do so. I need the hardcopy of the Form13, as my old PF is maintained by the PF trust of the company.

    What should be the next steps?

    Can you please help me in this regard?

    Thanks,
    Regards,
    Raghuram

    • Raghuram-I think it is procedure error. For your future reference of whether your own old account transferred or not, raise the issue with EPFO.

  222. Hello Basavaraj,

    I had submitted a claim for PF transfer from old organization which is OLD PF NO MHBAN00456650000222526 (MUMBAI) to NEW PF NO : PYBOM00130150000056136 (BANGALORE).

    I submitted Form 16 to my new organization and both old and new organization have approved it. Now the problem :

    – From August 13th 2015 i see this status in website : “””Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.”””
    However on my registered mobile i received a message on : 22nd August 2015 as below :

    Form 13 (Transfer) Claim ID : MHBAN150850001655 rejected. Rejection letter is under dispatch.

    If you see the number of the PF Office that has rejected is not same as my old account number. Is there any relationship? And if it is rejected why is it not reflecting in the website?

    As you mentioned in one of the post above, i have even registered a grievance through the portal that you mentioned in one of your post above.

    Can you please advice what i need to do next? You seem really knowledgeable in PF process, Thanks a lot!

    Regards
    Raghav

    • Raghav-Wait for their letter. Also, notice that EPF number is different to transfer claim ID.

      • This is in line with your response for my earlier query. How long do you think i can wait for the letter?since its almost a month now and i have not received any letter, and does a hard copy be delivered, or a soft copy?

        • Raghav-If you have doubt then raise the issue with EPFO Grievance Cell.

          • Sure Basavaraj, Thanks a lot for answering my queries!

            • Hello,

              This is inline with my earlier query. i want to give you more details of my query. I was working in organization A and shifted to another organization B. In org A my PF was maintained by the trust of the company. And after joining company B i submitted form 13 hard copies, and after sometime i requested for status from my earlier company A, and received the PF transfer out amount details and the annexure K details.

              Now with in 6 months due to personal reason i joined another organization from B to C. And now i raised an online claim through member claim portal.
              It was approved by organization B and C, however rejected by the PF office of old organization B telling PF details was not provided by Orgnization B.

              I contacted the organization B, and this was the info provided by them :

              “Please Note that PF office requires your previous pension details. Hence request you to contact you previous PF office and arrange a scan copy of Annexure K of PF and Pension transfer. So our OF office will be able to release Pension Amount”.

              So this means i need to contact my first organization “A” PF office, but this was maintained by a trust, for this i have received Annexure K and amount details as mentioned above, would that be sufficient?? Or i need to do something else? This is my first time doing a PF transfer, and facing issues. Can you please assist me? Please let me know more details..

              • Raghav-I think they unnecessarily creating issue. Why you have to run behind a trust or EPFO? They have to get the information and provide you transfer facility. Better you raise this issue on EPFO Grievance Portal.

                • Hello Again,

                  Thanks a lot in advance for your assistance!!!

                  I already raised grievance 3 times, 2 times with current PF office, and once with old office, and this was the response received :

                  from Previous Office(Bangalore Bommasandra) :

                  PF transfer may be sought from HP PF Trust. As the EPS account PY/BOM/13015/56136 pertains to members present account, the required confirmation on the said transfer may be sought from the pf office handling members previous pf/eps account number

                  Accenture Office ( Mumbai, Bandra) :

                  1st Response :

                  Your claim form has been returned/rejected due to FPF details (Pension details) not received from Previous establishment. Kindly submit form 13 for FPF details from Previous establishment.

                  2nd Response :

                  Your claim form 13 recd and rejected on 19.08.2015 as the family pension details not recd from your previous establishment/RPFC. hence you are requested to submit F-13 for FPF details to be called from your previous establishment.

                  To add more details, i joined HP my first company where PYBOM00130150000056136 was my first PF account, and then i joined accenture and got PF account , MHBAN00456650000222526

                  I now provided form16 hard copies and got PF amount transfered from HP PF TRUST To Accenture PF account

                  Now with in 6 months, i joined back HP due to personal reasons and Now i have the SAME PF account as 1st i.e PYBOM00130150000056136.

                  I think this is the issue, as my old PF account is now my current PF account. And i am really confused as to what i need to do.. 🙁 Need your assistance and steps, as i already raised grievance multiple times, no wonder people prefer to withdraw PF amount when they change an organization.

                  • Raghav-You left HP and moved to Accenture and again moved back to HP right? Now you want to transfer the Accenture EPF back to HP EPF right?

                    • Hello,

                      Yes that is right, i moved to Accenture from HP, and with in 6 months back to HP, hence my PF account number in HP is still the same old one used earlier.

                      I used hard copies of form16 to initially to transfer amount from HP to Accenture(But i guess only PF amount was transferred but not EPS)

                      Now when i raised a request to transfer from Accenture back to HP, they are raising a concern that EPS details are not provided. I am not sure how i need to proceed.

    I recently changed my previous organization HCL tech to new Organization and on my last payslip I was having the PF//Pension No as : xxx Trust Gn/GGN/5572/171472.
    But on my all previous payslips Pension No also given as HIL EPF Trust – HR/5572/171472 // RPFC – HR/5572/112993
    Now issue is I tried transferring in EPFO site, In Part B, I have given PF num 171472 and I have got below message
    “Since membership details in respect of member ID GNGGN00055720000171472 not available on the portal, you cannot submit the transfer claim online. It is advised to submit physical claim thorough previous or present employer.”
    And now I have given Pension No 112993 and I got below message in green
    “Your previous establishment GNGGN0005572000 is exempted under PF (handled by Trust) and unexempted under Pension. Your Pension Scheme is handled by RO GURGAON.”
    Could you please help
    1. Can I procced transfer claim by using Pension No?
    2. Why the error is coming for PF and NOT for Pension no?
    3. If I can’t procced with transfer of my claim, what should be next step?

    Kindly guide me sir

    Best regards
    Chatanya

    • Chatanya-1) For transfer EPF you need EPF number but not EPS. 2) In my view it is for EPF. 3) As they suggested, apply for physical transfer through your current employer.

      • Dear sir,

        for your reply to my query 2: In my view it is for EPF …
        My understanding is that the successful message I got is for may be for EPF No and I Can try the online transfer ?
        Could u pls suggest me

        regards
        Chaitanya

        • Chaitanya-Yes, try and update about what you did.

          • dear sir,
            thanks for the quick reply.
            I tried, yester day I was able to click ‘Previw’ button and i got a preview page. But today it is giving message as ‘Present Employer’ is not registered digital signatures. Yester day I did not get this message 🙁

            Regards
            Chaitanya

            • Chaitanya-I expected the same. Your current employer not registered for digital signatures. Hence, only physical transfer possible.

  225. Hello,

    I had submitted request for online PF transfer, and the status shows claim approved from both previous and current employer. But the amount is not transferred yet. Status was last updated on 5th Dec 2014.

    How should I proceed further.

    Thanks

    • Mandakini-Wait for at least up to next update.

  226. Sir,

    I have raised an online transfer claim in the way you suggested in this post. Both my employers approved it. But, since more than 3 months it is showing “Current Status :Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office. ”

    I asked my current employer and previous employer, they are asking me to check with EPF office or write a greivance to them. Please tell me if I can write to some email id. I wrote to [email protected], as well as [email protected] , but getting a delivery failure for my mails.

    Please advice. Thank you.

  227. I had applied OTCP my previous PF account to current one and the same form submitted and approved by both previous and current PF establishment online, but later it has been rejected by RPFO without assign any reason, I got a SMS ” FORM13 CALIM ID: GGN/GN……1556 rejected. and rejection letter is under dispatch” even after a month or so I am not able to find the reason. I raised a grievance on line with EPFO and status on mail provided is below “”This is with reference to your Grievance registered vide Registration Number HRGGN/E/2015/05677.
    It is informed that after processing your grievance,the following action(s) has been taken:
    It is to inform you that the establishment registered under PF code No. HR/GGN/26237 is an exempted establishment, PF is maintained by its Trust so that any PF query please contact Trust only. Member may ask regarding query of EPS with providing the EPS No””
    now I am struck not able to raise the same again and also reason for rejection once it was approved by both present n previous EPF establishment online.

    I raised online transfer claim through previous employer to current and current status is claim approved by previous employer.
    I got message from EPFO is “Claim form 13 for transfer for Member Acct PUPUN0307736000000026 received on 21st aug 2015 and Claim ID PUPUN150850001655 is under process.

    My question is that when I seen on EPFO portal it not shows Claim ID (PUPUN150850001655) which got in message.

    I am little bit confused on this Claim ID, I know about Tracking ID which got when online transfer claim filed.
    Please request to you, clarify my doubt.

My current employer has properly updated records. recently i have applied for online PF account transfer. Will EPF agree to transfer my claim as my names are mismatching. Please guide me. venu

  238. Hello Sir,

    I changed my job in May and have submitted Form-13 to my present employer. My previous job was in Bangalore and new job is in Hyderabad. My new employer created another PF account and i could see both (Bangalore PF account and Hyderabad PF account) accounts under my UAN. On 18th August i received an SMS saying that my entire money from Old PF account has been deposited to an SBI A/C number – 10811684279, Hyderabad Main Branch.I enquird with SBI and found that this account belongs to EPF. I checked my old account passbook and saw this transaction under “Claim Against Para 57(1)”. However, I neither see this amount reflecting in my New PF account passbook nor i see this claim under my UAN login!

    On 20th August i received couple of messages mentioning “Form13 Claim approved for payment through Cheque. Pmt under process” & “Claim form 13 for transfer for member act received and claim id # is under process.”

    I am really confused, as my old PF account passbook is already updated with NO BALANCE. And i don’t see this amount in new passbook.. Could please guide me what should i do in this case?

    Thanks,
    Suresh.

    • Suresh-It is transferred, just wait for passbook update.

      • Sir,

        Thanks for your reply. Any idea how many days passbook update take?

        Thanks,
        Suresh.

  239. I have joined PwC on April, and raised a PF transfer through my current employer. But the claim has been rejected stating that ‘It is informed that the member claim was rejected due to F/5 particulars not uploaded in the system in present employment by the employer. Hence claim rejected and called for clarification regarding this. Hence member may advised to contact present employer and submit the same after the rectifying the above issue.’, but my employer says that ‘PwC india has its own pf trust hence Form 5 is not required for PF transfer.’
    What should I do now? Please help.

    • Anindya-Inform the same to EPFO of what your employer replied to your doubt.

  242. Hi,

    I Joined in Infosys in Jan 2015 , I applied for my PF transfer in Feb 2015. In july the status in EPF site is Transfer is approved and Payment is under process.

    I Checked with with my current employer since its almost 6 months back I have applied for transfer but not yet credited in my current PF Account. They suggested me to Apply through OTCP now. Same thing I did and status till 18th aug is Submitted and approved by Employer and EPF OFiice, Payment is under process.

    Today 19th aug I checkd again in EPF site again, Its showing that my new transfer claim is rejected and Earlier I applied one is under process.

    1st I applied in manual forms(Feb-2015) that Status : Claim Form 13 for Transfer to New Account Number: AGAINST Old Member Account No (PYKRP00184530000017730) has been approved. Payment is under process.

    2nd I applied in Online OTCP Portal (Aug-2015) that Status : Claim Form 13 for Transfer to New Account Number: AGAINST Old Member Account has been rejected. Rejection letter is under dispatch/ dispatched to address in your claim.
    Reason of rejection: The reason of rejection is not available in database. You may please contact RO/SRO KRPURAMWHITEFIELD for further details

    In my first case status is approved and payment is under process from July onwards. till now no progress

    In this case what I have to do now? How long I have tom wait again. Please suggest me on this.

    Regards,
    Galeeb T

    • Galeeb-Your EPF transfer approved based on your first request. It will reflect when they update the passbook.

      • In passbook I am able to see total amount till Mar 2015 and interest till march 2016.

        When I can expect the transfer? Usually how many days they took to update passbook?

        Do I need to work on followups or they can take care?

        Because its almost 1 month back its approved and status changed to Payment is under process.

        • Rajesh-It is Government organization. Hence, predicting or setting any time limit to these guys will not work.

  243. Hi Basavaraj,

    I have initiated PF transfer through my previous employer and my current PF transfer status is being shown as below:

    03 Aug 2015 Claim Form Submitted .
    17 Aug 2015 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .

    I can now see 2 forms namely RO-SRO and APPD.

    Can you please advise me on the next steps? Do I need to submit anything to my current employer as well? or the process will continue automatically?

    Because I see many people also have “Claim Form Approved by Present Employer” in their statuses. So I just wanted to know if I need to submit anything or do any follow up with my current employer as well.

    Please guide.

    Thank you.

    • Praneeth-If claim is approved from your past employer then you don’t have to do anything.

      • I have also same,

        Thank you very much Basavaraj…

  244. Dear Sir,
    I submitted my OTCP to my present employer (On Dec 2014). After 1 months I got a message that “ Your present employer is approved for transfer”. My problem is my previous employer is not approving it. Now it is Aug 15. When I called they are not responding.

    What I do and which PF office I have to go.

    My present and Previous PF office is different.

    Where and What compliment I have to file.?

    Please Suggest

    Thanks in Advance

    Regards

    • Please got through the Present Employer and submit the transfer claim Physically, then yours account will transfer with in one month, there is no role of previous employer to submit the claim Physically.

  245. Hi sir,

    My previous company pf office in Andrapradesh. and currently i am working in Mangalore. my current P.F office in Bangalore. when i joined he new job i gave the previous Uan, Pf number to them. but they made different new number and all. so, can i transfer old amount to new company in online without any employer sign..i checked in online digital signature available showing. If i want transfer through any local office i need any employer’s sign..so, i want to do it in online.. for that also any employer sign is must or what.

    • Machu-First rectify your UAN. Then request for transfer.

  246. Hi,

    I submitted a form to my current company for transfer my previous claim. Now I have received a sms from EPFHO “Your Transfer Claim is submitted under Tracking ID. You may track the processing of you transfer claim on the portal using Tracking ID/MemberID/Mobile Number.” What should I do next.

    • Deepak-Your request is under process and they are saying that if you need status then you can check it by providing the tracking id.

  247. Hi Basavaraj,

    I recently changed my job and after linking my new PF account with UAN, once fine data I received that a SMS from EPFO that my Claim 13 has been received and then approved and finally a SMS saying that it has been settled and transfer to A/C no. 10977236011 (IFSC code – SBIN0000813).

    I am not sure who initiated this transfer, as I have not done. And I am not sure the A/c to which money has been transferred is whose – whether it is EPFO internal account or some wrong account.

    Can you please help in understanding how to check whether the transfer has been done correctly in my new PF account?

    -Deepak

    • Deepak-If you not initiated the process then check the same with your employer.

      • Hi Basavaraj,

        I had checked with my current employer, they are saying that they have also not initiated any transfer claim. Is it possible that my previous would have done?

        -Deepak

        • Deepak-They can’t do. In this situation, better to contact the regional EPFO.

    • Hi Depak,

      Is your issue sorted out ? I also did my PF transfer from previous employeer to current employer and got the same message. looks the SBI account belongs to PF department not any individual account.

      Regards
      Mathew

  253. Hi,
    I have filled up the online request for transfer of account, but made a mistake. I got confused in PF account no with EPFO office and PF account no in trust, and filled both as same. Please suggest me what can be done now and should i continue sending the hard copies to my previous and present employer.

    Thanks

  254. Hi Basvaraj,

    I have applied for Online Claim Transfer on 17th June 2015, till date i have not received any status from my previous employer, whenever i called them they just state that by this week they will approve the request. what to do in this case, how to escalate this matter.

      • Hi, the request has been approved now, now what to do next?? please guide?

        • Samiul-You have to wait until the earlier balance show in your current passbook.

  255. Hi,

    I was trying to transfer my PF online from previous org. to current org…but got confused & seek some clarity & suggestion from your end. My previous Co is exempted under PF & unexempted under Pension – I figured out that, I’ve a separate EPF no & EPS no.Now while filling up the Part-B online with EPF no, it shows some other Member’s name; whereas while putting the EPS no. it reflects my name..but the other info like Father’s name, DoJ,DoL is missing.

    If I have to go for online transfer, how is it that my EPF no showing some other member’s name!! which has created a bit of confusion. What do I do now? Pls suggest.

    • Sumon-I feeling something missing in EPF part. Discuss the same with your past employer or regional EPFO and rectify first.

  256. Hi,

    I have filled online transfer form , and in status message is showing like below.

    As already it took long time I have raised grievance in both source(Pune) and destination(Chennai) RPFC and get below answer from both offices.

    Reply from RPFC Pune:
    With reference to your grievance, it is to inform you that your transfer claim was settled and an amount of Rs.93390/- has been transferred to TN/MAS/31309/263898 through NEFT vide Ch. No.810993 and same has been credited on 17/11/2014. Hence, you are requested to contact your present employer / PF Office regarding the same.

    Reply from RPFC Chennai:
    It is informed that the no transfer in amount from PU/PUN/34224/56090 has been received till date. The member is requested to contact RPFC Pune for further details.

    Could you please suggest what should I do now.

    Thanking you,
    Neelanjan

    • Neelanjan-The only option for you is to raise the same issue with Pune by providing the Chennai response. It seems procedure lapse.

      • Hi Basavaraj/Neelanjan,

        My current status of PF transfer is as below:

        13 July 2015 Claim Form Submitted .
        26 July 2015 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .
        30 July 2015 Claim Form Approved by Present Employer .

        What is the next step? There is a new form (a filled Form 13) available in the OTCP website uploaded to my PF transfer request, which gives the following instructions. Can you please let me know if I need to submit the Form 13 again to the Current/Previous employer? Or do I just wait to get the status to change?

        INSTRUCTIONS AND GUIDELINES
        1. Member has the option to get his/her claim form attested/digitally signed by the present or the previous
        employer. In case of signature by the previous employer, time taken in settlement will be less.
        2. The member should sign the online generated form and submit the same to the employer (previous or
        present) as per his option while filling the form.
        3. In case the Previous Account was maintained by PF Trust of the exempted establishment, the member
        should submit a Form 13 to the Trust that maintained the previous PF Account and another Form 13 to the
        employer (previous or present, as per his option while filling the form) for attestation/digital signature of the
        employer.
        4. The Form should be submitted to that PF Office under which previous or the present account is
        maintained, depending upon as to which employer has attested the claim. (In case the claim is attested by
        the present employer, claim should be submitted with the PF Office under which the present account is
        maintained, and so on).
        5. The Bank Address is for verification purpose even if the Fund will be transferred to the EPFO Office/Trust
        maintaining the present account number.

        • John-If it is already approved then you have to wait to show the details in your current passbook.

  257. My date of resignation showing 13/07/2010 but date of leaving in the previous employer is 17/07/2010 but my date of joining at current employer is 15/07/2010.

    • Subhranil-You can transfer and rectify the error through your current employer.

  258. Hello,

    I have initiated the online transfer through previous employer. Later I realized exit date was incorrect by four years, Does it impact on amount to be transferred? Any other impact e.f later withdrawl?

    Account is showing Joining 01/08/2008 exit 31/10/2010. (This dates below to previous to previous company)

  261. Dear sir,

    When I tried transferring online transfer of my PF balance from my previous company to present PF account, my date of birth detail for the previous PF account number was shown empty and I was not able to proceed any more.

    I raised a complaint with PF office. After a month got a response from them saying they have corrected this. But I still see the same issue in UAN PF transfer site.

    What do I do now. Can you let me know the process for paper based PF transfer.

    Thanks
    Sheela

    • Sheela-No option but to raise the issue again with quoting the earlier complaint reference number.

    • Dear Sheela ,
      Please go through the present employer and transfer the account physically, when we transfer our account online that time all document should be same as Name, DOB, Fahter name etc, so You Have to submit your Transfer claim Physically by Present Employer.

  262. I had applied for a transfer, however there was one error in the submission & hence I requested my present employer to reject the form so that I can submit fresh.

    Now when I apply for a fresh transfer of the same PF account (source account). The portal says the claim is already raised.

    Can anyone suggest, if there is a time limit as to when the fresh claim can be submitted after a claim has been rejected?

    • Sagnik-First confirm whether your employer rejected it or not.

  263. sir,

    I have applied for transfer in otcp portal but my previous employer rejected the claim ,again I apply for transfer claim but after 10 days no response given from previous employer. now what is the next duty to recover my pf amount.

    My Question is if my previous employer is not cooperating means, how to transfer my PF amount?. Can i withdrawn my PF amount directly without my Previous employer help? Please assist me regarding this.

    Thanks in advance 🙂

    • Madhan-It is their responsibility to dig the records. If they don’t want to do that then let them approve the transfer. You no longer withdraw. Instead, raise the issue with EPFO.

  271. Hi Sir,

    I worked in Chennai Location from 13/07/2011 to 12/04/2013 and I moved to Hyderabad and I joined in another Company. But, I didn’t transfer my PF and I left the company in Hyderabad after serving for 7 Months as the project is closed and I applied the PF for Hyderabad Company and I received in 45 days.

    Now I am Working in another Company in Hyderabad from 04/08/2014 to till date and I transferred my PF of Chennai Company to My Current Company which I am Working in Hyderabad through online on 02/06/2015.

    02 June 2015 Claim Form Submitted .
    11 June 2015 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .
    11 June 2015 Claim Form Approved by Present Employer .

    Both the Payers approved, So I went to PF office in Hyderabad with the Attested Approved Form by the Current Employer. The Officer at the PF office stated that It will be Transferred through Online and no need to submit the form to PF Office as it is transferred through online. It’s been more than 40 Days But, Still I didn’t get any Status from the PF Office that my PF has been Transferred to my current account. Kindly, Please suggest what to do next..

    • Jayaprakash-What is the current online status?

      • Hi Sir,

        It shows as, approved by both the Employer’s. How will I come to know that the amount is transferred to my current PF account. So, far I have not received any kind of status the it is in pending or in review status by the PF office. Do I need to send the Employer’s approved form to Chennai PF office or to the PF office in Hyderabad !!? Because, I took the Form to Hyderabad PF Office but, they stated amount will be transferred through online. Please suggest me what to do next and whom to contact as I struck in here and it’s been more than 45 days and havn’t received any kind of status from the PF Office . Thank you.

        Thanks & Regards,
        D.Jayaprakash.

          • Hi Raj,

            I requested for Pass book Update and I am receiving only the Current Company Amount. The previous Company PF Amount was not Added or transferred to the current PF Account. Can u please tell.. how much time will it take to transfer my previous Company PF to Current Company ??

            Thanks & Regards,
            D.Jayaprakash.

              • I think, EPFO site updates in every Feb or March cycle. So the final updated amount will be reflected in passbook after this cycle.

    • Hi Jayaprakash,

      I’m in similar situation as like you. Just one doubt I have –

      Did you sent the form to present employer as well? As I can see you have approved claim by previous employer first and then present employer. How present employer approved it if you have not sent any form to them?

      In my case, I have sent form to my previous employer ONLY and now it is approved by them.

      Can you please brief your claim process here.

      • Hi Ganesh,

        In my Case it was first approved by my present Employer and later on approved by my previous Employer. Now I have the Approved Form. But, I havn’t received any Status, Neither from Chennai PF Office Nor From Hyderabad PF Office. It’s been 50 days but, no status updated from PF department.
        Need to know what to do Next.

        Thanks & Regards,
        D.Jayaprakash.

        • Hi Jayaprakash,

          In my case now, the EPFO site showing current status as – Payment is under process and its been showing since last week.

    • Vijay-I don’t think it creates any problem.

  273. I have applied for the claim of my EPF with previous employer

    both the employer are registered online and I have registered the details by using UAN

    Can you please explain the process , Thank you in advance.

    • Lingesh-No need to worry, EPS also follow the EPF. They may update later. But it is sure that both go together and there is no separate process to transfer it.

    After switching my job, I got my new PF account linked to the UAN provided by the previous employer. Now both pf accounts are under the same UAN.
    In my previous PF account, there is a slight mistake in my fathers name, spelling KHEEM as KHEEN. All other info is matching.
    Q1. Will this affect my online transfer claim, or there are some chances of getting accepted? I am planning to claim with this data only.
    Q2. Can i claim again with correct details if this claim is rejected?
    Q3. Can I withdraw the amount from previous pf account after the claim gets rejected?

    Kindly reply asap. Its urgent.

    Thanks and Regards,

  298. Hi Basavaraj Sir,

    Every time I check for my UAN Status the following line appears ”Request for UAN for this Member Id GNGGN00250350000001075 is already under process.(through ECR)”.
    My HR Manager is not at all co-operative and I am pretty new to the professional world.
    Please guide and help.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Anirban Sengupta

    • Anirban-The only option is to personally visit the regional EPFO. Otherwise force your employer to get it done properly.

  299. In my company for two employee the UAN is generated twice. Please guide the procedure to cancel on UAN and update all the date on remaining UAN.

    • Satish-I think you are asking this an employer point of view. I don’t have an idea on this.

    Thanks,

    • Saurabh-Please wait, otherwise contact the local or concerned EPFO.

  301. Hi,

    One more question suppose if my present employer was not issued me UAN so while generating UAN which PF account number i need to use the old or new.

    Thanks,
    Manoj

  303. Hi,

    I am trying to do online transfer.
    After I enter all the information in the portal, I enter the text and click on “GET PIN” button.
    Now I am supposed to get a PIN and use that to submit.
    But, I am not getting the PIN.
    I tried 15-20 times in last 4-5 days. I am not at all getting the PIN.

    To check if there is problem with mobile number, I tried downloading the PASSBOOK.
    This also I tried several times and got PIN once – the SMS came after about 4 hours!!

    So, I want to know, if anybody else has faced this issue? Any idea how to get this resolved and do online submission?

    I have one more query:
    After I enter the PF number, I get the details bu clicking on a button.
    With the current company’s PF number, I am getting my full name “NARENDRA KUMAR S S”
    But, with previous company, I am getting my shortname “NARENDRA” only.
    So, is this ok? Or should I get the correction done?
    Could this be the reason for not getting the SMS?

    Please suggest.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Narendra

    • Narendra-I am not sure about this portal issue. But if name not matching according to you, then better to change it.

  304. Hi Sir,

    While transferring the PF through online we are getting below error, The DOB information is correct in both Previous and Current employers,

    ”Previous DOB against the entered Previous Member ID does not match the DOB eneterd against the Present Member ID “

    Please help me on this.

    Best regards,
    Harsha

    • Harsha-Rectify the same through your current employer.

      • Yes, I did. But they have told to contact the previous employer and when I matched the DOB everything is correct. Do you have any idea why this error we are getting ?

        • Harsha-Not sure, because I am not a EPFO member.

  305. Is it possible to transfer the PF online from WIPRO trust to EPFO.

    • Pradeep-You can transfer the account from one employer to another but not from WIPRO Trust to EPFO.

      • Yes, I did. But they have told to contact the previous employer and when I matched the DOB everything is correct. Do you have any idea why this error we are getting ?

    Then i thought to re-apply for it via Online portal , however when i was filling the details i saw that my date of leaving DOE was incorrect in the PF database , then i contacted my previous employer for the same and they told me to send PF transfer form to them and they will apply for it. Now when they applied again the Transfer was rejected .

But the status of PF transfer shows rejected and letted is sent.

        • Manoj-They can’t do so. If they not approve then you can complain the same with EPFO.

          • Hi Basavaraj,

            Thanks for the reply.

            I got below reply from my previous employer, Can you suggest.

            Hi Manoj,

            We have checked with our PF consultant and your PF transfer claim request has not come to us because you have not selected previous employer as attestation, hence request you to re-raise and keep the previous employer as attestation. Once when we received the request same will be approved.

            • Manoj-Then you have to raise the request once again.

              • Hi Basavaraj,

                When am raising same request it shows request already in the system so unable to raise again also i cant do chages or delete the original request.

                Can you suggest procedure to reraise/delete/amend.

                Status : My present employer has approved the same

                Thanks,

                • Hi,

                  One more update,since I choose present employer for attestation my claim was not went to my previous employer and he is saying that its not necessary to approve both employer and my present employer PF office will proceed further my claim.

                  Can you advise above process as told to me is correct and if not what i should have to do.

                  Thanks,
                  Manoj

                  • Manoj-If process is allowing it then it is legal as per him. Otherwise, it is required attestation.

      • 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.

        Regards,
        Viswa. S

        • Viswa-Please wait for updating of new passbook. May be it takes time.

          • Thanks for your immediate response 🙂 …

            Sure, i will wait and keep on check this. Having small doubt, does the new PF account automatically will get updated and can i view the passbook for the same. Or do i want to do any procedures/steps to get update the same.

            Regards,
            Viswa. S

            • Viswa-No need of any special procedure. It will get updated itself.

    Please do let me know what to do now?

    Thanks.

    • 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.

  327. My pf transfer claim status is showing as “claim is approved for payment through Cheque. Pmt under process.” from 21/4/15. How long will it take to transfer money to new account ?

    • Srinivasulu-It depends on EPFo, because they not set any timeframe for this.

  328. My previous emploer is showing incorrect DOE in UAN portal. How do i get the same corrected ? Would i be able to transfer pf from previous to new employer with incorrect date or had to rectify before transfer. Also does incorrect DOE affect the PF amount…or any othe issues.

    I am in govt. job and here is provision of PRAN no. for each employee and I heard that this will be a permanent no. and a employee can’t have two PRAN no.
    If they change the job they need to to transfer from one employer to other. Please clarify my following doubt.
    1. Currently I am in Bond period of 5 yr. If I quit my job I wouldn’t get NOC, then without getting NOC from previous employer can I transfer my fund to current employer.

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

      • NOC to join new job. And if I join the new job (govt.) without getting NOC from previous employer would it be possible to shift my existing EPF to the new employer or is it possible to apply for another PRAN (I can bear the loss of current EPF amount).

        • Prakash-NOC from old employer is different to transfering EPF from that employer. Even if you not get NOC it does not matter for EPF transfer.

          • You Mean it is possible to transfer my EPF from previous to current employer without any consent from previous employer is it?? Please clarify what kind of verification or documents will required from previous employer to transfer EPF.

            What will happen if I apply for another PRAN from new employer.

            • Prakash-No it is not required. Because it is not their property or investment.

  344. Hi,

        I have submitted my request on 16- Jan-2015. My request is approved on both employers end.

        My previous employer has my account in Maharashtra and current has it in Karnataka

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

        Thanks for your great help.

  353. Online PF transfer has failed twice. Both the time I am seeing this message while tracking the PF transfer.

    “29 Dec 2014 Claim Form Submitted .

    I have tried initiating the transfer from both current as well as previous employer. Now, my problem is that I am leaving the current organization in few days and will be joining a new organization. My queries are:-
    1. Can I transfer PF from the previous two companies (previous and my current company) when I join the new company?
    2. If no, what are the alternatives I have to transfer the claims from my prev company as well as the current company when I would have shifted to the new company?

    • Ankur-Yes you can transfer all your past EPF accounts to new account.

      • Thank you. Can I withdraw the current PF and transfer the PF from the previous company?

        As in, If I am joining Company 3, Can I withdraw PF from Company 2 and transfer PF from Company 1 to Company 3?

  354. I opted for online PF transfer (10th jan’15) ,also submitted signed acknowledgement same day on 15th jan -15 itself to present employer for attestation. My present employer meanwhile verified (29th Jan’15) However am still waiting for previous employer to attest the claim.Wanted to ask what happen if my previous employer not attested or can’t do anything on it.
    is it any other option?
    I don’t have any contact with my previous employer , I am unable to contact with then.
    Is it any time limit for the employer to take decision on the Claim or not. I friends also have experience with my previous employer that they can’t take any decision only hold the claim and don’t respond.
    please help me

  356. Hi Basavaraj,
    I have transferred my 2nd company’s PF to the 3rd and it has been completed and I can see that in the passbook as transfer in. Now I have applied transfer from 3rd PF account to 4th member id, and the status is approved by the previous employer. My question is, both the accounts employer and employee share along with pension details will be transferred to the 4th PF account, right ?

  357. I joined a new company last year ( Aug’ 2014) and received almost 7 months salaries. Till now the passbook was not uploaded. After raising the request also, it was not uploaded/ created. What is to be done in this case?

    • Mahendrank-What your employer replying to your doubt?

      • I didn’t request anything to the employer. It was not available in the http://www.epfindia.com . After raising request also passbook was not generated. So inquired (to you) about timeline for passbook generation in the website (www.epfindia.com ).

  358. Sir,

    I have drawn my PF amount from previous employer in 2012.
    Now I have realised that my date of exit was wrong in PF database. Kindly let me know how can I correct the same.

    Thanks in advance,
    Sunil.

    • Sunil-When you drawn all amount and closed the EPF account then why you now want to rectify it?

      • Dear Sir,

        Actual my doubt is if Date of exit was wrong in PF database for my previous employer (PF account already closed), is there any problem for me in my future employer for Background check etc.,

        Thanks in advance,
        Sunil

        • Sunil-Background verification will not impact. Because your previous employer might have issued a letter of experience. Then why to worry?

          • Dear Sir,

            If my previous employer is closed in future for some reasons, is there any possibility to check my pf account for background check etc.,

            FYI I don’t have form 16 because my salary was less at that time however I have bank statements.

            Thanks in advance,
            Sunil.

              • Dear Sir,

                Generally when we joined in new organisation, they certainly go for background verification of our previous employment. In that case what my doubt is if my previous organisation was closed, will they check PF account details??

                Thank you,
                Sunil

  359. I had submitted the application for PF transfer on 17th Feb. I could see the claim being approved by previous employer.

    17 Feb 2015 Claim Form Submitted .
    10 Mar 2015 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer

    How long does it take for the transfer once it is approved by the Previous Employer ?
    Do I need to follow up with the current employer regarding any approval ?

    • Did you any answers on this ? Mine is also the same case :
      15 Jan 2015 Claim Form Submitted .
      27 Jan 2015 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .

      Not sure what next.

      • I had actually raised 3 requests, 2 accounts got transferred to my new account within 2 months, although 3rd one is still pending.

        It took 1 month for the PF transfer(to my account) after the status “Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.” for 2 of the completed ones. It’s been more than 2 months now for the 3rd and still no progress. I have raised a grievance in the PF portal, hopefully I should get a response in few days.

        17 Feb 2015 Claim Form Submitted .
        18 Aug 2015 Claim Form Approved by Previous Employer .

    Is there any way to check both my EPS and PF have got transferred or EPS is still pending.

    @Basavaraj,
    Great blog.

    • Karthik-The rule is simple-Your EPS will follow EPF. So no need to worry.

    • Bini-1) Discuss the same with your current employer. 2) You mean to transfer the withdrawal to Bank? If so then they currently not giving either cash or cheque. Instead they transfer to your said account.

    • Noel-To be frank, I am not aware about this procedure error.

      • Hi Basavaraj,

        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.

        I am planning to submit the Form 13 again. Isn’t that the wisest thing I can do? Or is there any other forum?

        Noel

  366. I had submitted my transfer claim through portal. But before the copy reached the company, i got approval from both the employers as per the EPFO site. Now i see 2 pdf’s in each of the transfer claims – do i need to physically print this form and sign it and send it back to the previous employer or this is now automatic?

    • Ashok-If it is already approved then why you take this initiative?

  367. Sir i want to know can we transfer pf online with only Current employer approval without the consent of previous employer specially when previous employer doesn’t want to transfer it

    can you please suggest what needs to be done.

    Thanks in advance

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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

            • Ravinder-Wait for certain time. But not till they accept. You inform them that they have to accept or complain at EPFO portal. Raise the issue at EPFO Grievance Cell.

  374. 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.

    • Brijen- 1) Yes old EPS also follow. 2) I don’t know much about this.

      • Thanks for clearing doubts.

  375. Hi Basavaraj,

    I have submitted online PF transfer on 3 Feb 2015 and my previous Employer approved it on 12 Feb 2015.

    What is the Next Step i have to perform so that my Previous Employer PF amount gets transferred in to my New PF Account.

    Thanks,
    Aleem

    • Aleem-It is already explained above. It will take time to get update in your account.

      • Kindly tell us. We read and could not find exact info. Even i’m also in same situation.

        Thank you in advance
        Bala

        • Balamurugan-what exact information you need?

  376. Hi,

    I had applied for PF transfer online and it has now been approved by my previous employer. What are the next steps in the process which i can expect to see in the status update for my claim?

    Also, i know you mentioned there is no specific time frame for this transfer but is there any ballpark figure for this?

    Thanks

  377. Hi,

  378. 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?

    • G1-It is not written in EPFO process itself. Then how can your previous employer can process it? You answer them that you followed the rule.

  379. I got a message from EP office by saying

    “Form 13(Transfer) Claim ID: XXXXXXXX Approved for payment through Cheque. Pmt under process”

    what is this mean?

    Ill get amount to new PF account of ill get cheque.
    if i get cheque on what address they will send.

    • Nagappa-It is internal transfer. You will not receive any cheque.

      • Basavaraj – Even I received same message. May I know how much time will it take to get the amount after this message? Approximate time ?

  380. Applied for the PF transfer online. The same was approved by my previous employer. Could not see the amount credited into my present employer PF account.

    I opted for online PF transfer (06th Feb’15) ,also submitted signed acknowledgement same day on 6th Feb itself to present employer for attestation. My present employer meanwhile verified (12th Feb’15) However am still waiting for previous employer to attest the claim.Wanted to ask what happen if my previous employer not attested or can’t do anything on it.
    is it any other option?
    I don’t have any contact with my previous employer , I am unable to contact with then.

  394. Hi ,

    I left my previous organization sometime back (8 months) and now I want to transfer the PF to my new organization.
    But when i try to check my EPF balance of previous organization using “member balance information” by entering my previous company EPF Number and Name it is showing “nvalid Input / Member name mismatch” . is this expected? if not how to rectify this? Please advice

    Thanks
    Ajay

    • Ajay-I think it is some clerical error. Suggest you to take the help of new employer.

    • 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.

  395. My PF TRansfer request status is : Your request is In Transit between EPFO Out and In Office.
    Though on phone I received SMS that amount has been credited to your account number one month back. But as far as I can see there is no such amount transferred.

    Can you please suggest what status it is

    But MY name DOB nothing is there some other employee details are listed not mine . What to do now how to change these details to mine .. IS there any pblm now how came my PF account number is linked with all the way to some different employee of my company

    • Sunil-Why can’t you discuss the same with your current employer?

  397. Thank you for your response. And how would I know whether it has been credited or not. is there a way I can check the amount credited or not to check online?

    • Sara-You have status. Keep that record and once they update the passbook then it will reflect it.

  398. Hi,

    Please could you write down the steps through which the claim goes? I submitted an online claim and got it approved the next day from the present employer . Now the status is “Claim Form Approved by Present Employer”. Even after 10 days, I see there is no change in the status after that and I am wondering what would be the next status or where exactly is my claim and how long will it take until it succeeds.

    Thanks & Regards
    Sandeep

    • Sandeep-I already provided the link for the steps of this.
