I have an EPF account that was opened in 2013 through Adecco, since Jan 2016 I am without a job. I am trying to withdraw the PF amount. My query is –
Question 1) Once I withdraw the amount will the PF account be closed.
Question 2) I will be showing a fake experience of 5 years in an IT industry for E.g., Veronix software (2013 to 2017) and try to join in a company. I will mention that EPF account not opened in Veronix Software to the new employer. Once I join a new company will the new employer come to know about my old PF account details, when the new employer tries to open a PF account. (my old PF account was not linked with Aadhar card, I got Aadhar card only in march 2017 and provided Aadhar card details to the old employer for the purpose of PF amount withdrawal). Will the new employer know about the PF account, UAN number when he searches through the Aadhar card no.?
Question 3) Can I take the help of PF agents to speed up the PF amount withdrawal as there is a delay in getting the PF amount into my account? Is there a chance of fraud from the PF agents if I provide them my PF account number?
If you have old UAN which is linked to Aadhaar, then in all probability your new employer may come to know about old UAN.
But I am not sure when they will come to know or try to check or track your old UAN. Because even if they do not come to know NOW, then currently EPFO is working on merging such all multiple UAN numbers linked to a single employer.
Hence, it is hard for me to say and answer WHETHER, WHEN and HOW.
