My previous employer was HCL, for which EPF accounts are maintained in trust and DOE is 28th May 2015. I have submitted my online transfer claim to the Polaris EPF account by August 2016 which is in payment process as per claim status.
Meanwhile I have left my job at polaris on 28th Feb 2017 and joining TCS on 15th March 2017. When I chased about my transfer, HCL will dispatch the cheque by next week. So is that possible that my Polaris EPF account can accept the cheque and credit the amount in the EPF account or will that no more accept any transactions?
Could you please advise.
Yes, I am a UAN holder and both the EPF accounts are linked to the same UAN
Whether you are currently UAN holder or not?
Yes, I am a UAN holder and both the accounts are linked to the same UAN
Then if accounts transferred its OK..otherwise they are all under the umbrella of one UAN…Your current employer has to accept the cheque and deposit with EPFO. Otherwise, raise the issue with EPFO Grievance Cell Online.
Thank you for your advice.
