Introduction of Composite Declaration Form (F-11) & New Transfer Process under EPF Act 1952

Dear Employers,

To streamline the process of PF transfer in the Unified portal 2.0 for both member & employer as both were facing issues; with regards to the same, EPFO has introduced a new Form No.11 which is renamed as Composite Declaration Form 11(F-11) which is linked to the new transfer Process.

The Central Provident Fund Commissioner by exercising the powers conferred under para 36(7) read along with the provisions of para 34 and 57 of EPF Scheme, 1952 and para 24 of Employees' Pension Scheme, 1995 has ordered the introduction of Composite Declaration Form (F-11) by replacing the existing New Form-11 and the same is enclosed as Annexure

Note: It is important for all employers to introduce the following changes in the joining formalities.

  1. Circular Composite Declaration Form (F-11)
  2. New Composite Declaration Form 11

Revised procedure for Transfer of Accounts

New transfer process must be introduced which will automatically link with the New Declaration form


  • In case the employee already has a UAN, the employer will be required to enter his/her details through registration of member functionalities on the employer's portal. Since there have been cases of wrong linking of current employment of member with a UAN that does not pertain to him/her, it is necessary for the employer to provide the following data:
  1. Name of the member
  2. Aadhaar No. of the member
  3. Previously allotted UAN number
  4. Date of Birth
  • In case, the earlier UAN was Aadhaar linked and verified, the declaration by the employer of transfer request made by the employee in Form-11 will trigger an auto transfer process which will transfer the accumulations against the member’s previous PF ID to the new PF ID.

  • Form No.13 is not required to be submitted in such cases.

  • An SMS informing the subscriber about the proposed auto-transfer will be sent on his registered mobile number. Auto transfer will be completed only after:

    1. The member does not request to stop the proposed auto-transfer either online, or through the employer or at the nearest EPFO office within 10 days of receiving the SMS
    2. The first contribution by the present employer is deposited and reconciled
  • In case the earlier UAN was not linked with Aadhaar OR UAN was Aadhaar linked but not verified or EPF transfer from or to an exempted establishment:

The member must apply for transfer in Form-13 as the existing procedure for physical transfer would be followed.

Note: Failure to furnish Aadhaar will lead to difficulty in transferring old information into the new account and therefore all employers are advised to ensure that the Aadhaar number of the member/transferee is filled in the EPFO portal.
