Note: It is important for all employers to introduce the following changes in the joining formalities.
Revised procedure for Transfer of Accounts
New transfer process must be introduced which will automatically link with the New Declaration form
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:
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.
