Hello friend,Provident Fund is almost compulsory in every company so when you change the job, transferring your EPF money is really tedious work due to lots of paper work and dependency on previous and current employers. If you are in IT then might you have done this paperwork twice or more. 🙂
But now you can easily transfer EPF amount online without much dependency on employers because Employee’s Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) have provided a new online facility portal by which you can file an Online Transfer Claim Application. But to avail this facility following are some per-requisites.
- You must be registered EPF Member
- All your employers have registered digital signatures of the authorized signatories with EPFO.
If you have not registered yet you can do it by visiting here.
It will open a form like below.
You need to fill up the form with authorization PIN(which u get on your registered mobile number).
Try to submit your application in working time i.e. 9 AM – 6 PM as some peoples have faced problem of not getting authorization key by SMS on their mobile when they had tried to submit it in odd timing.
Once you have registered you need to check your eligibility which will have some information like below.
In above form you need to fill the information related to your EPF Account with previous and current employer. If both the employers have registered their signatories then it will show that you are eligible if not it will show the message accordingly.
You can check step by step process of filing online transfer claim in below PDF provided on EPFO’s website.
Hope you liked this post. Do share this information with your friends they might struggling with the paperwork to get their EPF amount transferred.
