Visit the EPFO website by clicking on this link: https://unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/memberinterface
You must enter your UAN and password to log in once you reach the portal website.
After logging in, select “One Member One EPF account (Transfer request)” under “online services.”
Check your personal information and ‘PF account’ information for your current job (For the company you work at at the moment.)
Select “Get details” from the menu. When you do this, the information about your prior employment’s PF account will show up.
Next, decide which employer will sign the attesting documents—either the present employer or the former one.
Select “Get OTP” to get the OTP sent to the mobile number you registered with your UAN.
Enter the OTP in the space given and submit:
After submission, you have to wait. Your PF account will be legally transferred once the relevant documents have been attested by your new employer or your old one. Remember that within 10 days of submitting the online form, the employee must also provide the self-attested copy of the PF transfer request to the chosen company.
Additionally, this needs to be submitted in PDF format. The transfer to the new account with the present employer is then made after the employer digitally approves the PF transfer request. A tracking ID that can be used to trace the application online is generated. In certain circumstances, you might need to download the Transfer Claim i.e Form 13. Later, submit the form to the employer to finish the process.
