Form-13 is used to transfer your EPF or Pension from one account to another. The new Form will also address automatic EPF account transfer issue on the job change. Automatic transfer of PF account would be possible only if Aadhaar number seeding by the subscriber is completed. If Aadhaar seeding is not complete physical claim Form 13 will be used for transfer of account from the previous organization. This is as per latest EPF circular dated 20th Sept 2017.
What EPF Composite Form F-11 contains?
EPF composite Form F-11 contains personal information such as name, date of birth, gender, e-mail address, mobile number, present employment detail and KYC information.
KYC section contains information about Bank account, IFS code of branch, Aadhaar Number and PAN number. A sample form screenshot of F-11 is given below.
Name and address of previous establishment or trust is a newly introduced field in the new form. This field will be used by EPF office for the verification. In the earlier Form 11 these details were not included and hence form was sent to the previous employer. It seems intervention of the previous employer is removed in the entire process.
