PF Account to be Automatically Transferred on Job Change in Just 3 Days

PF Transfer

There’s good news for all Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) subscribers. Now, their PF proceeds can be transferred on changing jobs automatically. This rule will be put into effect from the next month. In short, a hassle free paperless process has been put in place to make it more convenient. The announcement was made by Mr. V P Joy, Chief Provident Fund Commissioner. He has been pressing for several initiatives in the EPFO to ensure it is made more worker-friendly. Moreover, the Commissioner added that a premature closure of accounts is one of the key challenges, the EPFO is looking to address by improving its services. He also said, “Whenever there is a change in jobs, a lot of accounts are closed; then the employees restart their account later on”. Reaffirming the importance of Aadhaar, the Chief Commissioner said that a biometric authentication card has been made compulsory for enrollment. A PF is going to be the permanent account and the worker can retain the same account for social security, he said.

PF Transfer to be Made in Just 3 Days

In case you change your job, the PF transfer can be made in just three days. That too, without any application. This is what the EPFO is stressing on particularly. So, if you have an Aadhaar Card, you can get the PF transferred without any application if you switch your location. “The process will be implemented very soon”, added Mr. V P Joy.

Currently, it takes around 2-3 months for the PF balance to get transferred even after the necessary documents are submitted.
