pf accumulation

Steering Committee Member

I worked for an MNC from 1982 to 1994 (12 years). After that I worked for 3 other companies and spent a substantial portion of my time based in UK. Once I returned to India, I started following up for my PF dues. I found that this MNC had failed to transfer my PF accumulations to the next company. Further, they had merged with another MNC to form a new company.

Given the long passage of time I don't have any records which give my PF number. I asked the company but they say they don't have such old records. I filed an RTI with the PF department to find out my PF number but they asked me to contact the company only.

What should I do now? The company has raised its hands and the amount is too large for me to ignore.

Look into your salary slip and PF transfer form submitted by you. Both must be having PF number.

Employer should have submitted PF forms to EPFO within 5 days and should have supplied the acknowledgment issued by EPFO for you.

 

You may go thru a very informative article at:

http://www.onemint.com/2012/10/15/epf-e-passbook-check-your-employees-provident-fund-balance-online/

In case you do not know the EPFO office under which your company is complying or which is applicable to your account, then you can use either of these establishment search facilities to get the details of the office and also the code number of the company – Search Establishment Code – 1 or Search Establishment Code – 2

Establishments under old Office Code – It is EPFO office code and works state-wise
Establishments under Office – It is EPFO office code and works EPFO office-wise
Show all estt. under this PIN Code – It will show all the companies under the entered Pin Code
Old Office Code – It is EPFO office code and works state-wise
Establishment Code – It is your company’s code

Step # 6 – Once the state EPFO office is selected, you need to enter your EPF Account Number which would look something like this one – GN/GGN/28544/999 or GN/GGN/0028544/000/0000999.

Understand your EPF Account Number

GN is the Region Code.
GGN is the Office Code.
0028544 is the Establishment/Company Code and cannot be greater than 7 digits.
000 is the Extension Code and in most cases it is 000.
0000999 is the Account Number.

Now enter your name exactly as per EPF records, a six-alphabet unique text character and click on the “Get PIN” button to again get the four-digit Authorization PIN on your mobile. You would again receive a PIN on your mobile. The message would read like this “To download Member Passbook from Member Portal please enter PIN XXXX”
