While applying for PF transfer we need to choose either previous employer or present employer to approve it. So first your employer will approve your PF transfer request, after that your PF transfer request has to be approved by your PF office. In that case, also you will find this message.

    • While PF transfer process only PF amount will transfer, pension amount will transfer but will not be seen in new PF passbook, but you can withdraw it whenever you leave your present job.
      So once again check your recent company’s PF passbook and still if the amount was not transferred then raise a complaint on the EPF grievance portal, they will solve your problem.

  7. Hiii Good afternoon Sir/Ma’am

    Note: previous employer is EPF account and current employer is trust.

    • Maybe your present employer declined it, they will ask for annexure K from your previous PF account.
      You can get your annexure K on the UAN member portal or by raising a request on the EPF grievance portal. But before that ask your present employer about this issue.
      (Annexure K is a PDF form that consists of your previous company PF details)
