    • 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)
