Accepted by Employer Pending at Field Office: What Does It Mean?

EPF members who have recently applied for modification or correction of basic details at UAN member portal can find this status that accepted by employer pending at field office. The reason for getting this message is your basic details modification request was accepted by your employer, but it is pending at PF field office. Once it is approved by the EPF field officer then the details of EPF members will be corrected. The second case is during PF transfer.

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.

  1. Hi,
    My name is Anjaneyulu. I made a transfer of PF from my previous employer account to current account through online. My previous employer has transferred the amount, it is maintained by trust. Since 2nd December the status shows accepted by field officer but my passbook has not reflected?. It is 15 days the same status. What should I do?

    • If it is a trust, you cant check your passbook in EPFO, there should be another trust portal with your company where you can check your pf.

    • In general PF transfer claims will settle within 20 days.
      You have to know why your claim is getting delayed, better register a complaint on the EPF grievance portal, so that you will know the reasons for the delay.
      Once you know the reason then you can solve it.
