Pf Form No 13 is the application form that is required when you want to transfer your EPF account from one employer to another. EPF stands for Employees Provident Fund, which is a mandatory savings scheme for employees in India. Every employee has one EPF account and one UAN (Universal Account Number) which is a unique identification number for the account. When you change jobs, you can simply transfer your EPF account from your existing employer to the new employer using Pf Form No 13. This way, you can avoid opening a new EPF account and maintain continuity of service for pension purposes.
Pf Form No 13 contains different fields that you and your new employer should fill in and submit. These details include the following:
Details to be provided by the employee:
Your name (as contained in the EPF database)
Your fathers name. If you are a married woman, you should provide your husbands name
Name and address of the previous employer
EPF account number with the previous employer
