Transfer your PF Account: The Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) provides an online facility for the transfer of Provident Fund (PF). In such a situation, you can transfer the money from your previous company’s PF account to the existing account. Let’s know the whole process of transferring money.
If you want to transfer the amount of your provident fund (PF) from the previous company to a new account opened by the existing employer, you can do it from the comfort of your home. The Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) also provides an online facility to transfer PF. However, since the arrival of the Universal Account Number (UAN), all the accounts of the employee remain in one place, but the money remains in different accounts. So it is important that you share your UAN with the new company first. Later transfer the money from the old account to your new account. To do this process online, you have to follow some easy steps.

>>First of all visit the Unified Member Portal of EPFO https://unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in/memberinterface/. Log in here using the Universal Account Number (UAN) and password.
