EPF Form 11 is a declaration form which has to be submitted by an employee when taking up new employment in an organization which offers EPF Scheme (Employees Provident Fund). This form contains basic information regarding the employee like – name, date of birth, contact details, previous employment details, KYC (Aadhar, Bank account, PAN etc) details.
As of now, when you are joining a new employer, and if you have contributed to EPF in your previous employment then you have to submit both Form No. 11 (Declaration form) and Form No. 13 (for PF transfer from old EPF account to you new EPF account).
The EPFO has recently (23-Sep-2016) issued a notification on new EPF Form 11. The new Form 11 is a one page declaration form and a simplified version of the existing Form 11.
Latest update (27-Sep-2017) : The EPFO has released a revised Form – 11. This new Composite Declaration Form replaces the existing Form-11 and can also be used for automatic transfer of EPF account on job switch. For more details, kindly visit this link and ignore the details given in this article.
As per the notification, the Declaration Form (New Form No. 11) will also replace Form No. 13 in all such cases where existing EPF member makes a request for transfer of his fund availing the facility of UAN (Universal Account Number).
So, if you have been allotted a UAN number and your KYC details have been verified by your previous employer, you can just submit new EPF Form 11 to your new employer. You can access this new EPF Form 11 through UAN member portal. There is no need to submit Form No. 13.
