  • What is the solution to this PF transfer error: "Details of previous acc. are different than present acc. Hence claim request cannot be processed"?

Most probably your previous company has not marked your exit in the UAN portal using their employer account.

To verify the same just go to view tab > service history
If you see the DOE EPF and DOE EPS is unavailable then approach your previous employer with proof (Screenshot or pdf report) and then ask them to mark it.

If even after repeated requests they don’t do it, you can always register a complain in EPF site. But make sure to do it after you are done with all other modes of communication with your previous employer.

Now if the issue is not regarding DOE (verify as mentioned before) then your present employer must have registered some information which is mismatching with your existing KYC or employee records. Don’t worry, as your present employer can fix that from their end, so just convey the issue to your present employer and they will be able to give the resolution required.
