Yes, it is likely that one’s PF accounts will get automatically transferred from one organization to another when the individual switches jobs. However, this has started just yet.

EPFO, the main body dealing with provident funds, is working on testing the automation of EPF transfer. While the process is still being tested on a pilot basis, it is expected that the process will be rolled out some time next year.

So, as soon as your employer files for your monthly EPF return, the PF balance from your previous employer will be automatically transferred using the UAN.
