    I joined my current organisation in March, 2016 and my employer is an exempted organisation. At the time of joining, I didn’t put my earlier PF and UAN details because I didn’t know it then at the time of joining. My employer didn’t then submit my form 11 to EPF office as it is exempted and therefore I do not have UAN linked. Now, it been almost 1.5 years and I wish to get my old active UAN linked ? Can my employer submit form 11 now with my corrected details? What will be the repercussions if form 11 is submitted 18 months after the date of joining ?

    I was not having a PF membership in the previous organization and was given the PF membership and UAN ID in the present organization which I had left two months ago. I had applied for PF withdrawal through online mode using form 19 and Form 10c and aadhar authentication was done by using OTP. Now I was reading comments that Form 11 should be submitted. Please clarify me whether I need to submit Form 11 to the regional PF Field office to get the claim processed.
