When we change the Job, what is recommended generally on PF? Better to withdraw OR transfer to next to be organization? In case of need of money, I think better to withdraw, but if money is not needed then? Does it also depend on no. of years we spent in current organization?

    Dear Ashal
    what is E-E-E & E-E-T status?
    Kindly elobrate more for same.

      Jwalant, I think E means Exempt and T is for Tax, meaning withdrawing PF would make it taxable.

      Ashal, correct me if I am wrong.

    Dear Jnikumbh, no matter you work for 1 Y or 10Y with an employer, it’s always beneficial to transfer your PF to new employer due to simple thing. The Amount is under E-E-E status till it’s in PF corpus. The moment, it’s out of PF corpus, it ‘ll go into E-E-T status.

    thanks
