Closing EPF account
A EPF account cannot be opened and closed like a normal Bank account.
It can be closed only in either of two ways
a) When the Employee is no more (Dead)
b) When the Employee has left he job with the Employer
And now with UAN being issued for all the employees it very difficult to close EPF accounts as every new Employer will ask for the UAN from your previous Employer as it’s being made mandatory.
