In case both of his employers – previous and present - have registered digital signatures on the Online Transfer Claim Portal (OTCP) portal of EPFO, the member can submit his claim to either of the employers for attestation. If the member details pertainin g to previous employment are completely available in EPFO database, the member can submit the claim through either of the employers and the process for settlement would involve similar steps after the claim has been attested by the employer.

It may be noted that in case, the member details pertaining to previous employment are not completely available in EPFO database, although the member can submit the claim through either of the employers, the process for settlement of claim through previous employer would take relatively less time as all his member details with the previous employment would get verified along with the attestation of the claim by previous employer. In such cases, if the claim has been submitted through the present employer, the verification task of the member details with the previous employment would be sent to the previous employer in addition to the claim attestation by the present employer, which might take relatively more time.
