    Dear Sir

    I have a rather peculiar situation(and i must apologize for such a long message!)

    I started working in a Delhi company in 1999 where there was a provision for EPF account. After working for 2 years, i left that firm, and then worked on freelance projects. In 2003 i moved overseas, and i completely forgot about the EPF account. I moved back to India in late-2011 and have been working on a freelance basis. While going through my papers, i found that my account was there with EPF, but it has been deactivated since 2009 . I wanted to withdraw the money but as my ex-employer was not available now, and the old records could not be found in that company, nothing could be done.
    From January 2016, i will be starting a new job where there would be contributions to EPF

    Now my question is, can i use the same EPF account to start making contributions?
    will the new job contributions activate my deactivated EPF account?
    or will i need to start a new EPF account?

    I must add that i m an Australian citizen(by naturalization) and i hold Indian OCI card(that allows me to live indefinitely in India and operate financially like any Indian citizen?

    My apologies for such a long post. but i thought i needed to make my situation clear to you

    Thanks in advance
