New Delhi: Employees Provident Fund, sometimes referred to as PF or EPF, is a savings account for members of the Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO). Each month, each employee and the employer contribute 12% of their basic income to these PF accounts as a lump sum contribution. The EPFO, for example, announces the PF interest rate every year. Employees have four options to check the balance of their EPF accounts.
PF balance by SMS
To check your PF balance via SMS text “EPFOHO UAN ENG” to number 7738299899. The latest PF contribution and total PF balance will be sent to you via SMS. This method will also allow you to check your PF balance without providing your UAN or if you do not have internet access. However, you need to make sure that the SMS is only sent from the registered phone number.
FP report via the EPFO website
You also have the option of checking the balance via the EPFO website.
- On the EPFO website, go to the employee section and click on “Member Passbook”.
- Use your UAN and password to log in.
- The PF passbook will then appear, along with the PF interest earned.
If your UAN is linked to more than one PF account, you will be able to access the details of each account. You must click on the appropriate Member ID to check the balance.
PF balance via Umang APP
Simply download the UMANG (Unified Mobile Application for New-age Governance) app from Play Store or App Store to check your PF balance. You can also search for EPF information such as claim status and Know Your Customer (KYC) status.
PF balance via missed call
To check your balance using the missed call technique, dial 011-22901406 from your registered phone number and leave a message. The method is free and can be used by both smartphone and non-smartphone users. Users are not required to provide their UAN.
All you need to do now is to link your phone number to your bank account, Aadhaar number and PAN.
