Without having to go to the PF office or ask the employer, there are several ways to check the PF balance. Here are 5 ways to check the balance of your EPF (employee provident fund).
Knowing the balance of the Provident Fund (PF) account is a crucial financial activity that an employee may wish to perform at the start of a new fiscal year. The employer and employee each make a fixed monthly contribution to the FP account of 12% of the employee’s base salary, respectively. Without having to go to the PF office or ask the employer, there are several ways to check the PF balance. Here are 5 ways to check the balance of your EPF (employee provident fund).
How to check PF balance from EPFO website:
Click on “Member Passbook” in the section for employees on the EPFO website. By authenticating yourself with your UAN and your password, you can consult the PF booklet. In addition to the opening and closing balances, the breakdown of employee and employer contributions will be displayed. The amounts of PF transfers and accrued PF interest will also be displayed. If your UAN is associated with multiple provident fund numbers, they will all be displayed. You need to click on the relevant member ID to get the balance of this PF account.
How to check PF balance from Unified Portal:
The provident fund balance can also be viewed by opening the PF passbook after logging into the unified portal with your UAN and password. FP contributions for several exercises are available for consultation.
How to check PF balance from SMS:
To check the EPF balance on a mobile device, use the SMS service. You need to send SMS keyword EPFOHO UAN ENG to 7738299899 to use the service. Sending SMS will be helpful to know your PF balance without UAN.
Texting 7738299899 is that easy, but make sure you use your registered mobile number. After sending the SMS, one will receive the most recent PF contribution along with the member’s balance information that is unique to your KYC information.
How to check PF balance from missed call:
Use your phone to check your EPF balance; you won’t even need your UAN for this. To do this, you must use the EPFO’s Missed Call feature. You just need to make a missed call from your registered mobile phone at 011-22901406. The call is disconnected after two rings, and the user then receives a message displaying his PF balance. The fact that this service is free and accessible on non-smartphones is important. As an employee, however, you must ensure that your UAN is connected to your bank account, along with your Aadhaar and PAN numbers and mobile number, all of which must be registered in the Unified Portal.
How to check PF balance from UMANG app:
The Unified Mobile Application for New-age Governance (UMANG) application can be used to obtain EPF information such as PF balance, claim status, Know Your Customer (KYC) status, etc.
