New Delhi :
Planning for retirement is crucial for every working individual, and building a regular fund during your employment is essential.
In India, the best option for accumulating retirement funds is through the Employees Provident Fund (EPF), operated by EPFO.
A portion of your salary is deposited into this fund every month, making it important to know how to check your EPF account balance.
Luckily, there are four easy ways to access this information on your mobile device.
1) Missed Calls
If you have registered and activated your mobile number on the UAN (Universal Account Number) portal and completed KYC for your UAN, you can check your EPF balance by giving a missed call to 9966044425.
2) SMS Method
By registering your UAN with EPFO and sending an SMS from your registered mobile number to 7738299899, you can instantly check your PF balance.
Simply follow the instructions, and you’ll receive your balance details promptly.
3) EPFO Online Portal
The new EPFO online portal offers a convenient way to view your PF passbook. To access this facility, visit the EPFO website and navigate to the “Our Services” section.
Choose the “For Employees” option and then click on “Member Passbook.” Enter your UAN and password to view your passbook and check your balance.
4) UMANG Mobile Application
The government has introduced the UMANG app to simplify the process of checking your PF balance. Besides viewing your passbook, the app allows you to easily raise and track claims related to your EPF.
With these four methods readily available on your mobile device, you can effortlessly stay informed about your EPF balance and plan for a secure retirement.
Take advantage of these online services to manage your EPF account efficiently.
