How to Check PF Balance?

Provident Fund
21 Oct 2022

The Provident Fund scheme provides pension and insurance funds, therefore, staying up to date with the provident fund amount will help the employees with their financial planning.

Today, in the era of digitalization, checking your PF balance is as easy as it gets; you can check it via SMS, missed calls and online (via the EPFO portal or from the Umang app).

1. Balance Check via SMS

If employees have their universal account number or UAN registered with EPFO, they can check their PF balance by simply sending an SMS.

All they need to do is type in a text message “EPFOHO <UAN> <First Three Letters of The Language of Their Choice>" and send it to 7738299899.

For example, if a member with UAN 122333444455 wants to know their PF balance in English, they need to type “EPFOHO 122333444455 ENG” and send it to the number mentioned above. They will receive a response within minutes showing their PF balance.

This SMS service is also available in other Indian languages like Bengali, Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Punjabi and Gujarati. 

2. Online Balance Check and via App

The PF passbook can also be viewed via the EPFO portal by visiting the site.

After the site opens, the members need to go to ‘Our services’ option and then select ‘For employees’. After that, they need to click on the 'Services' and select the ‘Member passbook’ option. The PF account holder will have to type their UAN and password to view their balance.

They can also take a print of the passbook for further references. The government has also launched the Umang app for the same purpose. Employees can now view their PF passbook, raise claims, and track the status of the claims via the app.

3. Balance Check via Missed Call

Another method of checking the PF passbook is by dialing the number 011-22901406 from the mobile number that has been registered with the employee’s UAN.

The call is automatically disconnected after two rings and a text message is received with the details of the provident fund account and the last entry that was made.

This process is free of charge.
