EPF stands for Employees’ Provident Fund. The government of India manages all its operations. If you are an EPF account holder then you must know how to check your EPF account balance via missed call or SMS.
Let’s check the steps.
Check EPF Balance Via SMS:
In order to check the EPF account balance, you must simply type “EPFOHO UAN LAN” and send it to 7738299899 from your registered mobile number. Avoid including the quotation marks as shown above.
EPF Balance Check Via Missed Call:
To check the EPF account balance via phone call, you may simply give a missed call on 011-22901406 from your registered mobile number.
Once you make the call, it will itself disconnect after ringing and then you will receive an SMS about your EPF account details.
EPF Balance Check Through Online portal:
To check EPF balance through the online portal, you must log in to EPFO’s member passbook portal using Universal Account Number(UAN).
1. If you have UAN, move to the next step. In case, if you don’t have UAN, visit the Member e-Sewa portal and hit the “Know Your UAN” link. Check for activation. If the UAN is not activated, you can activate it by following the “Activate UAN” link just above the “Know Your UAN” link.
2. Then, move to the EPF passbook portal or simply access the same link using the Member e-Sewa portal as well.
3. Once you are done with the above steps, enter your UAN and password.
4. Click on “Download/View Passbook” from the EPF passbook portal. Also, you can take a printout.
