If you work, a portion of your salary is deposited into the Provident Fund each month. It amounts to 12% of the basic salary. Your employer also deposits the same sum. However, 8.33 percent of this is put into the Employee Pension Scheme, or EPS, and the final 3.67 percent goes into the Employee Pension Fund. An individual can quickly check the account balance if he knows his UAN or Universal Account Number. To do this, sign in to the EPFO's official website. For your information, the provident fund currently earns 8.1 percent interest.
How to check your Provident Fund account balance?
There are five different techniques to determine the balance of the provident fund account. The first method entails using your Universal Account Number to log in to the EPFO website. Each employee has a specific UAN number. Even after switching jobs and companies, it remains unchanged. After logging in, select Services from the menu and then click the "For Employee" option. For the account balance, click the Member Passbook option here.
On which number to make a missed call?
PF subscribers can give a missed call to the 9966044425 number from their registered number to find their account balance. After two rings, a call to this number will be automatically disconnected. If the Universal Account Number is connected to the bank account, Aadhaar, and PAN, the message will also reveal how much was paid into the PF account in the previous month. Every time money is deposited into your account, EPFO immediately sends information about it to the registered mobile number.
On which number to SMS?
If your UAN is active, you can send a message "EPFOHO UAN" from the registered phone number to 7738299899. This service is delivered in Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Marathi, Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Bengali, in addition to English. Type three English letters from your language after "EPFOHO UAN." For example, if you want the response in your native tongue. For Bengali, use BEN, and for Gujarati, use GUJ.
