How to check your EPF balance: Via EPF Portal, Umang App, SMS, Missed Call

  • You don’t have to wait for your employer to share the PF statement at the end of the year to know the PF balance.
  • You can check the balance using the Umang App, EPFO portal, EPFO app, sending an SMS, or by just giving a missed call.

Every month your employer transfers some amount into your EPF account along with your contribution. The EPF passbook reflects the total amount in your EPF account along with the details of the monthly contributions made by you and your employer. Some amount is also deposited in the Employees’ Pension Scheme or EPS, which will be shown separately in the EPS column.

Earlier, employees had to wait for their employer to furnish their EPF statement at the end of every year but now they can easily check their EPF balance both online and offline.

There are two online methods :

  • EPF Portal
  • Umang app on mobile

The offline methods available for the customer are :

  • SMS
  • Missed call service

Let us find out how to check EPF balance in detail –

I. Using the Umang app

II. Using the EPFO portal
