EPF Online : Easy steps to check EPF balance online
EPFO has launched a facility to enable its subscribers to view their updated accounts online on real time basis without waiting for their annual PF account slips.
We did a quick check how the facility works and whether it really does or is it ending up with an error-on-page message. And the result was satisfactory.
Just you need to follow below mentioned steps to get your EPF details.
Step 1: Keep your EPFO account number handy. It is mentioned on your salary slip.
Step 2: Click the link Check Your EPF balance on the EPFO website, http://www.epfindia.gov.in
Step 3: Select the state where your PF office is situated.
Step 4: Select the appropriate EPFO regional office. Knowing this is no rocket science. Your PF number is an alpha-numeric number and the first two letters stand for regional office.
For instance, if the your PF number is TN/MAS/31309/1234 then choose TN as regional office code.
Step 5: Fill the online form with your name (as it appears on salary slip), your mobile number and your PF number. In the first box, you need to key in seven digits. So, in the example cited above, the set of number has only 5 digits, 31309. Here you have to add 00 in the first two boxes. Next box, fill in the three digit establishment code or leave it blank if you don’t have one.
Finally, the account number 1234 in the last box, and click submit.
You will receive an SMS with your EPFO account balance, if your records are updated with EPFO office.
Keep in mind that the account balance is updated up to 31/3/2013.
