[How to] check PF balance online in India (5 ways – UAN, SMS, Missed Call, App)


EPFO (Employees Provident Fund Organisation) provides option to check you PF balance online. Once you enter your details, you will get your balance via SMS on your mobile number.

Whether you want to check your PF balance for Delhi,  Gurgaon,  Noida, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Gujarat, Mumbai, Andhra pradesh, Pune, Karnataka, Kolkata etc,  you can use the steps below to get your balance via SMS.

Please note that some big organizations have their own PF trust and they do not keep money with EPFO. In such cases, you cannot check the balance online by using EPFO portal.  You need to contact your HR to know your PF balance.

How much money goes in your PF Account?

  • Employee Contribution – 12% of your Basic
  • Employer Contribution – 12% of your Basic ( Out of this 8.33% goes into EPS upto Rs 541 per month)
  • Interest on both the contribution

You can check your PF balance online using steps below. 

Steps to check your PF account balance online

The best and easiest way to check your PF balance online or via SMS  is below

1. Check PF monthly passbook:

EPFO has a dedicated portal to check the PF balance passbook. You need to have your UAN login details.

Prevously, you could check the monthly passbook on UAN portal or Member portal. But Now EPFO has disabled this feature under UAN portal and you can check PF passbook on the separate PF passbook link only


As per EPFO Portal to check Passbook:

  • This facility is to view the Member Passbook for the members registered on the Unified Member Portal.
  • Passbook will be available after 6 Hours of registration at Unified Member Portal.
  • Changes in the credentials at Unified Member Portal will be effective at this Portal after after 6 Hours.
  • Passbook will have the entries which has been reconciled at the EPFO field offices.
  • Passbook facility not be available for the Exempted Establishments Members / Settled Members / InOperative Members.

2. Missed Call Facility:

Call at 01122901406 –  Members registered on the UAN portal may get their details available with EPFO by giving a missed call to 01122901406 from their registered Mobile number. If the UAN of the member is seeded with any one of the Bank A/C number, AADHAAR and PAN the member will also get details of last contribution and PF Balance. The Missed Call service is intended to further ease the process since only a missed call at 01122901406, at no cost to the member, would provide him the details.

3. Short Code SMS Send to 07738299899:

 The facility is similiar to Missed Call facility. UAN registered Members may know their KYC details available with EPFO by sending an SMS at 7738299899. The content of the SMS is EPFOHO UAN at 7738299899. is the first three characters of the preferred language. The facility is available in English, Hindi, Punjabi, Gujrati, Marathi, Kannad, Telugu, Tamil, Malyalam and Bengali. For Example if member intends to recieve the SMS in Telugu then he/she will send EPFOHO UAN TEL at 7738299899. EPFO sends the details of the member available with EPFO.If the UAN of the member is seeded with any one of the Bank A/C number, AADHAAR and PAN the member will also get details of last contribution and PF Balance. Facility is available in 10 different Indian Languages.  How to check PF balance via sending SMS short code ( You can send SMS to 77382 99899 in prescribed format)

4. EPFO Mobile APP:  

EPFO services are now available on the UMANG (Unified Mobile APP for New Governance). The UMANG APP can be downloaded by giving a missed call 9718397183. The APP can also be downloaded from UMANG website or from the play/app stores.

5. Get monthly alerts automatically via SMS

If you are registered at UAN portal, then you will automatically get monthly alerts for your PF balance and status. It takes 45-60 days to get SMS for first month when you first register for UAN portal.  Check How to activate or check your UAN Status online

6. Other Details

If the account is showing as Inoperative

      In that case your new PF number should start with PU/PUN/0122409/000

      Your old PF number should be MH/BAN/0048475/000/0596054

      • Hi Vivek,

        First of all thanks for your swift reply.
        I am working Deloitte Consulting Pvt. Ltd. and have followed the suggested steps.
        This time I am getting this statement “Request for UAN for this member Id XXX is already under process. (through ECR) ”
        Please tell me what should I do next!

        Souhreed Datta

        • It seems that the UAN number is not yet allotted to you. In the meantime make sure that PF deduction is shown on your payslip and you have your PF number (normally on the payslip).
          Check EPFO site again after couple of months. You can also followup with your HR that the account is not visible online & UAN number is not yet allotted.

          • Thanks Vivek!

            Yes the PF deduction and my PF number are there in my payslip.
            I’ll check with the HR team once!

But yet I don’t have any update. And online it says no records found. Please help me.

  93. Hi vivek once again. ..pf number was provided by HR and was not mentioned on my payslips. My HR had also provided me with a UAN NO. 100021225093.

  94. Hi Vivek… as per the number provided by the company HR the pf number is correct. The last section of the number the HR provided me was 1500. I left the company in July this year and have submitted my pf papers on 26th October. Kindly assist me

  95. Yes vivek my employer is Ameriprise India but even now when I check my pf claim status with the pf number you asked me to try with it still says no records found. Please help

  106. Hi Sir,

    I was working in Company1 for 5 years and resigned 4 months back and joined Company2(Current Employer for 3 months). I resigned from Company2 and will move to Company3 sooner.

    But i did not tranfer my PF from Company1 to Company2.

    Can I tranfer both the PF from Company1 and Company2 to Company3 after joining?
    Do I have to do anything now?
    Any restrictions on number of days for PF transfer?

    My Company1 PF : TNMAS00313090000094297 -> I am able to check the account.
    My Company2 PF : MHBAN00484750000422190 -> I am not able to check this account Online. Pls help me. It says, no info is available.

    Thanks in advance.

    • 1. Yes you can transfer both PF directly to your 3rd company
      2. You donot need to do anything now. just fill the PF transfer form in new company
      3. For the company , you are not able to check PF, it may be possible that data is not updated as you joined for a short time.

      • Thanks a ton for your response sir.

        I joined the current company before 3 months. They maintain the PF with them separately. I got the PF Account number from them and still couldn’t find it in the portal. I am following it up with them.

        Thank you sir.

  107. Hi, I left my job in Aug 2014 after working for 1.8 years in an organisation. And i have some money in my PF which i want to invest. Is it a good idea to not withdraw the PF? Will it give any returns? Or please suggest some better alternatives to invest. Thanks

    • Hi Karan, if you are currently working n another company, then you can get it transferred to new PF account, Normally PF is giving you interest of 8.5% tax free.

      if you withdraw, then you can invest in options like Equity mutual funds for long term.

    • PF Withdrawal can take from 1 week to few months (depending on the HR approval / EPFO office etc)

      Regarding name mismatch, you should get in touch with your HR to confirm the name submitted in PF return file.

    • If your company is Mahindra 2 wheelers, then your new PF account should be PU/PUN/0301485/000/0000389

      Also, It is better to check with your HR, the exact name uploaded in PF return. mention that you are getting name mismatch error.

    • 1) Is your company name – THE HOST RESTAURANT

      Check with your HR whether PF is maintained by company trust or EPFO. if company trust, the balance will be only available through HR & not on EPFO site.

      Also confirm the exact name in their PF returns.

      It may be possible that your company has a private PF trust (and not maintained by EPFO). In that case, only your HR can give you the details. Please check with your HR.

  140. Dear Mr. Vivek,
    Hope you are doing well,

    I have a query regarding my daughter’s PF Acc number. I have got the est. code number of the organisation “River Dale School, Varanasi) but not able to get PF details. Request you to help on the same.
    Est Code: UP/ VNS /0018142/000

    Thank you,

    Dr. Abhaya Kumar Jain.

        • Hi Mohit, the only way to get your PF number is to contact your HR. Ideally, you should have it already on your payslip / Form 16.

          • If I change 4 companies, there will be 4 PF numbers ? Why not government link all PF accouo on the basis of PAN ? There must be a simple way to retrieve money from all 4 PF accounts in one go.

          • You will be pleased to know that government is planning to have an Universal account number for PF. As number of PF members are way large beyond number of PAN holders.

            If you change companies, the best option is to get the PF transfer to new company. so that you will have just 1 PF number.

  141. Dear Vivek,
