[How to] check PF balance via short SMS code


EPFO has recently launched SMS services for its members who have Universal Account Number (UAN).  In 2014, EPFO launched the UAN facility where a portable Universal Account Number was allotted to all the members. Once you active your UAN, you can use different services such as PF balabce, PF passbook, monthly SMS of contributions etc. Read my article on How to activate your PF UAN.

The newly launched EPFO Short Code SMS Service is available only to those members who have activated their UAN (Universal Account Number).

To use this new SMS facility, the member should have the details like Aadhaar, PAN and bank account digitally approved and provided by the employer.

How to use this new SMS facility for PF

Please note that you can only use this facility, if you have PF UAN.It you dont have PF UAN, you can activate your PA UAN.  Else you can check your PF Balance online

You need to send the SMS in predefined format from your mobile number registered during UAN activation. The EPFO on receipt of such SMS will send the members details available with EPFO along with details of KYC seeded, Last Contribution and Total PF Balance.

You need to send the message to 77382 99899 in the format – EPFOHO UAN <LAN>  where <LAN> is first three characters of preferred language.

Language – The Members has been given an option to know the details in 10 different Indian languages namely English, Hindi, Telugu, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi, Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam and Bengali

For example, if  you would like to receive SMS in English, you should send an SMS as EPFOHO UAN ENG to 77382 99899.  

If  you would like to receive SMS in HINDI, you should send an SMS as EPFOHO UAN HIN to 77382 99899.

If you are facing any issues you can contact EPFO helpdesk service at toll free no. 1800118005 from 09:15 AM to 05:45 PM on all seven days for any query relating to UAN / KYC Services.

  11. Hi vivek,
    I worked in three companies from the duration of 2010 to 2015 Jan. Not working now. While I was in company 3 I applied for pf transfer claim from company 1 and 2 to 3rd company s of account. Now transfer claim page in epfo portal shows the current status (in feb)for transfer claim from company 1 to company 3 as ‘your request is in transit between epfo out and in offices’ after the approval from both companies whereas the next claim status for pf transfer from company 2 to 3 got stuck with the approval from previous company msg . no further actions .
    What does the message indicate as I now can’t able to view the balance of pf account of company 1 and 3.
    I got UAN from second company .in UAN only company 2 details were there, I listed company 1 details , it’s showing doj and date of leaving as correct whereas when I listed third company , date of joining showing as doj of first company.
    now all of balance links shows the balance for company 2 only. How can I view the pf balance of other two companies? Also like to know whether pf transfer has done.
    Please reply.

  14. .Hi Vivek, thanks a lot for this useful post and patiently responding to your reader’s queries. Appreciate it.
    One query..
    I gave a miss call on 01122901406 to check the PF Balance.
    Instead of the balance details, I got a message as follows:
    “Member ID xxxxxxxx pertain to exempted estabilishment. PF Balance Service is not available for Trust.”

    What does this mean and how can I check my PF balance as I am unable to see the balance on EPFO Portal too.
    Please advice.
    Thanks again,

    • Hi Divy, It seems that your PF is not managed by EPFO but by company trust. Who is your employer?
      Check with your HR who manages the PF for that company.

  15. Dear Sir,

    My employer has generated new UAN no though First UAN no is provided to him. I have transferred the PF of previous company to first UAN No. but the PF no showing is present employer. Is there any problem. I am not able to generate the Passbook. Both the UAN no is activated. In first UAN is it showing Member Passbook not available. and in second showing You request for passbook already in progress. 5 days lapsed. Also I have followed the steps as mentioned above to know PF balance but not getting the SMA. Please guide me what to do?
