Your Provident Fund (PF) account balance now available online

Your PF account details including the latest account balance can now be checked online. Read on for more details.

The PF office is supposed to give a statement of your PF account to your employer every year, and your finance / accounts department is supposed to hand that over to you. But many employees never get this yearly statement.

So, how can you find your PF account balance?

 

Provident Fund (PF) Details Online

Starting 1st July 2011, the Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has put provident fund (PF) account details online. This means that now you can instantly know your PF account balance!

You can get your PF account details at: http://www.epfindia.com/MembBal.html

This facility has started from Delhi, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Karnal and Bangalore, and is being rapidly extended to 120 more cities.

 

How can you know the PF balance – the procedure

The PF account details ca be obtained online at http://www.epfindia.com/MembBal.html

You would need to submit your PF account number and your mobile number to get the details. You would also need to select the EPFO office where your account is maintained.

On providing these details, your PF details would be delivered to your mobile through an SMS.

There is no charge for this service – it is completely free.

 

Have your PF money in a private trust?

Some companies run their own PF trusts – the companies deposit your PF money with these trusts for management instead of depositing it with the EPFO.

If you work for such a company, can you see your PF account details online?

Well, there is good news for you – the EPFO has asked such private PF trusts to also post the account details online! This is expected to be done by the end of July 2011.
