How to check EPF BALANCE, Using online, umang App, SMS

 The Employee Provident Fund Organisation had set an interest rate of 8.55 percent for the fiscal year 2018 and will soon credit interest for the same period. The EPF is an important part of savings for all salaried employees. We all have been planning for our retirement the day we have started out on a corporate or a government job. The efforts are also supported by our employer with the help of the labour ministry who help us save some amount of our monthly salary by putting it in a designated employee provident fund (EPF) account. EPFO allows a subscriber to check the provident fund account balance in four ways - SMS, missed call, EPFO website, and UMANG app. Make sure you have registered on the EPFO site before using it.
EPFO members are provided with a universal account number (UAN), which is also registered on the EPFO portal. The number is also mentioned in your salary paycheck. You can SMS to 7738299899 by typing EPFOHO UAN ENG.
So if your EPFO number is 123456789000, and your preferred language is English, you can send an SMS to 7738299899 by typing EPFOHO 123456789000ENG.
EPFO also offers its SMS facility in the following languages – English, Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Marathi, Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu and Bengali.
This facility can only be used only if your UAN is active and is linked with your Aadhaar, bank account, and PAN. If it is not linked with any of the above-mentioned documents, then you need to first complete the eKYC with UAN.
Missed call:
Registered users can also make a missed call to 011-22901406 after which you will get an SMS with details of the provident fund account balance.
