Finally the wait is over to know your Employee Provident Fund (EPF) account balance. After 2 years of initial announcement to make the account information online, EPFO India has finally delivered something. As per the official note released by the PF department on July 1st of 2011, a valid active account holder will know the balance up to the date. Their claim is that all the accounts are updated for certain circles across country, which also includes the latest approved transactions of settlement/advances/transfer-in/transfer-out, if any.

This data was made initially available for Delhi (North), Delhi (South), Laxmi Nagar (Delhi), Gurgaon, Faridabad, Karnal and Bangalore. Right now PF account balance data is made available for 119 offices across India. Remaining offices records will be made available online soon as per the info on their site.

In order to know your PF account details, follow these simple steps:

  • Visit the site http://www.epfindia.com/MembBal.html
  • Select the EPFO office where your account is maintained
  • Furnish your PF Account number in the online form.
  • Leave the extension field blank, in case your account does not have one.
  • You will be asked to enter your name and mobile number.
  • The given mobile number will be recorded along with the PF Account Number.
  • On successful submission of above information, the details will be sent through SMS to the given mobile number.

If you get confused while entering your information, this pic should help you out!


I tried these steps to get my balance yesterday. First couple of successful submissions went nowhere! I didn’t get any response. Today I was lucky upon trying for the third time! I got the SMS in about 1 hour after filling the details online. Sadly, as on today the account balance reflects the data only till 31st March 2008. We may have to wait for some more time (few more years?) to know the latest balance.

UPDATE : A new article has been posted with complete information you need to know to get started on Universal Account Number (UAN). Feel free to go through the article, follow steps to start linking your PF accounts with UAN for hassle free transfer of balance from your previous PF accounts to the current one.

Oh yeah, one more thing. Don’t spam the comment stream below with your PF account details. I will not be able to get your details. Your comment will just be deleted if it has only such request. This is just for your information and feel free to use the appropriate links provided to know your account data. There are many finance related articles on this site, feel free to read through to understand about investment, insurance and tax savings.

  • Mohan August 26, 2014, 8:00 am

    Hi All, I have added a new article with complete information you need to know to get started on Universal Account Number (UAN) at http://www.mohanbn.com/universal-account-number-comprehensive-guide/. Feel free to go through and start linking your PF accounts with UAN for hassle free transfer of balance from your previous PF accounts to the current one.

    • Sneha August 26, 2014, 5:47 pm

      Great article Mohan on PF accounts with UAN along with Links to check if it has been allocated or not. Got to know that even I have been assigned a UAN. Let me get the same from HR and update my registration and all the previous PF accounts.

      • Mohan August 26, 2014, 9:19 pm

        Glad this was useful for you. Let me know how it goes. I was able to link up all my previous PF accounts listed with the newly registered UAN seamlessly! Got confirmation too from EPFO via SMS.

  • Sandhya August 21, 2014, 12:04 pm

    Where do I get the UAN from? Can you please share more details on UAN for PF?

    • Mohan August 22, 2014, 9:48 pm

      Hi Sandhya, Currently UAN is shared by PF dept with the employers who have active account for their employees. You can get the same by enquiring with your employer. Once you connect your UAN with current PF details, for future use too you will be able to get any employers PF being addressed through UAN. That way there won’t be any missing funds what so ever. I will post a separate article on that soon, stay tuned.

  • Shekar Sinha August 12, 2014, 5:52 am

    I have moved to United states on long term job opportunity. Since I did not have enough time to get my PF account settled, is it possible to get that done now though I am not staying in india now? If so what are my options and how do I go about it?

    • Mohan August 12, 2014, 7:38 pm

      Hi Shekar, well you need to personally submit the claim documents with PF department along with bank details in India. My suggestion is to check with the PF department directly. Having said that, it would be a good use case to consider and share the process for all those PF holders who are currently staying abroad. Let me see if i can pull out another article on this.

      • Kavya August 14, 2014, 10:26 pm

        Mohan – thank you very much for this article. I was able to apply for PF transfer as well as know the balance in my PF account. your article helped me very much.

        • Mohan August 20, 2014, 2:53 pm

          I am glad this article helped you to successfully get the PF transferred from previous employer to the new one! Happy to help :)

  • Inderjit Singh July 27, 2014, 7:21 pm

    Sir, now i am working in a mnc, i have completed 3 year 4 month job in this company, now this company is merging on his another company, i want to know that now what will happen with my pf & gratuity , either it will be transfer or paid by the company on the time of merging.

    • Mohan July 27, 2014, 11:04 pm

      Inderjit, usually when such a merge/take over happens, PF will be transferred to the new entity by default. Gratuity should continue considering your joining date of the current organization and should be honored when you quit the organization after you completing 5 years of service unless there is explicit communication around it by the new company. Please check with your HR, they will be able to provide this info in detail.

  • Shankar pawar May 27, 2014, 1:26 am

    • Kusuma July 26, 2014, 7:57 pm

      i am not able to get my PF org balance as the login to site is failing all the time. how do i solve this login problem and check the balance in my pf account?

      • Mohan July 28, 2014, 4:32 pm

        Hi Kusuma, the login access to the epfo (employee provident fund org) can be easily solved by following the instructions on the site. They are simple and let you easily associate your mobile number to a PF account. Once it is done, you get OTP for subsequent documents access online which is safe and easy. Give a try once again.

I had submitted my PF transfer form through my new company office. Till now I have not got any message regarding my PF amount either it is transferred or not in my new PF account no. I asked in my office but they are telling I will get message from PF office, but till now no any message. Pls let me know how can I check my PF details.

    Anil Kumar singh

    • Mohan July 28, 2014, 10:26 pm

      Anil – hope you got the PF amount transferred from previous account to new account by now? If not there is a good news for you. Can once again initiate the transfer process that too online which gets the PF balance from all your previous employers to current if not transferred already. Give it a try.
