EPFO: Know your EPF (Provident Fund) Balance

EPFO is changing and becoming more transparent.

One can check ones EPF balance from the following link:

http://epfindia.com/MembBal.html

Initially only a few EPFO offices have been linked – but it would be gradually expanded to cover all EPFO offices

The EPF member would be asked to enter 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.

Note: However on checking the link, I found that it was as on date (04 July 2011) the link was not working. I find it strange why govt organisations like EPFO comes out with announcements that they have not implemented. Perhaps, its still the old govt mentality even on internet that make announcement, set up inauguration stones and then delay or forget the project!. For those whose RPFC is not linked the only way to know the balance is by contacting the PRO of particular RPFC.

Update (Sept 2011): Now many RPFC offices have been linked and it seems that the website is being linked to all the EPFO offices in India gradually. And yes – the information provided is through SMS and the system works pretty efficiently. However, the information available is based on the Annual Return submitted. So, when I checked Madhu’s a/c eventhough the particular RPFC EPFO link showed “Data Available upto 07.09.11″, in reality data provided was upto only 31-03-2011
