Do you want to know your EPF balance? You can do this in several ways – by visiting the EPFO website, the Umang app, etc. Check out the step-by-step guide here.
As soon as you start earning money, you start contributing part of your salary to your Employee Provident Fund (EPF) account, in order to ensure a fixed income after your retirement. We know that the EPF is a retirement savings scheme offered by the EPFO (Employee Provident Fund Organisation). Under the scheme, every month a certain amount is deducted from your salary and transferred to the EPF account. If you’ve contributed to the plan and want to know the balance, here’s how you can check it.
You should also know that you also benefit each year from a specific interest rate on your contributions to the EPF scheme. PF balance can be checked online by visiting EPFO official website, Umang App, via SMS or via missed call.
