Through Missed Call

The easiest method to check the EPF balance which doesn’t require internet, App, or anything is to check the balance by giving a missed call. Just give a missed call on the number 011-22901406. Give missed calls only through your registered mobile number (RNM), and not from any other name. The reason is, that your EPF account is linked to your registered mobile number only.

Note: – Also This service can only be availed, if your Aadhaar Card, PAN (Permanent Account Number), etc. are all linked to your UAN. IF they are not linked, request your employer to do that.

Through SMS

For those employees who have active UAN, they can send SMS on 7738299899. You will instantly get details of your bank account balance on SMS. The message that needs to sent is ‘EPFOHO UAN ENG’. The last three letters of the message, ‘ENG’ in this case, is the preferred language. Write the first three letters of the language in which you want the SMS. E.g., in the case of Hindi, the message would be ‘EPFOHO UAN HIN’.

Through the UMANG App

There is a dedicated App of the Government of India for all the government employees. The name of the App is UMANG. The full form of UMANG is Unified Mobile Application for New-age Governance.
