Tracking Employee Provident Fund (EPF) Balance and Claim Status Online
When you log into this site after entering the EPF office state and code, you have to enter the EPF account number and the name as it appears on your EPF slip. You also have to enter your mobile number. Once you submit this, an SMS is sent to your mobile confirming your registration. Once the registration is done, you can check for the balance in your EPF account through the above link.
Again, the procedure is the same. You have to select the state and enter the account number and check for the status of your application.
Enter the site and select the PF office state. Then mention the company PF code and then enter the account number and fill in the employee name. Click on GetPin - a Pin number is sent to your mobile via SMS. Once you receive the PIN wait for three days by which time the E-Passbook is available for viewing.
Note: Withdrawal of EPF amount can be done as per the following rules:
If you want to withdraw before you retire, 90% of the total amount is available for the same after the age of 54 or one year prior to retirement. To claim this, form 19 has to be submitted to the EPFO.
Some extraordinary situations like retrenchment, settling abroad, disability that forces you to retire, etc. also allow you to withdraw your PF amount.
It is, therefore, evident that you cannot withdraw the PF amount while in service or during a job change.
