EPF e-Passbook – Check Employee Provident Fund Balance Online

Good news for EPF account holders. Now you can check your Employee provident fund balance online using the new e-passbook service by EPFO website. EPFO has introduced a new concept called “EPF Account Passbook” , which will allow EPF Account holders to download their EPF Balance passbook at any time they want, which means you can now do EPF balance enquiry each month and see how its increasing.

How to register for Employee Provident Fund e-Passbook?

Here are 4 simple steps to register for the Employee Provident Fund e-passbook online and after that you can do the EPF Balance enquiry anytime you want.

Step 1 : Register yourself on the website

Register for EPF e-passbook

The first step is to go to the e-passbook members website – http://members.epfoservices.in/ and click on registration link. Once you are taken to the next page .

Step 2 : Generate your PIN and login

Generate EPF epassbook PIN online

You will be taken to next page where you need to provide details like

  • Mobile number
  • Date of Birth (make sure it matches with EPF records)
  • One of the documents mentioned in the drop-down
  • Name and Number on the document (Like PAN card and the PAN Number)
  • Email

Then you need to click on “Get PIN” button to generate a PIN which will arrive on your mobile and email. This PIN is required to for authorization every time you want to download the e-passbook and check your Employee Provident Fund Balance . At this point of time you will need to LOGIN again which will take you to the main page where you can do your EPF balance enquiry and download the e-passbook.

Step 3 : Download the EPF Passbook which has your balance

Download EPF e-passbook PDF

Now on this page, you need to go to option which says “Download E-passbook” and under that click on “Download E-passbook”, It will ask for the state where your establishment is covered like Maharashtra , Karnataka, Delhi etc etc .. Once you click on the state, it will ask you to choose the exact EPF Office.

Step 4 : Enter your EPF details

Finally download the EPF Passbook

Now you need to enter your EPF account number and name of the account holder, and click on “GET PIN” , which will generate the PIN on the fly which will come on your phone and email. You need to now enter this PIN below and you can download the PDF which has your current Employee Provident Fund Balance and other details. Make sure you do not close this page unless you get the PIN. On of our Financial Coaching Client Jassi tried this whole thing and his experience was good

I followed the same steps. Yes the PIN is received in your mobile after some time, so one needs to be patient. And the page should not be closed until one receives the PIN, to access further. After receiving the PIN, log in to the application. If e-passbook is available, it should be shown immediately. Otherwise, one might have to wait. – On Email from Jassi

Checking your Employee Provident Fund Balance from time to time ?

Now with this method you can keep checking your EPF account balance from time to time , you can check it each month after your salary is deducted and some days pass, or you can also check your PF balance on a quarterly or yearly basis, whatever works for you. I hope you are clear about some hidden and must know facts about your EPF

Sample EPF e-Passbook

Below is a sample EPF passbook which you can view and download. It shows how EPF e-passbook looks like and different entries made by the employer. But you will see only those entries which were uploaded and updated by your employer. It might happen that some people see their old data only.

12 Important points to know about EPF ePassbook

Here are some of the very important things you should know about the Employee Provident Fund e-passbook facility.

1. One Mobile number

One mobile number can be used for one registration only. However you can change this mobile number later if you want , so incase your mobile number changes, no worries.

2. One EPF account per establishment

You will be able to view only one EPF account details per establishment, means if you have two EPF accounts under Maharashtra (suppose you had a job in Mumbai and Pune) , then you will not be able to view both of them, In that case you will need to first transfer one EPF to another. However you can view your EPF account details which is under different establishments like say one in Karnataka , Maharastra and Delhi (suppose you had 3 jobs)

3. Total 10 EPF accounts can be viewed

A total of 10 EPF account details can be viewed under different establishments. I think its very fair logic, because in all probabilities, a person will not have more than 10 EPF accounts in several establishment, if he has, no one can help him anyways 😉

4. Inoperative & Settled EPF accounts details not available

If someone’s EPF account is inoperative (it happens if you leave the job and for 3 yrs there is no activity in your EPF account, even the interest will not be credited to that account), or the account is settled (you withdrew the amount already) , then your details will not be available. Tip – You can file a RTI application for your EPF queries and get them answered.

5. Details on request if you left the job before Mar 2012

If you have left your job before Mar 2012, then your EPF account may not be seeing any credit in past few months, in that case he will not be able to see the Employee provident fund details immediately, but it can be requested on the website (you will see a link) and that will be uploaded in few days.

6. Available only if employer has uploaded Electronic Challan Cum Return of May 2012 onwards

This facility is available only to those whose employers have uploaded the Electronic Challan cum return for May 2012 onwards, Electronic Challan is a way of submitting the employee’s contribution to EPFO online, which is recently introduced by EPF organisation .

7. No need to remember user id and password

There is no user id and password, all you need is your mobile number, document name and document number, which we all remember anyways. At the time of downloading your EPF Balance passbook, you will need to generate the PIN online which will be sent to your phone, this will reduce the chances of fraud

8. Private EPF trusts not eligible 

Those employees who have their EPF with private PF trusts (or called as establishments exempted under the EPF Scheme) will not enjoy the benefit of this e-passbook facility, hence they will not be able to check their employee provident fund balance online using this.

9. Use multiple id’s to register

You can add several documents like Driving license, passport, ration card etc in the same account, this way you dont need to remember just one document id and its number, you can login using any of those which you are carrying at that time.

10. Details and Entries in the EPF passbook

Month and date wise transactions made in member’s account will be displayed in the pass book from the year for which the annual accounts were updated for the establishment for the first time since computerisation of the concerned field office. For example if the first annual accounts of member’s establishment were updated for the year 2008-09 by the concerned field office after its computerisation, the pass book will display the opening balance for year 2008-09 and all transactions thereafter.

11. Error while Downloading the passbook

While downloading your EPF passbook, you might see an error saying “YOU HAVE ENTERED INVALID MEMBERS ID OR NAME”.

Please check whether you have entered the correct code & account number and/or name. In case yes, the name may not be matching as per the record in epfo. In such case the member has to contact the concerned epfo office. At times some entries from EPF passbook might be missing, in which case, the member should check first with the employer whether the returns for the month/year related to the missing entry has been submitted by him to the concerned epfo office. In case yes then he/she can contact the concerned epfo office regarding the missing details.

12. Not getting the PIN on your mobile ?

Ideally you should get the PIN on your mobile as soon as you click on “Get PIN” , but if you dont get it fast, it means the lines are busy and you should wait for more time and re-try !

Tip : Use Chrome instead of other browsers, Some components are running smoothly on Chrome, but not on other browsers .

Are you going to check your EPF Passbook ?

Is this working for you ? Did you try to find out your Employee Provident Fund Balance using this method ? Once you are able to do your PF balance enquiry using this way and check your EPF passbook online or not ?, kindly let us know on comments section.

    good one Manish. I tried this last week when a colleague emailed me the link. Got an error saying “The passbook details are not available, but you will receive an SMS in a few days when the details become available” :(

  2. Badrish

    It’s a good site and everything…but at the end, I got a message saying sorry that they couldn’t generate the report for me and flashed a button to submit my request and then asked me to check back in 3 days. They also said I would get an SMS once it is generated.

    Hoping that this was a genuine workflow and I will sure get that SMS in the next 2-3 days.

    But, definitely thanks for letting us know about this.

  3. In my case also the reply is like Mr.Ajay mentioned above. I have tried but could not open the E-book. But I know the reason that there may be my organisation is not filed our payment through e-filing from May 2012 onwards. Still my organisation is filing the return manually. Any way thanks for this good informational article. God bless you.

  4. Suhas

    Manish,

    Nice article.

    I have registered but could not check the balance as our company has private PPF trust.
    Recived the sms in fraction of second.could finish the registration in less then a minute.
    Seems PPF office is doing some inovative methods to bring the changes in the way they used to work.
    Thanks for info might be useful in future……….

  5. Anurag Srivastava

    I tried downloading the E-passbook but it is saying ” You have entered invalid Member ID or Name ” ,What can be the reason ??

  6. Sam

    This is great news. Thank you so much.

    I tried to download mine but it was not available. So i raised a request to make it available. Lets see if i get any response from them :)

  7. Anurag

    I checked my EPF e-Passbook a week back. Initially it wasn’t available but EPF office/application took the request and made it available in 3 days. It has line-wise details as shown in screenshot above. Some good work coming thru finally …
    cheers,

    “Your e-Passbook request has been accepted. You shall be intimated on SMS when the same is available. You can check back after 3 days.”

    Need to wait and see.

    • Santosh Prasad

      I had also received this message when tried to download. However, after 13-14 days, I received an SMS that your passbook is available. Then I could download. So, please wait. You will receive an SMS when your passbook is available.

  9. Kiran

    In My Case I am getting the below message and its UnderHyderabad EPF Office

    Your request date. 30/07/2012 for e-Passbook for account number XXXXXXXXXXXXXX is under process. You shall be intimated on SMS when the same is available.

  10. vijay

    I received a same response as many of you (Your e-Passbook request has been accepted. You shall be intimated on SMS when the same is available. You can check back after 3 days). I tried this about 10 days back, still no response from the department. anyways thanks for the update.

    • Santosh Prasad

      I had also received this message when tried to download. However, after 13-14 days, I received an SMS that your passbook is available. Then I could download. So, please wait. Once, your passbook is available, they will SMS you.

  11. Dhaval

    Hi Manish,

    I already followed the process few weeks back and I am able to download it.
    Few of my colleagues are facing problem because for them PF number starts with KN/18***/*** . They dont have PF number like KN/MYS or etc….

    Any idea, How can they download it ?

    Regards,
    Dhaval

  13. YOGESH KESHAV PHANASE

    Hi Manish,

    I get error You have entered invalid Member ID or Name ” ,What can be the reason ?. i have mentioned correct details.

  14. Jayant

    Any initiative to get our data online by PF office goes down the drain as their IT does not seem to be capable of handling this much load. Like all the folks mentioned in comments, I am also getting error:
    “Your e-Passbook request has been accepted. You shall be intimated on SMS when the same is available. You can check back after 3 days.”
    And I am not too hopeful if I will get the e-Passbook even after 30 days. Last time they created a website to send your balance via SMS. It had accounts updated up until 4 years back. An organization handling so many crores of rupees can’t put together 1 simple service online. So much for government service. :(

    • Santosh Prasad

      I had also received this message when tried to download. However, after 13-14 days, I received an SMS that your passbook is available. Then I could download. So, please wait. Once, your passbook is available, they will SMS you. Reason is that lots of PF offices do not have updated accounts till FY 2011-2012. Also, all employers are not submitting electronic challans as made compulsory by EPFO since Apr 2012.

    • Thanks for your comment Jayant

      Agree that sarkari attitude is there and even I am not too much hopeful , but some people have got their passbook downloaded , see the comments . please update what happens in your case in next few days !

      • Jayant

        Hey Manish, Santosh,

        I got my passbook downloaded. It shows transactions from 1st April 2010 to 1st March 2012. Is passbook updated per FY basis or they should show as of last month ?

        • Santosh Prasad

          Jayant,
          My passbook is also updated till Mar 2012. Ideally, it should have entries updated till last month. But, currently it is not showing due to 2 reasons, as per my knowledge:
          1) Member accounts are still not updated in lots of PF offices. There is still a huge backlog. EPFO has mandated its offices to update pending accounts by 30-Sep-2012.
          2)Not all employers are submitting e-challan as mandated by EPFO.
          It will take time for things to be stable. In future, I hope we can see our passbook updated till last month. :-)

          • Also I think not all employers will update things on monthly basis, some might update on quarterly basis or worst half yearly basis, I am not sure what are the rules on that , but just guessing this .

    Hi Manish,

    Thanks a ton for this information.

    I have registered myself but no idea whether or not I will be able to see my e-passbook as my account is old and amount under transfer.

    Also, I am aprehensive how come they make my details available in 3 days when they cant transfer my amount in 16 months.

    Thanks,
    Swetank

  18. Keerthi Mukhi

    As I see in my PF statement, the Account Number is KN/19XXX/677XX.

    When I click on the link “DOWNLOAD E-PASSBOOK”, in the next screen I select the state as ‘Karnataka’ and in the next step I am not sure what ‘Office Name’ I have to select for ‘Select your EPFO Office’? could you please clarify what ‘EPFO Office’ I have select based on my above PF details?

    Also, if I tried selecting ‘EPFO Office’ as ‘BANGALORE’ or ‘MYSOREROAD’ then in the screen that follows, if I give details like ‘Account Number’, ‘Name as of PF Slip’ then I get error message saying “You have entered invalid Member ID or Name”. Could you please clarify why am I getting such error message?

  19. Keerthi Mukhi

    I have accidently given my PF login details that has my mobile no., kindly request you please remove such details when you post my query.

  20. santosh

    Hi
    I worked for a software company in Noida and left it after some time for higher studies. They deducted PF from may salary . I want to know that can i get that money back I don’t have my salary slip with nor PF account no.
    I left company two years back can anyone suggest anything on this

    Thanks and Regards

    • Rakesh

      @Santosh,

      Contact your employer they will have all the details. You can fill the PF withdrawal slip and your PF should be credited to your account in about six months. I have done it in the past.

      • santosh

        Please tell me how i can withdraw it without contacting my previous comapny as I left it without their permission.

        • Rakesh

          I guess it is difficult to withdraw without contacting your previous employer because there are set of forms which need to be filled (one by the employer too). You can contact your nearest Provident Fund office and get the information to withdraw.

          • Sushil

            I also left the company without approval of employer….somehow i managed to get the EPF acc Number and then i submitted withdrawal request . Authorities told me to get the form verified by employer. I told them the truth. They suggested to get the Forms attested by a gazzatted officer and then i got the withdrawal amount in my account in a week….One thing only is needed that it Account Number ….

            • Rakesh

              That’s what the reply I got from the EPF authorities here in Bangalore. I had not renewed EPF from one of my old companies. Now it has closed down and when i checked with EPF they said from 3 A needs to be filled by the employer.

  21. Prem

    Its working for me. I registered on 25th July. When I tried to download I got the messaged that you e-passbook will be available in next 3 working days. I got a message after approx 10 working days and was able to check my balance in pdf format..

  22. Jatin Visaria

    Hi,

    Thanks for providing such a imp information.

    As far as i know, some part of PF contribution (8.33% if i am correct) goes to EPS i.e. Employee Pension Scheme. How to know details of EPS.

  23. Manan

    This is not working as I am getting error that “The passbook details are not available, but you will receive an SMS in a few days when the details become available”

  24. Roop

    Hi

  25. anisur

    MY PF a/c no.MH/94723/4xxxx
    any from no.042766594 but it is not accepting the details
    any suggestions ?

  26. Sushil

    I got this information some 10 days back…..i immediately accessed the portal logged on and it said your EPF passbook is not ready. Once it will b ready, an SMS will be sent to you for information. Next week i got an SMS that my EPF passbook is ready…..i login and downloaded….it was an amazing experience to saw my EPF account first time in my 10 year job…in last 10 year my employer never gave me any information on EPF balance. So now i saw it live officially….once 2-3 years back i got all this info by RTI

    By the way thanks to u for sharing such a nice updates

  27. karan

    I had applied for passbook on 31st July but still no update. When I went to download again, it says your request is under process. Not sure how long will it take.

  28. Somnath Pramanik

    My employer don’t deposit the EPF amount regularly. I checked that during 1.5 years, they have only deposited the EPF amount for 1 month. Still now, I am continuing the job with this employer. So when I quit this employer’s job, they would deposited all pending amount in my EPF. In that case, shall I get the cumulative interest on that EPF amount? Please give your valuable information.

      • Somnath Pramanik

        Thanks for reply. But my question was that, if employer deposit the EPF amount regularly, then will the employee miss the cumulative interest on that amount?? Or when employer deposit the amount pending EPF amount, they should pay with interest??

  29. Shilpa

    Anyone noticed missing Contribution?

    I got it and checked for my office staff for Mumbai & even uploaded example of Karnataka , everywhere it is showing less contribution for complete a year from April 2011 till March 2012, entries are missing. before April 2011, we can see entry for Mar 2011 and after March 2012, we can see entry for April 2012 , May 2012 but complete a Year’s contribution is MISSING.

  30. Raju

    I requested on 5th August. It is still under process….
    message is given on EPFO website :
    Your request date. 05/08/2012 for e-Passbook for account number xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is under process. You shall be intimated on SMS when the same is available

  31. Puneeth

    I am getting member ID or name error……I think Rajarajeshwari branch has no option of E pass book…..cos my org comes under R R nagar bangalore. I followed exactly what you have mentioned.

  32. Rakesh

    I think it would be better if the EPF authorities update their accounts. As of now its updated only until 31/03/2011 which is about a year and half behind. This will benefit members a lot as they will get the latest balance on their EPF.

    Innovation is good but that can wait………..

  33. Anurag

    Hello Manish,

    I am a TCS Employee .In my PF Document it is written TATA CONSULTANCY SERVICES EMPLOYEES’ PROVIDENT FUND.does that mean complany has its own PF Trust.If it is like that ,how can we withdraw or transfer the PF Amount when we switch jobs. My Account no is MH/BAN/48475/524404 and the error I am getting is ” You have entered invalid Member ID or Name ”

  34. Abhishek

    Hello Manish,
    I am able to download my e passbook.But in e-passbook there is few issue can you please answer my below question.
    1)I am able to see record from 01/04/2010 to 01/03/2011 and from 01/04/2012 to 01/06/2012 .But there is no record from 01/04/2011 to 01/03/2012.
    2)I can see the record which got transferred from my last employer but there is 0 rs mentioned for pension fund(EPS).

      • Sashidhar

        Hi Manish,

        Thanks for sharing such a wonderful article. The information is very useful. I submitted my request on 15th Aug and got the statement today (23rd Aug). But like Abhishek and others pointed out, my statement also has records missing exactly between Apr 2011 & Mar 2012. Just wondering could there be a possibility that my company has not deposited the PF amount into the account?

        I see your suggestion to use RTI to get detailed answers on this issue, but i haven’t used RTI till now :( ….it will be of immense help if you can share some article on how to file RTI request. (pls share the link if it is already posted in Jagoinvestor blog.)

        Thanks

  35. Breeze

    I got the e-Passbook exactly on the 3rd day after submitting the request but the data has been updated only for the last financial year (01-04-2011 to 01-03-2012). Does anyone know how often the data gets updated in PF database? Thanks.

  36. Abanindra

    Thanks Mansih for this info. I followed this and was able to download my EPF Passbook updated till 24th July 2012. This is really helpful as you can see your details EPF as well as EPS statement.

    For me the joining date for both EPF and EPS is showing wrong. I am thinking to submit an RTI to get it corrected. Last time I submitted an RTI application to transfer my EPF amount from my last organization to my new organization and it works really well. It get transfered within one month of submitting the application.

  37. Sachin Khanna

    Hi Manish,

    I am also hitting the issue which couple of other folks are hitting: “You have entered invalid Member ID or Name”

    I have verified that the Account Number is valid and also I am entering my name as in the physical slip I have (Although this slip is 4-5 years old, when the account id was in older format).

    Can you share the format of name in general?
    My old PF slip(govt. PF folks distributed them in our office couple of years back!) shows without any space in between. I am assuming issue could be the way/case used by the server. Although I have tried multiple formats, but no luck…

    Thanks,
    Sachin

  38. Rajeev Ranjan Roy

    Manish, Thanks for sharing this and really its very helpful to know the EPF balance and contribution month by month.
    I have a question – In my EPF Statement there is no data available for one year i.e. April-2011 to Mar-2012 then its showing one contribution in April-2012 and another in June-2012.

    Although i have left the company on 10th May 2012.

    Please suggest me what should i do to check detail that my employer has deposited money or not, if not then what action will be taken.

    Thanks for your support in advance

  44. gokul

    I am getting message Your request date. 25/07/2012 for e-Passbook for account number APHYD00298960000007951 is under process. You shall be intimated on SMS when the same is available.Its more than one month since i registered what i need to do.

    • Pradip

      Yes it does not start with https , because you dont need that to read things .. https is required mostly when you are making some payment and giving details of credit card or other sensitive information

      • Harish

        Hi Manish,

        You are providing sensitive information like your PAN card number or Aadhar Number when you register as well as when you login. Sending them in clear text without any encryption is definitely not a secure way.

  45. hi, i have noted that the entries between 31/03/2011 and 1/04/2012 are missing, same is the case with attached pdf and the one i downloaded.

    do u have any knowledge about this

    Hi Manish,

    I registered on EPF Member portal for e-passbook with the my PAN number which I entered incorrectly.
    As per the FAQ’s in the website to change the incorrect PAN number, I updated my profile with other documents details like PASSPORT and Driving Licence, Then logged in with PASSPORT login to change the incorrect PAN number, but I am unable to change the PAN Number, the field itself is not editable.

    As per FAQS in the website, after logging in with other documents details one cand edit the incorrect PAN. Let me know how can I change the incorrect PAN number entered.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Divya

    • I dont think there is any shortcut for this, many people have got the sms for their passbook and it might take more time in your case. If you need the information urgently about something in your EPF , in that case you should use RTI !

  63. Karthik Reddy Chintaparthi

    Hi Manish, I have a PF account in my old employer and I used to check the balance using the “Check EPF balance online” via SMS. I have been with old employer for abt 5 years. Now I have moved onto another company and requested for a transfer of my old PF to new PF account.

    I am with the new company for abt 1.5 year. I am unable to view the balance in new PF account using my phone number as it says “This phone number is registered to another PF….”

    How am I supposed to check the balance via SMS for the new PF account ? Please suggest.

    Thanks much, Karthik.

    Respected sir
    I want to know my epf amount. My account no. is HR/KNL/0017080/000/0000035 KINDLY GIVE ME THE INFORMATION OF MY BALANCE

  69. Uday

    I have registered my account and logged in fine, but when I try to obtain a report, it says “You have entered invalid Member ID or Name”. My PF account number is like TN/4xxxx/023xxx. I have made sure I am entering the numbers in the correct boxes, and also my name exactly as it is in the company records (as well as several combinations). I joined this company in April 2012, is it because of that? Someone mentioned in this section the company sends the data to the EPFO once in a year, so should I just wait until next year?

    The EPFO seems to be doing something in the name of computerization but somehow they just don’t get it right. Earlier they setup a system of obtaining the PF balance on SMS, I really doubt whether it has actually worked for anyone. It didn’t work for me as well scores of people that I know.

  70. TUSHAR

    Hi Manish,
    I am getting the following error while Downloading the passbook
    “YOU HAVE ENTERED INVALID MEMBERS ID OR NAME”.
    Now,I want to know name details of for my pf no registered with pf office.
    I have indicated name mistake in the slips received by me consistently received by me during a short course of time although the pf deductions went on along with the service.
    Later, during my follow up for PF claim after my resignation,
    I was assured by my pf agent and the pf officer that the corrected name as quoted in the claim form will be considered irrespective of previous mistakes in the slips.

    Now,Having registrered correctly for e-passbook booking
    Please advise me how to get the name registered at epfo office against a PF no
    and avoid the above error.
    Send the reply on my gmail id
    Thanks
    Regards
    Tushar

    Please check whether you have entered the correct code & account number and/or name. In case yes, the name may not be matching as per the record in epfo. In such case the member has to contact the concerned epfo office. At times some entries from EPF passbook might be missing, in which case, the member should check first with the employer whether the returns for the month/year related to the missing entry has been submitted by him to the concerned epfo office. In case yes then he/she can contact the concerned epfo office regarding the missing details.

  71. TUSHAR

    Hi Manish,
    Can I get the correct name registered with EPFO office against my pf no quoted myself ?
    It is difficult to explain the entire history now to current office staff after a lapse of 20 years.
    Can EPF office eg PRO /supportgroup help me in this regard via Email /site ?
    If yes please provide their contact details.
    My correct name is already with EPF through the submitted my EPF claim form and other documents enclosed.

        hi Manish,
        Thanks for the eariar answer.
        Another query about the dormant epf account definition

        When does the epf account become dormant ?

        Pl give the date of implementation of this rule .(Mumbai zone) and
        also quote the month of dormancy for the following example.
        Eg An epf contribution stopps in 01 JAN 2010, and is claimed in 21MAR 11.

        Which filed claims (ex specify filed before dd/mo/yr or after Dd/Mo/Yr ) to this rule)will carry the exemption and will continue getting interests till date ?

        Analyse The following claims for their dormancy.
        a)If a pf contribution stops ,crosses the dormancy period (irrespective of the firm status or employee stays/leaves) .
        b)Delay caused during the processing of claim both due to
        submitted and not submitted/located records either or both of them causing a delay and crossing the dormancy period after submission

        For a Dormant account,
        1.HOW TO GET information about its DORMANT status (eg via site, customersupprt,epf office) for fututre follow up ?

          • Deena

            In your case EPF becomes dormant only after 01 JAN 2013

            Since you have initiated the claim within this period (21 Mar 11) even if there is a delay in transferring the PF accumulations to new account/withdrawal. You would get the interest on your EPF amount.

              Dear Manish /Deena
              Thanks for the reply about my last letter.I still fill the following part of the letter is not clear to me through it.Kindly elaborate.

              Which filed claims (ex specify filed before dd/mo/yr or after Dd/Mo/Yr ) to this rule)will carry the exemption and will continue getting interests till date ?
              Analyse The following claims for their dormancy.

              submitted and not submitted/located records either or both of them causing a delay and crossing the dormancy period after submission”

              Further please clarify ,if the application is still liable for dormancy in case the communication/submission between the epf office and the firm regarding the requirement of documents eg form 3-A,6-A,(collective deduction report format) ,CD consumes time ? Note that, the individual PF deduction form 3-A in this case for the claim is already submitted around 2 years 11 months back.
              The collective records are not found by the new staff members of the firm currently.
              What is an alternative solution to this problem ?

    Hi Manish,

  73. Deena

    Thanks Manish! It was informative.

    Got the message “Your e-Passbook request has been accepted. You shall be intimated on SMS when the same is available. You can check back after 3 days.”

    Awaiting……

  74. krishna

    Had applied for e-passbook on 14/08/2012. Still awaiting that elusive password, which was supposed to come in 3 days! Are there others who have yet to receive the intimation that their passbook has been made available?

  75. MANU

    HI MANISH /DEENA AND OTHER EXPERTS regarding the recently launched
    dormancy procedures for claimed epf accounts.
    Pl answer my following queries after reading the various Qs and As quoted above.
    for the following case :

    An individual ex employee has filled epf claim form.
    All 3A forms have been submitted by the claimant showing only his individual epf /pension deductions in 3A format along with his pf claim form .(for last 4 years of the servive period)

    It is discovered that,for a certain year , details of pf deductions of the eligible staff for that year i.e. forms 3-A,6-A and hence a CD in turn are required of his last
    4 years service period. The details are unavailable recently.

    The claim is also nearing to its dormancy status due to delay in submission.

    Now My questions are,
    1>What is a alternate solution to this problem to reduce the claim time? in the absence of details ?
    2>Can the dormancy be avoided by letting the employee deposit the minimum/medium/maximum amount to his account against his pf no?(i.e. can it become a single side pf deposit account case ?) if yes how ??
    3>What is the future of such prolonged dormant accounts? How these claims are to be settled by an individual?/by the nominee /by the family member ?
    4> Is account liable to be for fitted ? if yes when??
    Thanks.

    i registered and this is the status “Your request date. 13/08/2012 for e-Passbook for account number BGBNG00**************5 is under process. You shall be intimated on SMS when the same is available”. Its been three months, no change in this status. any idea what is the issue or what further action can i take?

  78. I am feeling that whoever registered / requested on around 13 aug 2012 to 16 aug 2012 are feeling the same issue, don’t know whether it is correct or not, but i am keeping an eye on all feedback, even i also requested on 14 aug 2012, and till now i didnot get any response……….is my doubt is correct or just the misconcept.

  79. People can reply to this if they have requested in between 12 Aug 2012 to 25 Aug 2012 and still their status is “Under process. You shall be intimated on SMS when the same is available”. So that we can comeup with some solution.

    Hi, Thanks for sharing this information. I created an account in September and I was able to generate passbook. But do you know how to re-generate passbook again with latest information. When I login now it’s showing me the old book (Generated in September), there is no way I can generate again.

      • YashB

        Hi, Thanks Manish for the helpful information. I also have similar issue as Suresh has mentioned.
        I downloaded the statement in mid Aug 2012 which has contributions included till June 2012. And for the last contribution of June 2012, the ‘Updated On’ date in 2nd column of statement is of mid July 2012. Also, by checking the ‘Updated On’ dated for last couple of months’ contributions; it seems that contributions are being done regularly and updated without much of delay.
        However, I have been trying to get the latest statement since last 3 months but have been getting the older statement I downloaded in mid Aug 2012 (for Contribution till June 2012).
        I also tried ‘http://www.epfindia.com/MembBal.html’ to know the latest balance but for me it is showing even older balance i.e. till March 2012 only.
        Is there any other way to get the latest statement/balance figure or I should continue to periodically try downloading the statement again?

    What could be wrong… please help.

    Hi Manish,

    Thanks for the tutorial. I followed the steps as is 15 days back and got a SMS last week that my EPassbook has been made available and is ready to be downloaded.

    Now, when I login and click on the download epassbook tab, enter the PF number (format is AP/HYD/12345/123) – as 12345 in the 1st text box, leaving the 2nd text box blank and then entering 123 in the 3rd text box. Typed in the captcha and clicked on Get Pin.
    As opposed to what many others who got a message ” You have entered invalid Member ID or Name”, I get a message ” You have entered invalid Member ID”

    I waited for a week, guessing that this might take some time but it continues to remain the same as of today. My PF account was opened in July 2011 (as I started my professional career then). I had earlier been able to get the PF balance from :- http://epfoservices.in/epfo/member_balance/member_balance.php earlier, but now I get the message Invalid Member_id / Data not updated against this AP/HYD/12345/123

    http://epfoservices.in/homepage_claim_status_new.php

    It’s been over 40 days since my documents were submitted(by post) to the epfo office in South Delhi by my employer(all duly filled). However, there has been no update in the claim status records(not even that your documents have been accepted, received, rejected, etc.).
    Can you tell what is the usual time they take for the FIRST update? Also, how much time they take till the funds are finally transferred?

    Thanks a lot. Keep up the good work.

    Regards,
    Avnir

    I joined an organisation in Sep 2011 and applied for PF tranfer from previous org.. I was able to check the status of the xfer and it said “settled”. However, when I tried to check my current (new) PF balance using EPF website or E passbook portal, I couldn’t due to Invalid member id error.

    I believe this error is coz EPF website is updated till March 2011 (not sure), hence missing my PF no. Can you please assist on how can I check the balance. Let me know if you need any further details.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the nice info. Basically I need your suggestion/opinion related to PF withdrawal / transfer. I completed 4 years in a Company Y but I have not withdrawal or transfer my PF from old Company X. So my question is can I withdraw PF amount or transfer it to my new account no?
    Is it possible to transfer account after 4 or more years by filling Form 13 (Revised) ? Anyway I will not get any interest after 3 years .

    4. Inoperative & Settled EPF accounts details not available

    If someone’s EPF account is inoperative (it happens if you leave the job and for 3 yrs there is no activity in your EPF account, even the interest will not be credited to that account), or the account is settled (you withdrew the amount already) , then your details will not be available. Tip – You can file a RTI application for your EPF queries and get them answered.

    Hi,
    My PF account is already settled, but I have not received any statement of account for that. Is there any way to get following information?
    1) Detail of contribution, employer and self,
    2) Detail of Interest credited.
    3) Is final settlement given after deducting of taxes?

  106. Nishant

    Manish, I work for Nokia Siemens network. I view my PF statement on http://www.dkmonline.com. In the statement i can see the trust as “SIEMENS PUBLIC COMM. NETWORKS PVT. LTD. EPF TRUST” and also my PF no in KN/XXXXX/XXXXX format. I tried to download the e-passbook from EPFO website, whenever i enter my PF no it says invalid member ID. My question is whether “SIEMENS PUBLIC COMM. NETWORKS PVT. LTD. EPF TRUST” is a private trust and they are authorized to maintain the EPF accounts of their employees and my PF statement can be only viewed/download from company approved vendor (DKM). And i cannot view/download my PF statement from EPFO as they don’t have my details and that is the reason i am getting a error message like invalid member ID ?

    Regards
    Nishant.

  107. Ramya

    Hi,

    My PF account is closed and I have received 2 different amounts to my back account (hopefully one should be EPF and the other one being EPS). Is there a way to validate that the amount credited is right ? I am not able to check the details of withdrawn PF accounts in EPF website

    Thanks,

  108. Swathi

    Hi,

    If I would like to change the name entered in EPF site, what should I do ? My employer has given my name as Swathi Ajay whereas I have given the name as Swathi A and now I am stuck as how to change the name in the EPF website. Can you please help ?

    Thanks,
    Swathi

    • an affidavit duly supported with documentary evidence that you are the same person should be furnished to the EPF regional office who after being fully satisfied shall effect the necessary changes in their record pertaining to your account.

Rs. 25,000/- crores of Indian rupees are in EPF, various banks, postal deposits, Insurance companies, Dividend of Indian Companies, etc. as UNCLAIMED. And the major LION’s shares belongs to EPF department. As per the RBI instructions, the Banks have started giving the names of their inoperative accounts in their respective websites. I would like to know whether EPF department have any such ideas to publish the names of inoperative accounts. kindly give your reply

    Dear Mr. Manish , I got the EPF slip for financial year 2011 – 12. But the EPF department have not mentioned the name of the nominee even though I have nominated the same. Is it not the duty of the department to mention the name of the nominee, in case in future any claim arises. Please give your suggestion

  114. Pradeep Bohra

    Hi Manish,

    I am a active RTI member and got my PF transferred through RTIs multiple time and very efficiently.
    Now I have a doubt that we cannot get the latest copy of the passbook if you get it once.
    To explain it better say I downloaded the passbook on 01/Aug/2012 and I want to get the details of transaction after my last download. Currently there is no way you can get as it will alsways show the last PDF for downloading.

    Please check and let me know if I am doing something wrong.
    If does not work out anyway RTI is always there.

    • Its not like that I guess. The thing is the data is not uploaded properly on timely basis. Seems like they still have the old data there ! , only when they upload the new data , then you will get new PDF :)

    • vipin

      Mr. Bohra, It is nice that you are an active RTI activist. Now my question is that how you file the application under RTI act. please let me know the same ( procedure ) at the earliest. I am waiting for your reply. thanks in advance

      • Vijay

        As I said, you will have to wait for some time for it to be available. some people in my office waited for 2 months before it was available. So it works , its only that it may take time. And I think there’s nothing you can do to speed it up , so dont worry about that :)

  119. Vijay

    I generated my passbook and was able to download the same. Although it took around 1 month and a week for the passbook to be available on the website. Couple of other colleagues of mine also had to wait for many weeks before the passbook was available. So , be patient.
    The passbook also doesn’t get updated with each contribution. When I go again after a month to get the latest one, it simply shows me the earlier one only. Dont know how much time do they usually take to update entries.

  120. Vijay

    Hi Manish Chauhan,

    Hi Manish Sir,

    I transferred the PF balance from my previous organization to the current one while switching the job in 2011 and now when I download the ePassbook in 2013, it does not reflect the balance that I transferred from my last organization. How to make sure that the balance got transferred successfully?

    Thanks,
    Devesh

    • Yes, it might have transferred successfully, but its still not part of the passbook . File an RTI and ask them what is the balance. That would be the most authentic source !

  123. Sachin

    “Your pass book is not available on the portal. Your request has been recorded. Based on the request the concerned EPFO Office will upload the pass book. You will get an SMS for downloading it once the pass book is available on the portal.”

    Generally how much time it will take to upload the passbook?

  128. Amrita Mashar

    Dear sir,
    Your articles are really very informative. After reading your article on EPF E-passbook in December 2012, I applied for E-passbook that time. I got E_passbook within 25 working days. I am working in Ahmadabad and My PF account is in Kochi branch.

    But Now I am not able to apply E_passbook once again to check current status of EPF balance. There is no link for new registration for E_passbook. Please guide me for the same. I am searching link from last 2-3 months. Even I send mail on regional office of EPFO. I did not get any reply for the same.

      • Amrita Mashar

        Thanks for information. But I want to know that where I can find RTI. I am from Ahmedabad. My PF account is in Kochi as my company’s head office at Kochi. Whats procedure for filling RTI ? Shall I file RTI with PF office, Ahmedabad branch?

      • Pramod

        Dear Manish

        I registered in epf site in Oct’2012 and when I login first time they got option to send your request for passbook then within 3 days I got sms i.e. passbook available then I downloded same, thereafter whenever I login i see same uploded passbook everytime, initially I thought reason behind this could be because epfo is not updating account. Few days back I ask one of my team member to register in this site when he registerd then found same option (send request for epf passbook) which I saw first time and within few days he got epf passbook updated till Aug’2013. So finally question is how to get option to send request for updated passbook?

  129. upmanyu K

    MEMber portal is useless (for Indore PF office) as we cannot register in the same because intentionally, the Date of birth section is disabled and not accepting the input so that irregularities could not be unveiled. hence E-Passbook of Provident Fund status book (PDF) is of no use .

  137. siva

    this e-passbook is junk.. It is showing the same passbook pdf file for the last 4 months. Does it gets updated and new PDF files created every month or atleast every quarter? For me it got created in Sep after waiting for more than 1 year. After that there is no update to this file..

  138. Praveen

    Nice article Manish. Quick qn – I made a minor mistake in the PF account number when attempting to download the PF pdf. But it looks like I am stuck with the incorrect account number which I provided. If I try to give my correct PF account number and click on the ‘Get PIN’ button, the site keeps giving the error message “You have already downloaded passbook of one account under this establishment (or requested a passbook under this establishment) and are not permitted to download another account number under same establishment. In case both account numbers are yours, please apply in Form 13 for transfer of the old account to the new one.” – any idea on how to workaround the issue? I have raised an online grievance but not received any response yet. Thanks

    Hi Manish,
    I registered on EPF Member portal for e-passbook with the my PAN number where I am not gating my balance is update, i am gating update up to 31/3/2013.
    How i update upto 31/3/2014.

  141. Vishal

    I tried downloading it once few months ago, and I was able to successfully download the PDF file.

    But when I tried to download today, I got error message:

    “The account number that you have entered for downloading the pass book is of a member having a different name. In case you are sure that you have entered the correct account number, click OK to proceed or Cancel to go back and enter the correct number.

    Please note that if you proceed then another account number under the same establishment will not be permitted from this member registration.”

    As I was worried, I pressed Cancel and went back and verified my details. They are exactly the same as what I had entered last time. I tried all permutations and combinations, but its not working for me.

    Also they have removed the field for “Name as on PF slip” on page “Download ePassbook”. Looks like there is a problem in the system.

    Hi Manish,

    I had raised Pf transfer request from Satyam, Hyderabad Pf a/c to Syntel, mumbal Pf account in early 2010.
    after 4 1/2 years of struggle, 2 days back, I got reply from Kandivali Pf office that my amount got credited. I left Syntel in April 2011 and currently located in hyderabad.
    When I checked my Syntel Pf Ac balance online, I could n’t see amount credited and I could see balance as on 31-mar-14.
    I downloaded epf passbook which shows records updated as on 8-aug-13.
    Please help me where to check my current balance. Also, would like to know whether interest will be credited by Pf office for delay in crediting my amount
    Thanks,
    Praveen

  153. Vishal

    Hi Manish,

    I had requested for PF transfer from an Private trust(previous employer) to EPFO (current employer) in 2014. My previous employer says that the cheque has been sent and the same has been credited to my EPFO account.

    But I do not see the amount credited when I check for the UAN statement. First entry in UAN statement is for July 2013. Even when I check the balance by receiving SMS I do not see the correct amount.

    Please guide.

    Note: I have filed a RTI but have not received any reply.

    Thanks,
    Vishal

  154. Viswanath

    My company is depositing the money promptly. But, I dont see any interest deposited in the UAN passbook. It has been more than 2 years, my company and myself are depositing money to the trust. I would like to see my total money along with the interest.

  155. Avanthi

    I have registered in EPF Member Portal. But, at the time of passbook downloading I have by mistake entered wrong account number and clicked get pin option the pin displayed to my mobile and I have just make entry that number by clicking I agree option but nothing happen and again I re-logined and entered my original PF account Number then it shows the message i.e., “You have already downloaded passbook of one account under this establishment (or requested a passbook under this establishment) and are not permitted to download another account number under same establishment. In case both account numbers are yours, please apply in Form 13 for transfer of the old account to the new one”.
    So, kindly tell what I can do for downloading the passbook. Can I register again by giving another ID proof and Mobile number? Please suggest me.

  156. Suraj Todewar

    i,I have downloaded epf passbook and found that entry shown form April 2010 to till date but I have joined the organization in 2008 and have not found any entry for the 2008,2009 in my passbook as PF was deducting form 2008 only. So what is wrong with this and Whom should i need to contact for this?

    • In worst case, It might happen that your EPF was never deposited by your previous company . I suggest file a RTI and ask for this with EPFO if your previous employer deposited it !

    Hi,
    While I do the steps to activate my UAN , I found my DOB is wrongly mentioned. I informed it to my employer, but they said it will take its own time to do the change. shall I wait till then or shall I go ahead and activate my UAN ?

    Again I have logged in and make entry my original PF account Number then it shows the message i.e., “You have already downloaded passbook of one account under this establishment (or requested a passbook under this establishment) and are not permitted to download another account number under same establishment. In case both account numbers are yours, please apply in Form 13 for transfer of the old account to the new one”.
    So, kindly tell what I can do for downloading the passbook.
