Know your EPF (Provident Fund) balance online

It was a year ago that EPFO (Employee Provident Fund Organisation) announced that it will make the balance in one's PF account will be made available online.

What it means? You need not waste your time in the PF office to know your balance, you need not wait for the account statement (which normally issued after 3 or 4 years in arrears).

How do I know my balance? Simple. Go to the following link, which is the All India PF office link. Click the "Our Regional Sites" on the left hand side.

It will open up the regional / state sites. You can check your state site to see whether they have this online balance checking. I have checked for Chennai & Bengaluru office sites and they are working. Chennai is updated till Dec 2010. The Technology Capital is updated till 2008 (It is a shame!!!). Below are the quick links for the Chennai & Bengaluru regional sites, where you can check your balance.

Bengaluru : http://stg1.kar.nic.in/epf/memberlogin.aspx (updated till 2008)

Chennai : http://www.epfochennai.tn.nic.in/obcb/oblogin.aspx (updated till 2010)

Check your state's PF office site : http://epfindia.nic.in/RegSites.html

Following are the state links available:
1 Ahmedabad (Gujarat)
2 Bengaluru (Karnataka)
3 Chennai (Tamil Nadu)
4 Dehradun (Uttarakhand)
5 Delhi (North)
6 Faridabad (Haryana)
7 Goa
8 Gurgaon (Haryana)
9 Hyderabad (Andhra Pradesh)
10 Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh)
11 Tiruvananthapuram (Kerala)
12 Mangalore (Karnataka)
13 Mumbai - I (Bandra, Maharashtra)
14 Pune (Maharashtra)
15 Jaipur (Rajasthan)
16 Surat (Gujarat)
17 Thane (Maharashtra)
18 Vadodra (Gujarat)

PF is a good method to save your money for the future. It is your hard earned money. I noticed several times that transfer not happening properly on time, interest is wrongly calculated, Interest not calculated while transferred. So, have a tab on the balance and track it.

Please share your experience in checking the balance in your state. It will help other readers.

Cheers,
Gopal

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress)
was hacked and I ended up losing a few months
of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any
solutions to prevent hackers?

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon.

Many thanks

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
