PF Balance Check Issues

If both of them are not working due to any reasons, then the next best way is to check the PF Balance Check via the Passbook portal or through the UAN portal. (Sometimes both the above services might not work due to various reasons). Incase there is a delay in getting the balance SMS, use the passbook portal!

To check your PF Balance either by missed call or an SMS, you need to have your KYC done in your UAN portal for either your Bank Account Number, PAN, or Aadhaar! Otherwise, you won’t get the SMS from the EPFO. The SMS will also have details about your UAN, Aadhaar, Date of Birth, PAN, and the last contribution.
