EPF Mobile App-Activate UAN and Check EPF Balance

Few days back EPFO launched it’s first mobile app called as EPF Mobile App. Using this Mobile App, you can activate UAN and check your EPF Balance. This feature provides facilities to EPF members (employees), employer and pensioners. Let us see it’s features.

Update (21st Nov 2017)-Now using UMANG App (App developed by Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and provides around 42 services like like EPFO, PAN, NPS, CBSE, Pathshala, GST, HP Gas, Bharat Gas, Indane Gas, DigiLocker etc.) you can view EPF Passbook or Withdraw the EPF. Refer my latest post on the same “How to view EPF Passbook and withdraw EPF using Umang App?

Note- 

# EPF launched a SINGLE form for EPF Withdrawal, EPF Advance withdrawal and EPS claim, where you can withdraw EPF without EMPLOYER SIGNATURE. Refer my latest post on the same at “EPF Composite Claim Form -Single form to withdraw EPF without employer“.

1) How to update or correct EPF UAN details online or offline?

2) 4 EPF withdrawal changes effective from Feb 2016

3) New EPF Withdrawal Forms-Withdraw without employer signature

Along with this facility, Minister of Labour launched the two more facilities and are as below.

  • EPFO Mobile App (I will explain about it in below post).
  • SMS Based UAN Activation
  • Missed Call Service

EPF Mobile App

First you have to visit EPFO Portal and then to download the link, visit the below page of EPF Mobile App Download Page. The screen looks like below.

EPFO

Once you download the app in your mobile then the welcome screen looks like below.

EPF App_1

You notice that there are three sections in this app. One is meant for members (employees), the second is for pensioners and finally for an employer. When we click on MEMBER tab, then the screen looks like below.

EPF App_2

For employees, only two options are provided. One is to activate your UAN and the second one is to check your balance. To activate your UAN, click on the tab ACTIVATE UAN. Then the screen looks like below.

EPF App_3

Here, to activate UAN, you have to first select the office from the drop down list. Later, you have to enter Establishment Code, Extension, Employee Number, UAN number and your mobile number. Then check on the declaration link. Finally, click on ACTIVATE tab. This completes the activation process of UAN.

After that, you can check the EPF balance by clicking on tab BALANCE/PASSBOOK tab from main menu. The screen looks like below.

EPF App_4

To check or download the EPF passbook, you have to UAN number and registered 10 digit mobile number. Finally, click on tab SHOW.

Pensioners can check information about pension disbursement by entering the details like PPO number and date of birth.

SMS Based UAN Activation-

This facility is useful for those who not use the smartphone or not accustomed to apps. You have to send SMS to 7738299899. Once it is activated then the members can receive the alerts such as credit alerts, passbooks and the like.

You may know that EPFO already started SMS based EPF balance checking facility. Abou this, I already wrote a post and the link of the same below.

EPF Missed Call Service-

Along with above two facilities, EPFO also started a missed call service to know the EPF balance. The EPF member has to give a miss call to 011 2290 1406 to know about EPF balance or other account details.

Hope these facilities will resolve a lot of inconvenience caused by employees.

  3. HI

    I have a query, in my prev company notice period was 3 months. I had served two months(Feb and March-2018) and

    the third month they released me on LWP(leave without pay- didn’t get the salary for last month). In the third month i

    joined other company(April, 2nd). My current employer opened an account on the same day(2nd April) and my prev employer

    mentioned 30th April is my last day on relieving letter(included 3rd month). Now I am not able to transfer my pf

    amount to current amount due to overlap the date. Please guide me.

    Thanks

        • Ankit-Then request your current employer to issue UAN. In my view they did correct by retaining the same old EPF account.

          Reply
          • Ankit – you will have to ask your current employer to link the new PF id (member ID issued by your new employer) to your UAN. Did you submit Form 11 to your new employer? They would have to link your UAN to new member ID and then you should be able to see that on UAN member services.

            Reply
  46. Sir
    Those who are already activated UAN on portal should again activate after downloading mobile app ?
