Yes. The government has made it extremely easy for employees to check their provident fund (PF) account balance when ever they wish to. Not only can you check your PF Balance online, but you can do it via text as well as by giving a missed call. Checking PF balance via missed call If you are already registered on the UAN portal, by giving a missed call on 011-22901406 from your registered mobile number, you will be able to get your PF details. Checking PF balance via text message For getting your Provident Fund account balance, you should send an SMS to 7738299899. The message should read: EPFOHO UAN ENG, where ENG is the first three characters of the preferred language. So, if you want to receive the message in Marathi, then type in EPFOHO UAN MAR. The facility is available in English, Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi, Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Bengali. Please note, for both the above ways of retrieving PF balance to work, your UAN must be seeded with your bank account number, Aadhaar and PAN. If not, you can ask your employer to seed them for you.
