Checking Your Employee Provident Fund (EPF) Account Balance Online — Is Some Data Better Than No Data?

Thanks for visiting Capital Advisor. I frequently update this blog to cover various topics on personal finance such as investment strategies, financial products that you should buy and ones that you really should stay away from, financial calculators, emerging themes such as early retirement and financial independence, and much more. You can Subscribe through Email and receive new articles directly in your Inbox or you can Subscribe through the RSS Feed and receive new articles in your feed reader.

So D’s office sends this email (excerpts below) –

Please find attached detailed guidelines for checking your Employee Provident Fund (EPF) account balance online through http://www.epfindia.nic.in/MembBal.html.

– Click on http://www.epfindia.nic.in/MembBal.html.

– Select <State>. Select <City>.

– Enter <Company> Establishment Number (for example: 00ABCDE).

– Leave Extension Number blank.

– Enter your EPF account number (for example: 000MNOP or MNOP).

– Enter your name and mobile number.

– Click the “I Agree” Check Box.

– Click the Submit button.

On successful submission of above information, you will receive the details through SMS on the given mobile number.

Excited, I immediately tried with D’s EPF Account Number only to see the following error message –

Data not available. For details please contact respective EPF Office.

I tried permutations and combinations of D’s data but to no avail. Disheartened, I then tried with my EPF Account Number and, perhaps thanks to some good karma, I thought I had some success because I got this message –

Your EPF balance has been sent through SMS on your specified mobile number. You shall receive the SMS shortly.

I did get the SMS almost immediately but was then disheartened again to see that the balance was reflected only up to 31-Mar-2011.

But then I guess some EPF data is better than no EPF data.
