EPFO’s New Service: You Will Be Notified If PF Money Not Getting Deposited

Employees whose monthly EPF or Employee Provident Fund contributions are not deposited by their employers will get intimated by the EPFO or Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation. Retirement fund body EPFO has a subscriber base of over 5 crore and manages a corpus of over Rs. 10 lakh crore. EPFO has been intimating its subscribers through SMS on credit of their respective monthly contribution into their accounts. But “the members whose contributions are not deposited in time remain uninformed. It has now been decided that an intimation by way of SMS/email shall be sent to members who have registered their Mobile Number / email ID against respective Universal Account Number,” EPFO said.

EPFO subscribers can check credit information on their provident fund through an online facility, called ‘e-passbook’, by logging into EPFO’s website. Subscribers can also access mobile app Umang to check the e-passbook. Umang is the only official app for EPFO services. Members registered on the UAN portal can also get their account details available with EPFO by giving a missed call at telephone number 011-22901406 from their registered mobile number.

While an employee’s 12 per cent contribution goes toward EPF kitty, 8.33 per cent out of the total 12 per cent of the employer’s contribution is invested in pension scheme EPS (Employees Pension Scheme). The balance 3.67 per cent is invested in EPF.
