PF Balance Check

PF Balance Check

PF Balance Check can be done through various modes. Provident Fund or PF is a social security scheme for employees wherein employees earning less than Rs.15,000 per month contribute a portion of their salary towards the fund as savings. Employers having 20 or more employees are required to obtain PF Registration and allot UAN for contributing employees. In this article, we look at the procedure for doing a PF balance check on the Unified Portal.

UAN Registration

To do a PF balance check on the Unified Portal, UAN must be allotted by the employer for the employee. UAN or Unified Account Number is a unique identity provided to all employees who are contributing members of Employee’s Provident Fund.

In case you are a first time employee, the employer must generate your UAN number after verifying and uploading your KYC details like Aadhar, PAN, identity and address proof on the Unified Portal.

In case you are an existing employee, provide your UAN provided by the previous employer to the new employer while joining employment. The new employer would verify your KYC details and transfer the UAN to the new employment.
