4 Ways to Check EPF Balance Today!

EPF or Employees’ Provident Fund, is one of the easiest ways to save funds for the purpose of retirement. As the amount gets deducted from the employee’s salary every month, it becomes easier to add to the corpus being accumulated in the fund. Moreover, the employer also adds an equal amount (12% of the employee’s dearness allowance and basic salary) to the employees’ provident fund.

Even when you change your jobs, you can easily continue with the same EPF account as you will have only one UAN across all your jobs. On top of this, the EPFO also allows you to withdraw a part of your EPF corpus in case of emergencies, under certain circumstances.
