Including contributions, interest earned, withdrawals, and more, your EPF passbook contains all your PF information.

Account holders in the Provident Fund (PF) get a digital passbook from the Workers' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), also known as the EPF passbook. The EPF passbook details all of the account activity, including deposits, earnings, and withdrawals. The PF balance, employer contributions, and interest generated may all be tracked with the help of this digital passbook.

When asking for a loan or other financial service, the e-passbook may also be used as evidence of PF contributions and balance. Nevertheless, workers need to sign up for an EPFO account and activate their UAN before they can use this feature. The EPFO site is where you may check your PF balance and activate your UAN number.

Steps to activate UAN number

  • Visit the EPFO website.
  • Under the services section, select "For Employees".
  • From the list of services, select "Member UAN/Online Service".
  • Click on the "Activate UAN" link in the new window.
  • Aadhar number, name, date of birth, and mobile number must be entered along with your UAN or member ID.
  • To receive an OTP on your registered mobile number, click on "Get Authorization Pin".
  • You can activate your UAN by entering your OTP and clicking "Validate OTP and Activate UAN".
  • You will receive a password via your mobile number.
  • Accessing your EPF passbook and other services is now possible with your UAN and password.

Checking your PF balance on the EPFO website
To get started, go on over to, which is the EPFO's (Employees' Provident Fund Organisation) official website.

The "Member Passbook" option may be found in the "Services" menu. To access the services available to staff members, first go to the "For Employees" section of the main menu. Choose "Member Passbook" from the pull-down option.
