Employee Provident Fund (EPF) acts as a saving tool for the employees. The employee and the employer contribute an equal amount towards savings that can be availed upon retirement or after switching jobs. The interest rate applicable to the EPF contributions is 8.5% for FY 2020-21.
You can now check your EPF balance via SMS, by giving a missed call, via the EPFO app/Umang app, and the EPFO Portal/Umang App. By allowing employees to access the EPF balance, they can easily:
Plan their expenses well
Avail a loan against their EPF balance
Check the status of their PF balance
