Around 50 million provident fund subscribers can check their account statements online as EPFO (Employees Provident Fund Organisation) on Friday launched its e-Passbook service.
The new concept called EPF Account Passbook allows active members to download their e-passbook multiple times in a month. The PF department no longer provides hard copy of the annual PF statement. The EPF members can access e-passbook on the EPFO website after getting themselves registered on the site. The registered EPF members can obtain the e-passbook after entering establishment code, PF number and member name as mentioned in the PF slip.

E-passbook is an online version of the PF status book, where employee’s PF status and transactions are recorded and can be tracked. Month and date wise, all the transactions made in the account are displayed in the e-passbook. It will also include additional details such as name, and date of birth of the employee.

E-passbook will be available for active members only. No passbook shall be available for settled, inoperative or negative balances accounts. No passbook will be available for exempted establishments. To avail the e-passbook facility, EPF subscribers need to register themselves on the EPFO website and provide all the necessary details.

For members who are not active and have not settled their accounts, an e-passbook is available on special requests. The e-Passbook shall contain transaction-wise details of account (all credits and debits) since the month for which the details for the establishment have been processed in new application software at the field offices.

To get an e-passbook, an EPF subscriber needs to register their account on EPFO portal. The registration does not involve creation of any username or password. There is no need to create and remember any user id and password. You have to use your mobile number and any of your following identification proof number such as PAN, AADHAR, bank account, voter ID, passport or driving license to register and thereafter to login.

After adding your name and EPF account number, you need to click on ‘Get PIN’. The PIN is sent by SMS to you. This PIN authorisation is required every time you download the e-passbook and check your EPF balance.
