Retirement fund body EPFO had launched a mobile application and other phone-based services for accessing PF account details for its over 3.54 crore subscribers, 49.22 lakh pensioners and 6.1 lakh employers.
The three new mobile-based services meant for EPF members are a Mobile Application, SMS-based Universal Account Number Activation and a Missed Call service.
PF SMS alert has started from Friday. Customers who want to know their total PF balance can just give a missed call on 01122901406 from their registered mobile numbers. Post that the customers will get an SMS alert immediately.
Customers have to download application from the EPFO website and then activate their UAN accounts from their mobile phones and access their accounts to view monthly credits and details available with EPFO.
Once UAN is activated, the member becomes eligible for all services under the programme such as credit alerts, passbooks and the like. This new service is helpful mainly to those members who may not have easy access to computers or smartphones.
EPFO also has in place a Short Code SMS service, which helps members get their details along with contribution and PF balance through an SMS to 7738299899.
