Download your Employees Provident Fund (EPF) E-Passbook

This post has been updated on May 15, 2017 with the new procedure.

Once upon a time, you could know your EPF Account details only once a year when the EPF office gave a printed statement — many months after the completion of the Financial Year.

However, over the last few years, Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has undergone a dramatic transformation.

In fact its metamorphosis, from an ugly caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly, is truly spectacular.

Some of the revolutionary changes introduced by EPFO include
- Receiving SMS of your EPF Account balance on your mobile phone, through an online facility;(See 'Have you checked your Employee Provident Fund (EPF) Account balance?').
- Downloading your detailed e-passbook online
- Online Transfer of your PF Account from one employer to another (which, in the past, was an extremely cumbersome and time-consuming affair)
- Withdrawal of your PF balance within a matter of days
- Online tracking of your claim status
- Direct credit of your money to your bank account, instead of waiting for a cheque
- Last, but not the least, is the introduction of Universal Account Number (UAN).

Accordingly, the earlier process of registration on the EPFO website and downloading your passbook has undergone a drastic change.

This revised procedure, to download your e-passbook, is detailed below.

Step 1 is to obtain your UAN and the Member ID from your employer; as also the mobile number you would have registered with EPFO.

Alternatively, you can know your UAN and its Status from the old Member ID (you can obtain this from your old PF Account Statement).

- Go to EPFO's Unified Portal : https://unifiedportal.epfindia.gov.in/
- Under 'Online Services' - 'FOR EMPLOYEES' click on the link 'UAN Member e-Sewa'

- Under 'Important Links' click on the link 'Know your UAN Status'

- Fill in the details required and proceed as directed

Step 2 is to activate your UAN in case the same is not activated.
- Go to EPFO's Unified Portal : https://unifiedportal.epfindia.gov.in/
- Under 'Online Services'-'FOR EMPLOYEES' click on the link 'UAN Member e-Sewa'
- Under 'Important Links' click on the link 'Activate UAN'

- Fill in the details required and proceed as directed

- Go to EPFO's homepage : http://www.epfindia.com/site_en/
- Under 'Our Services' click on the link 'For Employees'
