Checking the balance of m-EPF apk through the UMANG application is very easy. You can view or download the m-EPF apk book in 2 minutes using this application. The EPFO retirement fund body has adopted this all-in-one government application for its services. EPFO has changed all services from the EPF application to UMANG. Now the m-Sewa application of EPF is not maintained.
By the way, UMANG is a more useful application than m-Sewa, since this application would work for many services. You can use this application to verify your investment in NPS as well. The GST portal is also available in this application. In the coming days, you will see more government services on this unique platform.
It is prudent to regularly check the balance of EPF. As the EPF would be your main retirement savings plan. You must preserve and track the EPF account.
Steps of m-EPF apk Balance Check
Using UMANG is easy enough for all services related to EPF. Once you start using this application, you will forget the unified EPFO portal. Like all portal services for UAN members, they are available in the UMANG application. You can check the balance of EPF, download the book, claim the transfer and withdrawal of EPF and search the establishment. But, in this post, I would focus only on your current concern: the EPF balance inquiry. You have to follow the following steps.
1. Install UMANG App
To take advantage of the services of the UMANG application, you must have it on your smartphone. The application is available for Android, Windows and iOS platforms. Thus, any smartphone user can enjoy their benefit.
Therefore, you must download the UMANG application from your respective application store. For Android users, it would be Google Play Store. As of now, it is 10 MB of application. Therefore, it would not take too much space on your mobile.
During the installation of UMANG, you must choose the desired language and verify the mobile number through the OTP. Also ask for permission to call and SMS. The UMANG application suggests enrolling your “Aadhaar” since several government services are linked to it. Therefore, it would be beneficial to link the Aadhaar with the UAN. However, you can skip this step. Finally, you have to give your personal information.
2. Choose the Service
You would see many government services on the UMANG platform. You can search for EPFO. Otherwise, it is easier to search for “EPFO” in the search box. You would see the EPFO icon. Tap on this. The EPFO services would be opened. You would see that there are 3 types of services. These are employee-centered, general and employer-centered. To download the EPF book, you must go to the “Employee-Centered Section”.
You can obtain several m-EPF apk services through the UMANG application. The most useful is the view / download of the EPF book. Along with this, you can file a claim for transfer, withdrawal and EPF Advance from EPF. You can also track m-EPF apk claim through this application.
An employer can also use this application to verify the status of the transaction and the detail of the remittances. There are some general services, such as search of establishments and search of EPFO offices.
3. View/download EPF passbook
In this section, you would see the column to see the savings book. Tap on the blue ribbon. Now you have to enter the UAN of the required m-EPF apk account. Once you enter the UAN, an OTP will be sent to the registered mobile number. You must remember the registered mobile phone number while activating the UAN. If you do not know, it would be better to log in to the Unified portal and find out the mobile phone number.
After OTP authentication, you would see the details of the EPF account. It also shows the status of the EPF balance. The EPF balance is divided into employer contribution, employee contribution and pension contribution.

To view the detailed status of the EPF account, you must download the complete EPF book. There is a button to download the EPF book. The downloaded notebook contains monthly deposit information since your current account was opened. You would also see the entry for the previous EPF balance, if applicable.
As you can filter, checking the status of the EPF balance is very easy through the UMANG application. However, if you find it difficult, you can try other methods of checking balance of PF. Even missed calls and SMS can provide you with the details of the m-EPF apk account.
Note that the UMANG application would not work for Private Trust PF balance verification. You have to choose a different form of EPF to check the balance of the Exempt Trusts.
