If you are a salaried employee, and you have an EPF (Employee Provident Fund) or PF (Provident Fund) account, you are permitted to withdraw your accumulated capital during the period of your employment under particular circumstances. Although the Employee Provident Fund scheme has been introduced by the EPFO (Employee Public Provident Fund Organisation) to meet financial goals for retirement, employees can make PF withdrawals before retirement is reached. It is possible for any employee to make a claim for withdrawal of funds, and this may be done online through the official EPFO portal.  Nonetheless, when a claim is made, an employee can track the claim made, and this is important to check whether the claim has been executed seamlessly. Therefore, it is imperative for employees to learn how to track the PF claim status. 

The EPF Claim Status

It is important to know what the EPF or EPFO claim status means. Essentially, this translates to the latest details or information that is available regarding your application for a claim to make an EPF or PF withdrawal

You can easily find out about the stage your claim application has reached on the EPFO portal. Additionally, knowing about the status of your claim for withdrawal permits applicants to be ready in case there is any delay or error during the processing of the claim. With advanced technology at the forefront of any financial processes today, you are able to check your claim status in different ways, not least of which is through the EPFO website. 

EPFO Claim Status 

Employees who wish to withdraw funds from their EPF or PF account and make a claim application for the same, or those who have already made a claim, can conveniently track their PF claim status either online or offline. In the following paragraphs, you will get to know both ways of tracking your status and the different methods employed in each. 

Ways to Check Your Claim Status Online

The following are the ways to check the status of your EPF or PF claim status online: 

  • On the UAN Member Portal

Employees are able to check the claim status of their PF/EPF withdrawal application via the UAN Member Portal. You can follow the steps below to do so:

Step #1 – First you have to log into your UAN Member portal with your UAN (Universal Account Number) and your password.

Step #2 – Go to “Online Services” and click on this. Then, go to “Track Claim Status” and click on this. 

Step #3 – All the details and information regarding your withdrawal claim and its status will be displayed. 

Note: If you have made an offline claim application for a withdrawal, you will not be able to track your status through the UAN member portal. Instead, you can track your claim status through the EPFO official portal. 

  • On the EPFO Portal or Website

You can check your claim status through the EPFO website by navigating the steps below:

Step #1 – Head over to the official portal of the EPFO.

Step #2 – Click on the option “Our Services”, and then choose to click on the tab “For Employees”. 

Step #3 – You will be redirected to another page, and then you must click on the “Service” tab. Next, click on “Know Your Status”. 

Step #4 – You will be required to enter your UAN and the CAPTCHA provided. Then click on “Search”. 

Step #5 – Click on “Member ID” and fill in the details. Now click on “View Claim Status”. You will be able to check on the status of your claim. 

Note: You can check on your claim status online by using your PF/EPF account number without the need for the UAN. This can also be done through the EPFO portal by selecting the option of the state and city you are residing in. All you need to do is enter your PF account number after this, and you can view your claim status. 

  • On the Umang App

You can also check your claim status via the Umang App. All you need to do is go to the option to click on the EPFO portal first, and the process is similar to the one in which you check your status through the EPFO portal. However, in this process, an OTP will be generated and you must enter this to check your claim status. The details you would be able to track through the Umang App include your tracking ID, the kind of claim made, the date of the claim, and its overall status. 

Ways to Check Your Claim Status Offline

Applicants are able to track the stages in which their claim is by offline methods too. These involve sending an SMS from their mobile numbers linked to the UAN portal. If employees are following this method of knowing about their claim status, they must pay attention to the SMS format while sending a message to track their status. The most recent SMS format is “EPFOHO UAN LAN”, where “LAN” represents the language in which employees want their claim status displayed. For instance, if you wish to get your claim status in English, the LAN would be replaced by ENG. 

Although the more popular way to check your claim status is the online route through the EPFO portal, you may select another offline method, such as the “missed call” method. This involves sending a missed call from your cell number registered with your UAN to a toll-free number: 011-2290 1406. After the missed call is made, applicants automatically receive an SMS informing them of their claim status.

Concluding Lines

It is easy to check the status of your EPF/PF withdrawal claim online or offline. However, it is important to remember that all the information linked to your claim must be updated and in order. For instance, the EPFO cannot process a claim or give you its status without your UAN details being linked to your KYC information like your PAN and Aadhaar. It is imperative that all your information is updated for your claim process to be seamless, apart from knowing the claim status.
