Register online to view your EPF Passbook (sometimes also referred to as EPF ePassbook).
The online EPF facility at present is only for the members for whom the employer has uploaded the Electronic Challan Cum Return for the wage month of May 2012 onwards.
The Employees Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has introduced an epassbook facility for members, which enables you to check your EPF account online. The online EPF or EPF ePassbook is an online version of the employee’s provident fund account. You can check your EPF balance online anytime.
Any member of the employees’ provident fund can register. At the time of registration, details of the pf account(s) is not required.

EPF Passbook Online Advantages:
Only a registered member can download his/her pf account passbook. Passbook will be available for immediate download only for the active members for whom the employer has uploaded an electronic challan cum return (ecr) and remitted the dues. For members who have left the service before march 2012, the online epf pass book will be made available if the member makes a request for the same on the portal. EPF passbook of members having inoperative or settled accounts will not be displayed on the portal.
Usually, anything kept online is good to be made accessible from anywhere in the world. So, if you have your EPF online, you would be able to access it from anywhere in the world. The only concern about keeping EPF online is that it should be secured. And I’m sure that the government has taken enough measures to keep EPF Online safe and secured.
What will the Online EPF passbook contain?
Month and date wise transactions made in member’s account will be displayed in the pass book from the year for which the annual accounts were updated for the establishment for the first time since computerisation of the concerned field office. For example if the first annual accounts of member’s establishment were updated for the year 2008-09 by the concerned field office after its computerisation, the pass book will display the opening balance for year 2008-09 and all transactions thereafter.
