PF is the popular name for EPF or Employees' Provident Fund. It is a government-established savings scheme for employees of the organised sector. The EPF interest rate is declared every year by the EPFO (Employees Provident Fund Organisation) which is a statutory body under the Employees' Provident Fund Act, 1956.

To check EPF balance, make sure that the employer has activated your Universal Account Number (UAN). Universal Account Number or UAN is unique for all the employees enrolled under the EPF scheme. A UAN number is allotted by the Employee Provident Fund Organization (EPFO). All employees should have only one UAN during their working life irrespective of the companies they change.
