Employees Provident Fund (EPF) is a mode of saving where both the employee and the employer contribute an equal amount. It gives guaranteed tax-free returns. The amount saved in EPF can be availed by the person upon his/her retirement or after switching jobs. Those who want to know or check their EPF or account balance can do so in very simple ways like via SMS, by giving a missed call, or can visit the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) website.
