EPFO will credit 8.10% interest on PF deposits this year. Know step-by-step guides on how to check PF balance.
Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) is likely to transfer the 8.10% interest on your PF accumulations for fiscal year 2021-22 soon. EPFO announces the PF interest rate for the current fiscal every year and this year it has slashed the PF interest rate to 8.10%. Every year PF interest used to get credited to the subscribers’ account somewhere around Diwali or later, but this time it will get credited a bit earlier. As reported by Zee News, the PF interest will be credited by July 15. Once the interest amount is credited, PF account holders can check their account balance from the comfort of their home by using any of these methods.
