Days after giving sanction to increased interest rates in provident fund account, retirement body Employees Provident Fund Organisation on Monday, November 29, announced that 21.28 crore accounts have been credited with the interest rate of 8.5 per cent for FY 2021-22. According to reports, as many as six crore account holders will  will get the benefit by the end of next month. Earlier this year, the EPFO decided to keep the rate of interest unchanged on provident fund deposits at 8.5 per cent for the financial year 2020-21. Before that, representatives of the labour ministry had asked the finance ministry to fast track the decision of fixing the interest rates.

In a tweet on Monday, the EPFO wrote, “21.38 crore accounts have been credited with an interest of 8.50% for the FY 2020-21. @LabourMinistry @esichq @PIB_India @byadavbjp @Rameswar_Teli”.

The EPFO had decided to keep the interest rates unchanged for FY2021-22 in the view of the Covid-19 pandemic, where more withdrawals were witnessed than contributions. The interest rate fell to an all time low in FY2020-21 when the pandemic had just hit the country.

As the retirement body credited the accounts with the additional rate of interest for the current financial year, many people confirmed that they had received the amount. But how did they check the account balance? You can choose not to depend on you employer to share the details, as you can check the balance any time digitally using different methods. These include checking from the Umang App, EPFO member e-sewa website, SMS or missed call. Read more on them below.
