    I HAVE ONLY MY PF NUMBER AND I DON”T KNOW MEMBER ID LIKE TN/TR/34567/9876 CAN I DO ANYTHING
    WHAT IS MEMBER ID, ACCOUNT NUMBER AND EXTENSION I THIS PF NUMBER

    1. Mohammad Ali says

      PF account number: Last part of member ID is actually your PF number, for example – 9876 here is the PF account account. For every new employee, the employer allocates the EPF member ID and intimates the EPFO by contributing the first EPF.
      Extension in PF number: Extension is not a mandatory block. For example, TN/TR/34567/000/9876 – here 000 is the Extension.
