As a tech-savvy person, it is always essential to be prepared for emergency situation.

You never know when you may need to access important information or financial services quickly.

Here are three important phone numbers you should save in your phonebook to help you in emergency situations.

Dial *99#:

The initial phone number that you ought to save is *99#. This feature can be particularly advantageous in situations where you lack access to the internet.

You can use this feature to send and request money, check your balance, and pending requests, and also change your UPI pin.

However, it is important to note that this service does not work for Jio users.

EPFO number:

The second phone number you should save is the EPFO number. You can check your balance in Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi, Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Bengali by replacing ENG with the first three letters of your preferred language.

To check the EPFO balance, you need to send a message to the number 7738299899 with the text “EPFOHO UAN ENG.”
