* if a EPF&EPS member dies his widow will be getting epf & pension as per pf rule
* he / she need to fill from 20 & 10d for the claim with proper documents need to submitted to the pf office
* nominee form or family members form or declaration form need to fill

widow will be eligible for pension as well EDLI provided you have completed his formalities .
you might have taken form 2 and while preparing salary for the month of may deduct his PF and deposit with authorities ,enroll him as member .

Dear VJ Sharma,

1. His widow will get a monthly pension of Rs. 2051 & two children (at a time) will get Rs. 513 each till they attain an age of 25 years. After the elder child crossing 25 years, third one become eligible. Similarly all the children will get pension.

2. Regarding EDLI, his family will get an amount equivalent to PF amount. If he is exempted from EDLI, then an amount of Rs. 62,000 will get from Insurance Authority in lieu of EDLI.

Note : Previously ceiling amount of EDLI was Rs. 60,000. Now it is enhanced to Rs. 100,000.

Dear Sir,
An employee joined us on 9.4.2012. He passed away suddenly after a heart attack (at the age of 46). He did not fill in Form 2.
What are the formalities to be completed for his widow to receive the P.F. benefits.
Thanks & regards

Dear Mithil
Your query is incomplete.
Please clarify the date of death of the concerned employee and also whether any deduction of PF was made from his salary towards PF and you deposited his PF and pension contribution with the EPFO and also whether he was allotted any PF membership number or not ?
