Dear Peers,
Please advise us regarding the Forms to be filled and additional documents required for the withdrawal of the PF Amount in case of a death of a worker. The worker has expired while on leave.

Will his family get any financial benefit from the ESIC also?

well, in case of death employee's nominee or legal heir should apply in form - 20 (to claim provident fund),
form - 10 D (to claim pension) and form-5 IF (to claim assurance benefit under Employees' Deposit Linked Insurance '76)

and about esic, as you mention employee was on leave, his family can get funeral expenses but about other benefits, i have doubt they will get it.

In case of PF : Form No. 20- for Pf withdrawal by Nominee, Form 10 D- for benifit of pension of wife/children upto 2 No.
EDLI: for insurance benefit under EDLI scheme.
Documents required: Death certificate issued by District Authorities. If nomination is not done by the employee then forms should be supported by affidavit of nominee/legal heirs. Bank saving pass book of wife and eligible children(of same branch of SBI/Punjab National Bank or any bank authorised for pension purpose by PF authorities, 3 sets of passport size photographs of each eligible member under pension scheme, family details on company letter head, Date of birth certificate (in case of children issued by the school authorities), Certificate of company declaring that employee was in service of the company.

In case of ESI: At present, any family member can claim funeral expenses occurred on funeral as per limit. As employee death is not occurred in course employment family is not elligible for any other benefit under ESIC.
