hi can anyone tell me the gratuity calculation in case of death?
13th January 2010 From India, Calcutta
Gratuity ( In death Case ) = Last Drawn Wages (Basic + DA) *No of years worked * 15 /26
Note->> Completion of minimum 5 years continuous service condition is not necessary in case of death of an employee.

Dear all,
I have to know if in case of death we will consider 58 years service for the calculation or only completion service completed by the employees during the employment.

How to calculate gratuity in death case of working 7 years
9th July 2019 From India, Jaipur
In case the continuous service (working days) is more than 4 years and 250 days. The employee is eligible for gratuity.
The formula for calculation is already provided in the thread.
However, in my experience where we have settled the gratuity of a permanent worker in case of his death, the LIC settled the full claim considering till age 58 yrs. Though the worker when died was only 35 yrs.
The MP Govt Website too calculates the death cum retirement calculation on same basis.
The Gratuity Act, however is silent in this regards and clarify only that regardless of years of service Nominee / Legal heir is eligible to claim for Gratuity in case of death of worker / employee.

" LIC settled the full claim considering till age 58 yrs"
Yes the above is true but subject to employer opting for special rider while availing group gratuity scheme with LIC.
