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?

From India, Delhi
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.

Just wanted some wmorer clarification over the PF schemes for death cases-

Also, is it mandatory to give all family members photographs and details.

Please clarify. Thank You!
