Hi All,
My Dad joined a Private organization on 16th april of this year. And he expired on 22nd April(After Five days) on natural grounds.
He didn't have any contribution towards EPF - EDLI. Since he didnt receive his first month salary.
His CTC was 9795, with a basic pay of 2270.
How much compensation he is eligible for under EDLI. Please Help asap. Thanks in advance.

Hi Siva, One of the senior admin here had mentioned even one day’s attendance is enough to claim EDLI. I had spoke to employer regarding this, and they said he is eligible.

If your emloyer is ready to support you then please fill the requisite forms & submit to PF authorities.

It is not correct to say that even one day's attendance is enough for EDLI. However some insurance companies provide this facility of even one day's attendance If the Organisation has taken a policy with any Insuarnce company, based on the terms, the family can get Insurance amount. But under the Act the claim is not tenable. However, my knowledge on this subject is about 6 years old and I have not bothered to follow amendments on this matter. If there had been any, I sure will stand corrected
If the organisation is prepared to give, then why check on the legal position?

As per the PF act, all employees are covered under the from the day one. your father was on rolls of the company and became member under PF act, the dependents are eligible to claim for Pension and EDLI coverage of an amount for Rs.130000/-. Please check with HR manager , the declaration form 2 , who are the nominees and request him to process claims with PF office. you can claim the part of salary for the days worked and ensure that PF is deducted in the final settlement. Dependents are also eligible for Gratuity.

Subject - Re: Amendment to EDLI Scheme made on 8.1.2011

Dear all,

The above notification on EDLI amendment will create a revelution in the history of EDLI. Till 08.01.2011 those who die immedietely after registering with EPF, will get only a minimum amount of one month contribution. For ceiling slary, this will be Rs. Rs. 1018.55 (12%(employee)+3.67%(employer)=15.67%, 15.67%x6500 = 1018.55).

As per the new notification, EDLI amount will be arrived as follows. 1) Calculate the entitled amount based on PF deposit subject to a ceiling of Rs. 1,00,000. 2) 20 times of salary suject to a salary ceiling of Rs. 6500. As per this calculation ceiling will be Rs. 1,30,000. Out of the above (1) &(2) whichever is high will be given as EDLI. In general 20 times of salary subject to a salary ceiling of Rs. 6500 will be ensured towards EDLI. For ceiling salary this will be Rs. 1,30,000. 130000/1018.55 = 127.63. i.e. the minimum is enhanced by 127.63 times!

Therefore w.e.f 08.01.2011 there will be a minimum of 20 times of EDLI applicable salary (this may vary subject to salary). The maximum will be Rs. 1,30,000.

your faimily members are eligible for claiming PF and EDLI, once check and confirm that your father had signed the declaration form clearly giving nominees details, nominee can claim for payment of PF and EDLI . Please write a letter to settle the due amount inform that you are legal heir. It is the responsiblility of employer to cover and pay the dues. New EDLI polcy coverage is inforce and if employer has purchase policy from Insurace company, it should follow the act and pay. This EDLI act will come into force along with PF .

My friend joined in Provident Funds in an organisation (which is unexempted one) on 1st January 1974 and expired on 26th February 2011. This private organisation is very regular in PF remittance. How much EDLI is eligible for this sincere friend? Members are requested to reply please!

After getting registered with EPF, even if there is one day attendance; EDLI and Family pension is eligible. Whether salary received or not is not a matter.
Out of a CTC of 9795, if PF is paid on 2270; then EDLI will be 2270x20 = Rs. 45,400.
The formula (in this case) is salary x 20.
