Dear Seniors,
What are the benefits under EDLI Scheme, pl provide in detail that what the nominees / dependents will get benefits after the death of the member, what would be the calculation at that time under EDLI Scheme.

Sir,
EDLI is an insurance benefit which is paid to the PF members who die while in service. The benefit is linked to the provident fund amount lying at credit and the maximum benefit is restricted to Rs.1,00,000/- if the employee worked with the same employer for less than 12 months. However, if an employee worked with the same employer for 12 months or more he will be entitled to get the benefits of average wages for last 12 months multiplied by 20. The maximum average wage can be Rs.6500 only. so the maximum benefit would be Rs.130000/- The benefit will be paid to the same nominees/legal heirs who are eligible to receive the provident fund amount of the deceased member.

Dear Sachin,

All employers to whom the Employee's Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 applies, have a statutory liability to contribute to Employee's Deposit Linked Insurance scheme, 1976 to provide the benefit of Life Insurance to all their employees. EDLI is an insurance benefit which is paid to the PF members who die while in service.

As per Employees’ Deposit Linked Insurance (Amendment) Scheme 2011

Method of calculation is as follows:

Higher of the below mentioned would be paid to the nominee of the deceased:

Payout to the nominee of the deceased would be higher if the average monthly wages drawn (subject to a maximum of INR 6500) during the 12 months preceding the month in which he died, multiplied by 20 times

OR

An amount, equal to the average balance in PF account of the deceased during preceding 12 months period.

If average balance is below Rs.50,000, Rs.50,000 is paid

If average balance is above Rs.50,000, in this case Rs.50,000 + 40% of the balance above Rs.50,000 subject to maximum of Rs.1,00,000 is paid

Maximum amount Payable is INR 130,000

Example:

Mr. Rao was working with ABC Ltd., died on 15th April 2011. His date of Joining was 1st April 2008 and his current basic salary was Rs 6500 per month. His average PF balance for the preceding 12 months was Rs.1,50,000.

Step-1: Calculation based on wages

12 month average pay = 6500

20 times of the same = 6500×20 = 1,30,000

Step-2: Calculation based on PF balance

Average balance in PF account = 1,50,000

Hence, 50,000 + (1,00,000×40%) = 90,000

Higher of the two i.e. Rs.1,30,000 is paid as benefit.
