Dear Sir,
I have no adequate study of ESIC but I can certainly tell you about EPF, family pension under 1995 pension scheme as well as deposit linked insurance scheme. Please confirm whether the deceased staff member was covered under EPF or he had opted out.

Check with local ESI branch office and inform about the case. They will help and dependent benefits will get the family members. Inform immediately.

Pension for dependents from ESIC and P F scheme as well. Submit origional certificate of death.
26th November 2013 From India, Ahmadabad
If the staff member died due to only illness, then the case cannot be called as 'employment injury' under Employees' State Insurance Act, 1948. if the employer has submitted accident report to the appropriate branch office manager of ESIC and if the case is admitted as that of employment injury by appropriate Branch Office, only then the question will arise for payment of dependant's benefit to the dependants of the insured person (staff member).
Under ESI Act, 1948 there is no provision of any lump-sum payment of dependants benefit. The amount of dependant's benefit has no relation with the age of the deceased insured person. The said dependant benefit is paid monthly to the eligible dependants as defined in said Act.
The daily rate of dependant's benefit is 90% of the standard benefit rate in the contribution period corresponding to the benefit period in which employment injury occurs. Kindly see Rule 58 of ESI (Central) Rules, 1950.
With regards;

I am also not aware of ESIC rules. But if the employee has contributed at least one month for EPS (employees pension scheme which is part of EPF Since 16/11/1995, in effect if he was a member of EPF at the time of death,even if the contribution was only for one month.),his wife & children are entitled for Widow pension for life time& children pension up to age 25.Please note that Widow pension is much more than the pension entitlement of member.
In addition under EPF, widow is entitled for an insurance amount as part of EDIL( employees deposit linked scheme which is part of EPF scheme)
I have given the details of how to claim these on another thread of similar case on this board. Please check that.

HI ESI wil not pay anything to the demised employee’s family. ESI can be utilised while alive. Only funeral benfit will be provided to the demised employee’s family.

Dear All
ESIC will provide following benefits to the dependents of the deceased employee.
1. Funeral expenses Rs. 10000/-
2. Pension ( monthly ) to the dependents such as wife, mother, father, children.
3. Amount of monthly pension depends upon the monthly salary of employee on which contribution is made.
4. There is a schedule with the ESIC deptt in which pension amount has been determined in commensurate with the monthly salary.
thanks to all.

dear Mehta ji ,how much claim dependent got in road accident under esi schme ,when road accident occured outside the company
6th December 2013 From India
Dear All,
To the best of my knowledge, information & belief, widow & children pension as well as Deposit Linked Insurance benefits will be paid by
the EPFO and not by the ESIC provided that the deceased employee was member of EPF. EPS 1995 pension is payable to widow & children
if the member was married & had a family. In this case parents are not eligible for any pension. Moreover, in the case of death of an unmarried
or divorcee member, his dependent father is eligible for pension, not his mother. Mother is eligible only if father has predeceased.

15th July 2017 From India, Delhi
From the comments on this forum it appears that ESIC benefits are available only if the death was due to " employment related injury. Can some one clarify, if an employee was under EPF & ESIC & death was due to 'employment related injury' can he claim benefits from both EPF & ESIC ?
16th July 2017 From India, Thane
If death occurred due to employment related accident, then the dependents are eligible for pension benefits from both EPF and ESIC.
29th July 2018 From India, Bhadreswar

Dear Gobsbp,
Your reply seems to be the right answer. However I have a few queries, 1.how do ESIC decide who is the "Dependent" , that dependent Or dependents( some posts here says that more than one person can get pension) ID proof etc may also be necessary. 2. Another query is if a person is eligible for both EPF & ESIC pension can he avail both? 3. What is TIC?
5th August 2018 From India, Thane

Dear Srinath,
Thanks for the reply, my main query was if a person is eligible for both EPF pension & ESIC pension can he avail both?
7th August 2018 From India, Thane
Yes both can be availed only in case death has occurred during the course of employment and due to the employment. in the above mentioned case(Heart attack) may not considered due to the employment since it is considered as illness. Employee family get's funeral benefit from ESIC . PF pays one time payment of EDLI and applicable pensions(Widow/Children/Orphan/Dependent) through EPS.

Dear Mr Raghavan, my main query was if a person is eligible for both EPF pension & ESIC pension can he avail both?
Please note that there is no "EPf Pension" But, EPS-The Employees Pension Scheme, 1995
ESI & EPF are independent beneficial Central Legislations.There is no bar to avail pension subject to eligibility from both simultaneously.

hanks Srinath & Rreddy.
Dear Mr. Reddy,
EPS pension can be availed irrespective of the nature of death, only two conditions are:1. at least a month of contribution should have been made to EPS & he should have been on employment on the day of death, should be on the pay roll not necessarily working on that day.

(a) Dear member, it will be more better if you indicate whether (a) the employer has filed Accident Report with the concerned Branch Office of ESIC, (b) whether any FIR has been lodged with the concerned police authorities (b) If FIR lodged what are the findings of the police authorities, (c) whether Post Mortom was conducted by the hospital authorities (d) on filing accident report, whether ESIC authorities have conducted any investigation in the matter.
(b) Hope, as employer or an officer of the employer you will also discuss the issue with the concerned Branch Office Manager of ESIC to which your said employee was attached.
