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.

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.

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)

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.

#Anonymousdear 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
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.

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?

1 Funeral benefit of Rs10,000/-
2 Pension for Spouse & Children
TIC Means Temporary Identity Card
1 Refund of EPF Accumulations to Nominee
2EDLI Benefit to Nominee
3EPS Pension to Spouse & Children/Parents
Please be specific in your query giving factual information about deceased Employee

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.

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.

(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.
