Dear Pradeep G Shah, There is no connection with EPF Pension and ESI. Whether you draw pension from EPF or not you may avail all the Medical Facilities from ESI. Abbas.P.S

I was member of ESI till 1998 but after that my salary crossed the limit now in the year I had taken retirement and getting family pension . Can my family be a member of ESI if I pay them their required premium.
Please inform as the pension given is very very low.
