Hi all,
I have some doubts regarding FPS which is 8.33% of basic towards employer contribution in PF.
1.When will FPS be given to the employee i.e after how many years of service?
2. How will FPS be paid i.e monthly/lumpsum? If monthly, for how many months? if lumpsum, how much amount(calculation)? If both, Can employee have the choice to select the mode(monthly/lumpsum)?
Seniors...pls illustrate with example...

First of all, FPS is no more in operation right now. FPS has been replaced by EPS (Employee Pension Scheme) in 1995 and FPS is now known as Ceased Pension Scheme.
Point by Point:
1. Continuous service of 10 years is required for being eligible for EPS.
2. Option for reduced pension on ceasing employment at the age after 50 years
3. 1/3 of the pension amount can be commuted and be taken as lumpsum amount. Rest is paid as monthly amount.
EPS amount cannot be withdrawn before 50 years (as discussed in point no. 2)
For any other specific query, pl write.

PF fund can be transferred by filling form 13. Regarding EPS, you can obtain Scheme Cerificate from employer. You can obtain this from every employer you work with and then finally you can submit it to RPFC and get the consolidated amount as one time payment.

yes you will remain eligible to get pansion as pension will not be provided by the previsous but from the PF office but you will only be elligble to get this pension after the completion of the age 50.

Yes you will get the Pension. But Pension will be provided from the EPF office and not by the employer. But you will get this pension only after the completion of the Age 50 years
