2. I may, however, submit that as per Regulation 87, an insured woman can claim maternity benefit from the appropriate branch office of ESIC. The term "insured person" has been defined under section 2(14) of ESI Act, 1948. When as per Regulation 4 of ESI (General) Regulations, 1950 as mentioned above, the benefits cannot be paid till start of benefit period or till 9 months period as per above Regulation, hence even after leaving of job, the entitlement of a person remains till the close of his benefit period.
3. However, the above position is not there in respect of accident cases, because for such accidental benefit cases, the person must be an "employee" on the time and date of his accident. This is with reference to various sections in Chapter V of said Act.

2. However, this is subject to fulfilment of conditions of minimum contribution days as laid down in respect of different benefits under said Act/Rules/Regulations. Without making further comments, I will also like to say that the appropriate office for defining and certifying eligibility of an insured person for various benefits under above Act is the appropriate Branch Office and appropriate Regional Office of ESIC (Regulation 51).

2. However, in case you want to continue ESIS medical facilities, you can opt for action under Rule 61 of ESI (Central) Rules, 1950 vide which after paying some nominal charges, you can continue getting medical facilities as a RETIRED INSURED PERSON. In order to complete above formalities, you are required to contact the ESIC Branch Manager of the branch office to which you are attached. Wish you happy retired life.
