These court decisions are worth reading in case of employee dying enroute to office and having ESIC coverage.

From India, Pune
An EPF member's nominee /s are eligible for following irrespective of nature of death. 1. Pension minimum 1000/month 2. EDLI ( Employee deposit linked insurance)- 24 times average salary for the last 12 months. Salary means salary on which EPF contribution was dedcucted). Rough calculation for the pension is pensionable salary( average last 60 moths salary on which EPF contribution was deducted) X pensionable years( no of years contribution was made to EPF) divided by 70. For applying you have to use a combined application form (copy attached) routed through employer ( If he has a UAN no linked to aadhar he can submit online directly). Expect minimum pension to go considerably up during this budget, to meet an SC ruling of 2016 & EPFO's circular dated 23 Nov17. Please get the specified forms from the EPFO for this & attach to your combined application form. ESIC also allows some compensations but I don't know whether one can avail both, funeral expenses can be availed from ESIC.
Reqirements with application form: 1. Bank account single account in the name of nominee ( no joint account) in EPFO designated banks , defer from state to state but SBI is apllicable for all states) 1st page of pass book to be attached. 2. Death certificate of member. 3. Photos of nominee/s. 3 sets. I am presuming that he was un married since you are asking eligibility for his parents. If he was married his wodow & children are eligible for pension irrespective of nomination.

Remember that in case of death pension is eligible even if he has contributed only for one month to EPF, minimum 10 years service is not applicable in death cases. No matter whether he died on duty, as on death he should be on employment. Please make sure that employer contributes even for the month of his death, though normally all employers will do that. Cause of death is not known now, in case of a motor accident , as per motor accident act victim is eligible for 10 times the average income declared in income tax return for the last 4 years. For this you have approach a lawyer specialising in death cases.

Mr. Harsh Kumar Mehta is very correct. It has been decided by the Apex Court that the incumbent has to prove "during the course of employment" as per the act . Otherwise it will be deemed as natural death out of the perview of the Act.

Dear colleague,
In my 18th January, 2018 post I have mentioned that Nominee / legal heir is eligible for benefit under Deposit Linked Insurance Fund.
Under this scheme the maximum benefit is Rs.6 lakhs and not just Rs.6 lakhs. It is 30 times of last 12 months average monthly salary (Basic+DA) or Rs.15,000/- whichever is lower.
Alongwith this there is also an additional maximum amount of Rs.1,50,000/- payable as a Bonus.
