debora-sumopayrollThe employer makes the contribution to these schemes on behalf of the employees. The employee contribution is deducted from the salary before they credit the salary. Employees themselves need not make any direct payment to these schemes.
The contribution of employees is calculated as:
For EPF 12%
For EPS None
For EDLI None
The contribution of Employer is calculated as:
For EPF 3.67%
For EPS 8.33% or Rs. 1,250/-
For EDLI 0.50 or max Rs. 75/-
The chief motive of the EDLI scheme is to offer financial security to the family members of the policyholder (deceased person). Family members mean spouse, unmarried daughter or male child up to 25 years of age. The employee cannot choose which of the three schemes, EPF, EPS or EDLI, that he/she wants to opt for, but they are transferable with any change in the job. The new employer will continue to make payment in the existing account only.

biju.josephIf an employee joined on 1995 and opt for 8.33% higher EPS contribution, then what will be the pension calculation:-
1) The average last 60 months EPS contribution is supposed to be Rs.21450/- , then Rs21450x35/70 = Rs.10725 pension per month
2) Or it will be divided in three parts (a) i.e. 6500/- (till revision of ceiling to 15000) (b) 15000 to till supreme court ruling (c) and from Supreme court Ruling to till retirement. (a+b+c) will be the final pension per month.
