Dear Mr Harish,
Pl advice Employee concerned to apply for EPS Scheme Certificate in Form 10C together with necessary Documents.After receipt of Scheme, he can apply for EPS Pension from the date of attaining 58 Years.He can continue to be Member of EPF till he is in Employment.Once he applies for Pension, he will be issued with Pension Payment Order quantifying Pension Amount with all details

Thanks Srinath.
But the concerned employee had already completed 58 years and is still in employment.
My query is whether he can claim monthly pension now, while in service, since he had completed 58 years and no contributions are made to EPS anymore

Dear Mr. Harish, Yes, he can claim pension even if he continue contributing EPF. He is an excluded Employee and exempted for contributing to EPS. Regards, Anbu Loganathan HR
