Dear Colleague,

In my view the nominees of the deceased will get the EDLI Benefit under the following ground and it is suggested to kindly consult the PF Enforcement Officer of your Concerned PF Office and try to help the family:

1. With effect from 28.04.2021, the EPFO has increased the maximum benefit to Rs.7 lakh for the registered nominees of the deceased member.

2. The Ministry had increased the minimum amount of benefit to Rs.2.5 lakh on Feb 2018 for two years. However, the EPFO has further decided to continue with the same minimum benefit of Rs.2.5 lakh with retrospective effect from 15th Feb 2020.

3. Also, with effect from 28.04.2021, the EPFO has extended the benefit to the nominees of the deceased member who have changed their establishment for employment within a period of 12 months preceding the month of their death.

4. They get covered even if they shift jobs and work for another employer covered by the EDLI scheme before they complete one year of service.

5. The major amendment to the scheme is continuous service of one year not restricted to one establishment. Earlier, 12 months’ service was applicable under one establishment."

Kindly approach the PF Authorities and Support the deceased member's family as the UAN is one for the entire service.

All the Best and God Bless,
