If you have not removed the employee from the rolls of your Company till his date of death, then his family will get all PF benefits including EDLI. You can close his file and consider his death date as LWD.

In order to ensure the nominees get PF benefits, you could had considered his non working days as leave without wages. To get EDLI benefits employee should be on rolls and contributing to PF at the time of death.

KK!HRYou need to indicate his LWD as the day of death otherwise on the date of death, he is not a member of PF and the bereaved family will be put to tremendous loss. I happened to deal with a similar matter and it is taking more than two and a half years for the poor family to get the due benefits

Did you include the deceased's death date in any PF records or returns? You can still apply for the death benefit if this is not the case.
You can give the EPFO an undertaking that the deceased was on authorised sick leave. Because there were no wages paid from the 8th of December 2021, so in January 2022, our Consultant or HR Personnel who handles PF work entered the date of exit incorrectly. Without checking with HR or management, the Consultant clerk assumed the member had left the service and entered the date of leaving.
We sincerely apologise for this unintentional human error and respectfully request that you please excuse us and consider the deceased DLIS claim for settlement, as well as extend your cooperation to assist the bereaved family in order to save them from the tremendous loss.
