Cash benefits under the scheme are generally linked with contributions paid. The benefit period starts three months after the closure of a contribution period. The two type of periods are elucidated below.

The benefit period corresponding to the contribution period April to September is from January (2023) to June (2023) and hence if the employee had paid the required contribution (say 78 days for sickness benefit) in April- Sept (2022) he will get the benefits till June 2023
