According to EPFO guidelines, an employee shall cease to be the member of Pension Fund from the date of attaining 58 years of age or from the date of vesting admissible benefits under the scheme, whichever is earlier. However, in cases of continuation of service, the employer needs to pay the Employees’ Provident Fund Contribution till the date of his or her leaving the service, irrespective of the age of the member.

Can you confirm why do you want to deduct PF after retirement of an employee?
I would not recommend to deduct PF after 58 years because after completion of 58 years related employee is eligible to get pension benefit.
Agarwal BDRetirement age in many organizations now is 60 years, so PF deduction is based on retirement and not only 58 years of age.

sitaramsnEPF and EPS are exclusive benefits. Though employee retires at 58 and eligible for EPS, he can continue contributing to EPF. We are to understand here one thing, that it is a retiral benefit and the accrual will provide additional benefit to employee. When it is beneficial to employee and who can contribute further, it can be continued till his retirement.

nanu1953The query can be explained as per below following the guidelines of EPFO:-
1. If the employee retired after reaching the age 58 and settled PF along with to receive EPS, THEN THE EMPLOYEE will be considered as Excluded employee. There will be no need for PF or EPS contribution.
2. If the employee will retire after 58 at any other age, then EPS will discontinue but the contribution to PF will continue along with EPS contribution to PF Account.
3. Without closing of PF Account it will not be possible to stop contribution to PF Account irrespective of age of the employee.
