This scheme is for the retired employees of the organized sector, who have retired at the age of 58 years. Both the employer or the company and the employee contribute 12 percent of the employee’s salary equally to the EPF fund. The entire part of the employee’s contribution goes to EPF. At the same time, 8.33 percent of the contribution made by the employer goes to the Employees’ Pension Scheme (EPS) and 3.67 percent to the EPF every month.

As per paragraph 11 of the EPS Scheme, the pensionable salary will be the average monthly salary received during the first 12 months from the date of exit of the employee from the employee’s membership.
