GOD PLANS   09 November 2020

Eligility for pf

Respected Sirs/Madam,

Mr. A died in a road accident on duty. When legal heir of Mr A approached the employer company for the PF benefits, the company informed the legal heir that Mr A was not eligible for PF contribution. So PF was not deducted and contributed. Hence, Mr. A's legal heir lost the benefits available under PF schemes.

Mr. A joined company as a driver in July, 2017. He died in Dec 2019 on duty. We dont have his December month salary details. His salary details when joining in July,2017 and Nov, 2020 are in excel file attached.


  1. Please advice, whether Mr A was eligible for PF contribution or not.
  2. If eligible, can legal heir can ask compensation from the employer for lost of his benefits under PF schemes?

We humbly request your kind guidance. Thank you very much.

If salary amount is above Rs 6500/- then it is optional for the company to deduct PF. it seems He hasn't opted of PF deduction.

But you can claim for accident from the company if you haven't already.

1. Yes the deceased employee is eligible for his PF facilities.

2. The legal heirs can demand the benefits from the employer.
