EPFO RAISES MAXIMUM INSURANCE COVER TO RS 6 LAKH
Important decisions have been taken at the 208th Central Board of Trustees (CBT) meeting in Hyderabad, will benefit 40 million contributing members of the EPFO.
"In a major decision, the Central Board of Trustees under the chairmanship of BandaruDattatreya, Union Minister for Labour& Employment enhanced the insurance benefits under the Employees Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme 1976 admissible to dependants of EPF members from the present maximum of Rs 360,000 to Rs 600,000.This will benefit 4 crore EPF contributing members," said a press statement from the Union labour ministry. The release mentioned last year the government paid around Rs 180 crore to about 30,000 beneficiaries.
ONE YEAR CONTINUOUS SERVICE TO BE REMOVED
In another major relief, the trustees also decided to remove the condition of continuous employment of one year under current employer before being eligible for insurance benefits.
At present, only subscribers who have worked for one year continuously in the same organisationis eligible for the insurance cover. The nominee of the subscriber gets 20 times of average wage drawn during the past 12 months with 20% bonus on it. This means, on a wage ceiling of Rs 15,000 every month, the maximum amount assured works out to be Rs 3.6 lakh.
The trustees approved an incentive scheme for employers to seed Universal Account Number (UAN) with Know Your Customer (KYC) documents.
EMPLOYERS COULD CLAIM 10% REFUND OF ADMINISTRATIVE CHARGES
For instance, an employer can claim 10% refund of administrative charges paid during the quarter if the establishment provides Aadhar card details of 80% employees, bank details of all the employees and PAN card detail wherever applicable. This will become operational from October 1 for one year.
EPFO UNVEILS MOBILE APP, HANDSET-BASED SERVICES
The three new mobile-based services meant for EPF members are a Mobile Application, SMS-based Universal Account Number Activation and a Missed Call service.
Once the new mobile application from the EPFO website is downloaded, the members would be able to activate their UAN accounts from their mobile phones and can also access their accounts to view monthly credits and details available with EPFO.
Similarly, EPF pensioners have been given the option to access their pension disbursement details through this mobile app. Likewise, the employer can also view remittance details.
A new SMS-based UAN activation service was also launched, which enables members to activate their accounts by sending an SMS to 7738299899.
Once UAN is activated, the member becomes eligible for all services under the programme such as credit alerts, passbooks and the like. This new service is helpful mainly to those members who may not have easy access to computers or smartphones.
EPFO already has in place a Short Code SMS service, which helps members get their details along with contribution and PF balance through an SMS to 7738299899.
As an extension to this service, a missed call at 011 22901406 - at no cost to the member - will fetch the user all the required details. As this facility is available only to UAN members, the activation is expected to pick up.
