Now this cover is also available to the aggrieved family of employees who have worked in more than one establishment within 12 months immediately before death. Payment is lump sum.

How to calculate claim amount?


In the EDLI scheme, the claim is calculated on the basis of the last 12 months basic salary + DA received by the employee. Under the latest amendment, the claim for this insurance cover will now be 35 times the last basic salary + DA, which was 30 times earlier. Also, there will now be a maximum bonus of Rs 1.75 lakh, which was earlier a maximum of Rs 1.50 lakh. This bonus is considered to be 50 per cent of the average PF balance during the last 12 months. For example, if the last 12 months basic salary + DA is Rs 15000, then the insurance claim (35 x 15,000) + Rs 1,75,000 = Rs 7 lakh. This is the maximum claim.
