EPF Calculator: How Much Money Will Be In Your Provident Fund Account After 25 Years? Do complete calculation of amount and interest like this

EPF Calculation: Provident Fund Account is a good savings option. EPFO manages the accounts of crores of account holders. In these accounts, 24 per cent of the basic and dearness allowance of both the employee and the employer is deposited. Every year the government fixes interest on the amount deposited in this EPF account. Do you know how EPF calculation is done? Generally, account holders assume that interest is earned on the entire money deposited in the Provident Fund. But, it doesn’t happen. No interest is calculated on the amount that goes to the pension fund in the PF account.

You will get salary slip every month. You can see your basic salary and DA in your salary slip. Every employee’s basic salary plus 12% of DA goes to the EPF account. The company also contributes 12 percent of the basic salary + DA. Interest is earned on the money collected by combining both the funds. The interest is reviewed every year, but the advantage of this is that having compounding interest also gives double benefit in interest.

How to calculate interest on PF

Interest is calculated on the basis of monthly running balance deposited in the PF account every month. But, it is deposited at the end of the year. According to the rules of EPFO, if any amount is withdrawn in a year from the balance amount on the last date of the current financial year, then it is deducted 12 months interest. EPFO always takes the opening and closing balance of the account. To calculate this, the monthly running balance is added and multiplied by the rate of interest / 1200.

Withdrawal also causes damage

If any amount is withdrawn during the current financial year, then the amount of interest (PF interest calculation) is taken from the beginning of the year to the month immediately preceding the withdrawal. The year’s closing balance (PF Balance) will be its opening balance + contribution-withdrawal (if any) + interest.

Think of it as

Basic Salary + Dearness Allowance (DA) = ₹30,000

Employee Contribution EPF = 12% of ₹30,000 = ₹3,600

Employer Contribution EPS (subject to limit of 1,250) = ₹1,250

Employer Contribution EPF = (₹3,600-₹1,250) = ₹2,350

Total Monthly EPF Contribution = ₹3,600 + ₹2350 = ₹5,950

Contribution in PF till 1st April 2020

Total EPF contribution in April = ₹ 5,950

Interest on EPF in April = Nil (No interest in first month)

EPF account balance at the end of April = ₹ 5,950

EPF contribution in May = ₹ 5,950

EPF account balance at the end of May = ₹ 11,900

Monthly interest calculation = 8.50% / 12 = 0.007083% Interest calculation

On EPF for May = ₹ 11,900 * 0.007083% = ₹ 84.29

This formula is applied

The interest rate for any financial year is notified by the government. At the end of the current financial year, the calculation of interest (EPF interest) is done. By adding the balance amount on the last date of every month of the year, dividing that amount by dividing the fixed interest rate by 1200, the interest amount is extracted.
