Employees working in organizations enrolled under the EPF scheme get the benefit of the EDLI scheme. This cover is also available to the aggrieved family of those employees who have left one company and worked in another within a year. The payment is a lump sum. In EDLI, the employee does not have to pay any amount. In case there is no nomination under the scheme, the coverage would be the spouse, unmarried daughters and minor son/sons of the deceased employee.
