EPF Pension Withdrawal Calculation – Table D

In this post, I will explain to you the epf pension withdrawal calculation. Every employee needs to know why in some case after filling the form 10c for pension withdrawal, they are not able to withdraw their full pf pension amount. Also, the actual reason for pension deduction is hidden under this calculation made by the EPFO.

We will see the actual cause for the pension deduction and other factors included in it. Let’s get started.

Employer Contribution towards Employee’s PF and Pension

  • The employer makes a contribution of 12%, out of which 8.33% goes to the employee’s pension balance and 3.67% to the employee’s PF balance.
  • The employer contribution is made on monthly basics and can be viewed on the employee’s passbook. So the employer doesn’t deduct your pension according to him/her during the withdrawal.

EPO Rules for Pension Deduction with Service counted

  • The Employee Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) has made certain rules regarding the deduction of employees pension withdrawal amount.
  1. The minimum eligibility to withdraw pf pension amount is equal to or more than 6 months of service and below 10 years of total service.
  2. If the total service of an employee is less than 6 months, then EPFO considers it as a 0 service count for withdrawing pf pension. So less than 6 months of pension amount is not withdrawable.
  3. Similarly, If the total service of an employee is more than 6 months, then EPFO considers it as a 1-year service count for withdrawing pf pension. So more than 6 months of pension amount is withdrawable.
Let’s see with an example of an Employee ABC & Employee XYZ after leaving the organization.

Employees Name

Employee ABC

Employee XYZ

Total Service

1 year 5 months

2 year 7 months

Employer Pension Contribution

1 year 5 months

2 year 7 months

Pension Amount in Passbook up to

1 year 5 months

2 year 7 months

Pension Withdrawal

Eligible

Eligible

EPFO Rule of service count for withdrawing the pension amount   

( >=6 months is 1 year ) & (<6 months is 0 year )

The only 1-year pension amount is withdrawable (because 5 months < 6 months of minimum service)

The 3-year pension amount is withdrawable (because 7 months > 6 months of minimum service)

Withdrawal Pension

1 year + 0 (5 months)

= 1 year

2 year + 1 year

 (7 months) = 3 year

EPF Pension Withdrawal Calculation –  Table D

After referring to the previous example regarding the service counted by the EPFO in addition to pension withdrawal.  We will now see the pension calculation as per the service counted by the EPFO for withdrawing the pension balance.

Table D is the EPFO pension calculation table. With the help of this table, we will get an idea of how much pension we will receive at the time of the pension withdrawal.

Let me show you the example to understand better pension calculation by referring to Table D.

Employee ABC

Employee XYZ

Basic Pay + DA = Rs. 13,000

Basic Pay + DA = Rs. 13,000

Actual Service – 2 year 5 month

Actual Service – 2 year 7 month

According to EPFO Rule with respect to service

Service Count – 2 year

Service Count – 3 year

Pension Calculation Formula

Pension = [ (Basic + DA) x (% of proportion of wages) ]

Pension = 13,000 x 1.99 = Rs. 25,870

Pension = 13,000 x 2.98 = Rs. 38,740


Note
: Refer to Table D (i.e. for  % of the proportion of wages).

So, from the above example, we got Employee ABC’s withdrawable pension amount of 2 years with some deduction and Employee XYZ’s withdrawal pension amount of 3 years without deduction.

Conclusion

If your planning to withdraw your full pension balance by filling the form 10c. Make sure you check your total service period. If your service period falls below 6 months. That service period will be count as 0 by the EPFO and you will no be able to withdraw that pension balance

If your service period is equal to 6 months or more than that, then your service is counted as 1 year by the EPFO. In this case, you can withdraw a pension balance of  1 year.  So choose wisely and make a wise decision before claiming for pension amount.
