What Is Employee’s Provident Fund

Employee’s Provident Fund is a retirement benefit scheme that’s available to all salaried employees. This fund is maintained and managed by Employees provident organisation of India(EPFO) and any other company with over 20 employee is required by law to register with EPFO .

How It Works

It’s a saving platform that gives employees a safe option to save fraction of monthly salary that can be used as living source after retirement.

When any employee start working for any organisation , the employee and employer both contribute 12% of employee’s salary(**now 10% as yesterday announcement for both side) into you PF account. These funds are pooled together from many employees and then invested by a legal trust. This generates an interest(which is decided by govt. of India and the board of trustee).
