The government has changed the withdrawal rules of the Employees Pension Scheme, 1995. After this amendment, the members of the Employees Pension Scheme with less than 6 months of contributory service will also be able to withdraw money from the EPS account. This amendment will benefit more than 7 lakh members of the Employees Pension Scheme every year who leave the scheme after less than 6 months of contributory service.

According to a press release from the Press Information Bureau (PIB), the central government has also revised Table D. From now on, the withdrawal benefit will depend on how many months the member has served and how much EPS contribution has been made on the salary. This will help in rationalizing the withdrawal benefit of the members. More than 23 lakh EPS members will benefit from this amendment. The Ministry of Labor said that there are lakhs of such EPS 95 scheme members in the country who leave the scheme midway despite the rule of continuously contributing to the scheme for 10 years to get pension.

Six months of contribution was necessary to withdraw money.

As per the rules till now, the calculation of withdrawal benefit is based on the years completed in service and the salary on which contribution has been made for EPS. Only those members who contributed for 6 months or more could avail this withdrawal benefit. In such a situation, those members who left the scheme after contributing for less than six months did not get any withdrawal benefit. Due to this, the claim applications of many people were rejected.

7 lakh claims rejected

According to the Ministry of Labor, 7 lakh withdrawal claim applications were rejected in 2023-24 due to the rule of contribution for more than six months. These were such applications in which contribution was made in the EPS 95 scheme for less than 6 months. But after this decision of the government, all those EPS members who have not attained the age of 58 years by June 14, 2024 will also be entitled to the benefit of withdrawal of money.
