Plan Your Secure Future: Suvit EPF Calculator

What is EPF?

EPF, or the Employee Provident Fund, is like a savings plan for people who work in private companies. It's a way for employees to save money for when they retire. The organization in charge of managing this fund is called the Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO). If a company has 20 or more employees, it has to be part of the EPFO.

There are three parts to the EPF:

1. The EPF Scheme 1952

2. The Pension Scheme 1995

3. The Insurance Scheme 1976.

People who are part of the EPF scheme have to put aside 12% of their basic salary and dearness allowance every month. Their employer also has to put in the same amount.

The EPFO decides how much interest the EPF savings will earn. The interest rate is set at 8.15% p.a. for FY 2023-24.

When an employee retires, they get a lump sum of money. This includes their contributions, their employer's contributions, and the interest earned.

However, part of the employer's contribution (12%) doesn't go to the EPF account. Instead, 8.33% goes to the Employee Pension Scheme Account, and the remaining 3.67% goes to the employee EPF account.

What is an EPF calculator?

An EPF calculator is like a tool that helps you figure out how much money you'll have in your EPF savings when you retire. It shows the total amount, including what you and your employer put in, plus the interest it earns over time.

How does an EPF calculator work?

Let's look at an example to understand how the EPF calculator does its job.

Suppose an employee with a monthly salary and dearness allowance totalling Rs 12,000.

The employee puts in 12% of this amount into the EPF.

MonthEmployee ContributionEmployer ContributionTotal ContributionInterest EarnedTotal Amount
AprilRs 1,440Rs 440Rs 1,880-Rs 1,880
MayRs 1,440Rs 1,440Rs 2,880Rs 19.57Rs 2,899.57

JuneRs 1,440Rs 1,440Rs 2,880Rs 19.57Rs 5,799.14

This process continues for the following months in a similar way.
