Online PF Registration – An Overview

Eligibility for EPF Registration for Indian employers

To be eligible for PF Registration, an organization has to fulfill the following criteria:

A factory that has 20 or more people.
An establishment that employs more than 20 persons. Here, the Central Government defines the class of such firms.
An establishment that has less than 20 workers and has been notified of compulsory registration for not less than 2 months.
The employer and the employees of an establishment mutually agree to apply for PF to the Central PF Commissioner. A notice has to be sent to the Official Gazette from the date of the agreement.
An establishment can also opt for voluntary registration if the employee count is less than 20. Every employee is eligible for PF right from the beginning of his employment. The responsibility of PF contribution and deduction is of the employer’s.

Benefits of PF Registration Online

Besides the contribution of the employee to EPF, the employer adds an equal amount which is inclusive of Employee Pension Scheme (EPS). Therefore, EPF saves you a robust pension.
In case of instances like illness, demise or retirement, Provident Fund helps the dependents of the employee by covering the financial risks they face in such situations.
The PF account can be transferred while switching employments. It can be carried forward instead of being closed down. This uniformity ensures that the rate of return is compounded over the years.

Emergencies are bound to happen at any point of time in life. EPF amount can be of great help during mishaps, illnesses, weddings and educational expenses.

Any person who has PF account is eligible for this insurance scheme that requires only 0.5 % of the salary deduction as premium.

The PF account can be extremely helpful for long-term goals like buying a property or setting up a fund for children.
