Provident fund is a necessary government- managed retirement saving plan that is similar to the social security program in the India. These retirement benefits are only available to salaried persons. The employer and the employee who contribute a certain percentage of the basic salary each month mostly create the PF. The Employees Provident Fund Organization manages the Pension fund. In some countries like India, the provident fund contribution is a mandatory requirement. The contribution is made on a monthly basis without fail.
When you start working, both you and your employer will have to contribute 12% of your basic salary to your employee provident fund account. Your employer will provide 3.67% out of the 12% while the employee commits the whole 12%. The remaining 8.33% of the employers’ contribution is then disbursed to your Employee Pension Scheme.
It is imperative for employees to regularly update their EPF account in case they change jobs so that both you and your new employer can start contributing to your retirement scheme. A trust usually invests all the provident funds pooled together from different employees. An employee is allowed to withdraw all his or her Provident Fund from their account. To check if you have an Employee Provident fund account visit the EPFO official website and access all their services online.
