EPF Pension Commutation Rules & Latest Updates

The employees who are contributing to employee provident fund scheme will automatically become members of employee pension scheme 1995. Under employee pension scheme 1995 when an employee completes the age of 58 years and when he or she contributes at least 10 years for EPF scheme will become eligible for monthly pension.

What is Pension Commutation Amount

While claiming monthly pension of the pensioners, they can get 1/3rd part of their monthly pension amount as a lump sum for 15 years. This amount is tax-free. After 15 years employees will get their pension as usual.

This facility was stopped in 2009, but recently it was again resumed on August 2019.


For example, if an employee monthly pension is 9000 Rs after retirement then 1/3rd of 9000 Rs i.e 3000 Rs will deduct from the employee monthly pension amount.

Now employee will get 6000 Rs as monthly pension for 15 yrs if he/she claims for pension commutation

Here the commutation amount will be calculated in the following manner:

  • Monthly deduction amount = 3000 Rs
  • For 1 year it is 3000 x 12 months = 36000 Rs
  • For 15 years it is 36000 x 15 = 5,40,000 Rs
  • So now the pensioner will get 5,40,000 Rs as commutation amount
