    In my case, the ER amount is less than EE. I thought the ER(Employer) amount should be equal to EE(Employee).

    • NitiN Kumar Jain

      Should ideally be equal unless employees voluntarily instructs his employer to deduct more for his PF …

      • Narendra Kumar S.S

        Some part of (I think 3.8%) ER goes to EPS or Employee Pension Scheme.
        So, ER will be less than EE. And you wont see the amount in EPS. That you will get either as pension when you retire or you can claim it when you withdraw your PF.

        • NitiN Kumar Jain

          Thanku for the clarification Narendra

  • Sunil

    Does the total pf equal to EE and ER

    • NitiN Kumar Jain

  • NitiN Kumar Jain

    Hi Nitin, your blog has really been helpful. Kindly help me with regards to my pf balance.
    I worked in deloitte for nine months in 2008.

Kindly help me with what exact amount can i withdraw. Please.

    • NitiN Kumar Jain

      Your total amount in the PF is the sum of the two you mentioned and you withdraw the full amount if you have left the organisation with which you had the PF account …
