EPF Calculator

The EPF (Employees' Provident Fund) is a savings scheme designed for employees in the organized sector. It requires both employees and employers to make monthly contributions, usually based on a percentage of the “employee's basic salary” and “dearness allowance”. The primary objective is to create financial safety for employees after retirement, and it also provides benefits in case of emergency.

The EPF calculator helps users estimate their contributions based on their salary and tenure. It shows how the EPF savings grow, including interest and potential withdrawals. This tool is primarily useful for planning finances, giving a clear picture of retirement savings. It helps people make smart choices about how much to contribute and when to withdraw from their EPF.

EPF Calculation Formula

EPF calculation is the key to financial planning when you are working in an organized sector. The calculation uses your basic salary and dearness allowance to determine monthly contributions from you and your employer.

The Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) is calculated using the following formula:

EPF Contribution (Employee) = (Basic Salary+Dearness Allowance)×EPF Employee Rate

EPF Contribution (Employer) = (Basic Salary+Dearness Allowance)×EPF Employer Rate

Total EPF Contribution = EPF Contribution (Employee)+EPF Contribution (Employer)


Let's consider an employee in India with a basic salary of ₹25,000 and a dearness allowance of ₹5,000. Assuming both the EPF employee and employer rates are 12%:

EPF Contribution (Employee)=(₹25,000+₹5,000)×0.12=₹3,600

EPF Contribution (Employer)=(₹25,000+₹5,000)×0.12=₹3,600

Total EPF Contribution=₹3,600+₹3,600=₹7,200

In this example, considering both basic salary and dearness allowance, the employee contributes ₹3,600, and the employer contributes an additional ₹3,600, resulting in a total EPF contribution of ₹7,200 per month. Actual rates and components may vary based on specific organizational policies and government regulations.
