Employees’ Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme is an insurance scheme that provides life insurance benefits to all employees who are members of the Employees Fund Scheme. Scheme EDLI is supported by a generous contribution from employers (@ 0.5% of monthly salary, up to a maximum of Rs. 15000). There are no premiums paid by employees for insurance under this scheme. Benefits paid under the EDLI Scheme are enhanced by Central Govt vide Gazette Notification No. GSR 299 (E) dated 28.04.2021.

The maximum benefit paid by eligible family members of the deceased employee under section 22 (3) of the EDLI Scheme was the previous Rs. 6 lakh now upgraded to Rs. 7 lakh.
The minimum guarantee benefit of Rs.2.50 paid under section 22 (3) of the EDLI Scheme introduced from 15.02.2018 for two years only, has been reinstated from 15.02.2020. It is hoped that this will be of some benefit to the families of members who may have passed away as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic.
Another benefit provision included in the EDLI Scheme is that w.e.f. 28.04.2021, a small profit of Rs. 2.50 lakh and a maximum benefit of Rs.7 lakh will be provided to eligible family members for those deceased members who continue their membership of the scheme and employment for a continuous period of more than 12 months, but may change their employer/establishment within two months prior to their death.
Previously this benefit was available only when the deceased employee, who is a member of the EDLI Scheme, was working on the same building for a continuous period of twelve months prior to his death. It is expected that this will be of some benefit to contract workers and other employees who change jobs on a regular basis.
Beneficiaries in respect of deceased members who were absent from work during the 12 months preceding the month of death will continue to be paid benefits under section 22 (1) of the EDLI Scheme.
