Employee Provident fund: EPF investment is completely tax free under EEE. There is no tax on investment, interest and withdrawal.



 

Employee Provident Fund: If you do not invest separately for retirement, then EPF will come in handy for you. Age 25, Basic 20,000 and 24% (12% Employee + 12% Employer) EPF is deducted, then Rs 4800 will be invested every month. According to experts, the longer you start investing in EPF, the less corpus you will collect. If you keep investing continuously for 25 years, then there will be a corpus of 2.79 crores for retirement.

Salary will increase by 7 percent every year
If we assume salary hike at the rate of 7% then investment started at the age of 25 will make you a millionaire. At every age, the investment made on your behalf may be getting less and less. But, the corpus for retirement will get reduced. There is a close relationship between your age and EPF corpus.

Transfer your account on change of job

  • If you change jobs, do not forget to transfer the EPF account to the new company’s account.
    You can transfer EPF account very easily through UAN.
  • In case of non-transfer, interest will be available on the new account, but the interest on the old account will stop after 3 years.
  • Get tax free money on retirement
  • EPF investment is completely tax free under EEE. There is no tax on investment, interest and withdrawal. But, keep in mind that this amount is tax free only if you have worked for 5 consecutive years and have not done any withdrawal.
