The interest rate on EPF is reviewed annually. EPF interest rate for FY 2021-22 is 8.50%. Once EPFO notifies the interest rate for a financial year and the year ends, interest rate is calculated for the month-wise closing balance and then for the entire year.

The year in which the new interest rates are announced stays valid for the next financial year i.e. from the year starting on 1st April of one year to the year ending on 31st March of the next year. Here are a few important facts to know about EPF Interest Rate:

  • The rate of interest i.e. 8.50% is valid and will be applicable only on EPF deposits made between the months of April 2021 and March 2022.
  • The interest, even though calculated on a monthly basis, is transferred to the Employees’ Provident Fund account only on a yearly basis on 31st March of the applicable financial year.
  • The transferred interest is summed up with the next month i.e. April’s balance and is then again used for calculation of the interest.
  • If the contribution is not made into an EPF account for thirty-six months continuously, the account becomes dormant or inoperative.
  • Interest is offered on inoperative accounts of employees who have not attained the retirement age.
  • Interest is not provided on the amount deposited in inoperative accounts of retired employees.
  • The interest earned on inoperative accounts is taxable as per the member’s slab rate.
  • For contributions made towards the Employees’ Pension Scheme by the employer, the employee shall not receive any interest. However, a pension is paid out of this amount after the age of 58.

EPF Interest Rate Calculation

Let’s suppose that an employee started his contributions from the month of November 2020.

Contribution Start MonthNovember 2020
Interest Rate (p.a)8.5%
Monthly Interest Rate8.50/12 = 0.7083%
Employee’s Contribution12% of Rs. 15,000 = Rs. 1,800
Employer’s ContributionRs. 1,800 (8.33% in Pension, 3.67% in EPF)
Employer’s Actual Contribution to EPF account3.67% of Rs. 15,000 = Rs. 550
Total Monthly Contribution in EPF accountRs. 1800 + Rs. 550 = Rs. 2,350

The balance calculation for the next month (December) will be done in a given manner:

  • Balance carried forward from November 2021= Rs. 2,350.
  • Interest earned for the month of December 2021 = Rs. 16.75
  • Balance at the end of December 2019 = Rs. 2,350 + Rs. 2,350 = Rs. 4,700

Note: Although interest has been earned in December 2020, it will be credited at the end of the financial year on 31st March 2021.EPF Contribution

The employer and employee make equal contributions to the EPF account as shown below.

  • 10% EPF share is valid for the organizations where there are 20 or less than 20 employees /organizations with losses incurred more than or equal to the net worth (at the end of financial year) /organizations declared sick by the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction
  • Total contribution made by the employer is distributed as 8.33% towards Employees’ Pension Scheme and 3.67% towards Employees’ Provident Fund.

  • Certain administration costs towards EDLI and EPF standing at the rate of 1.1% and 0.01% respectively also have to be incurred by the employer. This means that the employer has to contribute a total of 13.61% of the salary towards this scheme.
