## What Is an EPF Calculator?

The Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) is a savings scheme run by the Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) for retirement. This fund helps people accumulate some funds for retirement. Using an EPF calculator, you can calculate how much money you will have in your Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) account when you retire.

The Angel One EPF calculator can assist you in calculating your EPF money effortlessly for free. You can use this calculator at any time from anywhere in the world.

## What is the EPF Calculator Formula?

Every month the employees contribute 12% of their basic salary and Dearness Allowance (DA) to the EPF account, while the employer also contributes 12% of the employee’s basic salary (along with DA) towards the retirement savings scheme, of which, 8.33% goes to the Employee Pension Scheme (EPS) and the remaining 3.67% to the EPF.

Let us consider an example to understand this better. Assume your basic salary is Rs. 25,000 and no dearness allowance, your contribution towards EPF will be 12% of Rs. 25,000, i.e., Rs. 3,000.

Now your employer provides 8.33% of Rs. 25,000, i.e., Rs. 2,082.50 towards EPS and 3.67% of Rs. 25,000, i.e., Rs. 917.5 towards EPF.

On the EPF account balance, the EPFO offers interest on the EPF account balance. This interest rate is annually set by the EPFO. However, the interest is calculated at the end of each month.

In our instance, the EPF contribution in the first month is Rs. 3,000 + Rs. 917.5 = Rs. 3,917.5. The same amount will be contributed in the second month as well. The interest is calculated on the amount available in the account. If the interest rate is 8% per annum, the monthly interest rate is 8/12 = 0.66%. At the end of the second month, the account balance is Rs. 7,835 and the interest will be 0.66% of Rs. 7,835 = Rs. 51.71. As the amount in the account keeps increasing, the interest amount keeps rising too. The interest amount accumulated is deposited in the EPF account at the end of the year.

However, instead of calculating your EPFs manually, you can use the Angel One EPF calculator and get the results in a few seconds.
