However, I can provide you with some general information about the current EOBI pension scheme (as of December 2023), which may give you a head start on understanding the potential changes for 2024: 



EOBI Pension Eligibility:

Any Pakistani employee aged 55 years or above who has contributed to the EOBI scheme for at least 15 years is eligible for a pension.



Self-employed individuals can also opt into the scheme and become eligible for a pension upon reaching the age of 55 and fulfilling the contribution requirement. 



EOBI Pension Amount:

The minimum pension under the current scheme is Rs. 8,500 per month.

The maximum pension amount is calculated based on a formula that considers the employee's salary, contribution period, and the average wage of industrial workers. 



EOBI Contribution:

Both employees and employers contribute to the EOBI scheme, with the employee contributing 1% of their monthly salary and the employer contributing 5%. Self-employed individuals contribute a combined 5% of their declared income.



 Steps for EOBI Pension Claim Process:

The specific steps for claiming your EOBI pension can vary depending on the type of pension you're applying for (Old Age, Invalidity, Survivor, etc.) and your individual circumstances. However, here's a general overview of the key steps involved:
