When you join the permanent employ of Eskom, its subsidiaries or any participating employer in the EPPF and are younger than 65 years, the conditions of service state that you qualify for membership of the EPPF as an in-service member.

In-service members make monthly contributions to the EPPF and the employer makes contributions on your behalf. These contributions are invested towards your pension to provide you with a withdrawal or pension benefit, as well as a death benefit for your beneficiaries in the event of your passing. ​
