E nomination -EPFO (Employees Provided Fund Organisation) urged the PF account holder to link the nominee with the PF account so as to avoid difficulty in PF claim by the PF nominee after the death of the PF holder. EPFO has started e-nomination filing service for the PF account holder which helps in claiming the amount contributed to the PF account after the accidental death of the PF account holder.
What is e-nomination and why is it necessary?
E Nomination is basically a process of filling the Nominee details through internet on your UAN portal without visiting the EPFO office. In this process the account holder can add his/her family member as a nominee in the EPF UAN portal so that the nominee can claim or withdraw the amount after the death of the account holder.
Adding is very necessary because if the PF member does not add the nominee then after the death of the PF account holder there will be a legal problem if the PF account holder family needs to take the amount from the PF account.
Rules for E-nomination in EPFO ?
- The UAN number of the PF account holder should be active.
- The mobile number linked to the PF account should also be active.
- Your mobile number should also be linked and verified with your Aadhaar Number.
