There is an important news for the users of Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO). Those who have not yet done e-nomination in their EPF account, they will have to complete this work by December 31. Otherwise they will be deprived of many facilities.
Under the Employees Deposit Link Insurance Scheme, 1976 (EDLI), a benefit of Rs 7 lakh is given as free insurance for the entire EPF account. If the member dies without any nomination, it becomes difficult to process the claim.
EPFO has now made it mandatory for all PF account holders to add a nominee. This effort is to provide security to the dependents of the PF account holders. If something happens to the PF account holders, keeping dependents as a nominee gives them protection like insurance and pension.
Here’s how you can file e-nomination on EPFO
STEP1: First you have to visit the official website of EPFO https://www.epfindia.gov.in/.
