EPFO Update: File e-Nominations before end of March!

If you are a PF account holder, this information is for you! EPFO (Employees' Provident Fund Organization) has made e-nomination mandatory for its members and the Last date to do so is 31st March.

Without e-nomination, you won't be able to check the balance of your PF account. You will not be able to obtain many other benefits as a result of this.

In the event of the account holder's death, E-nomination allows the nominee/family members to withdraw funds from PF, Pension (EPS), and Insurance (EDLI).

The nominee can also file a claim online.

Advantages of EPFO e-nomination:

Employee Deposit Linked Insurance Scheme (EDLIS) participants also have access to insurance coverage (EDLI Insurance cover).

The nominee in the scheme receives a maximum insurance cover of Rs 7 lakh. If the member dies without any nomination, then there will be difficulties in processing the claim.

So let us tell you how you can fill out the nomination online.
