Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) members should make sure to file their nomination to avail various benefits. EPF members can also make changes to their nominations online. An EPF member does not need to request this from their employer; instead, they can update their EPF nominations online through
the EPFO UAN portal.
Here are three three benefits of filing an e-nomination in one’s EPF account, according an EPFO tweet:
1. Online claim settlement upon the death of member
2. Online payment of PF, Pension and Insurance (upto Rs 7 lakh) to eligible nominees
3. Paperless and speedy claim settlement
In order to receive Provident Fund (PF), Pension (EPS), and Insurance (EDLI) benefits, nomination should be done in one’s EPF account.
