EPFO Subscribers must add a nominee by December 31.
EPF members have been requested to add a nominee by December 31 in order to continue receiving a slew of perks from the provident fund authority, EPFO. This is due to the fact that the new rules will take effect on January 1, 2022. It, if you haven't yet nominated the nominee to your EPF account, do so as soon as possible as the deadline approaches. What is the procedure for adding a nominee to an EPF account online? The methods to file an e-nomination against your EPF account are outlined below, but keep in mind that you may be asked to perform additional activities, such as providing a profile image, by the organisation. How to add an e-nomination to your online profile: Go to epfindia.gov.in to learn more. Select the For workers option from the Services menu. Then, under the 'Services' option, select the 'Member UAN/Online Service (OCS/OTCP)' link . Log in to your EPF account using your UAN and password in the fourth step. Your UAN number may readily be found on the monthly salary slip that your company sends you each month. A notice will appear when you have successfully signed into your account, stating that the e-nomination option is accessible with e-sign. Please register your nomination as soon as possible to ensure that your family members have easy access to social security benefits without having to physically visit EPFO offices. Now go to the 'Manage' page in your EPF online account and choose 'e-nomination' from the drop-down menu. A tab with the words 'Provide details' will appear on your screen; click 'Save'. Then, to update your family declaration, click Yes Now 'Click on family details' and fill in the required information. Remember that you can nominate more than one person in this section. If more than one nominee is assigned to an EPF account, go to the next step and click on 'Nomination information' to declare the amount of share assigned. After that, select the 'Save EPF ' option. Finally, click E-sign to generate an OTP, which will be delivered to the cellphone number associated with your EPF account number. Your e-nomination will be recorded with the EPFO organisation once the procedure has been properly e-signed. You also don't have to transmit any tangible paperwork to either your company or the EPFO.
