New Delhi: E-nomination became essential for Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) account holders earlier this year, according to the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO). This means that EPFO account holders no longer need to provide physical verification when filing or revising their EPF nomination. Instead, users can make the necessary changes by logging onto their EPFO accounts.
EPFO had set a deadline of March 31 for EPF account holders to amend their e-nomination for their accounts. If you haven’t updated your EPF account’s submitted e-nomination yet, you can do so now by login onto your account. It’s worth noting that EPF account holders have the option of having multiple nominees for their accounts. They can also give each nominee a different share of the prize money.
So, if you haven’t yet filed your EPFO e-nomination, here’s a step-by-step tutorial.
