EPFO or Employees' Provident Fund Organisation allows subscribers to assign a nominee online. EPFO is the nodal agency to monitor EPF (Employees' Provident Fund) contributions, which is a mandatory contribution from the salary of an individual.
The nomination details can be submitted through the retirement fund body's website, unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in. In the event of a subscriber's death, only the nominated members can withdraw the EPF savings. Subscribers can also nominate more than one person, and also fix the percentage for each nominee.
Here are the steps to file EPF account's nomination details online:
1. Log on to EPFO's website, unifiedportal-mem.epfindia.gov.in, and enter your UAN (Universal Account Number) and password to login.
2. Click on "manage" tab and then click on e-nomination option.
