EPFO: Account holder can make more than one nominee, do it like this sitting at home
New Delhi: EPFO has made e-nomination mandatory for account holders. E-nomination is very helpful in getting the benefit of PF to the PF account holder and his family members. In case of death of a PF holder, settlement of pension insurance and provident fund case and online claim is possible only if e-nomination is already done.
Explain that PF account holders can only make their family members as nominees. However, if a person does not have a family with him, then he can declare any other person as his nominee. It is worth noting that if a person outside the family was made a nominee and later the family comes to know, then the family will get its benefit. Also, the nomination of non-family members will be cancelled. On the other hand, if the PF account holder leaves the world without mentioning the nominee, then one has to go to the civil court to get the successor certificate.
Explain that PF account holders can make more than one nominee. If a person declares 2 nominees, then he will have to give complete information regarding how much money should be given to which person
EPFO has implemented e-nomination, if a person does not get his e-nomination done, then he will not be able to see the balance of his passbook. It is necessary to have an active UAN for e-nomination. Also mobile number should also be linked with Aadhar card.
