The Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) launched an e-nomination facility for EPF account holders. In a circular dated 12 September, the fund manager said that the facility can be availed by members who have linked their Aadhaar and verified it on its "member sewa portal."
You will need to login into your account on the Sewa portal and check if your UAN (Universal Account Number) is activated on avail the facility. The service also requires you to have your photograph available on the portal.
Members can only nominate his/her family members as per EPFO rules. However, if the member does not have a family, they can nominate only one person. This nomination will become invalid after the member acquires a family.
For those who haven't nominated anyone, a message will pop-up on the screen to file their e-nomination, when they login into the portal.
The list of members that have not filed nominations is also displayed to the employers at their log in page.
