The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has previously made it necessary to file nominations for respective EPF accounts. Additionally, EPFO has made the complete process easier by allowing EPF account holders to do e-nomination without pushing them to the office for physical nominations. Account holders can simply sign in on the EPFO portal with valid credentials and update nomination changes. [हिंदी में पढ़ें]

Each EPF account holder can nominate one or more persons to their accounts and can decide different percentage amounts for each nominee. In case the member has no family, one person can be nominated and such nomination becomes invalid once the member acquires a family. EPFO had declared March 31 as the last date for e-nomination but somehow, if you have failed, you can file the nomination online now.
