Benefits of EPFO e-Nomination
The e-nomination option provides authority to the nominee or dependents (spouse, children, and parents) of the EPF account holder to withdraw funds accumulated in EPF, EPS, or ELDIS in the event of the account holder’s demise. E-nomination speeds up online claim settlement by nominees in such situation.
