Go digital! Follow these simple steps to submit an EPF/EPS application online

Filing an e-nomination is compulsory for EPFO ​​members in order to benefit from social benefits for their families. An EPF member can offer various benefits to their family if they have filed an e-nomination. These benefits include provident fund (PF), pension (EPS) and insurance benefits (EDLI), online claims settlement upon death of a member, eligible applicants and many more.

In this digital world, making an e-nomination is a paperless procedure as members do not have to travel to their local EPF office and can instead submit nominations online from the comfort of their own home.

To submit an electronic application, the member must first activate their UAN account on the UAN Member Portal and ensure that their UAN, Member ID, Institution ID, Name, Date of Birth, father/spouse, relationship, date of joining, gender and marital status are all correct. The member must give a KYC detail for each applicant to retrieve the nomination details online, and the total share for all PF/EDLI applicants must equal 100%.

According to EPPO guidelines, members with a family may designate one or more of the family members as defined in paragraph 2 (f) of the EPF Programme, 1952. A member having no family members as as defined in said paragraph may nominate any other person, but the nomination shall become invalid if the member acquires a family.
