EPFO has recently launched facility of E-nomination on Unified Member Portal. EPFO subscriber can give nomination or change existing nomination by using this facility. If you are EPF subscriber you should use this facility to check and change your EPF account nomination. In this post, we will take a look at the step by step process of using E-nomination facility.
The earlier process of changing EPF nomination offline was lengthy and cumbersome. In an old offline process, EPF subscriber was submitting FORM 2 for the nomination. This form was submitted to an employer for authorization. An employer was sending this Form to EPF office for nomination change. The entire process was manual and time-consuming.
A new E-nomination facility is faster and it also removes intervention of employer for a change in nomination.
