E-nomination facility by EPFO on Unified Member Portal

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.

    Hello I have my father’s name wrong in UAN an d online this facility is not available to be updated.
    I have already sent joint declaration form to my employer but there is no status update. I am scared if it would take more time than expected.

    As my father is currently E-Nominee can I change it to my sister ( who is married) or brother in law? and Will i be able to transfer 100% of my PF amount to them to get my money faster as changes in father details will take more time.

    Also will the claim will again get stuck due to still no change in Fathers name in UAN card.
    Is it possible to transfer the complete PF amount to the newly added nominee without hassel?
