Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) members can now change their EPF and EPS nominees online. The Provident Fund regulator body recently made an announcement in this regard and said that an EPFO subscriber can change one’s nominee for EPF and EPS account. EPFO subscribers can now change their Provident Fund or PF nominee online by logging in at the EPFO website — epfindia.gov.in. New EPF nomination will override the previous nomination and the latest EPF/EPS nomination will be considered as final one.
EPFO made this announcement from its official twitter handle citing, “#EPF Members can file new nomination to change existing EPF/#EPS nomination.”
At present, an EPFO subscriber can file one’s EPF/EPS nomination online by logging in at the official EPFO website — epfindia.gov.in.
