Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), has always been emphasizing on the social security of women. Taking another step in this direction, EPFO has made the process of e-nomination mandatory for all the users, so that in case of a salaried person not alive in the world, his wife and family doesn't face any problem in withdrawing his PF money. 

E-nomination in EPF/EPS account is very important for the financial security of the account holder's family. It helps the wife and family to easily take benefits of PF, pension and insurance in case of death of EPFO member. It also allows the nominee to submit the claim online. At the same time, in case of death of the account holder due to non-filing of nomination in EPFO, the family may have to face problem in withdrawing the PF money.

It is seen that most of the people make their spouse a nominee in their EPFO account, but apart from the spouse, you can also make a son, daughter or parent as a nominee. If you want to make your child a nominee and he is a minor, then in this case you will have to provide the name and address of the guardian of the child. Along with this, the signature of the nominee will also be required.
