First of all, a member who wants to file e-nominations should log in to the official portal through UAN. As this process is available through the e-Sign facility, only Aadhaar-linked UAN account holders will be able to complete the EPFO e-nomination process.

Important Points to Know Before Starting the Process

  • If a member only wants to nominate a few people who are close to him then he or she should add those family members.
  • “In case the member is married and has a spouse and children, he/she should add them even if he does not wish to nominate them under PF. Spouses and children are defined as a family for the Pension Fund. So their names should be added to the family list.”
