EPFO Nominee: The Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), which is the top retirement body of the government, has been for quite a while urging its subscribers to file nomination and add a nominee to their EPF accounts. The account holder may lose access to several PF benefits if e-nomination is not filed, the EPFO has said. Members can file for a nomination on the EPFO’s website easily to get added benefits of the retirement body even if there is no deadline.
“If an EPF member wants to change existing EPF/EPS nomination then he/she can file new nomination. New EPF/EPS nomination will override previous nomination,” the EPFO said in a tweet dated May 22.

However, the EPFO has brought in a new rule whereby you have to add a profile picture in your EPF account before you apply for a new nomination or change an existing nomination. If you do not have a profile picture picture and still try to add a nominee, you will get a message saying “Unable to proceed. Please upload your profile photograph. ( Menu : View -> Profile).” You will be able to carry on with your work after you upload your picture.
How to Add EPF Nomination Digitally
The EPFO has in a recent tweet elaborated about the process on how to file EPF nomination online. “Follow these easy steps to file EPF/EPS nomination digitally,” it said.
