PF New Rule: EPF Benefits to Stop from Next Month if you do not Complete this By December-end
Employees Provident Fund Update: All account holders of the Employees Provident Fund will have to make changes in their accounts by December 31, as a new rule will be implemented from next month. The Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has in a notification said that employees will need to add a nominee to their EPF accounts by December 31 this year. If this is not done, the employees will lose out on several benefits that the top retirement body, backed by the central government, offers. To avoid this, EPF account holders must add a nominee to their accounts, which can be done online.
Almost all salaried individuals in India have an account at the Employees Provident Fund Organisation, which serves as a source of income following their retirement. Every month, a certain amount of money is deducted from the employee’s salary, which is credited to him or her after retirement. The same amount of money is also provided by the employee’s company every month. However, if an employee does not update the nominee details by December 31, he or she will not receive any benefits including pension and insurance money from January 2022.
It is critical for subscribers to register nominations to care for their spouse, children, and parents and to safeguard them through online PF, pension, and insurance," said EPFO in a statement. Filing of nomination is aimed at ensuring benefits for the dependents of the PF account holder in event of a mishap with him or her. The nominee will be able to receive benefits from the insurance and pension schemes if such an incident happens to an account holder.
