Hi community,

Whom to consider as nominees as nomination form not filled by employee? How many family members allowed?

The benefits can be claimed by the nominee specified by the insured person. If no nominee was registered, then the family members or legal heirs can apply for the same.

EPF Form 5 IF is filled by nominees/family members/legal heirs to claim insurance benefits after the death of an active EPFO member. It is worth mentioning that the service can be availed only when the member has died while in service. If he is no longer working at an EPF registered firm (one with 20 employees or more), his survivors will not be eligible for EDLI benefits.

Guardianship certificate if the claim on behalf of a minor family member/minor nominee/minor legal heir and the claim is made by a person who is not the natural guardian.
