Dear All,
In case of death of an employee is it mandatory that the claim will be received only by his father if he is alive and even if his registered nominee is his mother (Employee here is not married) .
Thanks & Regards

Hello Mr. Mohla,
--> Actually If a nomination exists, payment is made to the nominee in accordance with Form 2(R) . (Nomination and Declaration Form).
-->If no nomination subsists, payment is to be made to every member of his family (as defined under para-2(g) of Employees' Provident Fund Scheme 1952) in equal share.
In your case if employee has given nominee name of mother than she will be the only one to get the share.
Thanks & Regards

Dear Ms. Sushma,
But the P.F. office has refused to accept the claim form stating that the documents and signature must be of the father not the mother.
If possible, pls. provide me with some extract or some case to provide to the P.F. office to expedite the process.
Thanks & Regards

Dear Mr. Mohla,
Do you have the hardcopy or acknowledgment of Pf Form-2 (nomination form). We are dealing with Mumbai regional P.F office and never received these kind of feedback in death claim cases.
Please confirm the reason for neglecting the registered Nominee in PF Form-2 from EPFO.
Thanks & Regards

Dear Ms. Sushma,
We have all the required document of the employee, in fact this is the first time i have faced such as strange reply from the P.F.official.He is adamant and simply refused to accept it.When i asked him for a reason he has no reason to back his point but simply have one answer that in every death case we follow the same process and will process only fathers claim.
Thanks & Regards

Dear Mohla,
If an employee dies with no family behind then according to E.P.F Act payment of pf made to the person nominated in form no.2. According to E.P.S Act 1995 in this case mother & father of the member both are entitle to receive pension amt. So You have to send claim in the name of mother & father of the member.
Same Situation I am Handling There.
thanks/regards,

Dear all,
In case of death of member, nominee as per Form 2, is initial for payment and if there is no any nomination declared inform no 2 than Mother and Father both are entitle for benefit, But in this case mother is already nominated as per form - 2 than no point to refuse the withdrawal by PF Department.

We also having confusion in the same matter. Our deceased employee given the nomination of his father but our regional office of EPF is telling based on the legal heir certificate only claim will be settled. Hence, we are in the confusion that do we need to send claim form for all legal heir or only for nominee... if only nominee EPF aand EPS are same proceedure?
Experts please clarify.
Thanks

Hi,
The purpose of getting nomination form filled up by the employee under the EPF Act & Rules made thereunder is to cater to the contingency of death and release of acumulated amount standing to his credit in the books of the EPFO.
In the instant case it is desirable to meet the RPFC/ARPFC, as the case may be explain the problem and seek guidance from him quoting the Act.

Dear Shri Mohla Ji,
The nomination executed by the deceased member is binding on the EPFO. Final payment of EPF account is to be made to the nominated mother only. Please ensure that you furnish a copy of the nomination accepted by the competent authority with the claim. If the EPFO official is still adamant, meet the superior officer and submit the claim. You may also insist for a written reply from the official who is refusing to accept your claim papers. Please do this and then revert.
Father is eligible for EPS, 1995 pension. He has to file separate application in form 10-D quoting the name of mother in the family member's details column. After the death of father, mother will receive pension.
Thanks and regards,
