Dear sir,
My younger brother was unmerried hence he made his nominee to our sister . My brother has expired accodingly we h
ave applied PF in the name of my sister. But PF commisioner has rejected our claim application and ask to enclose succession certifiacte along with claim application.
My queries is
Whether a succession is required when nominee is there?
It seems that the PF office have not update the nominee name in their register and to hide their problem they ask to have succession. Is it reasonable ,
Please help any one how to overcome this situation.
I am eagerly waiting for your valuable suggestion

Hi Shankar,
The PF office would be correct to ask for a succession certificate here, because such a certificate in line with the India succession acts ensures that the beneficiary here has full rights to the PF amount claimed.
Just providing nominee details would not be sufficient as there is no clarity on whether there are any more legal heirs to the amount who could challenge the payout in future. So, if the nominee details are supported with the succession certificate it becomes a lot easier.
