If you are employed, then it is clear that, as per the rules, a part of your salary is deducted from your PF (Provident Fund) account every month. Employees' Provident Fund Organization (EPFO) is a government entity responsible for managing the PF accounts of employed individuals. Every month, a certain amount is deducted from an employee's salary and deposited into their PF account, and the company also contributes the same amount. Later, the employee can withdraw this amount if needed or after leaving the job. It is also necessary to nominate someone in the account, ensuring that the entire amount goes to the nominee in the event of the account holder's absence. Also, if you want to change your nominee, you can do so at any time. The process is straightforward, so let's learn how.
