The EPFO glitch has been fixed! In the last few weeks, EPFO users have been facing issues while filing their nominees for the EPF account. Users were faced with errors while submitting their nominee details on the EPFO website. This was a concern for many since the deadline to file their nominees was supposed to end on December 31, 2021.
While The Employees Provident Fund Organization has not extended the deadline, the EPFO has fixed the glitch. Several users took to the Google Play Store listing for UMANG app and the MeitY has responded. The glitch has been fixed and EPFO users can now use the UMANG app to file their new nominees.
EPFO glitch fixed: Here's how to fix
“Dear User, We regret for the inconvenience caused to you. We have fixed the issues in our latest version of UMANG Android app (2.0.28). We request you to please update/re-install the UMANG app,” said MeitY.
MeitY does not specify whether the issue has been fixed for the website. However, those who are in urgent need to file their nominees can take care of the task from the UMANG app.
Note the the EPFO has set the deadline to file nominees for your EPF account by December 31. The UMANG app is only available on Android devices and those using an iPhone may have to rely on the EPFO website.
“It is critical for subscribers to register nominations to care for their spouse, children, and parent, to safeguard them through online PF, pension and insurance,” says EPFO. Filing nominees comes in handy when the account holder does not exist and all the money is transferred to the nominees mention on the EPF portal. Those failing to file their EPF nominees will not be eligible for all the benefits for the next year.
