The Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has implemented a new rule to streamline the process of claiming EPF benefits after a member's death. The new rule aims to address difficulties faced by field offices in updating or rectifying Aadhaar details posthumously. The EPFO announced that claims can now be processed without Aadhaar seeding, facilitating easier access to EPF benefits for the families of deceased members. This relaxation is contingent upon approval from the Officer in Charge (OIC) via an e-office file, which must document the verification procedures undertaken.
