PETALING JAYA: The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) nomination forms must now be submitted in person at EPF branches.
Forms submitted via mail as done in the past will no longer be accepted. The new ruling is effective from Aug 1.
EPF Public Relations general manager Nik Affendi Jaafar said the decision to stop accepting nomination forms via mail was made “to protect the interest of our 13 million members given the confidential and important nature of a member's nomination form which determines the beneficiary to the member's savings in the event of death.”
He said to ensure the confidentiality and authenticity of members' nominations, submissions by members' relatives, friends, or third parties would also be rejected.
“By getting members to submit their nomination form in person to any EPF branch, we are able to verify its authenticity thereby preventing any attempt at fraud by third parties.
"Furthermore, we are able to validate with the members on the spot about the particulars of the beneficiaries such as the spelling of their names, their MyKad numbers and also the percentage of savings apportioned if more than one beneficiary is nominated,” he said in a statement.
He called on members who had yet to nominate a beneficiary to do so as soon as possible.
EPF members who wish to make or update their nomination can do so by completing a KWSP 4 Form which can be obtained from the nearest EPF branch or downloaded from myEPF website (www.kwsp.gov.my).
For further information, members can call the EPF Contact Centre at 03 8922 6000 (7.30 am to 7.30 pm from Monday to Friday) or submit their query online via http://enquiry.kwsp.gov.my.
