What are the rights of nominee(other than legal heirs) who receives gpf amount of deceased
I believe that it should be same as EPF’s.
“Upon the death of an EPF member, the Employee Provident Fund amount is paid to the nominee that was nominated at the time of opening of the account. If there was no nominee assigned then the EPF amount is paid to the immediate members of the family.”
In case the nominee is not a legal heir and if the deceased employee has not made a WILL mentioning who should get his PF amount and what share of it, then the nominee may not get the deceased person’s PF amount. He/she can just be a care-taker. The legal heir can claim to have the right to get the deceased’s PF balance.
