Introduction

Nomination is the process of naming an individual(s) as a nominee/administrator (Wasi) to receive/administer his/her EPF savings upon the member's death. 

Why Do You Need To Make A Nomination?

You are encouraged to make nomination to facilitate and expedite the withdrawal of your EPF savings by the nominated person(s) in the event of death. In the event that you did not make any nomination for your EPF savings, your next-of-kin may encounter difficulties when staking their claim on your EPF savings. 

Are You Eligible To Make A Nomination?

You are eligible to nominate any individual as a nominee if:
        1. You are 18 years old or above
        2. You are a Malaysian citizen
            OR
            A non-Malaysian citizen who 
                  • Has become an EPF member before 1 August 1998;
                  • Has obtained a Permanent Resident (PR) status.
 

Who Can Be Named As A Nominee? 

You can nominate any ‘natural person' as a nominee/administrator.A ‘natural person' refers to individuals and not organisations, associations, societies, welfare bodies or others.

You can nominate an administrator / executor under 18 years old by taking into account that the person can only carry out his/her responsibility upon reaching age 18. However, for Muslim members, the nomination will be void if the nominee is below 18 years old upon the submission of the Death Withdrawal application by the nominee or your next-of-kin.
 
You are advised to nominate your next-of-kin, such as your spouse, children and parents, to receive/administer your savings. The nomination can still be accepted if you name individuals other than your next-of-kin, however, complications may arise in the future should your next-of-kin proceed to stake their claim on your EPF savings. 
 
 
Nominee As An Administrator / Executor Or Beneficiary
 

Muslim Members

  • When a Muslim EPF member dies, the person(s) nominated shall receive the savings of the deceased member as administrator (Wasi) who will be responsible to distribute the savings in accordance with the Faraid Law.
  • If the nominee dies, the next-of-kin of the member are eligible to apply for withdrawal. 
 

Non-Muslim Members

  • The nominee is the actual rightful beneficiary who will receive the savings of the deceased member.
  • For non-Muslim members, in the event of a deceased nominee, the following applies: 
   * If the nominee's death precedes that of the member, the eligible applicant is the next-of-kin of the deceased                member.

   * If the member's death precedes that of the nominee, the eligible applicant is the nominee's next-of-kin. This is            because the nominee is the actual rightful beneficiary of the deceased member's savings.
