What you need to file e-nomination online:

Before submitting the nominee/s details, you need to get your Universal Account Number (UAN), allotted by the EPFO. most importantly, make sure your UAN is linked with your Aadhaar. 

On the other hand, your Aadhaar should be linked with your mobile number to get OTPs.

However, filing of online pension claims is also dependent on the availability of e-nomination by the PF account holder. 

E-nomination also helps PF holder in actuarial valuation of the pension fund. In a circular issued by EPFO earlier this month, it had said upcoming claim settlement modules are being designed to check this feature as compliance.
