In certain cases, family pension to be shared between eligible members


Normally, family pension is payable to one eligible member at a time. However, in certain specific cases, the family pension will be paid in equal shares. Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare has stated that the family pension will be paid in equal shares where the deceased government servant or pensioner is survived by

  1. More than one widow except in the case of Hindu widow or where polygamy or polyandry is not allowed.
  2. A widow and an eligible child from a divorced wife or void or voidable marriage.
  3. Children from two or more pre-deceased wives.
  4. Twin children.

In all of the cases, on the death of one recipient, his or her share of the family pension shall become payable to another member of the family who was sharing the family pension with him or her. The information was tweeted by the Department of Pension & Pensioners’ Welfare as a part of the series "75 important rules related to Family Pension" with a view to creating awareness among elderly pensioners.
