The good news: The same person can now get the benefit of two pensions, a widowed daughter or even a divorcing daughter can get the benefit

The good news: The same person can now get the benefit of two pensions, a widowed daughter or even a divorcing daughter can get the benefit



Now one person from the family can avail of two pensions from the Central Government.  If two people from a family are central employees, this rule is possible.  If both the mother and father of a child are government employees then the benefit of two pensions can be availed.  Full details about it are given by the Pension and Pensioners Welfare Department.






However the rules of the two pension rules have certain conditions.  After completion of which two pensions can be availed.


The Department of Pensions says that if both husband and wife are government employees and one of them dies during the job or after retirement, the benefit of family pension will go to one of the two who is alive.  If the husband dies, the wife and if the wife dies, the husband will get the benefit of family pension.  If both die, the surviving child will be able to benefit.  Elderly pensioners are being sensitized through this series.



One question is whether a widowed or divorced daughter also gets the benefit of family pension.  When her husband dies and the divorce takes place after the death of her parents, the Pension Department replied that the benefit of family pension will be given to a widowed or divorced daughter only when the divorce case of a government employee's daughter is pending in a competent court.  This case should continue in the life of the employee or pensioner.  But even if the divorce is granted after their death, this rule applies.  In such a case the family pension will be linked to the day of the divorce.
