Rights of family members of a pension recipient who died

Payment of a non-collected pension

If a recipient of a general disability pension dies without collecting the full pension due to him, the pension will be paid to his survivors (widow / widower or children who are entitled to a survivors’ pension from the National Insurance Institute). If the entitled person did not leave survivors, the pension will be paid to the person who proves that he provided the entitled person with essential goods or services in the last year of his life, and was not paid for them.

The amount paid will not exceed the amount of the pension for the six months before the death of the entitled person.
