Common sense is not commonly available in India. Two IAS officers married to each dies, the other gets family pension for entire life time though the survivor is well to do. Now consider this, if the spouse dies and there after the other widow/widower also dies, the children don't get any family pension even if children are unemployed. There is age restrictions on childrens age up to which they will get family pension. When you can give family pension for entire life to the surviving IAS officer in addition to the pension which he/she is getting on her own retirement, why no family pension to the bereaved family who lost spouse earlier and was more hard pressed for finances.

I am 47 years old divorcee, having 60percent disability (orthopedically, locomotor), which is permanent in nature. I've divorced on 14-Apr-2019.And my mother expired on 8-Dec-2019,who had got family pension,as my father was a government servant of Odisha Secretariat. I am issue less and a dependent on mother's pension.Now, my question is whether I am eligible to get family pension or not. If yes, what's the process to get it.

I am a divorcee banker, going to retire next month. I took VRS due to ill health. I have a 31 years old unmarrid daughter. She is staying with me. If she remains unmarried till my death. Will she get family pension after my death? Please help.

What if in a family two such daughters are putting two separate claims for such pension benefits??, they were married in separate places, and can be having internal disputes too, specially in India its common, the elder one takes away the benefits.

Interesting! Why is it only for women then?

bcoz in every which way the women suffer, either with the violence, dominance, or infedility of the MEN....
