I would request information on

A defense pensioners widow will draw her husbands pension for 7 years from date of death or 67 years whichever is earlier
thereafter she will draw her family pension..
My understanding is that the full pension or double the family pension for 7 years from date of retirement & NOT date of death of the pensioner

Knowledgeable members may advise...Thanks

Dear friends. I have come across a case where in "Treasury" has refused to pay arrears of pension due to a pensioner before expirty, to wife, although, family pension to the wife, is being paid by the same Treasury. Treasury says that such arrears are paid as Per "Payment of Arrears of Pension(Nomination)Rules 1983". Since "Nomination" is not available, hence Treasury has refused payment of such arrears.
It is notesworthy that such payment, perhaps, are being made by Banks, as these are Computer generated. The Treasury is demanding Succession Certificate issued from Court. The learned members may kindly consider and advise a simpler solution.
