    Default Family Pension - Can this be passed on death of Family pensioner to widow daughter..

    A woman is drawing family pension.
    Her daughter is also a widow and has no other source of income.

    On death of the woman family pensioner, will this family pension get passed on to the woman's daughter who is also a widow with no other source of income.

    Please confirm.

    No sir!
    A Family Pensioner can not have a successor Family Pensioner!
    Can not pass on to successive generations! Where will be the end?

    If the "woman family pensioner" is the spouse of the deceased govt. servant then family pension is admissible to the widowed daughter of the deceased govt. servant subject to fullfilment of certain conditions.

    Kindly refer to OM dated 28.4.2011 in this regard (http://circulars.nic.in/WriteReadDat...P_28042011.pdf)

    The said Om is available in the Pensioners' Portal of DOPPW, GOI.

    Link to the OM : http://circulars.nic.in/WriteReadDat...P_28042011.pdf

    CAN A "WOMAN FAMILY PENSIONER" already drawing family pension of her spouse HAVE A "SUCCESSOR FAMILY PENSIONER"?

    I am not clear!

    Respected Sir, I am also having similar doubt. The Order referred to, talks of eligibility for drawing family pension, and
    the position about succession of a demised family pensioner, is not explicitly spelt out and your query is very much valid.

    For illustration, Mr. A was drawing his pension and his wife passes away before his death. Here, as per the Order,
    the eligible family pensioner will start drawing the family pension.

    Mr. B while drawing his pension passed away and subsequently his wife becomes a family pensioner. When she also passes away, only the disabled daughters if any may be eligible for drawing family pension for life.

    Shri Victorji may also please throw light on this aspect, in the academic interest.
