Who is entitled?
The pension is payable where a member who is receiving a pension dies and leaves behind, other than a spouse, a dependent adult with severe disabilities.
1. The disabled dependent needs to be certified by the SPF Medical Board.
2. The deceased parent/guardian needs to have been benefiting from a Retirement Pension at the time of death.
3. The benefit is payable at the time of death of one parent only. Should the second parent pass away the dependent will continue receiving the pension for life.
4. Where the deceased member has a surviving spouse, the disabled dependent will be entitled to 40% and the spouse 50% of the pension. The guardian may choose from which parent to make the claim from.
