7th Pay Commission: The government has given a new gift to the central employees. According to the rules, now the government will provide pension facility to the family of central employees. If both husband and wife are government employees in the family, then in such a situation their family will also get the right to family pension. This decision has been taken under the Central Civil Services Pension (CCS Pension) 1972. If two employees die after retirement, then in such a situation the children (nominee) in their family will get pension. This pension can be up to a maximum of about Rs 1.25 lakh.
Children will get pension only in this condition
To take advantage of this pension, the employees have to fulfill certain conditions. According to Rule 54 (11) of CCS Pension 1972, if both husband and wife are central employees and one person dies, then the other person will get his family pension. On the other hand, if both the persons die after retirement, then in such a situation their child will get the facility of family pension.
Now you will get pension up to Rs 1.25 lakh
Now the maximum limit of pension of central employees is 2.5 lakhs. But, if both the husband and wife die, then in such a situation 50 percent of one pension i.e. 1.25 lakh and the other 30 percent i.e. Rs 75000 will be given.
Earlier, so much pension facility was available
Earlier, on the death of an employee, his family used to get pension facility. But, it was available only up to Rs 45 thousand. To give this pension, Pension Rule 54 (11) was followed. On the other hand, if after the death of both the parents, in the event of the children getting the benefit of both the pensions, this amount was 27 thousand rupees. According to the earlier pension rule, earlier 50 percent of 90 thousand i.e. 45 thousand rupees and 27 thousand rupees (in case of getting the benefit of two pensions) was available.
