WHAT TO DO IF A PRE-1985 VETERAN DIED WITHOUT ENDORSEMENT OF FAMILY PENSION

 




Dear veteran brothers, , 
We have  time and again  advising  our veterans , to confirm that all Pre-1985  retirees, have applied for endorsement of family pension  / joint notification  to avoid great hardships to their WIFE  in getting their family pension.   We are sorry to note  that still some  veterans have not done so.  
We request  you  all to check up whether  the copy of JOINT NOTIFICATION PPO is available  if not available , please apply for a duplicate copy from your Record Office.

There was no Joint Notification of spouse in the PPO prior to 1-4-1984. Time and again it was emphasized to apply for Endorsement of Family pension by the Living Pensioners. It was not taken seriously by the pensioners. Many widows face financial harship due to the non-availability of Joint Notification.

When the pensioner dies without Joint Notification, the Widow has to do the followings:

Ensure that her name is in the Discharge Certificate/ PPO. If the Part II order has been published for marriage, the name will be there positively.

Intimate the death of her husband to the respective Record Office along with the Original Death certificate and also to the Bank branch from where her husband was drawing pension.
Then send a Claim  application for Family pension to Record Office..
If everything is in order in the service records, the record office will send the Claim form set in Triplicate.

The claim form will contain::
Non-Re-marriage certificate, LTA certificate, Bank details( she has to open a bank a/c) and other family details.
Pass port size photo( 3 numbers) duly attested by Soldiers board/ Gazetted Officer., Thumb impression of all fingers,
Legal heir certificate, Domicile certificate from Village Admin.officer , 2 witnesses by Local respectable people.
If the widow happened to be Second wife, then the particulars of the children born to the first wife to be furnished . In this case, if the children fulfill the conditions, then the pension will be divided.
The set of forms in Triplicate, duly filled, signed, attested to be send to Record Office through District Sainik board.
If there is un-due delay in claiming for pension, the reason to be informed
.
If all the particulars , required certificates are correctly sent, the Sanction order for Family pension will be received from CDA/ RO with in a period of six months.

All veterans are requested to help such widows in your area to avoid financial hardship to the grieved family.

BENEFITS OF DSP ACCOUNT FOR PENSIONERS- MIGRATED TO SPARSH

 


Dear veteran brothers,

There is a doubt  being raised by  many  of us  regarding the Benefits under  DSP  (Defence Salary Package) accounts   after our pension a/c migration to SPARSH.

This DSP  account is presently in PNB and SBI.

We all know that, there are so many benefits  to DSP account holders. 

Pension  is being credited  in the DSP account holders in PNB and SBI.  The pension was processed and  disbursed through CPPC of PNB and SBI.  This  was OK.   But  now, most of our  accounts are migrated to SPARSH and CPPC  of banks have no role to play.

Here only the doubt arises.  As the pension is not credited by CPPC of Banks,  whether the benefits of DSP  is still available to us after migration to SPARSH .

There were many queries  from many ESM associations  and veterans.

It is now clarified  that, those who have DSP account  with the Banks and their  pension is credited  by whether  CPPC  or  SPARSH  ,are eligible for  the benefits of DSP accounts.

Punjab National Bank has issued a circular  in this regard  confirming the benefits.

PNB  Rakshak Plus Scheme  - in their circular  04/2024 dated 12-03-2024..

It is also confirmed from our  ARUPPUKOTTAI  ESM WELFARE ASSOCIATION-   They have informed that the benefit is availed for one  veteran who died in an accident recently..

This DSP scheme benefit  is also available to Para Military forces like BSF, CRPF, CISF, ITBP etc.

Our Veterans may please  share this information to all others.
