YET ANOTHER WIDOW HELPED IN CLAIMING FAMILY PENSION
Smt.Saraswathy felt sorry for the delay in approaching us and sincerely thanked our Liaison Officer Sgt.S.kanthiah.
On the News in the air about our services, one widow called on us for a help in getting her family pension.
Name: Smt.Saraswathy W/O Late S.Panidan Rank: STO (Navy)
PPO.NO fo deceased: S/ 19559/ 1975
PDA: I O B, Kurukkalpatti, Sankarankovil-TK , Tirunel;veli-Dist, TN.
Date of death of Pensioner: 08-04-2012.
She explained the problems of not getting pension after the demise of her husband even after 8 months..
On scrutinizing the available papers with her, we noticed that he(pensioner) was a Pre-1985 retiree. There was no Joint Notification available . The widow is also not aware whether the application for Endorsement of Family pension was sent by her husband or not.
Now, we guided her by sending a Requisition letter to the Naval Record office- CABS, Mumbai for clarification whether the Joint Notification was done or not.
The innocent widow was satisfied with our efforts and thanked us for such a help.
