PLIGHT OF WIDOWS IN GETTING THEIR PENSION ..
ABNORMAL DELAY IN SWITCHING OVER TO FAMILY PENSION BY BANKS.
It has come to our notice that some banks are taking abnormal time in switching over to Family pension, even though the JOINT NOTIFICATION is existing.
One of the branches of a Nationalised Bank has delayed the switching over as under. .
The pensioner died on 13-6-2017, the widow has reported the occurrence to the PDA.
This pension account is already a Joint account with this widow.
After a few days, the widow has submitted the Death certificate and the required Documents for converting to Family pension.
The PDA, after verifying the documents and the genuineness of the claim, has forwarded the Documents to their CPPC in July 2017 itself.
After a month period, the widow approached the branch and inquired about the progress about her claim. The reply was, we have not received the conversion.
Then, after two months also , the reply was the same.
After three months also, the pension was not credited.
The widow approached our Trust for a help in this regard.
We represented the delay in converting to Family pension ,as the
Joint Notification and Joint account already existing , by a letter and .over phone.
Now it is more than 6 months passed, the pension is not credited ,
The widow is facing sever financial hardship and mental agony without pension..
In view of the above facts, we suggest that where ever the Joint Notification is available in the PPO, the paying branch itself may switch over to Family pension, if the genuineness is established and start Disbursing the eligible rate of pension and report to their CPPC for updating the PARTICULARS/ DATAs in the package (system)
The process of Documentation may continue , as the widow will be drawing her pension through the same branch only. Any excess payment may be recovered as per undertaking .
We request that these points may be brought to the notice of Apex level of Bankers by all veterans and ESM Associations...

Dear Veteran brothers,
During our interactions with our visiting Veterans , we came to know that many of them are of the view that,
After discharge/ Release from Military , there is no Link between Record Offices and the Pensioners. THIS IS INCORRECT .
The Link between Veterans and Record office continues till our death and further continues with our Family members also- Wife and eligible children
Sons and Daughters become eligible for pension after the Demise of both the Parents.
Sons up to the age of 25 yrs or Marriage which ever is early
For Handicapped sons for life.
Daughters: Unmarried / Divorced / Deserted / Widow till marriage and for
Handicapped for life.
Our Prime duty is to inform the occurrences to Record office., that is
Marriage after discharge from service.
- Birth of children after discharge from service
- Death of wife / Divorce with first wife.
- Second Marriage. ( Second Marriage when First Wife is alive is VOID)
- Change of Religion
- Change of Name of Self and wife – by Gazette notification
- Latest, Aadhar Card, PAN card. and address.
And we should obtain Part II order published for all the occurrences.
Without Part II order we can not avail the facilities like Scholarship , Family pension and Priority for Government Jobs / Allotments., Marriage Grand for Daughters etc..
NOTE: Still some of our Pre- 1985 veterans have not applied for Endorsement of Family pension due to Ignorance. If any, please do it immediately to avoid mental agony and financial Hardships to our Wife after our Demise.
Those who have applied , please confirm the Joint Notification is received by way of a PPO .
like S/ JN/……/year etc. Other wise write to RO again for confirmation
Take this matter as a serious one.
Dear Veteran brothers and our ESM Associations are requested to please covey this message to all our Veterans and families and guide them suitably..
