Survivor Benefits

Survivor’s benefits are payable to dependants of a deceased LAPF member. The benefit is intended to compensate for the loss of economic support previously provided by LAPF member who has died. Survivors’ benefits are normally paid to the deceased’s widow/ widower, children or parents. “Dependant” is defined in the Act as widower/widow(s), any child under the age of 21 or up to the age of 25 in case of a disabled child(s). And where there is no dependant, spouse or child - parents of the deceased. Where contribution credits are less than 180 months, only survivors gratuity is payable. Otherwise the survivors will qualify for monthly pension.
