father and mother of the participant, so long as they were
financially dependent upon him/her at the time of death and when
there is no surviving spouse, former spouse, de facto partner or children of the deceased entitled to a pension.
If at the time of the participant’s death there was a spouse, former spouse, de facto partner or children of the deceased entitled to a pension, the father and mother shall only be entitled to the pension when it becomes vacant due to the death or loss of legal capacity of the spouse, former spouse, de facto partner or children entitled to a pension.
As of 1/1/2013, it is agreed that the
presumption that the requirement of economic dependence occurs when the total income of the family unit is lower than double the interoccupational minimum earnings in force. In single parent families, the income limit is set at the interoccupational minimum wage..
Each parent is entitled to
15% of the basis for calculation, or 7.5% in the event that the person entitled to the pension died after being declared incapacitated while on or as a result of active duty and they were assigned the corresponding extraordinary pension.
In no event will either of the parents of the deceased civil servant be entitled to an increase in the amount of their pension because the other parent dies or is no longer eligible to receive theirs.
