During the discussions in the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly Session on 7th May, on the Human Welfare Department and the Pensioners and pension beneficiaries Department, the Tamil Nadu State Finance Minister P T R Pazhanivel Rajan responded about the family pension scheme details. He explained that the government has taken action to simplify the conversion of job-earned pensions to the ‘Family Pension Scheme’. The various practical difficulties encountered in this conversion have been presented to the government.
As such, the State Government of Tamil Nadu has decided to simplify the procedure for this conversion of job-earned pension to Family Pension. For the new pensioners, the integrated fund and the name of the husband or wife will be registered.
Henceforth, it will be sufficient for all applications for family pension to enclose the Death Certificate of the Husband or wife!
Instead of the presently used Form-14 having the details of the pensioners, the minister informed that a simplified form facilitating easy dispersal of pension is being made!
As such, the State Government of Tamil Nadu has simplified the conversion of the job-earned Pension to ‘Family Pension’!
