Enhanced Family Pension – Recommendations of 7th Pay Commission
7th CPC has recommended to continue the existing system of Enhanced Family Pension – It was proposed to 7th Pay Commission to increase the number of years in the case of death after retirement
The Commission has received representations for increasing the existing time period of seven years (in the case of death after retirement) for enhanced family pension from the existing seven years or 67 years, whichever is less, to ten years in case of death of retirees.
Analysis and Recommendations : The current rates of enhanced family pension are
i. In the case of death in service: Payable to the family of a government servant for a period of ten years from the date of death of a government servant, without any upper age limit.
ii. In the case of death after retirement: Payable for a period of seven years or up to the date on which he would have attained 67 years had he survived, whichever is less.
The Commission notes that the revision with regard to period of eligibility for the enhanced family pension of ten years was made based on recommendations of the VI CPC Report. No further change is being recommended by this Commission.
