Government of the Punjab, Finance Department has issued notification regarding drawing of two family pensions at the same time (Double Family Pension). Detail is as under:
I am directed to refer to this Department’s circular letter of even number dated 11th September 2015 (copy enclosed). A question has arisen that when a pensionary husband or wife dies and subsequently living family pensioner also dies, then how could the family pension be claimed by an unmarried daughter, i.e. either of father or mother (who was also a retired government servant).
The matter has been examined in the Finance Department. It is clarified that an un-married daughter/any other eligible family member will have the option to draw only one family pension; i.e. either of his/her/their mother or father, whichever is more beneficial.
