Service Description

Even if you have received a settlement in the course of remarriage, you can again receive a survivor's pension from statutory accident insurance on application and under certain conditions.

Employer's liability insurance associations and accident insurance funds pay you a survivor's pension. The prerequisite for this is that you were married until the death of the insured person. The same applies to registered partnerships. In addition, the insured person must have died as a result of an insured event, for example an accident at work.

If you remarry or enter into a new civil partnership, your entitlement to a survivor's pension ends. However, you will receive a settlement of 24 times the monthly amount of the survivor's pension.

You can again receive a previously settled survivor's pension from the statutory accident insurance if the first remarriage or the first new civil partnership

  • dissolved (divorced),
  • annulled or declared null and void.

An application is required for this.

It is possible that you are also entitled to a survivor's pension, pension, maintenance or other pension in connection with another marriage or partnership. Please state this when applying. Several benefits may be offset against each other.
