Request pension settlement for survivors in statutory accident insurance in the event of remarriage

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

As a widow or widower and as a registered partner, you will receive a survivor's pension for 2 years, as long as no remarriage takes place during this period. The pension is 30 percent of the annual earnings of the deceased insured person.
If you remarry or enter into a new civil partnership as a survivor, the widow's or widower's pension from the agricultural accident insurance can be settled once. You must submit an application for this.
You will receive 24 times your monthly pension as a settlement. A monthly amount is the gross average amount of the survivor's pension paid in the past 12 months.
If a pension settlement was paid when you remarried or entered into a new civil partnership and the remarriage or civil partnership was declared null and void, dissolved or annulled, you should contact your accident insurance carrier for clarification of benefits.
