After a settlement, reapply for a widow's or widower's pension from statutory accident insurance

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

The employers' liability insurance associations and accident insurance funds will 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 civil partnerships. In addition, the insured person must have died as a result of an insured event, such as an accident at work.

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

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

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

An application is required for this purpose.

It may be that you also have claims to a survivor's pension, pension, maintenance or other pension in connection with another marriage or partnership. Please indicate this on the application. Under certain circumstances, several benefits may be offset against each other.
