One of our employee died during the course of duty, he is having 2 wives here the problem is who will get widow pension.. Please suggest....
From India, Bangalore
Dear Thejas,
Please suggest who has been declared by him as nominee at the joining time.
Instead you take a legal heir certificate from the wife, it shall be their responsibility only and not the company's burden.

Thanks for your reply sir
He declared nominee as a 2nd wife but 1st wife made death certificate on her name.
2nd wife don't have any proof of marriage
kindly look in to the below comment one of the senior was commented like this.. i need your comments is it correct
Note.—In cases where there are two or more widows, family pension shall be payable to the eldest surviving widow. On her death it shall be payable to the next surviving widow, if any. The term “eldest” would mean seniority with reference to the date of marriage"

That is what I am stating Thejas,you should ask the 2nd wife or even the 1st wife to get the legal heir certificate, then proceed to submit in PF office.
It is their issue only and not company's.
