Hi,
Yes. She is eligible for Pension very much.
As per PF norms spouse is eligible for Pension in case of death of the member while in service and the employer has deposited funds in his EPS account for at least one month

Employer deposited funds in EPS account of employee till the age of 58 yrs. after that employer full contribution goes to EPF. Is she still eligible?
Hi, Hope pension contribution made is more than a month. If so as already stated spouse is eligible for pension.
Dear Sir,
EPFO Denied to pay widow pension and the reason they give is the member has already attained the age of 58 years while in service and the total service was less than 10 years, so pension benefits cannot be given.
