I received questions from many visitors about the admissibility of Family Pensions to Dependent Disabled and Retarded Children of Government employees. After searching all the related questions I have reached the point that such children of civil servants are eligible for the family pension. The details are as under:
Family Pension to Dependent Disabled / Retarded Children of Govt Employee
The Government of Punjab, Finance Department issued a Notification on 18-07-1994 in connection with Revised Pay Scales 1994 for BPS-01 to BPS-22 employees. As per para 8 (b) of this Notification, the dependent disabled and retarded child has the right to get a family after the death of their father/mother. The Contents of Para 8 (a) are as under:
“Grant of family pension to dependent disabled/retarded children for life without any age limit”
Pension for Life and No Age Limit
According to the above para, the disabled/insensible dependent son/daughter will get the family pension without any age limit. In generally a son is eligible for a family pension till the age of 21 years age. But in this case, the disabled/insensible son/daughter will get the family pension without any restrictions on age. They will get the family pension till their life.
Federal Government Notification
Federal Government of Pakistan, Finance Division also issued the same orders that are reproduced as under:
8. The following relief to the widows, dependents, retarded and incapacitated children, and invalid pensioners shall be allowed with effect from 01-06-1994:
