For pension claims for transferral of pensions to survivors or for its suspension , Le Croci Funeral Home has signed an agreement with Rome Patronati ( offices that deal with pensions and social security matters ), and they will deal with everything for you.
For a reliable service of compilation and forwarding of relative papers for reversibility and suspension of the pension both in Rome and anywhere else we have established a contact with a data and documents collection center affiliated to us.
The death of the parent or spouse must be notified promptly to the social security institution (Inps, social security funds, etc.) that provides the pension.
Timely notification will prevent you from having to return benefits that are not due and, in particular, be able to assess with the social security institution whether there is any particular condition reserved for you such as a survivor’s pension, which is calculated on the basis of the pension received by the deceased, applying percentages that vary according to the degree of kinship
The death report must be filed and delivered to the Civil Registry office of the municipality of appurtenance within 24 hours of death. Le Croci Funeral Home deals with all the bureaucratic formalities.
Death of an Inps pensioner
In the case of the death of an Inps pensioner it is necessary to follow a series of procedures concerning the documentation that is to be returned to the same Social Security Institution
The reversibility pension or survivor’s pension is a benefit granted to certain members of the family of the deceased whether employed or a pensioner registered with one of the INPS' administrations: in particular, the benefit is called a survivor’s pension if the insured person had already retired at the time of death, and an indirect pension if the insured person was still working.
Persons entitled to a survivor’s pension
The survivor’s pension is paid to the spouse (if divorced, to be entitled the survivor must be beneficiary of a spousal maintenance ) to children (up to 26 years of age if university students, up to 21 years of age if high school students, otherwise up to legal age or without age limit if disabled) and, failing that, parents over 65 without pension or brothers and sisters with disabilities.
In order for reversibility to be granted to members of the family other than their spouse, anyone dependant on the deceased must also be cared for: the dependent minor is automatically considered but other family members must prove their dependency
Income limits on survivors' pensions
The income limits vary each year because they are based on the amount of the minimum pension: in 2019, the supplement to the minimum pension is EUR 513.01 per month. The survivor’s pension is reduced if the beneficiary also has other income. In such cases, the reduction in the survivor’s pension may vary from 25% to 50%.
Amount of survivor’s pension
The amount of the survivor’s pension, starting on the first day of the month following that of the death of the employee or pensioner, irrespective of the date on which the claim was lodged, corresponds to a percentage of the pension which was in payment to the deceased pensioner or which would have been paid
The percentages to be applied vary according to the eligible family members.
