Compatibilities / Incompatibilities

Are orphanage pensions caused by the father and mother compatible?

Yes, but the increase with the corresponding percentage corresponding to widowhood many only be applicable to pensions originated by one of the parties. The maximum pension, for each one of them (father/mother) is 100% of the regulatory base.

Is receiving an orphan's pension compatible with working?

Is compatible with the work of orphaned children aged under 18, or orphans over this age who have had their capacity to work reduced by a percentage that is classed as a having a permanent absolute or serious degree of disability.
For non-disabled orphans aged over 18 (and under 22-24), the orphan's pension will be compatible with any working income that is received by the orphan as long as, when calculated on an annual basis, it does not exceed theSMI including the two extra payments, which is also calculated on an annual basis.
If the orphan has a degree of disability greater than or equal to 33%, they may be a beneficiary until they turn 24 years old, as long as they do not work or when carrying out this work their income is lower than the current SMI calculated on an annual basis.

If during the calendar year there are alternating periods of work an inactivity, this right will remain as long as the established limit is not exceeded. 

Income is calculated using its full amount, apart from the income arising from business activities or self-employed work, which is calculated using its net amount. 

I am receiving a pension in favour of family members and on reaching 65 I shall request a senior citizen pension from SOVI, can I collect both pensions?

The family members pension is incompatible with receiving any other public pension, so you will have to choose between them.
