Compatibilities / Incompatibilities

  • The widowhood pension is compatible with any income from the beneficiary's work and with any retirement or permanent disability pension that they may be entitled to.
  • If the originator does not have active contributor or assimilated contributor status on the date of death, the widowhood pension will be incompatible with the granting of a different widowhood pension from any of the Social Security schemes, unless the certified contributions in each of the schemes overlap for a period of at least 15 years.
  • The widowhood pensions of the system are compatible with SOVI pensions. When the widowhood pension and the SOVI pension are concurrent, the total amount may not exceed twice the amount of the minimum widowhood pension established at any given time for beneficiaries over the age of 65. If it does exceed this limit, the amount of the SOVI pension will be reduced by the amount required in order to not exceed the specified limit.
  • If the widowhood pension is still being received, even if the pensioner has remarried or formed a common law marriage, due to meeting the necessary requirements, the new widowhood pension that may be activated as a result of the death of the new spouse or common law marriage, shall be incompatible with the widowhood pension(s) that were previously being received and just one of these must be chosen.
