Eligibility:

Your wife must be legally married to you before you reach the minimum age for old-age pension (55 years).

 

 

You must have completed at least 36 months of insurable employment under EOBI. You must have been receiving or were eligible for old-age or invalidity pension at the time of death.

 

 

Process:

Download and fill Form PE-2 (Claim for Survivor Pension): This form is available on the EOBI website or regional offices. Ensure you have supporting documents like your wife's CNIC, marriage certificate, death certificate, and your pension payment slip.

 

 

Submit the completed form and documents: You can submit them to the EOBI regional office where your pension was processed or through any dedicated EOBI facilitation center.

 

 

Verification and Processing: EOBI will verify the documents and calculate the survivor pension amount based on your pension.

 

 

Pension Disbursement: Once approved, your wife will receive the monthly pension through bank transfer or designated payment centers. 

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

What if my wife remarries?

Her survivor pension will cease upon her remarriage.

 

 

Can I nominate someone else besides my wife?

No, the EOBI survivor pension is only granted to the legal spouse.

 

 

How long does the processing take?

Typically, it takes 3-4 months for verification and approval. 

 

 

Additional Points:

Ensure your wife has an active bank account for receiving the pension.

If you don't have the required documents, EOBI can guide you on alternative proof of eligibility.

You can track the claim status online through the EOBI portal using your CNIC number.
