Receive parental pension from statutory accident insurance

Description

The employers' liability insurance associations and accident insurance funds will pay you as a parent a regular parental pension if your child dies as a result of an accident at work or on the way to work, or a recognized occupational disease.

This applies to

  • Parents,
  • stepparents and
  • foster parents.

You will receive the parental pension for as long as you would have been entitled to maintenance from the deceased on account of dependency if the occupational accident, commuting accident or occupational disease had not occurred.

The pension is:

  • for one parent, 20 percent,
  • for a pair of parents 30 percent

of the annual earnings (salary and other forms of earnings such as bonuses or holiday pay) of the deceased.

If you receive the parental pension as a parent couple and your wife or husband dies, you will not immediately receive the parental pension for one parent (20 percent). Instead, in this case, you will continue to receive the amount for one parent (30 percent) for 3 months.

Your own income is not counted towards the parental pension.

If your daughter or son dies as a result of an accident at work, a commuting accident or an occupational disease, you will receive a parental pension if the following conditions are met:

The deceased, at the time of death, from his or her wages or earned income:

  • contributed substantially to your support; or
  • Would have contributed substantially to your support in the future but for the insured event.

You are also entitled to a parent's pension if.

  • The deceased had a reduction in earning capacity (MdE) of 50 percent or more as a result of these occupational diseases:
    • Silica dust lung disease (silicosis).
    • Silica pulmonary disease associated with active pulmonary tuberculosis (silico-tuberculosis)
    • Asbestos dust lung disease (asbestosis) or diseases of the pleura caused by asbestos dust
    • Lung cancer, laryngeal cancer or ovarian cancer
      • in connection with asbestos dust lung disease (asbestosis)
      • in connection with disease of the pleura caused by asbestos dust, or
      • if there is evidence of exposure to a cumulative dose of asbestos fiber dust at the workplace in an amount corresponding to the legal requirements
  • and this occupational disease contributed to the death.

The same regulations apply to stepchildren and foster children.

  • Proof of maintenance, for example:
    • Maintenance order from the court
    • regular, earmarked transfers or receipts of money, for example rent payments
    • contract concluded between the parties

There are no costs involved.

There is no deadline.

  • Appeal
  • Detailed information on how to lodge an appeal can be found in the notification from your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund.
