Survivors' benefit

All persons protected under social security systems should be entitled to survivors' benefit. A woman who was maintained by her husband at the time of his death, or children that suffer the loss of support following the death of the insured worker, should be entitled to a periodical payment. The right of the widow may be conditional on her incapacity for self-support, and the benefit may be reduced or suspended if the person is engaged in gainful activity. This benefit may also be conditional upon a minimum period of contribution or employment. If a widow has no child and is presumed to be incapable of self-support, a minimum duration of the marriage may be required.
