Re: 1st and 2nd pillar benefits for surviving spouse with B permit

Sadly this happened to a guy who worked for me. He was from South Africa and died while on a local, permanent contract. His wife (B-permit) did have to leave the country, but the authorities were sympathetic, and gave her plenty of time. She gets the benefits, as defined in the pension contract, paid in SA - widow and orphan's pension. Not sure about 1st pillar benefits though.

Our employer saw them right though. They made him an ex-gratia payment which bought his pension up to the maximum amount. He was only 33.
