1. From date of death of the employee the pension would accrue to the family according to Tamilnadu Pension Rules. It would be 30% of the salary last drawn or average of the last ten months (if the last drawn salary was less due to any reason like availing unearned leave on half pay etc) besides the Death / Retirment Gratuity, leave salary, Gen Provident Fund due to the late employee would be released to the widow or the heirs if the widow is no more!

    Contact the office last served by him with death certificate and a letter from the head of family, your mother or eldest son. They would guide you on the formalities.

    A correction please. The FP would not be the 30% of last salary with all allowances as it is, but that of the Basic salary drawn last, plus the Dearness Pay (DA deemed to be pay and fixed from time to time). Since the pay bands have been revised in the last Pay Commission, for state employees, in acordance with Central staff scales, the revised pay scales would be applied if the individual died before refixation of pay in the new scales.
