Social Welfare in connection with Deceased Persons
According to the Social Insurance Scheme in Cyprus if a person who paid taxes and contributions on earnings dies, certain family members such as widows (even divorced widows), children or dependent parents are eligible to receive death benefits. In most of the cases the more contributions on earnings an individual pays during his life the higher the survivor pension paid to his family members will be.
The death related benefits in Cyprus includes the widow's pension, survivor benefit, orphans’ benefit, death benefit and funeral grant. Use the left hand side menu for more information on each benefit.
