The accrual is the sum of the instalments or pension shares not collected by the retiree at the time of termination of the pension (thirteenth monthly payment for the instalments accrued or the portion of the last month of pension due).
The benefit is no longer due upon death of the retiree or forfeiture of the right.
The death benefit is due:
- to the surviving spouse;
- in the absence of the spouse, to the living children at the time of the retiree's death;
- in the absence of spouse and children, to other legitimate or testamentary heirs.
The claim must be submitted to INPS online via the dedicated service.
