PART 1: THE CONSOLIDATED ACT ON SOCIAL INSURANCE
PART 1: Death Grants
Upon the death of an insured person or pensioner, his widow, or eldest son or his heirs, shall be paid in a grant equivalent to six months wages based on the wage which is subject to contribution, if he was in employment, or to a grant of six months pension if he was a pensioner.
PART 2: Marriage Grant
The widow, daughter, daughter of a deceased son or the sister who are in receipt of a pension under the provisions of this Law shall be paid, if she marries, a marriage grant equivalent to fifteen times the pension she was receiving. Payment of the pension shall cease at the end of the month in which the marriage takes place. The marriage grant is payable once only.
PART 3: Funeral Expenses Grant
Where the service of an insured person terminates upon his death and he had participated in the social insurance for at least six continuous months, the person who bears the funeral expenses shall be paid a grant the amount of which shall be generally determined by a decision of the Board of Directors on the recommendation of the Director General and with the approval of the Minister for Labour and Social Affairs. Such grant shall be paid to the widow and where there is no widow to the eldest of his sons or to the person who establishes having paid for the funeral. Where no one comes forth to take care of the funeral, the General Organisation shall bear such expenses
PART 4: Assistance in case the Insured Disappears
In the case of the disappearance of an insured person who had participated in the social insurance for a period of not less than six continuous months or twentyfour interrupted months, or of the disappearance of a pensioner, his eligible dependants shall receive a monthly assistance equivalent to the pension to which they would be entitled if it was assumed that he had died. Payment of such assistance shall be effective from the beginning of the month in which he so disappeared and until he re-appears or until his death is established physically or legally. Where the insured person disappears in the course of performing his work, such assistance shall be determined by an amount equivalent to the pension payable in the case of death under the branch of social insurance against employment injuries. The Minister for Labour and Social Affairs shall determine, on the recommendation of the Board of Directors, the procedure which shall be followed to prove such disappearance. After the passage of four years from the date of such disappearance or after establishing the death physically or legally, the date of such disappearance shall, for the purposes of assessing the pension under the provisions of this Law, be deemed to be the date of the termination of service, and payment of such assistance shall continue thereafter in the form of a pension
