    Orphan's pension

    What does the orphan’s pension consist of?

    The orphan’s pension is an economic benefit that consists of a temporary pension that is granted to the children of the deceased and those contributed by their spouse, provided they meet the required requirements, with the sole objective of protecting the situation of economic need caused for the death of the person originating the benefit.

    Why process the orphan’s pension here?

    Although anyone can process the orphan’s pension independently and on their own, thanks to the mechanisms set up by Social Security for all citizens, going to a professional offers the following advantages and guarantees.

    Security and tranquility

    The orphan’s pension is a milestone that is requested once in a lifetime and that, due to the unpleasant circumstances for which it is requested, normally the person who wishes to process it is a minor or is not emotionally prepared to carry out said management, giving rise to much restlessness. It is quite common that, in addition, the orphan’s pension is the only income available to it, hence the need for speed and efficiency. Finally, the extemporaneous processing has very important economic repercussions. The security offered by the processing by a professional constitutes a more than valid and real guarantee to obtain and obtain the benefit that the orphan’s pension entails.

    Savings and comfort

    You do not need to go anywhere to manage the orphan’s pension. Through our experts in this type of area, you will receive all the necessary information by phone to request and process the orphan’s pension. In addition, all the necessary documentation that you must provide us will be collected through a courier that we will send to your address. As you can see, we take care of absolutely everything. In this way, you will not only save time, but also travel.

    Affordable for all people

    Both short-term and long-term costs are the most affordable on the market. The amount of the procedure is not relevant, if the necessary time that you should spend obtaining the necessary information, requesting an appointment, traveling, etc. is considered. In many cases, waiting the shift at the Social Security office takes a long time, and there are countless times that you must return with additional documentation. Similarly, if you go to a labor lawyer when the pension has already been resolved and it is wrong, the only way left will be the previous claim and subsequent demand with the extra economic cost.

    100% customized

    The numerous variations that intervene when processing the orphan’s pension is due to the enormous number of different cases that usually occur. Each management is different and all factors must be taken into account so that the economic benefit to be charged is the maximum possible. Forgetting certain information or documentation can be crucial. For this reason, we take care of carefully analyzing each case and investigating the working life of the deceased in order to obtain the best orphan’s pension possible for their children.

    How to calculate the orphan’s pension?

    The economic benefit of the orphan’s pension is calculated applying the percentage of 20% to the corresponding regulatory base, this being different according to the employment situation of the deceased on the date of death and the cause determined by the death.

    When neither of the parents survives, the benefits corresponding to the absolute orphan will be increased, according to the situation in question, in the established amounts.

    The sum of death and survival pensions will be limited to 100 percent of the causal entity’s regulatory base, with exceptions.

    The pension is paid monthly, with two extraordinary payments in the months of June and November, except for occupational accident and illness pensions, which are divided between the twelve ordinary monthly payments.

    The pension has guaranteed minimum amounts and is revalued at the beginning of each year. When the orphan is under 18 years of age, the orphan’s pension will be paid to whoever is in charge of it and, directly to the orphan, when the orphan reaches 18 years of age. The pension is exempt from taxation for the purposes of Personal Income Tax (IRPF).
