Orphan’s pension

Children up to 18 years old (or 25 years old if they are completing education) whose father or mother has died, are entitled to an orphan’s pension. This corresponds to 40 % of the old-age pension of the deceased. If both parents have died, two orphan’s pensions are paid, which together correspond to 60 % of the maximum old-age pension.
