6. If a previous or existing participant of the National Pension Insurance program has died after reaching the age of 65 but before claiming the Old-Age Pension Benefit, is the individual’s heir-at-law entitled to claim the payment? Will the heir receive any payments?

The Old-Age Pension Benefit is offered to ensure the basic economic safety of the insured person when they become old. Once the insured person has died, the protection is no longer required. The rights and obligation of the insured person, furthermore, will be discontinued at the time of death. No benefit claim will therefore be allowed. The heir-at-law will not be entitled for the claim, either. The eligible survivor-in-line, if any, will however be entitled to claim the Survivor Pension Payment according to relevant regulations.
