Widow pension is a type of pension that is given to the family of a deceased employee under Employees’ Pension Scheme. The other pensions paid out to the families of deceased employees are:

- Child pension

- Orphan pension

Widow pension or vridha pension is paid to the widow of the employee eligible for pension. The pension amount, in this case, will be payable until the widow’s death or remarriage.
