Print page

If you are widowed or are a surviving civil partner and do not qualify for a Widow's, Widower's or Surviving Civil Partner's Contributory Pension (for more information, log on to 'www.welfare.ie') based on either your own or your late spouse's/civil partner's insurance record, you may qualify for a Widow's, Widower's or Surviving Civil Partner's Non- Contributory Pension. This is a means-tested payment and we take account of any income you have when deciding if you qualify. If you have qualified children, you may qualify for a One- Parent Family Payment. For more information, log on to 'www.welfare.ie'.

Note
Since September 2006, Widow's, Widower's or Surviving Civil Partner's Pension is only available to those under age 66. Once you reach age 66, you will be invited to apply for State Pension (Non-Contributory).
