You can use this service to apply via the Electronic Registry for state benefits for a widow/widower's pension, orphanhood pension and death grants on behalf of another person.
Persons who want to apply for one or more state death and survival benefits (widow/widower's pension, orphanhood pension or death grant) on behalf of another person.
After filling in the form, you will be told which documents are to be submitted and given the option of uploading them.
If you send the application as a legal representative of the future holder of the benefit, you must accredit this representation by attaching the power of attorney document approved for this purpose. This document can be downloaded in the associated documentation section. However, you can attach any legally valid document which is proof of the representation.
Also, only if you are asked for it after completing the form, you must send the authorisation document for recognition of benefits for the care of children or foster children, which is in the associated documentation section. If necessary, you will be redirected to download this authorisation document.
The total size of the documents to be attached must not exceed 4 Mb.
Once the process has been completed, you will receive a “proof of receipt” in PDF format.
If you do not receive the confirmation message, or if you receive an error or failed sending message, you should resubmit the application at another time or use other means.
The INSS will send the resolution of the application to the address of the interested party.
