The High Civil Appeals Court upheld the decision ordering a woman to return BD30,000 to the General Organisation for Social Insurance (GOSI) after she received her late husband’s salary for 10 years, although she got married again. The woman’s first husband died, and she was entitled to receive his pension.

However, she got married again, and she was paid for 10 years before it was discovered that she got married again. As a result, GOSI filed a court file against the woman, demanding her to pay the aforementioned amount of money which equals the money she received.

“According to the local law, the beneficiary of pensions is stipulated to notify the competent authorities in the event they got married again in order to make the necessary steps, including stopping paying the pension to her. However, the woman failed to do so. Thus, she has to pay BD30,000 to GOSI,” the court ruling revealed.
