• a person who has not been employed and has reached the specified age for the granting of a pension, if that person does not have the right to receive a State pension or insurance compensation due to an accident at work or occupational disease;
• a person who has been issued an opinion regarding disability by the State Commission for Health and Health Examiner Doctors, if such person does not have the right to receive a State pension (except for a survivor's pension for a disabled person) or insurance compensation due to an accident at work or occupational disease;
• a child, if it has not reached age (18 years) and the deceased survivor is not entitled to a State pension or insurance fee. After reaching the age of 18, the benefit shall be paid if the child learns in an institution of general education or vocational education and is not older than 20 years or studies in an institution of higher education (full-time presence) and is not older than 24 years.
