The petitioner is wondering how the principle of equal rights is respected by the rule that a widow(er) loses her (his) right to a widow(er)-pension, only on the basis of a new marriage. The petitioner asks to verify the legality of this practice and to issue a policy decision to rectify this mistake.

Thank you for your support, Holger Lüers
