Judgment No. 1955
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
According to Annex IV, Article 27, first paragraph, of the General Conditions of Employment governing servants at Eurocontrol, the divorced wife of a servant or former servant of Eurocontrol can only claim a survivor's pension if, at the date of former husband's death, she can justify her entitlement to receive monthly maintenance payments. In the present case, the complainant agreed to a lump-sum payment from her former husband in full and final settlement of his obligation to pay maintenance. Therefore, she cannot claim a survivor's pension.
